    YES! Warner are finally using Full-Bitrate AC-3 on their disks!!! I Hope Harry Potter is like that too!

    The Phantom Menace was 384kbit. I'm surprised nobody noticed/complained about that.

    That's because The Phantom Menace DD track was 448Kbps on DVD. The LD was 384Kbps.

    Those above also includes the 448kbs for their DD tracks.

    Ah good, so they finally switched to Full Bit-Rate AC3 Good!

    As for Twister, I knew about that one, a friend of mine has it and I borrowed it from him, I might borrow it again now that I have DTS Capability and proper speakers.

    When me and my friend went to see Queen Of The Damned, as the Warner logo played at the beginning, we immediately said "Only 384kbps on the DVD!" Hehe!

    A Matrix reissue with Full Bit-Rate DTS and Full Bit-Rate AC3 would be great too... I'd buy it since I don't have the original disk (But it's been sitting on my wanted list for a long time)

    It should also be noted that Ocean's 11 ALSO contains a DD 2.0 track, so that the 5.1 was not compromised for downmix
    Thumbs up Warner! Now if only you'd dump a certain "feature" of every DVD you release.... [​IMG]

    Careful, they might be thinking of widescreen as a feature (just kidding Warner Bros!) [​IMG]

    Cameron,

    Some DVD players (Pioneer and Sony models especially) often allow you to view the audio and video bitrates of a DVD whilst it is playing. You can even check what layer the video info you are viewing is encoded onto on RSDL discs on some players.

    Also, many DD decoders report the bitrate (and other pertinent information).

    Very good news. I'm surprised it took Warner so long to change their stance, although I really can't complain about the quality of their recent soundtracks.
