    Hi,

    I haven't been able to locate the "Why Letterbox" feature that is supposed to be on disc one. Can anyone point me in the direction of it? (and hopefully I haven't been staring at it and not seeing it. Wouldn't be the forst time...)

    Jimmy!

    Go to the Setup menu on disc 1, and select the red star.

    Ok, I also have a question. During the visual effects doc., deconstructing destruction I believe, (it's the one with Michael Bay and visual effects supervisor Eric Brevig), a red star periodically appears in the lower right corner.I know this takes you to some other clip via extended branching, but how do you do it? It's not the angle button. This might be a really stupid question.

    One has to wonder why they would make a featurette that would help an uninformed consumer an easter egg though...

    Chad, as I mentioned in my review on The Digital Bits, the Why Widescreen bit was made an Easter Egg because of problems in production. I got this direct from David Prior, and he was also quite dismayed it had to be made an EE.

    Does anyone else notice an audio dropout on the DTS track right as the end credits begin? This is the first time I have ever heard a dropout on my system, lasts only a split second, but it's noticeable.
