    I have a question for those of you in r2 with the Babylon 5 season one discs.

    The episode And The Sky Full of Stars, in both r2 and r4, has a problem in that any effects shots or shots involving CG were shown at the 1.33 ratio squashed into a 1.78 ratio - so the image looked short and fat.

    I have heard that replacement discs have been offered in r2 with corrected versions of this episode. Is this true? If so, could someone please provide the details?

    I ask because in the review of the r4 disc at Michael D's website, the following information is posted:

    Instructions on getting replacement of disc 2 for English Boxset customers

    The temporary address for the replacement is:

    Steven Hill
    Warner Home Video
    Warner House
    98 Theobald's Road
    London
    WC1X 8WB

    Return ONLY Disc 2 (not the full box) together with full name and address. A covering letter explaining that you wish to replace the disc is a good idea. I must point out though that this is for UK customers you may want to write to them before sending your disc. But I do know lots of people bought the German set in the UK and managed to get replacements from WB Germany.

    This has come about from 6 months worth of bugging WB. The remastered PAL discs do exist and there is no excuse for WB Australia not reissuing the R4 version.

    Hope this info helps.

    Moe - Thanks for that. Most helpful.

    I posted a comment on this at Michael D's website. Unfortunately, the response was not good.
