    Yes, they froze at the same point on other players (which were other brands [Sony and Samsung]) and TT never responded to my emails.

    I do want to test BBaC on another player though, as that just happened. Curious if it will be a complete coaster on a different machine as well, unlike the other discs.

    I have all my TT movies backed up as mkv files (I use Plex), but not sure how to back up the 3D titles, I don't want a SBS copy.

    I hope Twilight is offering replacement discs for those that fail?

    I wouldn't hold my breath. I don't think any discs are sold with a lifetime warranty.

    Distributors will sometimes replace discs if there is a known defect acknowledged by the distributor. But that is not the case here.

    TT has replaced many discs that have had one-off problems (bad disc, damaged discs, etc), but that only helps if they had extras available. Since I think all 4 of John's items are OOP/Sold Out that might be difficult unless they have some old promo or used copies still sitting around.

    That’s unfortunately tricky. MakeMKV can make the file in the same format as the Blu-rays but I’m not sure what if any playback client can actually handle them. For 3D discs the best option may be to rip the entire disc as an ISO and keep that on a hard drive ready to be burned to a BD-R if needed.

    My one major complaint about Plex is the lack of 3D support in most places. But wonderful for 2D stuff.

    True. Although a few years is hardly a lifetime not to mention there is something about a company's good faith to its customers.

    There'll probably be a U. K. disc in the next few months as many of the films released by Twilight Time are now receiving a
    U. K. iteration.

    I ended up ripping them to ISO files, the problem then is to make a copy from that, I don't have a dual layer burner. would only make a BD-25, through the 1950's 3D features don't come in at more then 90m. give or take, there still is probably some compression. Of all the TT movies I have the 3D titles are the ones I'm most worried about.

    Thanks. I saw that and skipped right over it as I assumed it was one of the infamous Spanish bootlegs. I’ll have to get it.
