Got a reply from a Sony Rep, said they don't extend beyond the expiration date. He was nice enough to direct me to walmart

Quick question. Will expired UV codes that have never been used work?

Probably.

I have yet to find an expired UV code that did not work.

What movie(s) is it for?

It was for The Thing (re-make). It all worked out. One other question, is there any way to see if a UV code is still valid? I've purchased numerous used blu rays from gohastings and am curious if the code has been redeemed or not. I'm not looking to keep them for personal use, so I'm wondering if there's any way to see if they've been redeemed.

Flixster uses a two step process to redeem codes. So, if you enter a code and it takes you to the confirmation page rather than giving you an error message, the code should still be valid. As long as you don't redeem on that confirmation page, someone else can use the code.

Vudu uses a one step process when you're signed in. As soon as you enter a valid code, it is redeemed and added to your account. However, if you're not signed in and enter a code, I believe it will give you an error message if it's not valid or ask you to sign in if it is valid.

Flixster is not working on any of the devices I use. I am logged in but none of the movies are playing. I contacted Flixster and this was their response.

The authorization for Flixster to access your UltraViolet account has expired. To resolve the problem, go to the Account page when logged in on the Flixster website. You will see an option to unlink your UltraViolet account. When you unlink and re-link your account, the authorization will automatically be reset.

I tried doing that even before I contacted them. It does not work. Every time I click unlink it takes be right back to the same page to unlink again.

Anybody have any suggestions?

This may be a stupid question but is there anyway I can download a SD of a digital copy? I like HD but I don't want a 3+GB movie on my iPhone!

Specifically I really want a SD version of End of Watch, not the HD I got :/

If it is an itunes digital copy, you can choose to re-download SD or HD from your purchased items within the itunes store app on your iphone.

For UV, use the Flixster app. The file size should be between 1.5 to 2 GB.

sony also has a 2 step process, as does Universal if done from their sites.

I know the answer is probably no, but does anyone know of any way to tell if a code came from a Blu-ray or DVD? I have some codes that I was under the impression came from blu-rays, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I'd like to try and find out before trading more, and I'm not sure how to do that without calling and asking.

Only way I know how to check a code is on Flixster only, it gives you a chance to see the movie before you redeem it, however it doesn't say if it's SD or HD/HDX. To my best of knowing, also, there isn't like a secret code (digits at the beginning or end) to indicate if it's hd or sd. How do you get random codes? Usually it's either from your personal collection or someone gives it to you. I'd ask whoever gave you the code or look at the case.

I think the Itunes digital copy is easier, but don't use it too often.

Ultraviolet.....

Tried Resident Evil redemption. Sign up with Sony Pictures ultraviolet to redeem, install Silverlight and Download manager if I want it on laptop. Had to use IE as a button didn't show in Firefox. Then I could not link it to Flixster, password or username didn't match with UV, tried several times. Wouldn't let me get into flixster.com, when I login it keeps prompting me as it trys link accts but can't. I was able to get into account settings thru confirm email. Went to UVVU.com and it doesn't show Redemption there. Cancelled both accts out of frustration. 90 mins wasted.

I know people love UV and will say I did it wrong. I just didn't have the patience to spend more time reading FAQS and googling.

Use VUDU, problem solved.... Studio sites and flixster have issues at times. VUDU isn't perfect but I guarantee you'll have a better experience. And you can redeem almost all titles with VUDU...

Edit:
Also if you register with VUDU right now and link it to your UV account, they will give you 10 Free movies! Also VUDU is available on more devices (Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Mac, iOS, Andriod, Roku, Smart TV's & Blu-ray Players)

Very stupid question guys since I'm new to digital copies.

Are special features included in these digital copies, the HDX ones?

Some of the itunes movies will come with itunes extras. I haven't really seen anything for UV, I think the most I've gotten is a featurette or trailer

One other question,

I see that there is a watch in HDX and a Download in HDX option for movies. I don't imagine the watch in HDX will expire if the code was redeemed before the expiration date but is the Download option ever taken off servers or something?
