Has anyoneís shipped from ViaVision yet? This is the first preorder of one of their titles I didnít order directly from them; I went with DeepDiscount.com instead to save on shipping. ViaVision lists a 20/4 release but DD shows 29/4, so Iím not clear on whether the title has officially streeted or not.

I ordered via JB-Hifi and it shipped about one week ago.

But experience shows that it can take up to six weks for standard delivery from Australia to arrive in Germany.

So I guess 20/4 is legit. Maybe DD bumped their release date out to account for when their stock would arrive from Australia.

Received my copy today. The package is a keep case housed in a slip case. While the slip case is free of a ratings logo on the front cover (the logo is just a sticker on the outer foil), the keep case has the ratings logo printed on the front cover and there is no reversible sleeve.

The discs themselves are as bare bone as it gets. Static menues with just the option to choose an episode or to play all. No pop-up menue is available and the two audio tracks (Dolby Digital 5.1 and LPCM 2.0) have to be switched via the remote control. No subtitles, no bonus material, no trailers for any further releases, nothing.

Image quality is as good as can be expected from such a recently produced series, and there are chapter breaks about every five minutes.

with this being a via vision release, that doesn't necessarily mean anything. copy on ebay is being described as region free, so i'll assume such.

I only just picked this up...this is an upscale, right? It looks soft as hell (including the widescreen bars) and the on-screen text is both soft and aliased. Looks like the source file was maybe 720p at best?

Edit: Huh. Episode 2 is fine. Sharp and clear. For some reason only the first episode is a lower quality? Still annoying.

^ I watched the series on Paramount+ and had no issues with soft PQ or aliasing, so definitely the source used for the BD.

Amen brother. I picked this up recently and it's the first thing I noticed. Episode one leaves a lot to be desired in terms of picture quality. I emailed Via Vision and they suggested it was the player however episode two is fine. I sent them screenshots over three weeks ago explaining this but have not heard back yet.

Of course they blamed your player.

Edit: Episode 7 is borked as well.

Disgusting. Via Vision must know it's a defective product, especially after the screenshots I sent.

I remember back when Deadwood was first released on blu-ray in Australia and the audio was riddled with issues. At least Paramount took ownership of the issue and replaced my discs for free when the audio problems were resolved.

I screened episode 1 on my projection system last night and it looked good. It looked a lot better than either of those screen caps. Could there be a gamma setting issue?
