Very happy indeed that they are offering replacement discs. It's great to see them do the right thing here. It's a shame that this will cost them some money, and it may cause people to be a bit more cautious with pre-orders for the next set they release. Hopefully not, as them issuing a replacement program so quickly after release at least shows they are willing to take responsibility and correct any errors.

Maybe it means it's selling quite well. It does seem to be going out of stock and/or having price increases from different vendors. While that might be quite temporary, it's still a sign that sales are probably not terrible!

It's unlikely to cost them much at all. The cost of the discs isn't the the biggest problem, it's the cost of clearance rights that is the bigger problem, discs don't cost that much.

The fact that they're responding this quickly will should instill some trust in fans and anyone else who has bought it early. So hopefully it won't affect sales of the next set.

Yup. That's their automatic response, they always send that. You should receive a second appropriate one later.

Well the cost of the actual discs might not be too expensive, but they still do have to be manufactured, possibly in certain quantities at a time. Also, they are spending their time correcting errors, so that's man-hours spent on this that wasn't factored in.

I'm in the states (California) and just received my set from Amazon.UK. That was FAST! I wasn't expecting this for at least a week. Beautiful set! Absolutely beautiful.

As for the replacement discs - Probably no word yet if they'll send these to the states, right?

My expectations for this were pretty low but I am blown away how good an old BBC taped PAL source can look cleaned up, restored and delivered on a bluray. If only Blake's 7 could one day look this good!

Gives me a bit of small hope for the upcoming Red Dwarf discs.

(Watched upscaled to 4K on an Oppo 203, 55" 4K Sony Bravia)

Just received my box set (it looks beautiful and I haven't even removed the plastic yet) and promptly e-mailed about replacement discs. I'll try and get a bit of it watched on the weekend. Even if the transfers don't look utterly perfect (which I never expected considering the source and age), the fact that they're sorting out the errors is great, and I'm just happy to finally have these coming to Blu-Ray properly.

Yes, they told me they'll send the replacement discs to the States.

Nice that you got it so fast! Did they send to you via Royal Mail or another courier?

Thanks for the replacement disc info. Going to email them now.

Yes. Amazon sent it Royal Mail.

Presume you mean proof of purchase. Screengrabs of the order profile from their site and your dispatch confirmation email (both with any irrelevant personal information cut out or covered) attached to your BBC email should be more than enough.

My first copy arrived a week early but the disc tray glue didn't hold and fell off on its own, so I sent it back for a refund to buy a new copy. I received my second copy a week later from Zavvi, and that arrived crushed and damaged. Preparing to send it off as I write this.

I've now just sent off for my third copy of this set from Amazon.

I'm having fun.

Watched the whole set this weekend and thought it looked fantastic. Obvious models are still obvious, of course, and the Wirrn or whatever they're called are still risible. Loved it though.

I was mildly surprised that they put each story on its own disc. Perhaps they are thinking of selling them individually in the future.

The phase is inverted in the right speaker channel. It's mono audio, but it's normal to deliver the same signal to bother speakers. In this case, one of them is wrong and it results in very 'far off' or 'tinny' sound. If you have a 5.1 setup, even though it should only play through the front speakers, it will come out through the back left instead.

There's no way to get it to sound correct, aside from ripping the disc and copying the left channel's audio to the right, and playing it back in modified form. Or, in your right speaker, switch the two wires the other way around for the episode and then switch them back when you're done.

But you can try switching the speaker modes to something that's stereo only. For me, I think there's one called "Portable" that's like that. Or you can listen through the TV speakers. These things should minimize the problem and make it listenable at least, until your replacement disc arrives.
