Exclamation Another Dud: Relentless Enemies HD DVD

Breaking the record for the most defective discs in a single month, HD DVD received its third strike with the release of 'National Geographic - Relentless Enemies'. This stunning documentary will not play on any G2 player from Toshiba, nor the Xbox 360 HD DVD add-on. After contacting support at Toshiba, Robert from Value Electronics confirmed that the issue was compatibility with an older disc creation process. It appears that Toshiba neglected to include the 'Basic' disc format with its new machines. Owners of these brand new players, and those Xbox owners looking for a cheap thrill, will have to wait until May to play back their disc they purchased in March.

I can't wait for The Matrix Trilogy to hit, maybe Neo will tell Xbox 360 owners, "Can't read disc? Whoa."

By the way, has anyone had problems with this on BD? I haven't heard anything, so there's yet another advantage of Blu-ray: We can view the content on the discs we buy.

And FWIW it's encoded in VC-1. The video quality is okay but it's not perfect. Too soft in some spots.

This is probably why the home authored discs don't work on G2 players also... HDi or nothing!

Played fine for me in the PS3. Well, it's been a rough month for HD-DVD. I guess they must be looking forward to putting it under their belt.

The narration in the film started to get to me. I felt like saying shut up to the guy. The words were sometimes a little too poetic. The other bad thing was the regular fade to black sequences indicating a commercial break. At times the picture was very clear at other times it was grainy. I enjoyed the storyline. Lot's of blood. It was very interesting.
