    hi

    saw your post and had a look at my uk 2 disc any saw no dts so i logged onto dvd compare and the aliens page

    http://www.dvdcompare.net/comparisons/film.php?fid=11

    they reckon that :

    OVERALL: R1
    Region 1 new 2-disc Collectors Edition (taken from Quadrilogy) allows you to listen to the audio commentary with either version of the film, but on the regions 2/4 (new 2-disc SE), the tracks are available only on: "Special Edition". Japanese R2 ?release includes a DTS audio track, but has only the Theatrical version.
    Image-comparison can be found here: http://207.136.67.23/film/DVDCompare3/aliens.htm

    let me know if anyone can confirm either way.

    thanks

    cebs

    The Japanese release of Aliens has DTS but it doesnt have both versions of the film, just the Special Edition version.

    I guess it was regionfree as well ? Sounds like you bought a bootleg....(esp as it should be a 9 disc set!)
