    I received my DVD copy of ‘National Lampoons Animal House – Widescreen’ this morning from CDWOW and have experienced severe problems trying to watch the disc this evening.

    The final two chapters of the movie and the whole of both documentaries suffer from digital artefacts, pixelation, screen-freezes and sound drop out.

    A visual inspection of the discs surface shows no visible problems (scratches or blemishes) so I wonder if there has been an authoring problem.

    I doubt if there is a compatibility issue with my player (Toshiba 220) as it quite happily played 95% of the movie without incident.

    Anyone out there received this disc and checked it yet?

    I'd like to confirm it's not a large scale authoring/batch problem before CDWOW send me a faulty replacement.

    Cheers

    Sorry, I didn't specify, I'm talking about the new 'Double secret probation' edition.

    Just to follow up:

    Replacement disc worked fine and the postage-paid returns envelope arrived after the replacement disc.

    Top marks to CD Wow for customer service.

    :clap:
