    I GOT THIS FROM ANOTHER WEBSITE

    A lot of people have asked us about the mis-framing problem with the Back to the Future 2 & 3 DVDs. What appears to have happened is that the widescreen matting has been done in error, so that the image that appears on the disc is not correctly framed as it should be. There's a thread over at the HTF (http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htforum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=112569) with screen shots illustrating this, so check it out if you're interested (note that the pictures show the R2 version, but the R1 transfer is the same). Here's the e-mail Universal is sending people about this issue:

    "Thank you for your email. Universal Studios will exchange Back to the Future parts 2 and 3 for copies with the updated framing in late February 2003. You may send the DVDs back now or wait until February. Please send Back to the Future disks 2 and 3, without the case, and a letter with the following information: Name, Full Mailing Address, Daytime Phone Number, Reason for Return and Return Address. Send to:

    Back to the Future DVD Returns
    PO Box 224468
    Dallas, Texas 75260

    Thank you,
    Universal Studios Customer Service"

    the current word is not to send back your discs as Fox AREN'T OFFICIALLY aware of the problem yet, the initial report quoted an over eager Fox official who jumped the gun.
    Those people who have sent back their discs are being contacting by fox's distribution to find out why they are sending their discs in? Hold fire on this until an official announcement is made.

    If I worked for Fox I'd wonder why people were sending them too;)

    Just so you know - Fox don't own the rights to BTTF - Universal do. Sending your BTTF discs to Fox will get you nowhere either way as they didn't release the things in the first place!

    Though all of the above is true - just replace the word Fox with Universal and you'll be alright.
