    Are there going to be any differences between the R1 & R2 versions? I can't wait to see this one.

    Excellent - this is a DVD I don't mind buying so that I can test my RCE compliant Toshiba SD200E!

    Features are apparently the same on all versions, but they've not confirmed DTS on the R2 UK version yet (unless I've missed something). I've heard the R4 disc is quite cheap and has DTS confirmation.

    For what it's worth, I don't think the R2 version is THX certified unlike the R1.
