    I can't believe there are many who don't already have a version of 'SPR', but if anyones interested, the new 2 DVD D-Day 60th Anniversary Set inc DTS is only £9.99 in store at MVC in Huntingdon. I guess that'll be the same for all MVC stores.

    I was thinking of the R1 DTS America - (Dreamworks - The World War II Collection (box set)) of the film.
    This one that we are talking about must be the Region 2 DTS.

    That one is different again, we are talking about the 60th anneverasy edition. The R1 version has no DTS but R2 does.

    I also bought SPR 60th Anniversary from Virgin from 5.99
    and have the same problem with disc 2 where the menu does not show up. Does anyone else who did not buy this from Virgin have the same problem?

    It's only £5.99 from Virgin and has been for a while.

    Bought mine a few weeks ago.

    Yes I had a similar 'menu problem' with disc 2 on my Pionner 575 but it played fine on my Pan E100

    I just bought this from Virgin (bargain :thumbsup: ), but have realised that no-where does it say what aspect this is. Before I open the shrink-wrap, can anyone please confirm if is widescreen (I do not want full-screen!).
    Thanks.

    Has anyone else seen how low the bitrate is on the 60th anniversary edition, on my DVD player it averages at about 1-2mb a second. I thought the picture was grainy because that was how it was shot but with such a small amount of information maybe it should have been spread across 2 discs. I watched my superbit tears of the sun last night and it was average of 6-7mb per second, i realise saving private ryan isn't superbit but there's nothing on disc one but the film, 1-2mb per second seems very low to me or am i wrong?
