    I ordered 'The Pianist' 2-disc title in Splash's recent sale.

    Well I recieved it through the post today and am extremely perplexed. I opened it up to find only one disc, I didn't know the Pianist even came in single disc form. :mad:

    I'm wondering may I have been sent a high-grade pirate copy? The DVD was shrink wrapped?

    I'm going to get back to Splash about this as I had specifically ordered the 2-disc set but if anyone could give me some ammunition I'd be most grateful.

    Also: I tried putting the EAN number into DVD profiler and it wasn't recognised. The EAN no. is as follows: 050 582 197 044.

    Has anyone else who ordered the Pianist from them recieved this version?

    I know they have 2 versions on their site but the point is the one I ordered is definitely the 2-disc version as that is what the catalogue number from my e-mail matches to!

    Looks like I'll have to get it sorted out from Splash. Grrrr :thumbsdow

    Yep that's the one I've got - no inside chapter listing, no extras, nothing. Pretty poor even for £5 :(

    Could be that they have just sent you the wrong one if your email matches the 2 disc one. send them an email telling them your email matches the 2 disc one or better still give them a ring. Ive never had communication with them before but have heard mixed views so good luck :cool:

    I'll try giving them a ring and see what they say (if I can get through)!

    Don't know whether I can be bothered to go through all the hasssle though tbh. I should at least be glad I got something from splash in the first place :laugh:

    Hadnt openned mine,but just had a look and its the 1 disc version as well,even though I ordered the 2 disc edition.Seems like this is the only 1 they are sending out tbh:nono:

    The case does seem a bit on the cheap side too,cant see them selling pirate copies though;although if they had to download and copy every film this would explain why they take so long to deliver:rotfl:

    You're right it seems as if they're sending out the 1-disc edition even though most people ordered the 2-discers.

    I've tried other forums and this is the same issue with them!

    I'm going to call them tomorrow and see what they say.

    I'll keep you posted.
