    Bought Virus R2 the other day from Asda. When I played it for the first time I thought my amp was playing up as it was in PLII mode. I checked the back and it has the DOLDY Digital logo but on closer inspection its only encoded in Sterio. Surley this is very missleading.

    I havn't bothered to watch it as this is the second DVD from Asda that I feel I have been missled by, The other was Fail Safe which also has the Dolby Digital logo on the back.

    Where do I stand re taking back to the shop.

    Any advice. Is all Virus DVDs in plain sterio?

    Dolby Digital can be any number of channels from 1 to 5.1. As Dolby Digital (formely AC-3) just describes the encoding format, not the number of channels.

    Coma R1, is mono dolby digital.

    Virus is also available in anamorphic 2.35:1 and DTS (1509kbps) in R1. No extras though, unlike the Dolby Digital version.
