Warning: "The Island" DVD Doesn't Have DD5.1 in English (In Canada).
i just rented the island on dvd from rogers and noticed it does not have an english dolby digital track only a french dolby digital track. the movie is only 2.0 english, called rogers and they said all their island dvds were like that. can anyone else verify this.
i went to 2 rogers video and 3 blockbuster videos and all of them have the faulty french dolby digital track and 2.0 for english so looks like it might be widespread across canada. called a friend in the states and he said there is a dolby digital english track on it. this sucks, might be a total recall in canada for this dvd.
correct, no dolby digital in english just french, english is only 2.0. and no dts track so everyone in canada can only watch the english in 2.0. unless you speak french, then you can watch the dolby digital track.
I'm not trying to break your balls, but Dolby Digital can be DD2.0 or DD5.1, or even others like DD1.0, DD5.0... Dolby Digital doesn't mean DD5.1 (but I do know what you mean).
They wouldn't have sent ones meant for Quebec to the rest Canada would they? Does the package have French larger then English or any "interesting" features that would lead one to believe it shouldn't have come to Ontario?
Please also put your locations in your profiles, it often helps us help you. I'm assuming you are both in Ontario, but you could be in NB...
says on back of the package english dolby digital 5.1, but its really english 2.0 what gets me is how could the studio not do anything about this. universal distributed this for dreamworks and had plenty of time for a recall even before the dvd went out to retailers.honestly dont think they will do a recall for all of canada it would be to costly.
Hmmm. My case clearly says 5.1 for both english and french, yet like all of you, my disc is only 2.0 for English and 5.1 for French. Please post if you've had success (or failure) being able to return your copy on these grounds. I'm going to try probably tomorrow. Future Shop (like most/all stores) doesn't usually take back open DVDs but in this case the stuff on the disc doesn't match what's on the case... I'm hoping they'll do the right thing and take it back as defective.
