Indy - let us know what you think of the set please?My set is due for delivery Monday, pleasantly surprised by this company than I had never heard of this time last week lol
Question now is what do I do with my old DVDs? I know most are worth next to nothing but I have the Collectors Editions of Series 5 and 8 might be worth something and I have the Bodysnatcher Collection which I mainly only have for the documentaries so tempted to sell that too.
When the set was first released I saw some comparison shots of the DVDs to the Blu-rays and Series 6 looked like a decent upgrade but then the news of the authoring error 'among other issues which won't be fixed' appeared which put me off getting it but for £20 I figured it was worth a look, copy should be waiting for me at home assuming one of the neighbours doesn't have it away lolIndy - let us know what you think of the set please?
Like most, I have all the DVD's of Series 1-8 and to say they look average on a 65" screen is being kind.
The fact that the CHILI set will still include the wrongly-authored discs put me off, even at £20, as I just can't be bothered to see what the BBC do with the whole replacement discs debacle. I'd rather just buy the set fully fixed from the outset.
I know they're upscales and not proper HD, but it would be worth knowing whether to invest in this and ditch the DVD's at some point in the future.
So sounds like they are still working on them.Dear Andrew
Thank you for your email.
We will look in to an update timeframe for when the corrected discs will be available for replacements.

It was never going to be a quick fix, if it had been just an encoding error it would have still taking weeks to sort it and manufacture the discs but they had to go back to the master tapes, re-transfer them, do all the post work again and then get it signed off by the relevant parties.Talk about dragging it out
