Sounds neat. I haven’t seen a lot of these since they were first uploaded, would be fun to go back and watch some in HD.
I don’t think you understand the point of preservation. It’s not about your agreeing with the content.
the 5.1 mixes still sound the same as their originals with no noticeable changes made to it.
Like crissrudd4554 said, not true.
Pretty sure I’ve posted this before but this is a good site for write-ups on audio mixes: https://blah-ray.blogspot.com/
Are there any mono tracks that have currently never been released on DVD/Blu-ray?
Yes. A lot actually.
It seems like it’s more rare for the original mono to be included then not.
You could take the uncensored bits from the DVDs and edit it into the tv rips to create what would be as close as possible to having a complete uncut series.
The DVDs aren’t straight episodes, they’re more like best-of compilations.
Would appreciate a link to these if anyone still has them.
I’d love to check this out if someone could PM me a link.
I don’t have any episodes in HD sadly, but I’d be interested in checking them out when you’ve acquired them all.
I’d appreciate a link to this if anyone has one.
I would like a link to this if someone could send me one.
Well in a way, each theater chain gets a different version of the same movie, but the only thing that changes really is with different bumpers and previews
It’s not the film distributors who add those. The theaters just get send the film (either print or DCP) and the theaters themselves slice in previews, bumpers, or whatever else.
Does anyone have a link for this? I’d love to check it out.
If anyone has a link for this, I’d appreciate a PM 😄
Looking forward to this being released!

The Muppets came to Disney+ recently, and, wouldn’t you know it, they’ve been edited to hell and back! Not only is The Muppet Show edited to remove “copyright infringing” material, but there are two episodes missing entirely. Namely, the Brooke Shields one, and the one hosted by Chris Langham (for those of you that don’t live in Britain, he was a comedian who got arrested for looking up child porn on his computer).
I knew they put that dumb disclaimer in front, but I didn’t know they censored it as well. How’s the quality? Maybe someone can do a proper restoration using them as a primary source.
There’s a new 4k BD coming out next month, possibly will have different color grading.
Also I see the complaint of it being “too dark” a lot but I just re-watched it and honestly it looked fine, I never had any problems seeing anything.
Would love to check this out if someone could send me a link.
Is it possible to mix Atmos without some expensive Dolby workstation? I bet you could do something really cool with a good Atmos mix to Fantasia, even if it’s not 100% true to the original Fantasound.
Out of curiosity, is there anything wrong with the blu-rays or Home Alone?
Does anyone have a link to this extended edition? I’d love to check it out!
Anyone have a link to the roadshow cut? I sent a few PMs a few months ago but never heard a response.
So I’m curious about something. When you stream the new master from iTunes/Apple TV on an 1080p SDR monitor, what are you actually watching? I get that the 4K would just be downscaled to 1080p, but what about the HDR? Is there some kind of tone mapping being done, or does Apple already have a 1080p SDR version of the new master that automatically streams if they detect you’re using a non-HDR screen?
I’d assume all streaming services have an HDR and SDR version of films, and just give you what your monitor supports. Tone mapping HDR to SDR is very resource intensive and not very accurate, while storage is cheap.
Have you tried using something like FairUse4WM 1.3?
That requires a temporary key from the auth server to decrypt it. Since the server is no longer up I don’t there’s any way to use that.
I recently discovered that a 2003 DVD release of T2 included a bonus disc with an HD version of the film for playback on PCs. It was in an encrypted WMV container, and using Windows Media Player it would pull down a 7 day decryption key for playback. From what I’ve gathered it was possible to use that temporary key to completely remove the DRM from the files back then, but now the server is no longer available so that method is no longer usable.
I’ve acquired the encrypted WMVs, and I’ve been trying to decrypt them for the past few days. Does anyone have any insight for how to achieve this? Or maybe somebody has an archive of already decrypted files?
Every HD release of T2 has been notably flawed in one way or another, so I’m very interested to see how this version stacks up. It’s also possible that the audio and/or video can help in any current or future fan restorations. Either way I’d say it’s important to preserve and archive this version of the film, especially if future releases continue to disappoint.
