    Unacceptable and I hope that others do not purchase the films until they get fixed ratios.
    That's definitely unfair. Films with incorrect ratios shouldn't be advertised on front page, especially if the development teams knows about the issue.

    I'm glad that Vudu is working hard on fixing this issue, however. I hope we hear some good news on an update soon.

    All (and prkprkprk in particular), I feel your pain. I've escalated the issue with the Ben-Hur title (An old favourite of mine and a classic that should have had the most blemishless presentation possible).

    As prkprkprk had mentioned, I had sent out a private message. From it:


    We are working on multiple solutions to this problem simultaneously - some are longer term solutions targeting our procurement workflow and others are short term fixes. I am, directly, researching automated means to flag suspicious movies. In addition, I am trying to work with the team to see if some changes to the UI are possible (like sample screenshots of the encodes along with the preview; this could allow our users to quickly notice issues). Will keep posting updates to this thread.
    Thanks Blackburn for being so candid with your explanation. I think the easiest way to fix this problem is with forum members. No automated system will beat the sharp eyes of a rabid fan of a particular movie. If someone sees something amiss they will want to tell someone about it. That someone is YOU (VuDu). So, instead of trying to set a an automated system that will fail, you guys should set up an easier reporting system to let your fan base do the checking for you. It's a win-win so long as you're responsive to the reports. The last thing you want is to have someone tell you something only to be ignored. You'll want to fix the errors quickly or at least inform the reported that a fix is on the way, and how soon.

    A couple others

    I just converted two DVDs to HDX and found the AR to be wrong. The two are classics. Lawrence of Arabia and Legends of the Falls. Both should be at least 2:35 but they're not. Legend is 16x9, just awful!
