    Re: of rings no dolby 5.1

    You are correct - Fellowship and Return of the King are only in 2.0 stereo - and Vudu does not hide this per se. (Two Towers is 5.1, and I believe all 3 extended cuts are 5.1). And I should mention this affects not just D2D titles, but also standalone Vudu purchases as well as UV redemptions.

    MANY films on Vudu are only in 2.0 (even in HDX format) - I have listed many below. Not many of these are not dramas or comedies that won't suffer much from 2.0, most are Blockbuster Tentpole films! 2 Harry Potter films, Mission Impossible 3, Troy, V for Vendetta, Rings, Batman Begins, etc.

    I have emailed support, and was dealing with James. he told me the content team has been alerted to the issue. The content team will have to get new video masters from the movie studios to replace the current versions they have. Pretty shameful to have HDX titles of the below caliber in 2.0, talk about archaic?!?!?!? Anyhow I hope they fix,how fast is up to them...... (and partially the studios, although the studios are delivering titles every week, they should accommodate quickly)

    HDX titles that are only in 2.0 (when you view the title in VUDU, click the MORE INFO tab to verify):

    Lord of the Rings Fellowship of the Ring
    Lord of the Rings Return of the King
    The Matrix
    Austin Powers International Man of Mystery
    Austin Powers THe spy Who Shagged Me
    Austin Powers Goldmember
    Batman Begins
    The Godfather
    The Godfather Part 2
    Singin in the Rain

    X-Files Fight the Future
    Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone
    Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (info is missing)
