    I'll try my TMP disk tomorrow and see if Voyage Home comes up. Good info, especially if it works!

      Re: VUDU AT HOME: DISC-TO-DIGITAL Bugs?

      I know its not ideal, but I was able to work around the issue with the Lord of the Rings Extended Edition blu-rays not being recognized as such. I used the first DVD of the Appendix for each movie and each showed the correct movie and in the extended version. Granted, I had to pay $2.50 for each in-home conversion instead of $1.00, but for these movies it was worth it to me.

          VUDU AT HOME: DISC-TO-DIGITAL Bugs? / 2 Sided DVD (Widescreen/Fullscreen)

          I have successfully converted over 100 of my DVD & Blu-Rays, including some of the ones others seem to have problems with, i.e. LOTR Extended Edition Blu-ray (all 3), Die Hard (first 3 are DVD, 4th is Blu-ray), and Star Trek movies #2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, & 10 (all are DVD, not Blu-ray)

          I have problems with ALL of my older, 2 sided, DVDs (not blu) that have Widescreen on one side and Full screen on the other. These include:

          Jason and the Argonauts
          Fifth Element
          Ghostbusters 2
          Batman (Michael Keaton version)

          Other problems are:

          The Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift (blu-ray) comes up as the original The Fast and the Furious
          Jumper (Blu-ray) comes up as Die Hard 4 (really)
          Midway (DVD - unrecognized)
          Soylent Green (DVD) comes up as the Omega Man
          XXX (DVD - Unrecognized)
          Star Trek VI (DVD - unrecognized)


          Edit: My Bad...I just realized that LOTR Extended Bluray was an in-store conversion, not VTG (It's the last one I did before VTG became available)

            I have both the original series and next gen Blu-Ray sets and I was only able to convert Voyage Home, Undiscovered Country, and First Contact. EVERY other disc was recognized as Voyage Home.

              Same issues with Lord of the Rings, can't get Fellowship to work. Also Bourne movies. Men in Black (original) comes up as Men in Black 3 for some reason.

                Re: VUDU AT HOME: DISC-TO-DIGITAL Bugs?

                Nothing seems to work for me. I'm running vudu @ home on windows 8. I've tried several DVD's and nothing worked. I got frustrated and quit.

                All DVD's
                Gladiator(signature selection)
                Bourne Identity(collectors editon)
                Bourne Supremacy
                Bourne Ultimatum
                Braveheart
                Matrix
                Matrix Reloaded
                Matrix Revolutions
                Mission Impossible
                Mission Impossible 2 and 3.

                All were reported as unrecognized discs.

                  Well, we also own the DVD EE box set, from back before we had a Blu-ray player, but I don't want to pay an extra $1.50 or $3 per movie just due to a database error, so I'm holding out for the Blu-ray set to be recognized.

                    The DVDs which come in the Blu-ray EE set are also properly recognized as the Extended Editions but the Blu-rays are not. I'm also not willing to spend extra just because of some error in the system.

                      I have the LOTR Trilogy on Blu Ray, *not* the Extended version, just the regular. But it came with "digital copy" disks for each film, as well as a "special features" DVD for each film too. And as mentioned previously, the 2nd and 3rd film are properly recognized, but the 1st shows up as "Return of the King" (ie: the 3rd.)

                      Inspired by your post, I tried the "special feature" DVD for the 1st one instead, and was hopeful for a moment, and then I was presented with this screen:



                      So now I have a choice between the 2nd and 3rd (extended!) one, still not the 1st (and of course, paying more than the $1 it would be if it just would recognize the Blu Ray, as the 1st!)

                      Arrgh.

                        ^ Interesting, I tried the non-extended Blu-ray set and the EE option didn't come up for any of them. Guess I'll have to try again, assuming it will let me.

                          I think distributors of the movies that come in various versions/recuts would be interested in letting owners of any of the versions paying some modest fee to get access to any of the other versions. I generally buy Unrated/Directors Cuts if at all possible/available, but I'm sure if I had guests over to watch something and any brought their kids I'd likely prefer the option of getting the theatrical cut, for instance. Sometimes it's just that I bought the disc right when it was first released then later a new cut of some sort came out -- I might be interested, but usually not for full price.

                          And it would solve what I see, from my own experience using disc-to-digital, is a huge number of issues of the wrong cut coming up for an awful lot of movies.

                            I think the issues we're seeing with the database are from the Gracenote database. All of the titles I've had issues with in the VuduToGo app seem to be identified properly with the Fixster or CinemaNow apps and they use Rovi but they don't support Blu-ray D2D.

                              So, I am a big fan of the community/ forum working together to help them fix the title problems in the database. I had failures too...Far & Away ,Walk the Line, Planet of the Apes (2001), The Game, The Mummy (1999)....but has there been any indication that they actually do anything with these posts about titles not identifying (they do seem good about helping once you actually get it loaded to your account)? It seems like some people have reported stuff to both Gracenote (through the software) and to Vudu in this forum, and I am still having errors on them many, many months later. Just wondering if there is any point to our sharing other than to validate each other's frustrations.....

                                I have done about 60 movies, most were blu rays. Here are the ones I am having issues with:

                                1. The first Lord of the Rings - blu ray (as others have mentioned)
                                2. Ghostbusters - blu ray (some error about contacting customer service or try again later)
                                3. Puss in Boots - blu ray (some error about contacting customer service or try again later)
                                4. An Affiar to Remember - blu ray (asks to input the discs name and says they will contact me)
                                5. Silverado - DVD (asks to input the discs name and says they will contact me)
                                6. Can't Hardly Wait - DVD (some error about contacting customer service or try again later)
                                7. A Cool Dry Place - DVD (some error about contacting customer service or try again later)
                                8. Fight Club - DVD (some error about contacting customer service or try again later)

                                I did also have a problem with one of the Die Hard movies (DVD) but I put in the special features disc and it found it that way.

                                I guess the only way to get these converted is to take them to WalMart? That's too bad as I don't think the 50% off applies to converted copies there...does it?
