I wasn't expecting Lossless Mono. We almost never get that, they usually just re-use the DVDs Dolby Digital Mono. Good work Universal.

Ha ha. WTF! Who cares though. It's weird though when there are multiple audio tracks, so it's odd it's not in the audio menu.

Looks awesome.

BTW the mono isn't listed as a special feature.
According to the menu caps posted by Beaver the mono is listed next to the 5.1 and foreign dubs.
Apparently that's the default track too. So you have to select the 5.1 mix.

I saw the packaging in HMV today (looks shit to be honest - but it's the disc I care about) and it's odd that the mono track isn't even mentioned - anywhere - on the packaging.
Had me worried for a second until I rechecked the reviews.

They had both. Neither blew my skirt up to be honest. Not really worth the extra fiver for a tin and a booklet - is it? As soon as the gaudy red sleeve dips under the tenner mark I'm on it.

You mean the specs bit at the bottom right of the sleeve?

That's not saying that mono is a special feature.

It's saying that the special features are in mono.

Hell no. I'd pay £2-3 more though. People pay silly money for steel backs.

The R1 Universal Legacy isn't mono :? Even though it says it is, its a downmix?

I think it was a downmix.

The 14 disc Hitch box had a genuine mono track (although it wasn't remastered)

Universal need to get this sorted out.

What's the point including dowmixed mono? That's knowingly lying to your target market. At least I know a 5.1 remix, is a remix.
