View Full Version : They Live - any known tech. problems w/ old disc?
08-08-03, 01:30 AM
this is a long shot, but...
Does anyone who owns the OLD They Live dvd know of any problems w/ it? It played fine on all my dvd players, but someone I sold it to last month claims they can't play the dvd on their Oritron dvd player. I am slightly suspicious, since they waited to make this claim AFTER the new dvd was announced, but i thought I'd check it out anyway.

I never had a problem with my disc and I don't recall hearing about any sort of widespread problems with it, either.

one of the first dvds I ever bought and watched it a few weeks ago for the 10th time I'm sure. NO problems.

MIne worked fine until last week when I sold it on ebay... worked in 3 different players over the last few years.

I never had a problem with mine on several players. Sure sounds like your buyer heard about the new edition and is trying to get his or her money back. Ask if they've had problems playing other discs.

Mine's played perfectly all 8 times.

Exactly, they found out about the new DVD... You know the rest.

No problems with my old version and same for the guy who bought it for $15.00.
The problem may be with the Oritron (Wal*Mart's house brand). Not a good brand for VHS / DVD players although I never noted any problems with their TVs when I worked there.
No problems with my copy.

The old version is anamorphic isn't it?

Yes, the old version is anamorphic.

I have the old version and from what I read there is nothing different on the upcoming Universal release....right?
