Yes

Awesome, simple question, quick answer.

See, the dvd's might be somewhat cheaper, but I like that I can watch them both ways. It's going on my wish-list, just bought the Stardate Collection in BR, but this should be my next 'to buy'.

Yes, you can choose between the remastered episodes with the original FX or the remastered episodes with the new FX.

And you can also switch between old and new FX during the episodes using the "angle" button on your remote.

From what I've heard, there are some episodes where this feature doesn't work correctly ... something about the new sound mix and the re-recorded opening theme still being there in the original version.

It works fine on my sets.

Happy to help. One note is that the recently Amazon has been having the complete series on BR for around $100. I've been seeing the series on DVD going for around $80, so it's not too much more expensive. Good luck on your purchase!

I've seen two different types of packaging for them. Any differences in content, special features, ect?

Do you mean for the DVDs? The original release of the DVDs came in a case like these and contain the original episode as they originally aired (albiet cleaned up quite a bit and look pretty good). The newer release come in cases like these and contain the remastered episode and the same special features as the HD-DVD and Bluray releases, except they contain only the remastered versions (without the option to view the original release)

As a matter of fact I had such an instance the other day on Shore Leave. Thought it was a problem with my player, though.

Yes, but if you don't have a Blue Ray player, and only have DVD, both versions are available in separate season sets. This is how I have them. I'm still dissapointed that they won't (for now, anyway) do this for the TNG remastered sets.

The packaging I found is this, http://www.bol.com/nl/p/star-trek-th...2004013046781/ for 75 euro's. I don't care that much about packaging, so if I can get the entire series for only 75 euro's (96 dollars) I'm happy. But since I just got the Stardate Collection in BR, I'll have to wait till next month. ;)

Except that the remastered episodes with original FX are not available on DVD, AFAIK. With bluray, you get the original episodes with the original FX remastered in HD.

They can't do that for TNG. Unlike with TOS, which was mastered on film and only needed to be rescanned in HD, TNG episode masters don't exist on film. They have no choice but to reedit the episodes from scratch and add some new FX. With TOS, there were film masters of the original episodes with all the original FX, but not for TNG.

I don't know in which thread I read about those errors, but it was somewhere on this board. Maybe someone can shed some light on this matter.

So, you're from Berlin? Mario de Monti, eh? You know what, a few years ago I had a job right around the corner where the actor who played this character lived. Saw him lots of times and I really had to hold myself back not to ask him to sign an autograph. But this was his private life, and I think it would have been very inappropiate to bother him.
