My final comment on this. After HMV sent everyone who sent their originals back for a replacement another copy of the recalled version I just sent it back again for a refund. I'll buy it from somewhere else when I'm able to get it at the price I originally paid.
For reference HMV do not let you swap faulty stock in shops if you bought online as I also tried that with no luck.
Sent mine back nearly 2 weeks ago, if they ship out another copy of the faulty version I think I'll go postal. Horrific customer service.
