there's an outer cardboard? wow the copy i got from amazon only was the actual disc container.
That's the worst thing about Amazon, sometimes they don't bother sending you the cardboard sleeve along your dvd/bluray purchase. You have to buy it at a store if you want to make sure to get the sleeve.

Yes, you definitely should email them. You spent your money to buy the thing, and you deserve to get everything including the sleeve.

You bin 'em! Really? Totally respect your opinions, but I feel the card slips add a lovely touch of class to the packaging. Not as attractive as some of the steelbooks I have on my shelf, but appreciated nevertheless.

There's no reason to keep it. The information and picture on it is usually the same as the box itself and, really, it's just a hindrance to get to the actual discs. A pointless hindrance.

They really bug me. Partly because the are a total waste of resources and partly because they slow down getting into the disks.

Totally with you on this one. Personally, I could never throw away the package! It's part of the whole thing and adds to the feeling that it is something special. And honestly, how long does it really take you to take the box out of the sleeves?

Maybe it has something to do with me being a graphic designer. I could never throw away a beautifully designed piece of paper. Something another designer probably spent a lot of time working on it.

I keep the sleeve too. I think of it as part of the total package.

Re: Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray Audio Issues

I guess "throwing it out" is over stating things. It gets boxed with a bunch of other keepsake stuff that I have no active need for. The sleeve really is useless when it comes to the DVD box and more gets in the way than it add anything to the box. It's not like a box-sleeve that many other DVD sets comes with where the boxes contains the folder/book of discs like the other series have.

This, however, like all BDs these days is just a box that covers a standard Blu-Ray version of an Alpha Case.

It serves no function other than to get in the way. Much like the dust-jacket of books which I'm also not much a fan of.

"The Downmix to Stereo section of this panel allows the user to specify the appropriate parameters for the downmix as shown in Figure 7-18 ... The values specified for the L, R, C, LFE, Ls and Rs denote their respective contributions to the output mix for the Left and Right stereo channels."
The quality of the audio sent over analog RCA jacks depends, of course, on the quality of the digital-to-analog converter in the player. I agree that it certainly can sound just as good over analog cables... but then again, I never said it couldn't.
They can be, but most of the time they aren't, or the person doing the encode, especially on a disc where there is already a seperate 2.0 track, just throws a bunch of numbers into the section. And the TNG discs have not had their 7.1 mixes encoded for 2.0 mixdown; the encoders have left that up to the machine to do, just as Blu-ray and DVD players have been doing since 1997 with DD or DTS 6/5.1 mixes. So with the TNG sets you are losing information, just like you were if you listened to the 2002 5.1 mixes via the RCA connectors.

Finally received the 'correct' disc set from Amazon today. New Delta's were on the packaging, and all the discs have Delta's on them too. Bring on Season 2.

Re: Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray Audio Issues

I'm really frustrated with deluxe. Still have not received my discs despite requesting them on Aug 2nd. I called and they just said it could take up to a month so not to worry until then. But seems like everyone else has already received them.

I wouldn't worry about them too much. They're slow. I only received mine on Monday.

Where did you buy your set? Will they not exchange them?
