    Store "Hole" Feedback

    This makes sense, perhaps they were using physical media for these. From what I understand, with the mezzanine files, they can take this and create the SD, HD and UHD versions and encode the LPCM tracks to DTS-HD MA or the included Atmos for the store. They don't seem to be creating any new SD...

    Star Trek: TMP- The Director’s Edition request

    I have the 4k disc and it doesn't come with the blu-ray so there's no way to catalog at least for me, my external BD player won't read the 4k disc
