Hi, all. Just curious, I have this film in my collection in HD quality from like 2 years ago. Is there any point to deleting that version and re-downloading the new version? Do you know if the HD version received any upgrades/updates when they did the 4K HDR version? Like is it a better video master on the HD version as well, and is the audio on this new HD version "English (Restored and Re-mixed) (DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1)" superior to what was on the original version?
Thanks!
John

Good questions! I was assuming the HD version remains the same and we just leave it alone. I have the same version as you and been meaning to download the HDR version so I'm curious about this as well.

You can try downloading the HD version again. If the download starts, it means that there are changes but it’s really difficult to pin them down(unless there are are really obvious i.e. audio upgrade). You can then delete the old version from your library while the newer one downloads.
If you get the message “content already downloaded” then there is no change.

Every 3-4 months I launch a download of all my 4K movie library(close to 430 movies). I always see 3-4 movies dowloading again but except for audio I never look for specific changes, I don’t really care.

So, if you download all of your 4K movies, it will just download the ones that have changed (e.g. new ATMOS soundtrack)? That's one way to get the audio updates if that works! SJ

Yes it does and it has helped me identifiy audio upgrades in the past. This is though the only potential change I am able to spot, I nevertheless keep on doing it every few months. I did it this weekend and two movies downloaded again. The Incredibles 2 and The Lion King. I had downloaded both on release date so some updates may have happened in the meantime but I can’t tell you exactly what. Try it, Iguess it’s always good to have the latest “version”.

Does it delete the old version? Thought everyone (including K members) have stated you need to delete the old version and then re-download for movies that get upgraded with new audio? And that they are working on a solution..... SJ

Not sure if this happens. My MO is that when I see a movie downloading despite having it already in my server, I delete the one in my servers while the newer version is downloading. Can't tell you anything more. It can be that other updates are available compared to the older version i.e extras, scenes and not only audio.
If I find from someone else that a newer version is available i.e. Braveheart last week, I delete the old one and then I start downloading the updated version. Not sure what will happen if I don't delete the old version. I will most probably have the same movie twice and then I will need to play both in order to see which one has the upgraded audio.

Delete and re-download, that's the process for now.

As an update and if you are interested to try, the following movies(HDR) from my library have downloaded again:

Cliffhanger - Overlord - Widows - Mary Poppins Returns - Alpha - Solo A Star Wars Story - All the Avengers movies - The Incredibles - Ant Man and the Wasp.

I also noticed that my library(filtered or not, in this case filtered by UHD) can now be dowloaded in one click. It is no longer needed to browse it page by page.

No idea Ahmad. It could be various additions, encoding improvements or even a new soundtrack. I just do it.
