Dolby Digital Plus - any known preservations
#11
The point is that the thread is an inquiry into whether there are any such tracks. So far, nobody seems to know of any specific ones.

Resurrection! In case anyone got it... I read that Mad Max 2 HD-DVD has foreign audio tracks in DD+ 640kbps that are otherwise 192kbps on all other Blu-ray versions or even the recents UHD. So that would be a good bunch of tracks to preserve!

The Archival Versions of Blade Runner sound best on HD-DVD and not Blu-ray.
Both the Blu-ray and HD-DVD versions are 640kbps 5.1 but the HD-DVD is in DD+ and not standard DD.
The HD-DVD also has the original Dolby Stereo 2.0 mixes in DD+ (doubt they would sound as good as the LaserDisc tracks, however) as well as a plethora of different dubs across all versions.

Wow OK, I'm rebuying the HD-DVD, also I think I can find an X-Box HD-DVD player for cheap, which will allow me to rip it.

What movie?
If it's Blade Runner? Are you getting the 5-disc version?
Make sure to get the 5-disc one, since we need the Dolby Digital Plus mixes for the Archival Versions more than The Final Cut, which is already in TrueHD 5.1 on both HD-DVD and Blu-ray.

Yes, I found it online for 20 bucks. If I can get my hands on an xbox HD-DVD player for like 20 bucks, that will be it.

The Workprint of Blade Runner got a DTS-HD MA 5.1 track on this 2012 release, it and the Director's Cut also got a boost to AVC over VC1 I believe.

Too bad the 2012 release still has Dolby Digital for the Archival Versions even if the video is now AVC.
I have a proposal for the ultimate releases for Blade Runner here:
https://fanrestore.com/thread-4743.html

As for the other versions of the film not on home video, the San Diego Exclusive Preview is lost.
And there are two more versions: the CBS US broadcast cut, and the HBO Asia/Cinemax Asia cut.
The HBO Asia cut is basically the CBS cut but without the narration and in HD.

Too bad I no longer have cable, nor can I capture a broadcast of the film. I would have preserved the HBO Asia cut. And the audio would be a better source for the censored audio takes than old VHS recordings.
