This is not a problem limited to Warner, it is a problem shared by all HD DVD's as well as the oldest versions of DVD's.
I posted photos of the degenerated discs on this thread many months ago showing the plaques and dispersed 'freckles' that are clearly visible under a tungsten light source. These discs have continued to worsen since then.
I probably have the best A/V set-up on the planet (maybe) with a 9' wide Stewart screen and this magnification amplifies any errors.
I prefer HD DVD's since in my humble opinion, in general, they provide better resolution than BRD's. For example Caddyshack, Deliverance, Lucky Number Slevin, The Perfect Storm, The Phantom of the Opera etc.
Once again, if any of you guys have a viable copy of an HD DVD I urge you to make an ISO of it while you can (Slysoft is the way to go, it's a bit expensive but worth every penny).
Anybody that has a viable "Back-up" of the above please contact me, and I will make the appropriate accommodation.
