I had bought the older Canadian ADV DVD box sets off ebay since they were the only game in town before the A&E set came out. Paid a lot for all 4 seasons, like $350
A number of episodes had artifacting, jaggies, and a few had sort of a gauzy, screen door effect in various scenes. Since these sets were NTSC, I wonder if these were the result of PAL conversions or inherent in the source material.
I hope these are mostly
cleaned up in the BD's. The audio in the Canadian sets are DD 2.0. They matrixed very well with PLIIx, but having true 5.1 would be a nice upgrade.
I'll probably get the BD's but it's painful considering how much I paid for the older DVD's. I'm holding off for awhile because I'd prefer to see some screenshots before spending another $100
