From a cursory examination, the disc plays fine in my XA2. I will say that the new menu functionality really makes this disc much, much more user friendly than the old DVE (I haven't checked to see if the SD side is still the same). Patterns are explained clearly in the menus, and they are grouped in a much more logical fashion (so far -- this is still a preliminary view).
For the conspiracy theorists out there: One odd perspective I had, though, was on the Shuttle launch sequence in the former montage of images (now with breaks between vignettes). There was one shot, with the Atlantis
in flight that looked postively animated. Very odd. I'll have to go back to the original to see how it compares, but a couple of the long shots post-launch looked computer-generated to me. Too funny.
