I am curious which upscaling method they used, but whichever it is the results are pretty nice. I looked at a few of the season 1 captures from the forum and found the same or very close frames from my DVDs, and it’s noticeably smoother and less noisy. As these things go there may be places where in making these things happen it loses some detail, but it doesn’t jump out at me in these three images. https://imgur.com/a/ycKhe1z

Imo the European broadcast found on the forums still looks best due to the preserved noise/details. That dude posted a lot of samples. Though in some way the BluRay does look better. I guess it’s about preferences if you’re purist or not. But I’m glad the show is finally released on something better than DVD. Ideally they’d also update the VFX or remaster the whole thing. Maybe later if this sells well enough. It’s a start.

So is this the same awful time compressed upscaling that everyone else has? Where the episodes are 41 minutes instead of 43 and everyone’s voices are higher pitched? If not, please take my money. Anyone know?

is that really the cover on the box?
kind of strange choice with season 6 group image.

It’s too bad a show like Stargate can’t get a proper HD release (even if yes it’s better than nothing.), especially when it helps promote the possible future series.

And since the first seasons were shot on film, they could be done in 4K right?

I must ask: How embarrassing is this? The back cover even has “Aspest ratio” printed on it… Just horrible…

In a thread on the Blu-Ray.com-Forums a member reported that every season except the first one has broken 5.1 audio. He wrote: So, I actually imported the audio files for the 5.1 tracks into my computer and took a look at the separate wave forms and compared them to the 5.1 tracks from the dvds AND the dolby surround 2.0 tracks. It looks like what they did was they have the left channel sound playing out of the Front Left, Center, and Front Right channels. And the right channel sound playing out of Surround Left and Surround Right. It is… Read more »

I looked at the audio in Audacity and thinks all in mono. I separated the first two tracks (left and right), inverted the left, and added it the right, and got a completely flat line. It’s the same track, and that’s what was on five of the channels, while the low-frequency channel was just blank. I think someone screwed up.

Will you STOP saying that film is “standard def.” Film is NOT SD. Film has more resolution that a blu-ray does.

I just looked at this on Ebay (Because its not available on AMAZON UK because I live in Ireland) and it would cost more than €200 to import it. So I hope they release it in europe or amazon UK at a more reasonable price
