The aspect ratio of the DVDs for films 1-18 released in the USA was a weird 4:3 Letterboxed.
What is the aspect ratio on the UK release?
I note that 4 films are on 2 DVDs.
Has Picture Quality suffered as a result of compression?
The USA release is a dvd for each film.

The Region 2 Complete Series 1 set is 16:9 letterboxed. This means on my widescreen TV I get black bars at top and bottom and left and right sides. (This is called windowboxing.) The picture is the right shape for widescreen 16:9 but in a window in the middle of the screen. I can't get my TV or DVD player to expand the picture to fill the screen whichever settings I try.
