No, it's not cropped. The aspect ratio is respected and you don't lose any parts of the image.
However it's 4:3 letterbox only and not enhanced for 16:9 TVs, which explains the black stripes all around the image. The only way to get them off is to zoom.

OK, cropped was the wrong word to use.

Still, why present it in non-anamorphic widescreen when all of the material is in 16:9? What is the point of making the DVD in 4:3 format when none of the material is in 4:3? Surely ROH could've made this a full widescreen release, it's not that difficult.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I'm asking my for money back on it. I just ordered it along with BFSE2, so it shouldn't be a problem as the order wouldn't ship for another 2 weeks. Wish me luck.

At the least you'd think they could exchange it, maybe for a PWG DVD. You know, a promotion that knows how to film its fucking shows.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I would of ordered it in a 40-50% off sale cos I'm a completist but I am pissed off at basically paying $20 for a $15 DVD that I'm never going to watch because they don't know how DVD production works.

What a surprise ROH have deleted the thread about the HDNet set. Fuck them.

That's a joke, right? I'd be pissed too if I bought it, but just deal with it, zoom in if possible, and perhaps email Cary like I notice you gave above.

I don't keep wannabe-widescreen DVDs in 2010. I keep the real shit. From now on, I just get the good REAL widescreen shit FOR FREE, perfectly formatted for my monitor, thanks to Seabs until Cary stops being a lazy fuck about it.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Well, I don't think Cary personally produces them, does he?

Try rohhelp@aol.com, which is what I did. Didn't get a refund, but I am exchanging it for an older ROH show. Thought about going with a PWG show just to stick it to them some more, but I'm not really interested in anything pre-BOLA '08.
