I agree that the "red box" idea is bad. People will tamper with them on purpose b/c they'll know that valuable DVDs are inside.
Off topic, is anyone else having queue trouble with ratings not showing up and not being able to update the queue, etc?
Friends feature is almost working. Now they just have to make sure that recent ratings are listed.
Have fun! Off topic, the Friends thing is acting up again...

Totally off topic here, but is anyone having Friends feature problems? Like "End of List" is listed for all friends with no titles shown?
Still waiting for an update on Bollywood movies...it's been months since there's been a major Bwood update.

Also looking for "Woh Lamhe"
Absolutely. I regularly send Netflix emails for the latest titles. They should go to www.indiaweekly.com to see what the latest releases are and buy accordingly. I'm still waiting to rent "Nishabd," "Baabul," "Black Friday," "Just Married (the Indian version)," and "Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd" among others. I also have a bunch of Bwood titles at the top of my queue with Very Long Wait.
I agree with McDaniel's comments. I rent a lot of Indian discs as well and some have loading issues, b/c of authoring not because of region or other issues. The quality has gotten better though over time, but alas there's always room for improvement.
Unknown is released by The Weinstein Company so Netflix only has limited copies....that could be the cause of the Very Long Wait. For now though, it's all about "Escape From Sobibor"! Let's see how many rentals they get from this talkback! Thanks Meg!
