    Some people who have received RDXI steelbooks early may have noticed a printing error on the rear sleeve, in relation to episode titles.

    Without confirming or denying the veracity of what is on there, this is an ongoing situation and until I get official word on how it will be responded to and dealt with, please consider it a general rule of the forum to not repost, discuss or speculate about what is printed on the case until further notice.

    Will they be recalled from shelves and replaced with corrected reprints?

    WOW. Received my Blu-ray steelbook yesterday but never noticed the mistake on the back - too busy watching the episodes themselves. What a strange error. Are we not allowed to say what the error is then? Seems a bit bizarre.

    What a shambles.

    The marketing for this series has been shambolic.

    What a great series, and the quality of the footage is out of this world, but you can't help but feel that no effort whatsoever went into putting the DVD and Blu-ray together. Every shot is pristine, unlike on X where some shots are full of artifacts, lines and pixelation on Trojan, although it's only really noticeable on a large, high quality screen and then only really if you know it's there. I hope that they actually put some thought into the RDXII extras and menus.

    As per this week's site update we can now confirm that due to a printing error, some incorrect episode titles were printed on the RDXI steelbook's cardboard sleeve. We're not going to put a blanket ban on discussing these printed titles (subject to our usual rules about RDXI/XII information only being allowed in this conference, and not being allowed in post titles) - however, as the news update again notes, we should advise that the titles are not the final episode titles for Red Dwarf XI.

    But yes, otherwise, you may now discuss it on here.
