The Technidisc pressing from 1993 is not very good however, my advice is to look for a rot-free Mitsubishi pressing.

I have both the CBS/FOX and FOX VIDEO versions. There is absolutely no difference they both have the shrinking aspect ratio.

Chapter 13 on side 3 contains a surround sound channel check, helpfully.

According to the OriginalTrilogy forums, the Technidisc pressing actually has a different video master that fixes the "Incredible Shrinking Ratio" problem and has less DVNR, albeit with the downside of high cross-talk levels that Technidisc was (in)famous for in their pressings...

It's confirmed that the 1993 & 1994 Technidisc pressings do not suffer from the "incredible" shrinking aspect ratio. Note: the one with 1994 mints show that side C (CAV) has the same date as the 1993 Technidisc pressings. Still looking for a 1994 dated side C.
