** The Diamond Edition also makes some intentional but ill-advised changes, such as using at least the fourth different set of end credits the movie has seen, and changing the opening credits with drastically different timing, a new font, and the card reading, "In Association With Silver Screen Partners IV" absent. Like the Platinum Edition DVD before it, it also censors the minister's knee.

** The framerate and audio was fixed when Funimation released the series under their belt, but their Blu-Ray release has very noticeable audio glitches. "The Great Plan" in particular has the first part obviously time-compressed with a noticeably higher pitched audio from Speed Racer enterprises, and part 2 has a noticeable drop in the audio during the recap. Episode 5 (The Secret Engine Part 1) also suffers a noticeable audio blip in the first minute and a half of the episode. This also applies to the episodes you can watch on Funimation's site, though the first episode is the only affected on the site.

* Shout! Factory released several ''Creator/{{JackieChan}}'' films as double packs on DVD and Blu-Ray. One Blu-Ray bundle in particular, for Crime Story (1993) and The Protector (1985), features not only the panned US version of the latter film, but the superior Hong Kong version as well. The problem though is that the Hong Kong version did NOT get the treatment it deserved (especially since the US version is considered an OldShame of Jackie's, making him re-shoot and re-cut the film in the first place) as it had little to no attempts at digital restoration whatsoever. No attempts at cleaned up quality. No improved audio. Nothing! It also doesn't help that it's treated as an extra feature rather than another film.

As well as no improved audio as it still sounded like it was running on an old video medium. It also doesn't help that it's treated as an extra feature rather than another film.

* The English dub of ''{{Anime/Speed Racer}}'' suffers this since Speed Racer Enterprises took over the rights in America. Basically, the footage in some of the episodes are rendered in PAL format and the audio itself can sound slightly pitched shifted. The only episodes that don't have this issue are the ones included in the 1993 "Speed Racer: The Movie". [[note]]The Car Hater, and the two parts of the Mammoth Car[[/note]]

The aspect ratio was changed to 16:9 from the original 4:3 to widescreen, 4:3, usually by opening up the sides of the frame and new cropping the top and bottom, sometimes creating a host of problems like making film equipment and even sometimes crew members visible.

* Generally, any show featuring music most likely taken from an old 78 RPM record (such as anything from the History Channel about the 1920s) might have gone overboard with the noise reduction on the music. If an 80-year-old performance sounds like it was recorded in the past 30 years, chances are half the band has been erased from the recording.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine:
** Seasons 1-3 of the classic series suffered from this when HiT Entertainment restored them. While some of the scenes are cleaned up and were zoomed out to make it clearer, others weren't done well. Best example was in "The Flying Kipper", where a majority of the shots are zoomed in. Season 3 zigzags this, as some shots are better, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMKbqTwoYPs but often have something chopped off]]. Other issue is that the restored version might use different takes, or don't use them at all. Sometimes scenes are simply "color-corrected" versions of the late 90's analogue transfers.

* ''Series/BabylonFive'' was filmed at an AspectRatio of [[{{Letterbox}} 16:9]], at a time when most shows were filmed in 4:3, with an eye towards future home video release on the newer wide-screen HDTVs that were beginning to become popular. However, the CGI could be expensive and time-consuming to produce, so it was decided to render it in 4:3 and crop the live action footage to match for broadcast (especially given that much of the scenes in the show were ChromaKey composited shots with CGI backgrounds). [[WhatCouldHaveBeen The intent was to re-render all of the CGI for the eventual widescreen release]], but for various reasons, by the time the DVD sets were [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes eventually]] released, it was instead decided to ''crop'' the CGI scenes from 4:3 to 16:9, effectively a reverse-PanAndScan, reducing their resolution and making the CGI look pixelated, particularly in the ChromaKey shots where the actors were shown in native 16:9.
