I think I understand you, but the "original" content is the disk or media that the DVI/cinepack was ripped from. I did not say *all* PD merchants grab their media online, I said *some probably* do. Again, the Feature Films forum would be helpful in this regard. Some people there are or have been regular patrons and can tell you which ones are good and which ones to stay way from.

If I understand you, you're looking for highest-quality copies of PD materials. If that's true, I think you have to find a film collector or a friendly archives and negotiate a deal with him/her for video masters made from their copies. Or (despite what you said above) start to collect film materials and pay to have them transferred.
