And here is the first information we have seen from an individual who has watched the DVD — Andrew J. posted on the Television Without Pity's House Forum:
"Since I edit the DVD review section at the magazine where I work, Universal sends me everything they put out anywhere from a few days to a few weeks before it arrives in stores. The House DVDs arrived yesterday, and when I sat down to dig into them tonight, I got a rude surprise: Although the episodes are presented in the widescreen aspect ratio, they aren't anamorphically enhanced! This won't mean much to folks with 4:3 TVs, but if you have a widescreen set, it's a real drag--you have to use a stretch mode (thereby reducing picture resolution) to see the episodes without black bars on the top and bottom of the screen. It's enough of a comedown to see the show at a "regular" resolution after getting used to seeing it in HDTV on Fox...losing more resolution because of this mistake (I'm assuming it's a mistake, since Universal has released many anamorphic TV DVDs, including the disc of the U.S. OFFICE that comes out on the 16th) is even more of a drag."

"The extras are pretty slight--five or six featurettes that top out at about five or six minutes each. The best is a tour of the sets conducted by Jennifer Morrison and Lisa Edelstein--it's one of the only ones that doesn't seem like pure electronic-press-kit promo-fluff. Morrison and Edelstein are both funny as hell, and it's really interesting to see how much of the sets are fake (doors and stairways that lead nowhere, etc). Most of the featurettes include interviews with Laurie which, since they were apparently filmed during on-set coffee breaks, feature the extremely disorienting sight of him speaking in his civilian-life British accent while fully in costume as House."

"Disc One/Side One is Pilot/Paternity/Occam's/Maternity, so it's broadcast order.
"And yep, Hugh's screen test is in there. It's shot in pretty tight close-up, so you can't tell if he's in a bathroom or a hotel room or what. It's a muddy camcorder tape, in which he runs through the House/Cuddy scene from the pilot in which she busts House's balls about how many clinic hours he owes her on account of blowing off his responsibilities for so long. A man offscreen with an American accent reads Cuddy's lines in a flat monotone...but even at this early stage, Laurie *is* House. It's definitely something to behold."
August 27, 2005 - TVShowsOnDVD has verified that the House DVD's are not in Anamorphic Widescreen offers information on what that means. They "asked Universal why they decided to release the show in widescreen as opposed to anamorphic widescreen and they issued the following statement:"
"Due to a tight production schedule, Universal Studios Home Entertainment has elected to present the Season One DVD release of the Emmy nominated series "House," available August 30th, in Widescreen 1.78:1. This timing will provide viewers the opportunity to watch the first season's episodes they might have missed in advance of the show's Season Two network premiere in September."
