Misleading workout according to my DVD cover

"Actually the Kickboxing & Hip Hop workouts on this DVD are great, its just the DVD I have, the cover is misleading. On the back cover it states that this DVD has a "blender" feature in which you can mix and match 3 of the 8 10 minute workouts all on one DVD. However, the copy I just bought, there is no such thing. Instead, kickboxing was on one dvd and hip hop was on a separte DVD, and with this there was no such thing as a "blender" to mix and match these workouts, because they were on two totally separte discs. Has anyone else run into this problem when purchasing this workout DVD? Maybe I just happened to get a "bad" one in the bunch. In the description above from Amazon in states the number of discs to only be 1, but like I said mine had 2. This is kind of disappointing to me, because I was really looking forward to the "blender" feature."
Very effective varied routines

"First and foremost, I must say the previous reviewer is correct in that this consists of two (2) dvds and does not feature the blender that most Quick Fix Total Mix users are accustomed to seeing.
That said, I love this set of dvd's with the space saving of having two discs in one box. I love the workouts particularly the kickboxing segments with Janis. She is an awesome instructor, not too chatty or cutesy. Her cueing is well done and I love the ability to first concentrate on the movement, learning at half-time and then performing the action at regular speed. It certainly aids in learning form quickly and correctly. I have done Tae-Bo in the past but his cueing and counting left much to be desired. The upper, lower and core segments afford you the opportunity to pick your poison for the day or do all three workouts with or without the bonus workout. As a person with a full-time job and a full course load, I appreciate being able to get in 10-40 minutes of work, whatever I choose, prior to getting on with my day. It is a mood and energy booster. The cardio hip-hop is fun but usually done on days when I don't feel like exerting myself much by punching and kicking. Don't think you won't sweat b/c you will, it's just a nice change of pace.
All in all I really like this set but that's because I did not own them individually prior to now. I did have to take away a star for the misleading title and description on the box. Yes it rankles a bit that it is billed as a Total Mix, when it is, in fact, not one but if you don't already have one or the other discs individually get the set and pass the single on to someome else.
*** Update: May 1, 2007
I am pleased to report that Quick Fix has repaired the 'two' dvd issue. I picked up the set, again, last night hoping they repaired the problem and yeah, they have. A friend will be lucky enough to inherit the two dvd's and I will be using the blender option regularly. As an aside you don't have to only use the blender option with this one you can play both segments separately as well. Yeah Quick Fix."
Very misleading Total Cardio Mix DVD

"Unfortunately, this DVD is totally misleading. I purchased it as it states there is ONE DVD with Quick Blender for over 100 combinations of Kickboxing and Cardio Hip Hop. Amazon states it is one DVD and the back of the box says to mix and match the 8 ten minute segments. Why the back of the box says..."two heart pumping,innovative workouts togehter on one DVD, you'll never be bored again", is very unclear.
There are TWO DVD's in this box, so if you want to purchase to separate workout videos, that is what you get here. I personally was looking for a mix and match combo.
