Last time I looked at the DVD of Harry Potter and Order Of The Phoenix it was on a CRT with anamorphic squeeze and I didn't notice anything that detracted from it shown that way. Fast Forward to now, I have a LCD and a newly acquired Order Of The Phoenix blu-ray (Thanks Dave Scarpa) It looked fantastic and it had uncompressed 5.1 PCM that was so vibrant that I had to check out the old DVD and see how the sound compared in DD. I forgot about the sound when I saw the picture on the DVD. It was noisy and you can see "crawl" in the textures in the picture. I couldn't believe how bad it looked. I took it out of the blu-ray machine to see it in another DVD player and it was still there (though it looked more subdued). I don't think I was reacting to seeing the DVD image after looking at the blu ray one. I think the image looked bad for DVD. But on an old CRT, back when it first came out, I didn't notice anything wrong. It makes me wonder if these newer DVD's are being designed more to be used by people that haven't gotten an HDTV yet. And for those that do have one, the lack of good picture quality would spur someone onto blu-ray much faster. Or maybe there was just something wrong with my copy.
