    Free sample HD DVD that comes with DVE test patterns and a piano piece in TrueHD. I think the cheapest shipping comes out to $3.95. Ordered mine today and just thought I'd pass the info along.

    Cool, this'll be my first HD disc! The site says it's still being authored though so who knows how long it'll take to get here. Still have to pick up a Warner title while they've still got that HD intro on them, want to get an early Blu-Ray disc too.

    Thanks for the heads up. I just ordered mine and the shipping to Canada is $10 for any other Canucks that are interested.

    I hope no one is eagerly awaiting the disc because I emailed them over the weekend and they stated that they're still authoring the discs so when they replicate them then they will ship them out. They said expect around the middle of November.

    ...and we still wait. How long can something like this take? Has anyone gotten an update as to when this will be ready?

    Aren't the test patterns going to be take from Joe Kane's HD Video Essentials? If so, you're going to be wait for a long time.

    Yes they are. We won't see the sampler disc until they figure out what they're doing with the HD Video Essentials.
