    Possible good news everyone! The Warner Bros. representative I deal with weekly said that the recent amount of e-mail they have received regarding the widescreen debate is making them reconsider their full-frame only policy [​IMG].Good work everyone keep up the pressure.
    Also if their are any HTF members in Victoria, BC, CANADA please write a letter expressing your concerns over full-frame DVD's, and if possible bring them to me at my store, I work at A&B Sound(contact me via e-mail if you need address), and I will personally hand them to Warner Brothers representative for Western Canada on her next visit. If anybody else would like me give her their letters contact me and I will see what I can do.

    That's great news! Let's keep up the good work. Remember, emails are fine, but written letters get more attention!

    Okay, I've related to all of you the experience I had at Best Buy with being told that "there's no such thing as a widescreen tv", and being refused a raincheck on WS Cats & Dogs. How I dropped a letter to BB's HQ, and cc:ed it by hand to the store mgr.
    I also related how the mgr called me up, apologized, and offered me a $5 discount (the amount of the savings on C&D) on any other movie I wanted.
    Today I got the reply from their HQ:

    FYI, I'm posting the following message from a Blockbuster store manager who is awaiting membership with HTF and wanted to share his view.
    Thanks.
