Ouch. That's gotta hurt.
This thread could be helpful if the original post weren't so focused on being snarky.
Bummer. I guess that's why they include the SD version on those combos. If the HD doesn't work then try the SD.
Also, Brett, has the article you linked to changed, or did you do some creative editing?
Jest or rib poking is more like it, but for those overly sensitive it may come across as snark I suppose. Besides, where's the snark police in the BR threads?
Anyway, enjoy Children of Men. Great film, saw it in the theater. If it came out in BR I'd buy it in a second.
The article changed. I clicked on it earlier and it said what Brett quoted.
Indeed. I don't recall anything about the XA2 having trouble playing it earlier. Snarkster that am I, I certainly would have quoted that as well.
You mean those BR threads started by HD DVD advocates specifically for the purpose of snarking over a recent development? Could you point me to those threads?
Also, you're right, one man's snark is another man's jest. I could say one would have to be overly dull to see this instance of snark as plain jest, but that would just be confrontational. Kind of like accusing others of over-sensitivity.
Much ado about nothing. This is not the first disk that has had some problems, nor the last. Both camps have had pretty equal issues with disks that won't run on one player or the other. My Sammy has had more than a few issues with disks as has my add-on.
The few I have had were fixed within a few weeks with updates from the manufacturers.
True, you could say that. I could say one would have to emotionally unstable to get upset about a silly disc format, but that would be confrontational so I won't say it.
Well, I can confirm that my copy that arrived today from Amazon plays fine in my HD-DVD add-on. Looks mighty fine, too.
As someone once said to me, what's good for the goose.
Anyway, back to the ostensible topic of this thread. As luck would have it, I find myself in the same position as James. I came home today to find my copy of Children of Men waiting for me (ordered from Amazon with Super Saver shipment late Monday night -- wow!). It loaded up flawlessly and jumping around for a few spot checks, I saw nothing amiss.
Can't wait to watch it next week (stupid friend getting married in Florida this week is gunking up my movie plans ) and, as Thomas said, clearly much ado about nothing!
All I know is that I can't wait to get Children of Men on Blu Ray.
That's too bad, cause you're gonna have to.
Please Lord don't let the HTF adopt a "smackdown" atmosphere...
I like BrettB since he likes Star Wars....but this might be a bit better if he actually had a HD DVD player.
All in good fun I'm sure. Brett just wants everyone to know how much he wants Blu-ray to win.
Guess some of us need to go back and find BD issues and start making threads about them just in case the BD faithful might have missed them.
Like the recent one intitled "Why is Blu-Ray a sucess when HD-DVD can do more?", which was apparently started by someone whose whole life is dedicated to complaining about the non-uniform implementation of BD-Java across various manufacturers' models?
Oh I agree the spreading of this stuff is on both sides.
Oh hell, PLEASE don't let this forum become anything like what AVS has morphed into. A bunch of idiots who spend all day slamming each other and swinging their format of choice schlongs around!
Tim! we watched Rocky B the other nite! LOVED it. Great film!
... and then moved and subsequently closed.
Reading the thread that was started on that forum, it looks like there hardly isn't a problem at all, BTW.
I will receive mine soon, I hope, and report anything unusual here.
Brett, what about yours? When you played 'Children of Men' on your XBox 360, did you notice any of the problems that made you genuinely worry and start this thread?
That was precisely my thought when I first responded to this thread.
Anyway, I should say I forgot to mention in my earlier post that it was an Xbox 360 add-on in which I had no problems at all playing Children of Men.
