I see that now the HTF logo says, "Now in High Definition". Well I gotta tell you, the picture quality of the web site seems the same to me. Posted Image


The above is just a joke, so nobody freak out.

can't be BluRay, I don't see MB and other MPEG2 artifacts. Maybe it's just poorly mastered HD DVD. Posted Image

You need to buy a new display to take full advantage of HD!
or
You need to recalibrate your display to take full advantage of HD!
or
You need gazzillon dollar interconnects to take full advantage of HD!
or
You need a Monster Power Line Conditioner, other wise HD will not work!

Sorry about the inconvenience... I think Ron was worried about piracy, so the image constraint token was activated.

Hmm. Seems we're using the 1080i 3-2 pull down master, the so-called 1080i60htf3-2pd.
None of you are on www.hdhtf.com, aren't you? And you are bobbing us?

The problem is that HTF isn't using VC1 compression for their images.

Funny Stuff.

Agreed. The resolution seems the same. Maybe it just cost more to run.
