    IR2BT: Take Control of the PS3

    I also managed to get in on the first 200 of these, and so far I haven't had any problems with it. I have the IR2BT sitting beside my TV, and it's powered by a mini USB cable running to a wall adapter. I used a harmony 660 to download the codes from the Logitsch database, and then taught the...

    Official Playstation 3 Blu-Ray player Thread

    Which bluetooth to IR converter are people using? Is there a current summary of what's out there? The last time I looked (a couple of months ago), there wasn't anything that completely solved the universal remote problem. I'm absolutely amazed that there's not even an official Sony BT-IR...

    Branagh Hamlet on Blu Ray?

    I know that the original intent was to release on DVD, HDDVD and BR at the same time, but that the plans were changed at the last minute. Have there been any updates in the meantime that might change this? I've been thinking about picking up the DVD version, but if there's a BR version on the...

    Toshiba HD-D3?

    Has anyone got any idea what the Toshiba HD-D3 player shown on BestBuy's website is? Best Buy Canada Web Store: Home Electronics: DVD Players & Video Recorders: Toshiba HD DVD Player (HD-D3) I've heard of the A3 and XA3, but can't find any reference to the D3. Is it the same player, or...

    The Phantom Tollbooth-Any idea where it is?

    This movie came up again over the weekend, and of course it still hasn't appeared on DVD. Looking back over this thread, it looks like the 2004 release never happened, and now we're close to 2008 and still no news. Has WHV said anything more about this title?

    Blu-ray rebate question.

    I finally got mine a couple weeks ago, after sending it off in July. Long time to wait, but hey, free is free.

    Blu-ray rebate question.

    For those in Canada, you can call 1-877-823-0804 (BVHE) and check the status of your rebate. Sure enough, my discs are backordered, but at least I know they got the form.

    Is there anywhere that maintains a list of exclusive titles?

    I noticed Robert's threads listing the releases on each format, but is there a single thread (or website) that specifically lists which titles are available on one format or the other? I'm considering going dual format, but since there's a lot that's released on both formats now, the exclusives...

    Blu-ray rebate question.

    That fast? I sent mine in about 6 or 7 weeks ago and still haven't heard anything. Did someone find a number you can call to check the status of your discs?

    Blu-ray/HD-DVD vs Downloading HD Movies..

    My main problem with the digital route is that I like the idea of owning a movie that I can watch whenever I want. Any of the download services are likely to be PPV only, which just rubs me the wrong way. If I could get a full HD version of a film without DRM that I could access using a decent...

    Official Playstation 3 Blu-Ray player Thread

    Strange ps3 problem last night. I was watching an upconverted regular DVD, and I noticed that the audio was about hald a second out of sync. I'll have to confirm on another player, but has anyone else noticed a problem like this? I'm using optical audio and 1080i over HDMI (this was on Oz...

    Wasn't there supposed to be something in the BR spec about resume play? Either way, it's a feature I'd really like to have (bookmark the playing disc, and resume later on).

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: The Muppet Show - Season 2

    Yeah, the first season had a bunch of material that was produced for the UK, so I'm guessing that there'll be more of the same with this release.

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: The Muppet Show - Season 2

    Thanks Matt-can you confirm whether or not they actually included chapter stops on the episodes this time? The first season didn't have any, and for a show like this where you might want to get at single sketches, it's a little annoying not to have them.
