    LG BP-550 - Internet Connection Pop-Up Message won't go away.

    Hi. I've had the LG BP-550 for a little while now and until recently, I've never had a reason to ever set up the internet connection on it. I needed to, in order to watch youtube videos to fix a sync issue, which I've taken care of. Now, I don't use this as a streaming player, and am not signed...

    Looking for assistance on sync issues- reference discs & scenes- Denon AVR X1600H

    Any recommendations for blu ray or DVD clips or scenes? The youtube video will work for my TV and my streaming devices like Roku, but not for my physical disc player which has no wifi capability.

    Looking for assistance on sync issues- reference discs & scenes- Denon AVR X1600H

    I recently purchased a Denon AVR-X1600H. I previously had a 1906 which had no HDMI inputs, etc. so I thought it was time for an upgrade. The problem is nothing looks in sync to me. I'm using high-speed HDMI cables and eventually gave up and have nearly all my devices plugged into the TV and am...

    UHD Review Tenet UHD Review

    In addition to the freeze, I did notice an odd flicker once in awhile. This morning I spot checked the bad spot and it played without issue, then I saw the flicker, jumped back to go frame by frame and it didn't repeat. Definitely something odd with Sony's player, methinks.

    UHD Review Tenet UHD Review

    Thanks Jeff & co. I wasn't aware there were over a hundred 4K discs, but glad some people are having less problems. Yes, the firmware is up to date and I've rest to factory settings which was Sony's big idea of a fix. It did nothing. I have no problems at all running regular blu rays or DVDs...

    UHD Review Tenet UHD Review

    Watched this tonight and the 4K Blu ray looked phenomenal, but this is the third 4K disc I've watched and both completely froze up during playback. In Tenet it was at the 1hr52min mark and completely locked up and would not play forward. I was able to jump back a chapter and moved ahead to the...

    Windjammer: The Voyage of the Christian Radich new restoration

    The new clips look phenomenal, David. Kudos for all your hard work and sacrifice. It's quite an upgrade. Any chance the Blu-ray will have the Norwegian audio track?

    Richard Schickel has passed away

    His biography of D.W. Griffith was terrific. Highly recommended. RIP Mr. Schickel.

    The Vestron Video Collector's Series from Lionsgate

    I hope Waxwork will be the unrated version.

    Stephen King's IT (1990) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I hope this release is actually OAR 1.33, and not the B.S. 1.78 of the DVD release.

    NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS -- blu-ray restoration

    There's no real puzzle, in regard to continuity- it's not the kind of restoration that would be assembled from trims and outs or unedited raw footage. A 35mm picture element exists of the completely finished longer cut, with all the additional scenes and extensions in the order they are...

    NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS -- blu-ray restoration

    Correct. Some audio for the additional footage survives, the rest was re-looped by the actors in the intervening years.

    Killers From Space (1954) DVD (Restored Edition)

    I second the vote- the Legend copies of The Killer Shrews/The Giant Gila Monster are gorgeous. Thanks for the heads-up on Killers from Space. Probably the best copy yet released.
