    Thanks, that review answers the question for me.

    Disney's "Runaway Brain" (1995) in HD?

    I have Disney's "Runaway Brain" Mickey Mouse short on the 2004 DVD, Walt Disney Treasures: Mickey Mouse in Living Color, Volume 2. Recently I picked up a used copy of "Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection" (2015) in blu-ray + DVD. After buying it I learned that when new it had...

    Is your Pinocchio also the 1999 "Limited Issue"?

    Disney's "Make Mine Music" DVD plays zoomed

    Thanks, that's interesting. I'm pretty sure I bought these at DVDExpress, a major online DVD retailer at the time. I used to follow the list of new DVD releases, and I would have bought these as soon as they were available. I would be surprised if they're bootleg. Are there any tell-tale signs...

    Disney's "Make Mine Music" DVD plays zoomed

    I've found a solution, sort of. See "ANOTHER UPDATE" in my original post.

    Disney's "Make Mine Music" DVD plays zoomed

    I have a Sanyo FW65R70F TV and a Sony BDP-S360 blu-ray player. When I play Disney's 1946 "Make Mine Music" DVD ("Gold Collection", 2000), it plays zoomed so that it fills the 16:9 screen side to side, and the top and bottom of the picture is cut off. This problem doesn't happen with other 4:3...

    How do you access the mini-movies on the Despicable Me blu-ray?

    Disregard, I was confused. First, it's not the two Despicable Me discs that are affected; it's the two DVDs. The two blu-ray discs in the case both do play the mini-movies. Second, if you look close enough, the back of the case, it says so. After the two Mini-Movies blurbs there is a cross...

    Roku TV: End credits go to small window

    I asked this on the Roku community forum but no response, so I thought I'd try here. On our Roku TV, when we reach the end credits of a streamed movie, sometimes it goes to a small window, and the rest of the screen becomes an promotion for some random other movie. When that happens, how do we...

    HD Tivo image quality on 4K television set

    We've had our Tivo Roamio Plus since 2015, watching it on an HD DLP TV, and all was well. Recently we upgraded the TV to a 4K model, the new Sanyo FW65R70F. On the new TV, streamed HD content upscaled to 4K looks great, and blu-ray disks in our old blu-ray player (we still don't have a 4K disk...

    How do you access the mini-movies on the Despicable Me blu-ray?

    How do you access the mini-movies on the Despicable Me blu-ray? I have the blu-ray and dvd from the "3 Movie Collection" box set of ~2016. The mini-movies on the Minions and Despicable Me 2 disks are easy to find, but I don't see them on the Despicable Me disks. I've looked on both the blu-ray...

    20 Year Old 5.1 Surround Sound System

    Thanks, but according to this article which I found by googling keywords from your answer, that may not be true of my set which was a new model introduced just last month: https://www.avu.ca/audio/tv-preventing-enjoying-true-surround-sound/ Are there any movie scenes where I would be able to...

    20 Year Old 5.1 Surround Sound System

    I have a ~20 year old 5.1 surround sound system buried in the back of a storage room. It predates HDMI; the receiver's best audio connection is optical. My television set has an optical output (Sanyo FW65R70F). Before I become a human backhoe and go dig it out, any thoughts on whether it would...

    Jog/Shuttle Dials

    Will jog/shuttle dials ever make a comeback on disk player remotes? I used to enjoy stepping back and forth a frame at a time examining animated films on laserdisc. Are there remotes today that work well for that? Back when DVD arrived, I read that it wasn't possible with DVD because each frame...
