    HD-DVD help

    I probably just bought my last HD-DVD. I purchased my XBOX 360 last year for titles like the Bourne Ultimatum. Thing is the movie won't play! I have gotten two copies, and have the latest firmware. Still won't play. i can't even return it because of "copyright laws". That is pretty much it...

    HTF HD DVD Review: The Bourne Ultimatum (Combo)

    I just returned it for a new copy....still does not play. Does anyone have any advice? Bestbuy refuses to give me my money back, they want me to buy the standard DVD. I refuse to buy standard DVDs...

    dlp vs. lcd vs. plasma

    I have the "Sharp Aquos 65" LCD -- LC-65D90U -- $6700" and it is simply amazing. I have it in a very large family room with windows from the floor to the ceiling on almost all ends. No matter what time of the day the set is still spectacular from any angle. You can literally stand on the side of...

    HTF HD DVD Review: The Bourne Ultimatum (Combo)

    I just picked up and watched it tonight. I did not see it in the theatres because a lot of people told me the camera was too shaky and it made them sick... After watching it I didn't think it was any different then the first two. I actually thought the fighting scenes were easier to see. I...

    Receiver suggestion with Klipsch speakers

    Warm sound is something that you can only tell through actually listening to the receiver. Some receivers give off a cold, sort of I like to say tinny sound (I have a SONY like this and hate it). While other receivers will give you a rich warm sound. I am currently using a YAMAHA that I love...

    Who's using component?

    How did you upconvert on your PS3? - I have my PS3 hooked up via HDMI and the DVDs look pretty damn good (not compared to bluray of course)

    PS3 Remote Problem

    Ok so committed a sin. I opened the PS3 remote and threw out the package. Problem is how do you get it to work? I'm sure you need to set it up to the system but i cant figure out how. Normally you just put batteries in a remote and the thing works...no such luck here with the blu ray. Joe

    Best for $1K, no FP

    I am looking at the Samsung website...and notice they only have 1080p DLPs and 720p DLPs. Why no 1080i? BTW I have a Samsung HLS5688W and agree that the all black shiny finish is damn sexy, especially with black towers on the side of it! I would put in a vote for a Samsung DLP, I am very...

    Buying new 1080i TVs?

    Ok so I purchased a new 1080p Samsung DLP. And to be honest I feel like I paid way too much money for "1080p", and now that I have it I feel like it was all hype. Obviously all broadcasts are coming in at 1080i, also my XBOX360 add-on (1080i) looks better than my PS3, my PS3 also looks better in...

    PS3 looks better in 1080i than 1080p, also anyone try component?

    Dan, The 1080p is definitely not similar to 540p. I just noticed that there is less background grain with 1080i than 1080p. If you get around to it put your set up into 1080i and compare and let me know (Sopranos is a good BD to test this out). When I have the PS3 set for 1080p the...

    No Sound from Center Channel

    Are you getting all 5 speakers when watching non HD channels? I've got some obvious suggestions you might be annoyed with that they are so simple but sometimes we overlook things you know... Is the receiver in stereo mode? Try selecting a "movie" mode or or another mode like Dolby Digital...
