    Link: This can't be real

    Sean, Seems like a good explanation.. I sent the info the FBI website anyway.. You never know. Deja.com is down right now, but I'm still thinking about the seven days thing. Maybe this kid just got lucky and ran with it. Either way he will get a rude awakening soon I'm sure. I mean no one...

    I had actually never seen Gandhi until I rented the DVD the other day. All I can say is WOW, they don't make movies like this anymore. They don't make men like Gandhi anymore, or perhaps he was more than a mere mortal. What a wonderful film. A very nice DVD with a fantastic transfer, that...

    Whos getting Super Speedway?

    The original Super Speedway DVD has an aspect ratio of 1.33 correct? Is the difference between 1.33 and 1.44 acceptable because it's a smaller percentage than 1.33 to 1.78? What if they cropped it to 1.55 would that have been better or worse than 1.33? What's the point of all of this? Point...

    Question on Subtitles

    Carl, Ok, that makes sense that it's controlled by the encoding. Do you know of any players that allow you to move them up and down? ------------------ Mitsubishi 55807 Toshiba 5109 Yamaha RX-V496 DVD Collection

    Question on Subtitles

    Question on Subtitles

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this but here it goes. In the last couple of months I've been using mattes for my TV and they are wonderful! Except for movies with Subtitles. Crouching Tiger is a good example of a movie where subtitles are in the letter box area so I can't see them...
