    The Transformers/GI JOE Dilemma

    Well, the complete series for Transformers and G.I. Joe will be available first at San Diego Comic-Con, then online (via Shout's website, presumably), then at mass retail sometime thereafter. Basically, both complete series will be out by mid-July. Special packaging apparently is a "foot...

    The Transformers/GI JOE Dilemma

    That makes better sense. Thanks for the clarification. The wording throws me off a bit. Perhaps "you will be able to get get the complete series before the final season volume is released" would work better. In any case, it sounds like final details are forthcoming, so we should have some...

    The Transformers/GI JOE Dilemma

    Another great comment by Brian Ward today in regards to the season set for Transformers (and I would assume GI Joe): If true, this would be amazing! Especially since the first season of Transformers is due 6/17, and G.I. Joe on 7/21. I can believe it for G.I. Joe, but it seems to be quite soon...

    The Transformers/GI JOE Dilemma

    RE: GI Joe Series set: --Posted by Brian Ward on the Shout! Message boards 4/13 So Transformers will be out by the end of the year, and G.I. Joe significantly sooner!

    Paramount TV DVD Cases: Who makes 'em and where can I buy 'em?

    Dredging this topic up once again to see if anyone knows of any company aside from the site linked in post #4 selling these CBS-style 6 disc cases. eBay doesn't have them, nor do any of the usual US-based sited I've checked. It still looks like the only option now is the Aussie-based site...

    Confirmation the PS3 will do this? (audio - AVMulti, video - HDMI)

    You certainly can output video on the PS3 via HDMI and audio via optical (and I'm assuming the AV muti-out). I had my PS3 set this way prior to my recent receiver upgrade. There are audio output and video output menus under the settings menu. From there you can select what method and...

    Looking for the most jaw-dropping DTS-HD MA track on blu...

    You remember correctly. As I said, the Yamaha with its internal decoding is a bit of overkill at this point as I don't require it to do any decoding as the PS3 does it all internally. But the PCM stream over HDMI of the DTS-MA track from the PS3 (damn, that's a lot of acronyms!) is output...

    Justice League S1 Announced for Blu-Ray 8/19

    I certainly concede the fact that season one of JL was aired as half hour episodes with the conclusion of each story the following week. Ya just can't argue with gospel, y'know! I'd be very interested to see if Timm and co. are on record as to what they prefer for the presentation of the...

    Justice League S1 Announced for Blu-Ray 8/19

    ...and of course Wikipedia is gospel But, checking epguides.com, it appears that they were originally aired as 30 min. episodes separated by a week. This does not discount the fact that Cartoon Network did air them as combined hour (or 90 minutes for the first and last episode) long episodes at...

    Justice League S1 Announced for Blu-Ray 8/19

    I will definitely pick this up. Two things I'd love for the release: 1) Widescreen (looks better when cropped) and 2) Edit the two parters into one 40 minute episode each (as originally aired). Having the episodes split in two with "to be continued..." seems a little out of place since I believe...

    I am using the PS3 as my blu-ray player of choice (love all the other multimedia aspects of that system). Even though not currently necessary since the PS3 does all the internal decoding, I own a Yamaha RX-V1800 as my main receiver. Great sound out of that baby! I needed a receiver that...

    Blu-ray multi-disc cases - where to purchase?

    I wasn't really sure if this was the right place to pose the question, so mods move it if need be. I am unfortunately stuck with the multi-case version of the Spider-Man trilogy and not the ever-so-sexy single case release every Target seems to carry. I can get the cover to the single-disc...

    FWIW, I am format neutral, but lack a DTS-MA decoding or bitstreaming player, so that's out, but thanks for the suggestion; I'll take a look at that site for sure. I'd love to get Live Free or Die Hard, but was put off with the theatrical-only edition. Now if Fox never released an unrated...

    I've never even heard of The Orphanage, but maybe I'll take a look at it this weekend...I'm guessing Pan's Labyrinth has a pretty amazing DTS MA track as well.
