    I need some input about my LG OLED65E6P

    Had the same problem with my LG OLED 65-inch. Was preparing to say goodbye to my 200+ 3D blu-rays when I decided to Google the problem. There were an amazing number of folks with the same issue. So I went through some of the methods mentioned to fix the issue. Not sure what did it. Might have...

    Movies you want on HD disc but don't expect to ever see

    Waited to see if one of my favorites would show up. Didn't see it so I would like to see an HD, widescreen version of Away All Boats. At this point I'd even settle for an iTunes digital version, but no luck there either. Still have the Goodtimes pan&scan DVD which I guess will have to do. I...

    Have to agree (mostly). Was very disappointed. I checked several scenes by removing my glasses and there was no depth at all. Could have watched those without glasses. This was on my LG OLED 65-inch panel. Seemed like a half hearted effort to convert it to 3D.

    Fatman (2020)

    Bought the Blu-ray, loved the movie. Even listed to the commentary track which I don't normally do. Being retired Army didn't like the way Goggins character dealt with the opposition. But hey, movie's got to movie. (Watch too many of those "pitch" videos on YouTube) Was a good B+ for me.

    Kino-Lorber Insider Announcement Thread (Read Guidelines Post #3)

    A while back Away All Boats was mentioned as being the sole Universal Vista Vision title. Was hoping this might have been part of Kino's Universal deal, but nothing further was mentioned. Was there no interest in offering this title or is there some other issue?

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Popeye – in Blu-ray

    Watched it last night on my LG 65" OLED connected to my OPPO 203 player. In my opinion it looked gorgeous. I'm 73 and I've been in this hobby since the 60's. I'm not an expert, don't claim to be. Just know what I like and I like this disc. Even the extra's are first rate. Although some of the...

    Pre-Order Wonder Boys (2000) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Okay just received my copy of Wonder Boys from Amazon. It is a burned disc. Popped it in my iMac LG Blu-ray external drive to give it a quick look. Using the Blu-ray Player Pro app, it looks very good. Only just sampled it. Should look even better on my OLED. Took a look on the Best Buy site and...

    Looking for an external hard drive

    I'd go with the WD drive. Both the 2 and 4 TB versions show up on Amazon for under a $100. I recently needed a large external drive to store my drone videos and bought an 8TB Seagate. Had problems using it with my iMac. Would not show up on the desktop after waking from sleep. Returned it to...

    Do Blu-rays rot?

    Wanted to update my post but a little research tells me that it cannot be done after 24 hours. So okay then. I sent off an email to Warner Brothers and got a very quick and nice response from their Home Video DVD/Blu-ray Support section. The lady who responded said she was working from home...

    Do Blu-rays rot?

    Thanks for the heads up. Just pulled my copy off the shelf and sure enough, it's bronzed. Won't even load in my LG Blu-ray burner hooked up to my iMac. Had to restart my computer to eject it. Been living in the low desert of Washington state for 30 some years. Thought the low humidity would be...

    Kino-Lorber Insider Announcement Thread (Read Guidelines Post #3)

    A while back there was a mention of VistaVision titles and it was stated that the only Universal title in VistaVision was Away All Boats. Now as this is one of my all time favorites and I would really love to ditch my Goodtimes DVD pan and scan version, I got my hopes up to finally see this film...

    Pre-Order The Sons of Katie Elder (1965) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    It bothered me enough to make me switch all my Amazon orders to Best Buy. The fact that they do this without mentioning it on their site irritates me more than a little bit. I'm sure they are making some extra money off this. More than a little otherwise why do it? I researched BD-Rs and I see...

    Pre-Order Timeline (2003) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I checked out the recording I did on my DISH DVR of the TMC showing of the film a while back. I'm guessing it was from an HD master cranked out for the premium channel circuit. Thought it looked pretty good at the time. Definitely better than my DVD copy. However looking at it now, I did notice...

    Can’t Access Home Page From Desktop

    Well since I started this thread, let me finish off my involvement with it by first saying that Safari on my iMac is working JUST FINE at this point. Sorry that did not come across in my earlier comment. ;) Don't know why it is still not working for Charles and DaveF. And after reading Dave...

    Can’t Access Home Page From Desktop

    Just logged on and it is working. Closed out of Safari and logged in again. Wasn't a fluke. It is working. Been using Safari for many years and have not had any issues that I can remember. So whatever was changed, it fixed the issue and I'll take it. Thank you.
