    Older Toshiba CRT Projection Red Gun Issue

    So my trusty old ISF calibrated Toshiba TW40X81 is getting on in years but it has always served me well. When I first got it there was a problem with the red gun not shutting off when it was supposed to. This was most evident when the screen was black and not receiving a signal, there was still...

    Grand Prix: Will it EVER be released?

    So does Warner control this title or did MGM keep control of it? I wonder how the Sony purchase of MGM will affect this title if does still belong to MGM. I really wish it would be released but I'm starting to loose hope.:frowning:

    Getting contrast control back after calibration

    Kinda related to this thread topic but my question is regarding my almost 5 year old Toshiba TW40X81 projo that I had ISF calibrated a couple months after I purchased it. Ever since the TV has always been on the calibrated picture setting but now that the hours have started to build up on the...

    G.I. Joe Season 1, Part 1 DVD Reviews?

    I did a search but came up empty. Has anyone reviewed the G.I. Joe Season 1, Part 1 DVD box set? I'm interested in picking it up, I used to love the show back in the day and think it would be a blast to watch them for the first time in over 14 years. But is the quality of the transfers any good...

    The Apprentice Ongoing Thread

    Yeah I think the three challenges so far have been skewed in the womens favour though maybe not last weeks as much as the first and third challenges. Sex sells and the women are more then willing to use that to their advantage. I hope a challange comes up where that won't be a factor, at least...

    Theoretical scenario: Tool, Radiohead or Beastie Boys on DTS-CD--would you purchase?

    I would buy any release of any Tool album on any format. I already have DVD-A and can play DTS CD's but I would buy a SACD player just so I could listen to the Tool releases. Tool in a high resolution audio format.... I can only dream.

    So close to giving up on SACD and DVD-A

    Funny, you're close to giving up and I thought just recently how I'd given up on the formats, just no releases in either format that interest me. I haven't purchsed a disc in almost 2 years.

    NFS: Underground... So Which Version Is Best?

    I don't really care to much about graphics, if that was the only criteria I would pick up the PC version. I want gameplay and on Hot Pursuit, the PS2 was the best out of all the versions. I'm getting a free copy from EA since they recorded my car for the game and I have a choice of the game for...

    NFS: Underground... So Which Version Is Best?

    So with NFS: Underground coming out for every platform including the PC, which version is best? Normally I wouldn't be too concerned but after the NFS: Hot Pursuit problems where the only good version was the PS2 one and the others were butchered, I want to be sure to get the best version.

    Socom Ii

    Does Socom II come with a headset? I sold my copy of the original Socom last year and of course the headset went with it. You see I don't really wanna buy Socom II cause I won't play it online enough, but I want the headset because Manhunt will use.

    MANHUNT is coming soon

    This one game is the reason I'm going to buy a PS2 again and not an Xbox.

    Will my U.S. Xbox play "Region 0" 5.1 DVD's?

    As long as it's in NTSC format I don't hink you should have any problems at all.

    iTunes Meets Windows in October!

    Excellent article about iTunes for Windows below: http://arstechnica.com/wankerdesk/03q2/i-tunes-1.html As for myself I tried it but uninstalled it due to it's annoying file system, I can't purchase songs here in Canada, and the fact they use the AAC format which means I could not use what...

    Anyone know anything about the 2003 Ford ZX2?

    Are you looking to get a car right away? If not I would seriously wait and take a look at the upcoming Mazada 3. The new C1 platform it's on is shared with Volvo and the new European Focus. The Mazda will be a real contender and will offer excellent handling and the 2.3L engine is an excellent...

    Will copy protected CD's actually encourage bootlegging?

    Actually it would play in all my CD players, car stereo, etc but I refuse to load their player software onto my PC so I made the copy and then used Winamp to play it.

    Will copy protected CD's actually encourage bootlegging?

    I had no trouble at all getting around the copy protection on my latest CD purchase I made a copy for my car and ripped it to MP3 to listen to on my computer. The original sits on the shelf now collecting dust. All done with the CD burner in my PC and the appropriate software.

    Will We Getting The Redesigned PS2?

    I just want to confirm that the progressive scan support is only the DVD player side of things? It won't display every game in progressive scan...right?

    A Perfect Circle

    I don't think that there is any copy protection on the American version of the CD but up here in Canada there is since it's probably distributed by someone different than in the US. The original CD now sits on my shelf collecting dust while my back-up plays in the car and the MP3's on my...

    A Perfect Circle

    I just got it yesterday from work and it's really quite good. Much like the last APC album but it stands on its own. One track "The Nurse Who Loved Me" is a little odd.... but I had a little laugh. Overall the album is somewhat softer than the last but if you're an APC fan, you'll like it...

    "Xbox, Meet GTA. GTA, this is Xox."

    Bah. Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt...last year. Let me know when GTA 5 comes out and you'll have my attention. In the mean time I'm waiting for Manhunt.

    Call of Duty - Sucessor to Medal of Honor?

    Just finished playing the demo and it was all right. The AI was not that spectacular, the enemies pop their heads up pretty predictably. Good graphics and sound but it all just seems like more of the same....

    Will We Getting The Redesigned PS2?

    Hmmm, either or. I didn't think that the online pack that is available now had the preogressive DVD playback and intergrated IR port. Will the model with a built in HDD be coming here?

    Anyone looking forward to the upcoming A Perfect Circle release?

    I'm also looking forward to it. On another note, you guys should check out the single REV 22:20 by Puscifer featuring Maynard James Keenan, Danny Lohner. It's so good! It's featured on the Underworld soundtrack. I'm also trying to get hold of the single for Bring Me The Disco King (Loner Mix)...
