    PAL DVD's... Ugly effects!!!

    Thanks Brian, think i'll give the Oppo a shot. it just seems strange that Pal material would look fine on a much inferior display and then awful on an HD set. Thanks again, J

    Problem using region free player and plasma.. need help, Please

    Thanks Paul, After doing a little research on the Panny, it seems only the commercial models display a native Pal. My display is consumer based so it does not output a native Pal signal (the DVD player has to convert it, right? ... i'm bad with the technical area, hope this makes some sense.)...

    stop asking Paramount for Four Flies On Grey Velvet

    More Argento is always a good thing and you gotta love the criterion-esque care that BU puts into their releases... Very sweet news :) a bit off topic, and i apologize if this has been discussed in another thread but has there been any word on the Giallo box set BU is suppose to release?

    Have you ever done the squeeze on your TV by going into the service mode?

    This is probably a ridiculious question but, what is the difference between doing the squeeze in the menu mode as opposed to the service mode? I just figured that you would be getting the same resolution regardless? Most likely i'm missing something here, and sorry to just jump in with a...
