    SCROOGE (Albert Finney) is coming this October to Blu-ray!

    I see that it's on HDnet next week. They just recently showed "Saturday Night Fever", also a Paramount title that Ron has confirmed is coming to BD next year. Ron? Any news? Would be great to have but until then I'm sure the HDnet version will tide me over.

    VERY odd. TV movie on TNT MAR'd from it's OAR

    Hi All! Watching "A christmas carol" with Patrick Stewart on TNT and it's letterboxed! Now this was a 4X3 TV film done for TNT years ago. My DVD is 4x3 FS, suppossed OAR. Now TNT is doing MAR on it's own programs and showing them WS to boot? Strange... Happy holidays!

    With Paramount defecting, SNF and Trek coming up and the too good to pass up Amazon deal, I couldn't help it. The HD-a2 + 3 Free HDdvds from a select list for $202 shipped with my earlier 10% discount. And then the 5 freebies making a total of 8 movies. Couldn't hold out. The Smurfs at AVS...

    Is it the same DACs...? I'm aware that the HD-a1 and Hd-xa1 are fab sounding for analog CD playback. Curious if the HD-a2 is as good. I know it doesn't have the 5.1 analog audio outs but AFAIK it does have 2 channel (L,R) analog out. # Audio Output # Analog 2ch 1 # Digital Optical 1...
