    I wish studios would use DTS HD MA as the standard

    I felt this way too. But I dropped only $500 on a Yamaha 663 with TrueHD and DTS MA HD decoding. Of course the PS3 just sends it as Linear PCM, but it sounds amazing. It's well worth the upgrade. Of course perhaps you feel that if you were to upgrade you would get something...

    Sony releases v2.40 firmware for PS3

    My dad's PS3 was actually one that bricked. It installed and rebooted, then Says the "SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT" and the thing just sits there and waves. Restarting wont' do anything. I actually had an extra HD drive, and installed it and now it boots fine. Super wierd...

    Transformers BD 09/02/08

    There will probably be alot of people to do this. I for one would have the capabilities to compare, maybe not blindly unless i have somebody turn it on for me. I haven't had a chance to enjoy true Dolby Digital + or True HD, or DTS MA HD untill I get a new receiver tomorrow... I'm...

    Universal Studios on Fire

    Huh? I've been watching this on the news for a few hours. To my understanding there was shooting going on...and possible damage to the king kong ride. I do not believe the film vault is yet burning, but I know it was said to have been "threatened". It's still a bit unclear...

    TRANSFORMERS 2 Rumblings/Filming!

    So this movie is still planned for release in just over a year? They better get crankin'....not to say they aren't, but for a movie this big, it's an interesting time scheme.

    *** Official HTF HD Formats Comparison Thread *See Post 957, p. 32*

    I would imagine HDM sales are ultra-cruddy right now. Very few decent releases lately, and the HD-DVD purchases have dropped off the face of the earth. And I definately dont' see that translating to more Blu-Sales. So HD-DVD less, while Blu-Ray has the same, means less overall.

    Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl Framing Issue

    I just ordered one off of amazon that i'll receive tomorrow. I'll test it out. I'm assuming it should be a corrected version what with Amazon's Blu-Ray traffic.

    Should WB and the BDA give HD DVD owners a "peace offering" to welcome them to Blu?

    Haha, I did. But to be honest, you're completely right. I dont' know which way it's going, but I felt like it was the right time to get into Blu-Ray because it was definately gonna be a longer time untill the movies I wanted came red too.

    Toshiba Deploys New HD DVD Marketing Initiatives Based on Strong Fourth Quarter Unit

    Toshiba enthusiasm does make me feel a little bit more like I have 2 sweet formats instead of one and a crippled one. I donno, I've actually been enjoying HD-DVD a little more lately. My gosh Children of Men was a good film. Clive Owen must reallllly like babies. Shoot Em Up...

    Modern? Solos? Bar Band music?

    Something truly original. The Fall of Troy. Portugal the Man. Sort of classic, not really, more indie progressive. Idonno, I like mostly progressive stuff.

    Amazon Blu-Ray & HD DVD sale - titles up to and over 50% off! 1/11/08

    Even though the sale is on both Sides, HD-DVD titles are ranked FAR FAR below what they used to be. I ended up picking up Pirates At Worlds End, for 1, it's pretty much brand new, so for it to be $19.99 now is a pretty good bet for the best deal in a while. I actually dont' own the...

    Spider-Man Blu-ray triology $100 at BBY?

    I re-enrolled for Amazon Prime. It comes in super handy, for anything, and most certainly pays for itself. Like books for college, I can order for cheap, and not have to wait either without loosing the price advantage over shipping. So, now that these Blu-ray releases are all...

    Some of those movies have been at those prices for a week by the way. They just added alot more titles.

    Should WB and the BDA give HD DVD owners a "peace offering" to welcome them to Blu?

    If that did happen, I'd be $186 richer, and have a bunch more stuff that I no longer do. However, right now I'm happy to enjoy more movies overall.

    Universal at CES

    Nope. Which is a bummer, because had the HD-DVD camp been rolling on would most certainly would have gained some sweet Catalogs out of them. Now we get nothing.:frowning:

    Universal at CES

    Oh yeah, Wireless, the first thing I did. I'm just really really pissed because I can't get my laptop to correctly share anything. My Xbox 360 stopped finding it as a source as well. I dont' know what to do to fix it. I've opened all sharing, and done everything I possibly can think of or...

    Hey, secretly I wanted a pat on the back from you when I bought a PS3... I'm secretly still waiting. Even a high five would be sweet.

    Amazon Blu-Ray & HD DVD sale - titles up to and over 50% off! 1/11/08

    I'm in this little, money conservative mode, RIGHT after I bought a PS3, and now this software is being dangled in front of me. I'm holding off. I can wait for the next deal. ........I've made it this far.

    Has anyone gone Blu since Friday?

    Alot of my friends said things, but i was like "it's about movies mannnn" Yeah, I donno. It's sort of fun actually just HAVING a PS3. I love 28 Weeks Later. It's soooooo effin dramatic. It's a bit heavy to enjoy casually, but damn, so moody.

    Looks like Paramount has an out clause

    I was looking more closely at my Local Best Buy's Blu-Ray selection. Pretty much every single Paramount title that came out before dropping Blu-Ray, is still there with about 3 or 4 copies. Also, That was 5 months ago. That's how slow they sell.

    Universal at CES

    I'm positive that it would definately get a TrueHD track. The DVD was sort of bare for special features, so wouldn't expect that to get in the way.

    Universal at CES

    I'm getting really impatient for more announcements. I think we all want to what more titles they are planning to release in the extended support of HD-DVD. The HD-DVD slate is barren, and you can bet on the fact that they were going to competitively release more catalog titles. Also...

    New to Blu? Buy a PS3: the most featured BD hardware available...

    I could take advantage of analog inputs, but because I enjoy the occasional PS3 exclusive (maybe, not yet, haha) and because of everythign else the PS3 has an advantage in, I picked one up. Also, I had credit at gamestop, which I couldn't have gained anywhere else that had a stand alone.

    Looks like Paramount has an out clause

    I wonder what Paramount, and Universals pricing scheme would be for back titles that were previously on HD-DVD. Expensive? Or reasonable?

    Has anyone gone Blu since Friday?

    It's actually a very sturdy piece of composite wood, lol. Made of plastic and wood, so its better than real wood :laugh: . It's very sturdy as long as I don't hit it.
