    LG BP-550 - Internet Connection Pop-Up Message won't go away.

    Hi. I've had the LG BP-550 for a little while now and until recently, I've never had a reason to ever set up the internet connection on it. I needed to, in order to watch youtube videos to fix a sync issue, which I've taken care of. Now, I don't use this as a streaming player, and am not signed...

    Looking for assistance on sync issues- reference discs & scenes- Denon AVR X1600H

    Any recommendations for blu ray or DVD clips or scenes? The youtube video will work for my TV and my streaming devices like Roku, but not for my physical disc player which has no wifi capability.

    Looking for assistance on sync issues- reference discs & scenes- Denon AVR X1600H

    I recently purchased a Denon AVR-X1600H. I previously had a 1906 which had no HDMI inputs, etc. so I thought it was time for an upgrade. The problem is nothing looks in sync to me. I'm using high-speed HDMI cables and eventually gave up and have nearly all my devices plugged into the TV and am...

    UHD Review Tenet UHD Review

    In addition to the freeze, I did notice an odd flicker once in awhile. This morning I spot checked the bad spot and it played without issue, then I saw the flicker, jumped back to go frame by frame and it didn't repeat. Definitely something odd with Sony's player, methinks.

    UHD Review Tenet UHD Review

    Thanks Jeff & co. I wasn't aware there were over a hundred 4K discs, but glad some people are having less problems. Yes, the firmware is up to date and I've rest to factory settings which was Sony's big idea of a fix. It did nothing. I have no problems at all running regular blu rays or DVDs...

    UHD Review Tenet UHD Review

    Watched this tonight and the 4K Blu ray looked phenomenal, but this is the third 4K disc I've watched and both completely froze up during playback. In Tenet it was at the 1hr52min mark and completely locked up and would not play forward. I was able to jump back a chapter and moved ahead to the...

    Windjammer: The Voyage of the Christian Radich new restoration

    The new clips look phenomenal, David. Kudos for all your hard work and sacrifice. It's quite an upgrade. Any chance the Blu-ray will have the Norwegian audio track?

    Richard Schickel has passed away

    His biography of D.W. Griffith was terrific. Highly recommended. RIP Mr. Schickel.

    The Vestron Video Collector's Series from Lionsgate

    I hope Waxwork will be the unrated version.

    Stephen King's IT (1990) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I hope this release is actually OAR 1.33, and not the B.S. 1.78 of the DVD release.

    NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS -- blu-ray restoration

    There's no real puzzle, in regard to continuity- it's not the kind of restoration that would be assembled from trims and outs or unedited raw footage. A 35mm picture element exists of the completely finished longer cut, with all the additional scenes and extensions in the order they are...

    NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS -- blu-ray restoration

    Correct. Some audio for the additional footage survives, the rest was re-looped by the actors in the intervening years.

    Killers From Space (1954) DVD (Restored Edition)

    I second the vote- the Legend copies of The Killer Shrews/The Giant Gila Monster are gorgeous. Thanks for the heads-up on Killers from Space. Probably the best copy yet released.

    "The Alamo"s Status?

    Apparently, there's an over 1,000 page book on the making of The Alamo from Bear Manor Media. Anyone read it? http://www.bearmanormedia.com/not-thinkin...-just-rememberin...-the-making-of-john-waynes-the-alamo-by-john-farkis?search=alamo

    Win an Onkyo TX-NR1030 9.2 channel Dolby Atmos AV Receiver

    I acquired my Denon receiver just when HDMI hit, so I can't connect HDMI to it. I find the display a bit limited and the lack of ability to play TrueHD and other lossless tracks a disappointment. Looking to graduate to something cutting edge and I love the Atmos technology.

    Whisper of the Heart sound glitch

    Have you checked it against the Japanese track to see creatively how it's handled on that stream?
  20. Darren Gross


    I wonder if Warners still has the 35mm print of the roadshow cut. If not, perhaps it's in the hands of the same collector who has the A Star is Born roadshow prints. That could be one of the reasons it's a non-starter...

    100% sure. Multiple people on Blu-ray.com forums have confirmed it.

    What is the rarest film ever you would like to be released on Blu-ray?

    For me: LIMBO with Kate Jackson from Universal. Dying to see this one.

    Two of your dreams have come true, I'm happy to report. KILLDOZER is out on a Universal burn-on demand DVD. Hop over to Amazon via the HTF friendly links elsewhere and voila!

    Meteor (1979) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Very interesting- that youtube clip certainly sounds like genuine stereo. While released in mono in the states, clearly it had a stereo release internationally. I stand corrected.

    Meteor (1979) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    METEOR was never released in 4-track MAG or Dolby Stereo- it was a mono release all the way. Mono is the original mix and the way it's supposed to sound. The laserdisc claims stereo, but I haven't listened to it in years. It could easily be a misprint. If not, it's a faux upmix. Not...

    What would you like to see next from criterion?

    DILWALE DULHANIA JAYENGE is the same film I requested- THE BRAVE HEARTED WILL TAKE THE BRIDE. Terrific pic. Sholay was released in 70mm but it was a blow-up, as it was shot 35mm. The 70mm did allow a multi-channel soundtrack though. While there's a vast number of Bollywood films in DVD from...

    Deadly Eyes (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    A very welcome release. I remember catching most of this on HBO as a kid and the rat POV shots giving me nightmares. I've read that it's actually pretty silly, with dogs in giant rat costumes, but it will be nice to take that trip down memory lane, since it hasn't been available since the old...
