    Another "taking the plunge" post....help appreciated.

    I'll apologize in advance for any redundancy here. I am strongly thinking about getting an HD-XA1 and the Samsung BDP1000, as there are pretty great deals around on both at the moment. I was originally thinking about waiting for the 1.3 equipped players, and I realized I would spending...

    DVD Review Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit: Some thoughts....

    I did a search and did not find any threads in the DVD forum for this title. I was really surprised at this. I missed my chance to see it in the theater, and finally got my hands on it this weekend. What a wonderful film! Extremely clever, well-written, and hilariously funny, but not in an...

    Question for Columbus OH area residents

    Thought I might get a few replies here so here goes.... My fiance and I are driving to Columbus this week to see a hockey game (vs. Detroit). She's been to the area before, but not downtown, and I've never been there at all. Our hotel is about a mile away from the stadium. The hotel people...

    Question on AMD 64 chip and fan

    I'm building a PC for a friend, which includes an AMD 64 3500+ processor on a DFI Lanparty UT nF4 SLI-D motherboard. Also running a BFG 7800GT video card (just one for now) and a couple of SATA drives. This is the first time I've worked with an AMD processor, and I've noticed a few times that...

    Financial question...

    Question for any that may have had experience with this. Let's say someone you know (not me unfortunately ) receives a large check, which totals more than one (or several) banks can insure under FDIC. You want to deposit the check as soon as possible so the money is "yours", but you're not sure...

    Adviced needed on an MP3 player

    Not sure if this is better suited for another forum but I thought I'd post it here. I bought a Rio Carbon 5GB MP3 player last month. I like the design and it sounds great, but I've had a decent amount of issues with it booting up properly. Judging by several user forums I've read, I'm not the...

    Question on mounting surround speakers

    Hey all, I apologize if this is not the right place to ask this. I have 3 Infinity ES250 surround speakers that I want to mount hanging from a support beam in my basement. Trouble is they have the "keyhole" type of bracket on the back of the speaker, and most wall mount brackets don't seem...

    I'm confused....Throw Momma From "A" Train?

    From DigitalBits: This is the second place I've seen the movie referred to as Throw Momma From A Train. It's Throw Momma From The Train. I'm wondering if the MGM press release is wrong. I was beginning to think there was some other movie with a similar title. The announcement mentions a...

    West Wing Season 4 - new packaging details

    Haven't seen this mentioned, but West Wing Season 4 has a new style packaging than the previous 3 seasons. Instead of the four-disc foldout, it is now the "book style" six panel case, sort of like Star Trek: DS9. And yes I said six panel, because hallelujah, there are no flippers in the set. Six...

    Just have to ask (Sandra Bullock related)

    Ok so Yahoo is my home page, and I've been confronted by this picture every time I open my browser today: Generally I don't think SB is terribly attractive anyway (with the exception of Demolition Man), but this picture is just downright unflattering in my opinion. She looks horrible. Bad...

    Escape From New York single-disc - new transfer?

    I just picked up the single-disc Escape From New York from Target. It's got the newer style MGM 16:9 logo, and the copyright date is 2003, the year of the two disc SE. The big blurb at the top is also different. I believe the old one said "Dark and Dangerous". This one says "Riveting". The video...

    Rammstein - Reise Reise

    Anyone else hear this yet? I couldn't wait for the US release date (which I think is either 11/2 or 11/16), so I ordered it from Amazon UK, as it released worldwide last week except for the US and Canada. I'm loving it so far. I think they've gotten even more gothy and melodic on this release...

    Screen capture question in PowerDVD

    I tried searching this topic but did not find any relevant threads. Please excuseme if this has been covered. When I use the Capture Frame function in PowerDVD (in this case, version 4.0), when I paste 16x9 content into MS Paint for instance, I get a 720x480 picture, which winds up stretching...

    Dream Theater - Live At Budokan DVD

    Just got this in the mail today. Was very pleasantly surprised to find it's anamorphic widescreen. I've been previewing it in my PC at work and it looks and sounds great. This should be a no brainer for any DT fan. Best Buy has an insanely low price on line for pre-order-9.99! Their ad lists...

    Ministry - House Of The Mole....

    Just had to say that I am really digging this disc. Easily the best thing they've done since Psalm 69. Animositisomina was a definite improvement over Dark Side Of The Spoon, but Houses... has all the attitude and creativity of the early 90's stuff along with some surprisingly melodic songs...

    Possible sound issue with Kids In The Hall Season 2

    Just got my Kids In The Hall Season 2 set. In episode 2 on disc 1, from around the 8:00 mark until about 8:25 (when Scott Thompson is talking on the phone), the sound goes all "warbly". I've only gone through the first two episodes so I don't if it happens in later episodes yet. Has anyone...

    Help me identify this movie or TV episode

    I just got done watching a Season 8 X-Files episode called SureKill where a guy can see through walls and shoot people. This reminded me of something I saw a while back, and I think it's an X-Files episode as well, but I'm not sure. I remember an assassin or sniper being able to fire a gun...

    Back To School 16x9 - does this exist or not?

    This subject has been mentioned a couple times in threads devoted to other topics, but I thought it was time for it to have its own thread. I've seen a couple reports that MGM has *quietly* reissued Back To School with a new 16x9 transfer. Apparently the packaging on the new disc does state...

    Simpsons 03/21/2004

    Surprised there isn't a thread on this yet. I thought this episode was hilarious. The Galaxy Wars stuff was pitch perfect. Although between this episode which is obviously directed at Phantom Menace and the Contact spoof in last week's couch gag, it makes me wonder if they're pulling out old...

    Layer changes on concert DVD's?

    Just starting to get my feet wet on concert DVD's. The first one I watched this weekend was Steve Vai's Live at the Astoria London. Awesome show BTW-great PQ and audio, wish it was 16:9 though. Anyway, the show itself was almost 2.5 hours. For some reason they decided to put the layer change...

    Buffy Season 6...May 2004?

    Just got my Buffy Season 5 set in the mail-thank God no floaters! Anyway, as usual with many Fox sets, the "Continue your collection" ad was included. However, it says May 2004. I've read release dates of 7/6/04. I know the set may have been manufactured before the street date was released...

    Are You Being Served set 2 glitch?

    Hey all, I know a few people may have got the latest Are You Being Served set, so I thought I'd ask. On Volume 12, in the Grounds For Divorce episode, at the 0:00:18 mark during the intro, the sound stutters for about 2 seconds, but the video is OK. Has anyone else had this problem...
