    Did BDA use fake forum accounts & blogs created to promote Blu-Ray - "Phase Hydra"?

    Just to be clear those are not my words. I don't see this as anything more than misinformation spinned to one sides advantage. Phase Hydra to me is just BDA's realization that the HD DVD camp is doing a better job of providing knowledgeable insiders to answer Q's and spin on forums...

    Did BDA use fake forum accounts & blogs created to promote Blu-Ray - "Phase Hydra"?

    Here is what Blu-ray Insider TalkStr8t says about this over on AVS Insiders thread: I'm not comfortable posting verbatim here from a confidential document, but I feel it's better to clear the air than to let misinformation inform the agenda...

    *** Official THE INCREDIBLES Review Thread

    I went into this movie for ROTS trailer, they didn't show it. What a disappointment. After the movie, I was so happy I stayed, the most entertaining movie I've seen this year "."

    North and South on DVD!?!

    Anyone know if there is any plan for this and who owns the rights for DVD? I've had many friends getting into DVDs now asking about it. I would also love to see this on DVD.

    Mistubishi 55" goldplus HDTV

    Good Price, probably because new models are coming out In July and August w/dvi inputs and more. Go to the forums section of the Home Theater Spot for manufacturer specific info. There is plenty info in the Mits forum regarding Red Push fix..

    Sony ES or Pioneer Elite Receiver???

    I've been a Pioneer owner for 9 years, starting with the standard line and moving up to the Elites that past 5 years. All I can say is that you will not be disappointed with an Elite. It's a great sounding receiver, probably one of the best for Music and Movies. I personally have never been a...

    *** Official "STAR TREK: NEMESIS" Discussion Thread

    Best Sciene fiction film of the year? Really? Seriously? Your kidding right? The only decent part was the battle sequences, but it no way near as good as Wrath of Khan. Hyping up the movie will only leave those yet to see it disappointed. It is what it is an average movie.

    Pioneer 47Ai first impressions

    SACD and iLink aside, Is this player better than the DV-38A? Mainly concerned with Audio/Video performance and build quality. I notice that the DV-38A still has a high price tag? I'm curious if there will be a DV-48i?

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: "A.I. Artificial Intelligence"

    Ron, The transfer should be near perfect, what you are seeing as grainy or soft is most likely due to the way it was filmed and processed. The low contrast was intentional to give the film the desired artistic look and feel.

    ***Official Blue Laser Software Disc. Thread*** (f/k/a "Hi-Def DVDs by Christmas?")

    Any fan of High Defintion should read up on FMD. It defenitely has the best potential for being the format of the future and it can be compatiable with existing DVD software. The Widescreen Review article provides an excellent introduction to this format. As far as pricing for HD-DVD material...

    QUEEN: A NIGHT AT THE OPERA a DVD-Audio review by David Tolsky

    No mater what anyone's preference is the market place will determine the final outcome. By complaint to both camps: WHERE THE @#$% IS THE SOFTWARE? I just listened to the DVD-A version of the Eagles Hotel Cailfornia, which includes a 24/192 stereo mix something I was waiting to hear. Well I...

    QUEEN: A NIGHT AT THE OPERA a DVD-Audio review by David Tolsky

    RicP thank you for clearing up the confusion. Ever since DTS announced that they were going to market DVD-Audio disks I became suspicious. It's clear they are very savy in marketing their product and confusing consumers with a DTS 5.1 mix on their "DTS Music Discs". Don't get me wrong why...

    Pioneer Elite DV-47A universal player announced

    I think I am OK with no Rosewood panels. Just to let you know I went so far as to order Rosewood side panels for the VSX-37TX just so it would match the DV-38A...cost about $160. While it looks nice, it was probably a waste. On bass management, I think doing it in the digital domain is the way...

    Pioneer Elite DV-47A universal player announced

    According to the Pioneer Guys @CES Rosewood is officially out, so don't expect to see it if there is a 48 model. Also I was told that it did not have the improved 2:3 pulldown they call PureCinema II. If anyone can confirm this please do.

    Reasons why I think DVD-A will survive

    PatrickM: You are absolutely correct, you cannot do a fair comparison with 1812 overture it was recorded in DSD, and converted for the DVD-A version. The techs at Telarc will even tell you that any comparison would be inherently flawed. Another point to consider is that the DAC's in consumer...

    How come there's no love for Pioneer Elite receivers on this forum ?

    I owned a VSX 608 and a DV-414, now I have a Elite 37TX, Elite A-35 and a DV-38A...I have to say I am very happy with them. I think it is by far the best combo for those that like to watch movies in a HT and listen to Music on stereo. It's not the Elite in HT, or the Elite in Music, but it is...

    how to identify the new JP (and LW?) dts discs + who has done a review yet ?

    Screw Universal and Best Buy. Those of you that shop at the Best Buy in West Los Angeles, DO NOT PURCHASE JP (WS) (DTS) for at least two weeks. There are currently none on the floor but they may try and put a returned one out there in the next few days. You do not want to buy that one. If...
