    Blu-ray multi-disc cases - where to purchase?

    I wasn't really sure if this was the right place to pose the question, so mods move it if need be. I am unfortunately stuck with the multi-case version of the Spider-Man trilogy and not the ever-so-sexy single case release every Target seems to carry. I can get the cover to the single-disc...

    Paramount TV DVD Cases: Who makes 'em and where can I buy 'em?

    I'm referring to the "standard-width" clear cases that can hold 6 discs (like Beauty and the Beast, 7th Heaven, and others). Two discs are held on each inner cover, while the remaining four are held on two inserts. There's no overlapping discs, and it saves a lot of shelf space. Anyone know...

    The Best of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (review)

    I just picked up this 2 disc set and wanted to pass along my impressions. First off, it was awesome to see a He-Man DVD on the shelves! It's been a long time coming. For a while I was collecting the UK released single disc sets, but at $20 a pop (roughly) it was becoming too expensive. So I was...

    Alright, so Rhino gave nuthin' but excuses as to why the remaining 15 episodes of the 80's G.I.Joe cartoon were not include in the season 2 (part 1) set, claiming something to the effect of waiting for more suitable extras, and planning on releasing something extra special for part 2.

    I recently picked up a component cable for the cube and switched the game to progressive scan as outlined in the manual. However, the game stays in a 4:3 format and does not "automatically" switch to a 16:9 format. Am I missing an option in a menu somewhere, or does the game not include a...

    How small are the increments of the zoom compared to the Malata? No one seems to ever have a definitive answer on this question. Can it do small steps or is it only 1/2, 1/4, etc.? Thanks, mike.
