    I recently made the jump to HD with a great deal on the Sony 370 Blu Ray player. I am stunned by the picture quality of Blu Ray discs on my 40" 120Hz Samsung LCD. Perfectly happy. However... SD DVDs are problematic. The 1080p upconvesion is decent, but my old Oppo 720p upconverting...

    from the freak who brought you the "DIVX Only" list... THE IMAGE/UNIVERSAL list!

    Early in the history of DVD, Universal lisenced out a number of titles to Image Entertainment. These DVDs tended to re-use old laserdisc transfer, were almost always non-anamorphic and contain very few extras, if any. And they are now out of print and are very hard to find. Slowly, Universal...
