    The Amazing Race 12

    Is it me or has this season's Amazing Race aired without a team that the majority of viewers found annoying (Mirna & Shmirna)?

    iPod touch (iTouch!) owners thread!

    My only complaint with the Touch is that the touchscreen cannot be used while wearing gloves.

    Are there Blu-ray replication problems with Blade Runner?!

    My 5th disc which is supposed to be "the Work Print" is mislabelled and actually includes "the Final Cut" (disc 1).

    7.1 mixes arriving on HD discs plus DTS-HD on HD-DVD US release

    That was me. The 7.1 indicator lights lit up during the New Line "intro", but during the movie my 3808 only indicated 5.1 DTS-HD MA.

    Future Shop's Boxing Week - BD/HD-DVD 2 for 1 sale!

    To BB's credit, they did have a much lower price on "Enemy of the State" BD than Futureshop. I initially paid $40.99 for the movie and then noticed the next day that BB finally listed it on their site for $29.99. Later that day I stood in line for 1.5hrs to get the movie price matched at FS.

    Future Shop's Boxing Week - BD/HD-DVD 2 for 1 sale!

    You should have price matched it against Best Buy's price of $34.99, Futureshop would have beaten it by 10% of the difference.

    Future Shop's Boxing Week - BD/HD-DVD 2 for 1 sale!

    I bought myself 6 BD and 6 HD DVDs. The last day for the promotion is tomorrow. There were a couple of times when the price in their computers did not match the price listed on their website and one time when I later returned to have a disc price matched against Best Buy's online price.

    PS3 Tv set up

    No conversion required, I am Canadian...I could swear the top end of his price range read $4500 earlier. Oh well, my mistake.

    PS3 Tv set up

    The Sony 46" XBR2 LCD is right at the top of your price range. It works perfectly with a PS3, obviously, and had 3 HDMI inputs. Do you have the SA 3250HD box or the HD PVR, the 8300 or something like that, because the 3250 only has a DVI connector. Although admittedly, I have my 3250 connected...

    Universal Remote won't work on Xbox 360

    The 360 uses IR. I can control it through my (first generation) Philips Pronto which is IR only. The controllers may use RF. The IR window on the 360 is rather small, point the universal remote directly at the IR window and see if that helps.

    Is XBox 360 the way to go?

    The Nyko Intercooler? I wouldn't, many people have attributed the premature death of the 360's to the use of the Intercooler.

    Keep losing my internet connection

    Try a different network card. If that doesn't work, try another cable modem.

    Blu-ray owners: What BR titles do you have, are you excited about?

    Underword Evolution Kingdom of Heaven Blackhawk Down The Corpse Bride Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow Talladega Nights (I had no choice, it came with the PS3)

    Will there be an A&E Biography DVD with Dolly Parton?

    A double disc set, no doubt. :D

    Superman Returns

    Two Graphics Cards, one machine?

    I think you mean HDCP? :D

    FWIW, the Costco locations in the Greater Toronto area have Volume 1 and Volume 2 on sale (each $15 off their $65 regular price) until December 10. If anyone is looking for these for the upcoming holidays, check out the Etobicoke location, and possibly the Woodbine location, as these are rather...

    Does the PS3 upconvert standard DVDs?

    PS3 as a DVD Player - Upconvert?

    Hank is right. I have a 1080p LCD, BD movies play at 1080p, but SD movies only run a 480p. For now I can use either my XBox 360's HD DVD addon or my Samsung HD960 DVD player to play SD DVDs in 1080p.

    PS3 Anyone have one ?

    The only problem that I have with the PS3 is that there aren't any exclusive games that appeal to me aside from Resistance. Right now, I don't see why anyone in their right mind would pay eBay prices for a PS3. If you have a whining kid asking for a PS3 for Christmas, and you are a parent that...

    Help Setting Up Xbox 360!!!

    Did you get the Premium (white box) or the Core (green box) system. The Premium comes with component video cables, which as CRyan noted, has a swtich that lets you select HDTV. I believe the Core system comes with regular AV cables.

    Which digital camera do you have?

    My primary camera is a Sony Alpha with several Sigma and Minolta lenses and accessories. I also have a Sony DSC-P200 and a DSC-T9 for those candid moments when a large DSLR won't do.

    XBOX 360 - should I get the 2-year extended warranty?

    Since you are already getting a $100 rebate, you may as well.

    360 HD DVD drive, not so hot...

    From what I've read, there is a problem when you switch to the TrueHD Audio option on the disc, in particular, Batman Beyond. I don't have the drive yet, this is just what I have read.

    an opinion on rear surrounds?

    I wouldn't know, I never really auditioned them. I think the difference would be negligible especially since they will be used for rear surrounds. However, Paradigm did suggest keeping the speakers from the same product line.

    an opinion on rear surrounds?

    We have the same speakers, except I have a PW2200 sub. For my rear surrounds, I used a pair of Atoms...I know, I should have used Minis.
