    How the Grinch Stole Xmas: 50th Anniversary - New transfer?

    Travis, Thanks for the screen caps and for the tip about the CC offer! What an amazing difference in the colors. While my initial reaction to the new coloring in the train shot was that they had perhaps now gone overboard in another direction, you can see how the scene with the train (as well...

    Batman Vs. Dracula (animated): Well viewers, what did you think!?!?

    My son asked me to watch this with him on Cartoon Network Friday night and I was very pleasantly surprised. I thought the animation and story quality were quite a bit above average, and could easily see them making this story into a live action film IMHO (although I'm guessing that probably...

    Upconvert DVD player with VGA output?

    Try this for starters: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=344021 Many other threads on these players exist there as well. Just do a search for Momitsu in all forums and you'll find them. A couple other players to investigate would be the Oppo and the NeuNeo.

    In addition to the WMV HD clips, why not consider DVE Professional? It has a full disc of WMV test patterns (including HD) that may be a good supplement to your Sencore. http://www.extron.com/product/produc...d=videssentdvd

    Infocus 4805

    Do you have a link to a source which confirms this? I know the 7205 has a 48hz mode, but I've never seen anything which indicates the 4805 can do this. Thanks, Dan

    infocus 4805-great deal

    I went in last night and asked if it would be possible to get a price adjustment considering that I had just gotten the projector on December 19th. They gave me the adjustment (in cash, less the $100.00 mail-in portion) without any questions or hassles. I was very impressed that they did so, as...

    80's music videos on DVD :)

    The collection I would most like to see on DVD would be all of David Lee Roth's videos. I should have bought the VHS before it disappeared, but I'm still holding out hope that it will surface on DVD someday.

    infocus 4805-great deal

    OMG...the horror of paying tax...who would have thought??? :rolleyes: Personally, I feel that paying slightly more, $93.00 (in this case) less shipping/handling and/or tax (if any, I haven't checked the deal referenced above) is well worth a no hassle, extended, exchange/return policy with a...

    SCREEN SHOTS: 4 Brands Of Component Video Cable Compared....

    Interesting test. Thanks for sharing your results with us. However, IMHO, any differences in video cables (if differences are present between the cables you are comparing) are more readily apparent the larger the picture you are displaying. While 42" isn't miniscule, I would expect more...

    SP4805 Auto Aspect Ratio Switching?

    Don't quite a few of the Sony TV's autoswitch? I know my brother's 4x3 Sony has an 'enhanced widescreen' mode (I may have the name of the feature slightly wrong) which collapses the raster to 16X9 when it detects an anamorphic signal. While my brother is not a videophile by any means, he was...

    SP4805 Auto Aspect Ratio Switching?

    While I don't have the answer to what's needed to make it switch, I can tell you that the projector seems to know the difference between 16x9 and 4x3 as evidenced by a dialog box which will pop and say 'this program contains 4x3 content' when you are in 16x9 aspect mode. Like others, I wish...

    infocus 4805-great deal

    Why have to go to the trouble of returning it and then buying another? If you talk to them about having just purchased the 4805 for $1224.99, and that there is now the new price about one month later, won't Costco simply give you an adjustment (as well as a new receipt to mail in for the rebate)...

    Lest We Forget: Marilyn Manson's Best-of coming out with a DVD

    For those here in the US who have received the Japanese version, did you any problems playing the DVD on a standard US DVD player? Are the DVD menus in English? Are there any subtitles during the music videos like I've seen with some other imports? Basically, I'm wondering if the videos look...

    Lest We Forget: Marilyn Manson's Best-of coming out with a DVD

    Store pays for breaking street date

    If the studios audit the store's receipts for sales of their movies, and the corresponding dates of the transactions, then they can spot it very easily. That's the reason the store where a friend of mine works will not let any of their employees buy a title prior to street date.
