    Any reviews for "Halloween" yet....?????

    As much as I would love to buy this disc I cannot in good conscience. I think it only lets the studios know that they can put anything buy the public and they will buy it again. The double dipping is out of control. I love the sharpness, but, if they really do not stay faithfull to the original...

    DVD Thinpak and other Slim Cases

    Thanks to everyones comments on this thread, I ordered 120 thinpaks. I think thinpaks are the greatest thing since sliced bread. It is amazing how many keepcase covers lined up with the spline after a slight trim on each edge. I wish they would come up with a better design for the twinpak. I...

    I have the SA600 and I am very happy with it. It seems the 963SA has problems. The problems are reported over at AVS form. It is a long thread.

    Band of Brothers, in November, with DTS!

    To sum it up in one sentence. I would call BOB, Saving Private Ryan part 2. I watched all the episodes in HDTV and the picture and sound blew me away. I will look forward to buying this set in HD-DVD.

    Tosh 6200 Vs. 4700, worth switching

    The SD 6200 is my second toshiba DVD player. I have looked at the 4700 and agree with you it is poor quality. I am looking for a universal player. I hope this fall or at CES in January there will be some top quality players with slightly better picutre quality than my 6200.

    What I love best about Anchor Bay is the way they remaster the soundtracks into DDex and DTSes 7.1 surround.

    Warner's snapper cases: Is it just me???.......

    The snappers stink!! They do not stack well with the keep cases and they are just a cheap flimsy excuse of a storage system. Check out in a editiorial from a few months ago they gave an example of how to convert snappers to keep cases. I have done that with all my snappers. I...

    Fox pulls Super Bowl HD?

    If I was in charge of the FCC I would be hitting Fox with big fines for not broadcasting in 1080i/720p.

    If you think DVD is good, HDTV is better...

    Yes, HDTV is amazing! DVD's are not quite as exciting anymore. The reference show is on PBS: Smart Travels with Rudy Maxa. Now if only Fox would wake up and buy 1080I equipment. It is a crime that the World Series is not being broadcast in HDTV!!

    I am heart broken and in need of help with HD- TV

    My new Pioneer SD582 blows away my old Pioneer 4:3 set with DVD's. Maybe you should look at the Pioneer sets instead of Mitsubishi. I have a Toshiba SD6200 Progressive scan DVD player and satellite for HDTV. I bought the Avis disc to set up the Tv and after 9 months I had it ISF calibrated and...

    What is your favorite Star Wars movie?

    A New Hope - The Classic Empire Strikes Back - The best action but leaves you hanging. Return of the Jedi - Did Lucas want to make a Scfi picture or a muppet picture? TPM - Cold, Sterile, computer generated crap.
