    Question about my brand new HD-A1

    OK- Bought my HD-A1 yesterday & set it up today. I have a 42" Hitachi Ultravision WITHOUT HDMI, but I was still impressed when watching the HD DVD of Apollo 13. I'll try an SD DVD tomorrow & will have a new monitor before Thanksgiving (that was already in the works). Here's my question...

    Many rainchecks at my local Target this week...

    Anybody else have this experience? Today, I was in the Target I use most frequently, I found the new releases endcap a virtual ghost town with plenty of pads of rainchecks. Some of these were for the series sets that are on sale, but the remainder were for this week's releases, esp. Aeon Flux...

    Advice on replacing my primary DVD player, please

    Well, the day is drawing near when my Panny RP56 is going to have to be removed from the rack and I am considering my next purchase. My 43" Hitachi Ultravision HD set does not have HDMI or DVI ports, so it appears that Blu ray or HD DVD are not an option. I am about 3 years away from replacing...

    WTB: Goodbye, Mr. Chips-LD (1969)

    This is the musical remake with Peter O'Toole & Petula Clark. Probably a shot in the dark, but thought I'd ask. Not yet available on DVD, I am looking for the LD & would settle for the VHS tape if no LD is out there. thanks!

    Jack & Bobby ongoing thread

    Did anyone notice the DVD of the premiere episode of this series in the 9/10/04 issue of Entertainment Weekly? I gave it a look last night and came away impressed. It's on the WB on Sundays & I think I am going to give it a chance. Anyone else watch it?

    Babylon 5 disc problem

    My son cracked open our set of B-5 season 1. He discovered that disc 2 actually had the episodes that belonged (and were found on) disc 4. So we got 2 sets of eps 13 to 16 & none of 5 through 8. Anyone else have this experience? Any advice on how to handle the situation? Thanks.

    Star Trek Deep Space 9 rebate

    As with TNG, Paramount is offering a rebate on seasons 6 & 7 of DS 9!. It's $20US and $25 Canadian. This requies proof of purchase tabs from both season 6 & 7 sets and the original sales receipt from EITHER season. Don't need both. Combine this with Costco's everyday price of $84.99 per season...

    ESPN HD aspect problem?

    I checked out ESPN HD which Comcast just added to my area. It seems as if I am getting a regular feed that is a bit stretched to cover the 16x9 field. Anyone else experience that? I checked for user errors-I have the HD input chosen & the right aspect as well. Actually, none of the 4 aspect...

    Nicholas Nickleby

    Pardon me if this has been mentioned- any word on the release date for the recent movie of Nchloas Nickleby? It came and went in an eyeblink. I kind of surprised it hasn't made its way to home video by this time.
