To the OP, I noticed this exact same phenom today at Best Buy. They had a nice Samsung display setup with a Blu Ray player playing some scenes of Batman Begins. Lots of the interiors shots looked "fake" as in not movie like but sports video like. And I dont mean fake in a bad way, it just didnt...
Bookmarked for future reference. I have the 65 inch model and had the same issue about a year after purchase. However I had purchased the 5 year warranty and had the authorized repair guy do the board swap out. Not a problem since.
I went to a local Best Buy on my lunch today to have a look around and apparently they had a Blu Ray player hooked up to a Samsgun 50 inch display with a model number ending in 71. This is a 1080p set with 250:000 contrast ratio with 120hz capability. They were playing some demo scenes...
I would check with Mitsubishis website and look for the PDF manual for that model. I remember seeing some diagrams that talked about proper disconnections of the cabinet and such. The closest I could find is for the WS-65809. http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/j/i/183...17&f1=2002&s=3
This is getting crazy. There are so many great choices now in receivers that I really have no idea which way I am going to go. Choices from Denon, Pioneer, Onkyo. Its just crazy all the things these new receivers do and all seem to do equally well. Ill be looking to upgrade from a 9 year old...
I have never seen this movie, but have wanted to get it for a long time. And after hearing from the original post about its video quality I will finally pick this movie up and experience it for the first time in high definition!
Ugh, Best Buys prices are insane for high def media. $29.99 to $34.99 is the NORM. I only buy high def media from BB if they have a sale. Most of the rest has been from Amazon. Also, returns for Amazon are easier than returns to a store. When I got TMNT, it was scratched to hell as it...
Oh for the love of all things holy why did this sale have to come now! I just did the Xbox 360 HD DVD 8 free movie promo. This would have been a great way for me to get format neutral but Ill have to wait.
Dont let that sour you on the format as a whole. The Gen 1 and Gen 2 players are all very capable and do a great job. A DoA unit happens in ALL fields of consumer electronics now and then. Yes, it sucks, but dont let it paint your vision of the format just yet.
Same thing with the 360 add on player. $179, it includes King Kong, you pick 2 more and after delivery send off for 5 from a list. I purchased the above today to add to my PC as I already have an HD A1 for the livingroom. Lots of free software!!!!
You can get HD DVD for $309 shipped now.
Well, when you compare having 50% off and 2 for 1 sales during a period of time when there simply wasnt much new HD DVD content to purchase I would call it a wash.
Beat me to it on this. Where is PeterTHX. He stated quite vocally, that there will NEVER be a combo player. EVER. LG has one, while a bit crippled due to no HDi support, audio/video wise, it gets the job done. Now Sammy here, who was the first to announce a combo unit, then to pull...
How cany they call it HD DVD if it does not support everying that the HD DVD spec defines? Not that I use the special features that much, I am in it for the video and sound. But to have a combo player drop the ball like that is inexcusable.
LG actually had a press release on their plans for some time. An actual press release hosted on THEIR servers. Then decided against a combo unit. So it was in the works for some time. One will eventually happen though.
If that were to happen are you saying it is good business practice to not shore up that other possible 25% of revenue and miss out on millions of dollars in additional profit? December may be too early, but as I said. Give it time.
Which will be fine and all, but look at Divx. They will follow the money. When they start seeing key segments of HD DVD sales and how well they will do, share holders will not be too happy that they shun the market of potential increased revenue. Give it time people. Give it time.
