    The Transformers/GI JOE Dilemma

    Well, the complete series for Transformers and G.I. Joe will be available first at San Diego Comic-Con, then online (via Shout's website, presumably), then at mass retail sometime thereafter. Basically, both complete series will be out by mid-July. Special packaging apparently is a "foot...

    The Transformers/GI JOE Dilemma

    That makes better sense. Thanks for the clarification. The wording throws me off a bit. Perhaps "you will be able to get get the complete series before the final season volume is released" would work better. In any case, it sounds like final details are forthcoming, so we should have some...

    The Transformers/GI JOE Dilemma

    Another great comment by Brian Ward today in regards to the season set for Transformers (and I would assume GI Joe): If true, this would be amazing! Especially since the first season of Transformers is due 6/17, and G.I. Joe on 7/21. I can believe it for G.I. Joe, but it seems to be quite soon...

    Paramount TV DVD Cases: Who makes 'em and where can I buy 'em?

    Dredging this topic up once again to see if anyone knows of any company aside from the site linked in post #4 selling these CBS-style 6 disc cases. eBay doesn't have them, nor do any of the usual US-based sited I've checked. It still looks like the only option now is the Aussie-based site...

    Confirmation the PS3 will do this? (audio - AVMulti, video - HDMI)

    You certainly can output video on the PS3 via HDMI and audio via optical (and I'm assuming the AV muti-out). I had my PS3 set this way prior to my recent receiver upgrade. There are audio output and video output menus under the settings menu. From there you can select what method and...

    Looking for the most jaw-dropping DTS-HD MA track on blu...

    You remember correctly. As I said, the Yamaha with its internal decoding is a bit of overkill at this point as I don't require it to do any decoding as the PS3 does it all internally. But the PCM stream over HDMI of the DTS-MA track from the PS3 (damn, that's a lot of acronyms!) is output...

    Justice League S1 Announced for Blu-Ray 8/19

    I certainly concede the fact that season one of JL was aired as half hour episodes with the conclusion of each story the following week. Ya just can't argue with gospel, y'know! :laugh: I'd be very interested to see if Timm and co. are on record as to what they prefer for the presentation of...

    Justice League S1 Announced for Blu-Ray 8/19

    ...and of course Wikipedia is gospel :) But, checking epguides.com it appears that they were originally aired as 30 min. episodes separated by a week. This does not discount the fact that Cartoon Network did air them as combined hour (or 90 minutes for the first and last episode) long episodes...

    Justice League S1 Announced for Blu-Ray 8/19

    I will definitely pick this up. Two things I'd love for the release: 1) Widescreen (looks better when cropped) and 2) Edit the two parters into one 40 minute episode each (as originally aired). Having the episodes split in two with "to be continued..." seems a little out of place since I believe...

    Looking for the most jaw-dropping DTS-HD MA track on blu...

    I am using the PS3 as my blu-ray player of choice (love all the other multimedia aspects of that system). Even though not currently necessary since the PS3 does all the internal decoding, I own a Yamaha RX-V1800 as my main receiver. Great sound out of that baby! I needed a receiver that...

    Blu-ray multi-disc cases - where to purchase?

    I wasn't really sure if this was the right place to pose the question, so mods move it if need be. I am unfortunately stuck with the multi-case version of the Spider-Man trilogy and not the ever-so-sexy single case release every Target seems to carry. I can get the cover to the single-disc...

    Looking for the most jaw-dropping DTS-HD MA track on blu...

    FWIW, I am format neutral, but lack a DTS-MA decoding or bitstreaming player, so that's out, but thanks for the suggestion; I'll take a look at that site for sure. I'd love to get Live Free or Die Hard, but was put off with the theatrical-only edition. Now if Fox never released an unrated...

    I've never even heard of The Orphanage, but maybe I'll take a look at it this weekend...I'm guessing Pan's Labyrinth has a pretty amazing DTS MA track as well.

    Exactly! :) Of course I've got PCM discs and TrueHD discs, but want to play with an MA disc! Thanks for the suggestions. Any more? mike.

    I've finally updated my receiver and can now fully immerse myself in HD audio goodness! What I'm looking for is suggestions from first hand listening to various blu-ray discs as to DTS MA quality. I'd like to find a disc with some great demo material to show off the new receiver. Any...

    News on Playstation3 DTS-MA decoding & 1080 deinterlacing support

    Thanks for the help and information. I guess I'll have to study the manuals for any potential receiver to make sure I get the right one.

    News on Playstation3 DTS-MA decoding & 1080 deinterlacing support

    I'm still in the standard def age as far as receivers go, so I think I need a little more clarity on this. As was stated, the PS3 internally decodes DTS-HD, DTS-MA, and Dolby TrueHD. This PCM data is then transported via the HDMI cable to any HDMI capable receiver (regardless of labeled...

    Spider-Man -films (Blu-ray) on 10-30-07

    So I was in Target today and noticed that they have the blu-ray trilogy for sale in a single case instead of the three case set everyone else has. I love to slim down space as much as possible. Does anyone know of a way to contact Sony to get the single-case to replace the three cases that I...

    Paramount TV DVD Cases: Who makes 'em and where can I buy 'em?

    Thanks to new member Bob Flaminio, the cases have been located! http://www.pcx.com.au/products/index...aging,14mm,six One problem, though: They're ~$2.75 US dollars each!!!:eek: Now if someone can find a stateside dealer selling these for under a buck, I'll give you a shiney nickel.*...

    Paramount TV DVD Cases: Who makes 'em and where can I buy 'em?

    Roy, Thanks for the reply, but those aren't the cases I'm looking for. I've been using these cases for the last year and a half: http://www.shop4tech.com/item3706.html They are 14mm width spines (the standard keepcase width) and have worked pretty well. However, the case holds two discs...

    Paramount TV DVD Cases: Who makes 'em and where can I buy 'em?

    I'm referring to the "standard-width" clear cases that can hold 6 discs (like Beauty and the Beast, 7th Heaven, and others). Two discs are held on each inner cover, while the remaining four are held on two inserts. There's no overlapping discs, and it saves a lot of shelf space. Anyone know...

    Beauty and the Beast (Pearlman/Hamilton)

    Could someone post pics of the inside of the case for season one? I saw this set at target and was wondering how they've manage to fit the six discs into a standard sized keepcase. I've got a bunch of my 6-disc sets in standard sized cases that overlap two discs on the inner covers and hold two...

    Justice League & Batman Beyond

    A Question: On the JLU set, disc four, it lists the episode order as being Question Authority and then Hunter's Moon. This is indeed how it is on my set, but it is the reverse order in which the episodes were originally aired. As Question Authority leads directly into Flashpoint, it's kind of...
