    Am I the only one who finds it completely ridiculous that they would bother putting HDTV on the air and then leave the network logos on the screen? I won't watch anything on standard TV with a logo, I sure as hell won't watch HDTV like that! (Belle looks like she's about to suck up that (abc) )!

    Ahh. You can get a nice 30 degree angle of viewing and compression does not intrude into the experience.

    Agreed that the logo on the HD station is rather silly.

    Darnit...but I SO wish I had a digital recorder to have taped that. What is the equipment you use?

    That pic looks 100 times better than the digital screen capture from the same scene on the DVD.

    I find visible scan lines a lot less annoying than intentional vandalism of the picture. That's like having digital-quality radio and intentionally putting background noise over the music. Shows a complete lack of thinking on the part of whoever's in the TV business these days (I wanted to work in TV a long time ago but decided not to, this being one of the reasons why.)

    Those pics sure are purdy. By the time my area gets HD, my sight will be so bad it won't matter!

    Maybe Disney will think twice about putting 600 versions of the same movie on 1 disc.

    I doubt it. If it'd sell more, they'd put 601 versions on the disc. [​IMG]

    Mark, thanks for posting those gorgeous screen captures!
    For comparison, I captured the same frames from the DVD:

    Here are some side-by-side comparisons of details from those frames.
    In each pair, the HD version is on the left, and the DVD version is on the right (blown up to HD resolution).

    Your comparison shots are great!!! Thanks for finishing what I said I was going to do. After the first few negative comments I didnt think anyone cared so I wasnt going to waste my time by posting the DVD screen shots I had taken. Ive been really suprised by the amount of negitive comments toward HDTV on this forum.

    Yes, thanks for those shot comparisons. I just can't believe that with all the silly copy-protetion crap that Disney is constantly throwing around that they just out-of-the-blue send out a 720P HD image over the air!
    Was it the special edition?
    In any case...it certainly shows how worthy HD resolution is...especially on a large screen. [​IMG] It also demonstrates how poor the compression is on this particular DVD title [​IMG]

    I watched part of that broadcast (55-inch Mits) and the image was fantastic, and it will be a long time before I spin the DVD again. Santa, how about one of those JVC D-VHS players? Oops, on the wrong list again this year? [​IMG]

    Just curious... backing up the OTA HD broadcast onto the HD... do you still have the ability to edit and chop out the endless ABC commercials?

    Thanks,

    Miles

    "Ive been really suprised by the amount of negitive comments toward HDTV on this forum."

    *I've* been really surprised by the apparent lack of protest over logos on HDTV (and regular TV for that matter, which I no longer watch for this reason)! I'd be really pissed if I'd spent thousands of dollars to upgrade to HDTV only to have the picture ruined like that! If I do get an HDTV and it requires an external tuner to get over-the-air broadcasts, I won't bother buying the tuner. (And as annoying as commercial breaks are, if they're placed with consideration as they sometimes used to do, they don't ruin the mood NEARLY as much as an always-present logo! Plus the ads pay for the show, the logos don't do anything but inflate the egos of the networks!)
