From the bits:
I was staying away from any tape-based formats going forward, but I'm leaning so far forward on this announcement I'm almost falling
For those that have been on the edge of considering a D-VHS player/recorder, you can pick up a refurbished JVC 30K for under $300 at ecost.com. It also functions as a regular VHS/SVHS player.
Yes, I just purchased one of the refurbs, but only the new 40k can play it.
So all 10 people will be enjoying their DTS.
I'd buy a D-VHS player if it could also play the old linear stereo tracks too.
Nah, I'll buy a refurb 30K for $300. The refurbs are more reliable than the original retail models. They don't do DTS, but at $300, who cares?
Oh great, so like the first-generation DVD players, the older D-VHS decks won't output DTS either? Here we go again... Glad I didn't buy an early one this time!
I read on AVS Forum that JVC had once mentioned the 30k could be upgraded via software to support DTS output. No idea if that will happen or not. No matter to me as I can't afford a player at the moment, though after Christmas I may be able to. But I'm definitely picking up these titles.
No, JVC has decided not to upgrade the 30K for DTS (why it didn't have it to begin with is a mystery).
Apparently they don't care about alienating their high-end customers. With all the problems the 30K had, you'ld think they'ld want to placate their customer-base, but then I suppose there'ld be less reason to buy a 40K. Not that I'd do that anyways...
Does anyone know if the DVHS Brotherhood of the Wolf is in the original french or the english dub? And will it have DTS?
According to Widescreen Review it will be in French, standard Dolby Digital 5.1.
