    Perry,
    How did you get such a nice listing of HD movies in CST like this?
    The Showtime web page doesn't list them quite like this.
    Thanks.

    I stole the template from Frank who had been posting the Showtime listings before. Unfortunately, I'm hand-typing the information from the Showtime webpage into this template, and converting the time to Central myself. It only takes maybe 30 minutes or so per month, so it's worth it to me to plan out when I can catch the movies that month.
    The only real problem is that Showtime constantly updates their webpage, so if I check back on any given day, they made add or change the specs on a movie.

    Perry, thanks for all the work and sharing it. I printed it out and will use it. I have only had ShowtimeHD one day but watched the Green Mile tonight, awesome picture for an upconvert.
    Technically, what does upconvert mean and HDTV and OAR? I mean are they actually natively filmed in HDTV? How are upconverts done? What is OAR?

    Tim:
    OAR: Original Aspect Ratio (what was shown theatrically).
    Upconvert: digitally scaling a 480i resolution source master tape up to 1080i resolution for broadcast. Basically, what you can do using a home theater PC and something like Powerstrip software.
    HDTV: means that they're using a full 1080i resolution source master tape and broadcasting that. Image quality is stunning, and if properly transfered and compressed, far better than DVD. Movies are transfered to video from film and a few television shows use HDTV video cameras and use 720p or 1080i resolution natively. Most, however, use film too.
