    Well-sort of. The big software hit at CES was a repressing of the THX WOW Laserdisc onto DVD. It was the original 7.5 minute montage of the two trilogies and Willow. It was an awesome tease and, I hope, a hint of things to come in the future. From what I heard, there were only ten floating at the whole show.

    These will probably show up on Ebay in the next few weeks and go for around $10,000 [​IMG]

    Michael,

    I've been hoping that this wonderful montage would find its way to DVD remixed for Dolby Digital 5.1 and sporting a new anamorphic transfer. I'm not surprized that it was the software hit of the show; this montage is the finest demo piece I've ever seen. Perhaps its appearance is a small glimmer that it might be made available. Did you happen to notice if the audio had been remixed for 5.1 and if it had been given a new anamorphic transfer?

    The video didn't look stellar but the sound was 5.1 all the way through. There was applause in the booth that I was it in.

    Figures this would happen. I just bought the LD last month ($65 on eBay for a sealed copy).

    I've got THX WOW! on DVD - DVD-R actually [​IMG] Looks as good as the LD I made it from, but it only has 2.0 Dolby Digital surround audio, of course. Plays perfectly in my Sony NS300 DVD player and laptop DVD-ROM!
