    Thank you!

    We do not have RotLA on DVD, however we now 'have' it on HDTV. Great!

    You're welcome Mike.

    Let's hope ABC does these two films the right way. You've got to give ABC some credit, at least they are committed to showing their prime time movies in HD. Last night, DR. NO looked very good considering it's age, although the audio was fair but that was not unexpected. The HD broadcast here from the Miami affiliate (WPLG) was very nicely done.

    TV: Toshiba 40H80

    STB: Samsung T-150

    Receiver: Yamaha 995

    If these are new digital transfers of Raiders and Temple of Doom, might it mean that the DVDs can't be far behind. I can't imagine Lucas/Spielberg doing a new tranfer just for an OTA broadcast. And if Indy IV is really finally in the works, I can't see them not capitilizing by releasing the DVDs.

    They did High-Def remasters and 5.1 mixes on the Indy movies 2 years ago when the new VHS tapes came out (and the cancelled LDs) It's a matter of Lucas/Speilburg letting them out
    Anyone with an HD set near Philly? [​IMG]
