    From The Futon Critic:
    I'm ready to break out my copy of "Dark Side of the Moon" for this, are you?

    (Mods, feel free to move this to another area if it would be more appropriate)

    Interesting to see what they'll do since I believe "Wizard.." is a 1.33 OAR film.



    The first commercial break will mess the timing up.

    I didn't even know the WB broadcast in HD... anyway, I don't get that channel on my service. [​IMG]

    Dave, I'm pretty sure "Oz" will be pillarboxed (rather than cropped). I mean, they pillarbox Seinfeld, Survivor, and other 1.33:1 programming, so hopefully the same will be true for one of the great movies of all time!

    Never underestimate the power of a HD receiver card and freeware HDTV editors. That's the beauty of HTPC.
