    Hey guys,

    I have my new Toshiba 51H83 hooked up and fine tuned and was wondering if you guys could tell me which dvds were good to show off/test my new TV. Or if anyone knows of a site that has lists of these type of dvds...I'd appreciate it.

    There's several threads in this very forum, I believe.

    But, here's a few off the top of my head..

    Star Wars Episode II -- some argue the picture is too "soft" however, the pure digital transfer is of impeccable quality.

    I like Monsters Inc also. The vibrant colors jump out at you. Most any Pixar title will work also. These are pure digital transfers as well.

    The Fellowship of the Ring extended edition presents a good picture, I understand. I don't own it.. I'm waiting for the HD-DVD. [​IMG]

    Congrats btw on your new Toshi... you may want to check out THIS SITE on how to do a 56pt conversion. Also, if you haven't already, invest in a calibration DVD (ie: AVIA). After doing these two things my picture was greatly improved.
