August 28, 2007 - Venturer Electronics today announced the launch of its first HD DVD player for the North American market. Responding to strong consumer demand for high definition video playback devices, Venturer will...
I honestly expected more from this film by all the hype that was generated. Don't get me wrong, 300 is an excellent special effects movie that utilizes CGI to it's maximum. It did however have some flaws. For one the make-up/animation on the disfigured Ephialtes could have been done much...

HD-DVD or Blu-ray... which one? :dontknow: Who will win the format war? :boxer: Can both succeed? :ponder: Why and what are your thoughts? :nerd:
It seems as though several threads get side tracked into an HD-DVD vs Blu-ray discussion... and rightly so for several of them because the...
I was looking at the cover of Happy Feet HD DVD last night. I notice the DD+ track is labelled as 5.1EX, the TrueHD track is labelled as 5.1.
My system currently does not have the ability to do EX processing on either of these formats.
I'm assuming that these mixes are the same, with DD+ being...
Here is a question that hopefully someone will be able to answer. I am thinking of purchasing a HD-DVD player within the next few months as the prices are slowly starting to come down on this side of the pond (Europe). The player would be used for both regular dvds and HD material and would...

Alexander Revisited: The Final Cut (Warner)
Part political message movie, part action thriller, part love story, Blood Diamond weaves all these parts together into a single cohesive film. On top of a good story the great performances by Leonardo Dicaprio, Jennifer Connelly and Djimon Hounsou make it an overall believable adventure. There...

Okay, I am really interested in getting an HD-DVD player.
I currently have a Panasonic RP-91 progressive scan that I really like. It zooms in on non-anamorphic movies, plays DVD-Audio, is really quiet in operation, and has a great picture, albeit 480p.
I had no idea HD-DVD players had dropped...

I have a newbie question about the hook-up of the XA2 for these updates. I do have broadband but only to one computer, no network in the house. Will I be able to plug the XA2 into my cable modem and it take it from there? I really stink at computer type stuff. When my player gets to me should I...
They say that time changes everything (or at least, has the power to change everything), and that is especially true where movies are concerned. Often a film is not well received during it's initial run, but gain a new life with subsequent releases (or home video), where time has allowed it to...
Picked it up yesterday and watched it later that night.
PQ was great AQ too, everyone was asleep so I can't say much about the envelopment of the action scenes, but dialog was smooth and crisp all the way through.
Not to mention this is a suprisingly good movie, and not just another action...
Nine Inch Nails Live - Beside You in Time on HD-DVD 2/27/07
I had a Best Buy gift card and decided to get this online. They have an online only price of $16.99 shipped free. No out of pocket money from me. :) This gets 5 stars for both PQ as well as AQ. Online Review.
This unit is about 8 months old and in perfect condition. Includes original box, manual and remote. If you are looking to get into HD-DVD, this is a great deal.
PM me if you are interested.
I also have an Audio Control Maestro M2 Pre-Pro and an Earthquake Cinenova Grande 5 Amp...
Re: Toshiba HD-A2 HD-DVD Player
Although my BenQ 6100 projector is 1080i capable, I have to use a component to VGA cable for my Dish Network HD reciever. Does anyone know if the HD-XA2 upconverts thru component or thru HDMI only?
So, what are your favorites and why? For me, King Kong and The Hulk on HD-DVD are eye candy to the n'th degree and entertaining as well, but ever since I got my first title on HD-DVD, which was Serenity, I don't think I've seen anything better for an all around great hi-def transfer plus a...
