    Is there any high definition DVD's available?
    I have the Panasonic AE700 projector and the Pioneer DV S969AVi player and still think most of the DVD's I buy are still fairly poor quality even on HDMI.
    I use a 2.7mt wide screen and really want the best looking picture. :mad:

    The only decent DVD I know of is "Terminator 2 Extreme Edition" By Artisan.
    The source for this DVD is a High Definition source so the picture quality through DVi or HDMi is amazing.

    Much better than any DVD ive seen in the past.

    Well worth a purchase as its a good movie and you can use this DVD to test your set up picture quality.

    If you want true HD movies, wait for Blu Ray Disk or HD-DVD to come out.

    I know how you feel Murray. I'm the same. In fact, I recently got rid of my T2 Ultimate Edition and replaced it with the Extreme Edition because the picture quality is reportedly a lot better. I was very disappointed with the quality of T2:UE and can't understand how people used this as a demo disc. However there are some great quality transfers out there. Training Day is one that always springs to mind.

    There are 2 alternative formats available from Asia right now: EVD and HVD

    Do a search in Google for more info.

    I also know how you feel, i have a hcpc using ffdshow linked to a Z2 and some of the films are pretty poor. Some movies though do look very good, the Rock Criterion edition looks exceptional so does Bad Boys 2.

    Apparently a 2 disc set ( 1 disc SD & 1 disc HD) so you'll have to watch it twice for a real comparison :laugh:

    I was under the impression that to fully evaluate a disc that it had to be watched at least 12 times :D :D :D
