    As DVE will not be released on Blu-Ray, does anyone know of a similar product that's either available or in production please?

    That's a shame if there's nothing else similar coming out :( Anyone know why DVE isn't coming out on BR?

    I'd heard Joe Kane had worked closely with Microsoft in developing the Windows Media Video codec and, as we know, MS are one of the main backers of HD-DVD.

    Do you have a link for this please?

    I'd expect it to be less than £20. I'm definitely getting it.

    I wouldn't say that, my Avia SD DVD set up disc is easily my most used DVD.

    This release date was supposedly rescheduled to November 5th, but I can't find stock anywhere, nor notice of a slip.

    Did anyone manage to pick a copy up please?

    That's a good price ...... I see they've now increased it for new orders to £10.93.

    I love the release date they quote, 01 January 2020 !!!!

    EDIT:

    It seems the UK release may be 7th April. Here's the best few prices I could find;

    Excellent - let us know how you get on with it please as I plan to pick it up if Samsung can ever sort out the problem with 24Hz on their LCD tv's.

    Thanks for that Brian. Seems you're very pleased with it.

    Will definitely be picking it up once Samsung get their act together.

    Aelun, just picked up my copy off the shelf from a HMV high street store in the UK today. The colour filters are included. I doubt you can get a copy without them included as the face they are in the package is written in large text on the back of the case.

    Just calibrated my Panny TX32LXD + PS3 with it. The colour filters work a treat.

    What do you think the finished results? I saw this in Zavvi at lunchtime and wondered if it was worth picking up.
