    'Our' High Def Disc Players FAQ needs some work and more content.

    If you have something worth adding, including links to any useful third party technical articles, or even have a relevant question that you feel would be useful have an answer to then please post here.

    Thanks

    Blu-ray Profile 1.1 Player comparison here

    Will have a profile 2.0 one soon, although it's rather limited right now. :)

    A lot of people seem to think that there's something wrong with Blu-ray/HD-DVD because the image doesn't fill the screen. Maybe you could have an FAQ about "Why does my HD disc still have black bars at the top & bottom?" and then attempt to explain that that's how the director wanted it and they are actually seeing more than if the edges were chopped off to fill the 16:9 frame and it's more than likely that the DVD will have the same bars and if it's shown on Sky and is not a "fault" of new Hi-def discs

    I'm guessing that smile is a bump?

    shall I just re-write my 2 posts above it as nothing's been altered and it still says the PS3 is approaching

    Kinda implies it doesn't output BRs at SD/ED, maybe adjust the question to "HD resolutions?" or add 480i etc. to the answer maybe?

    Also missing 1080p/50. In fact you could probably just change it to "every resolution" (perhaps not 576p?).
