    Kourosh :thumbsup:

    IMO it is well worth the hassel. HD is the way forward and a treat for the eye's. :eek:

    Pc's in home cinema set ups will become more popular as time goes on. Be a trend setter hook your pc and a reap the benifits.

    You should be able to get the picture to fit perfectly. Look at your settings :rolleyes: also use good media players such as Windvd 7 or Win Media player classic with fddshow. :thumbsup:

    Gladiator is not availible to buy as of yet but there are other sources. I have heard there is a 20 + gig version @ 1080i floating about.
    I have seen the 1080i 12 gig version and it is a treat :clap: :clap: :clap:


    :D

    There are 4 different superbit versions around - Japanese, UK, French and Australian.
    You're most likely to be able to find a UK one (prolly via ebay). Japanese one goes for the wrong side of £100 normally - all the others tend to be between £20-£40.
    Most people say dont bother as the normal edition of Gladiator is rather good - but its horses for courses really. There was a thread over at dvdtalk that had some picture comparisons.

    I've seen superbit, (what are you watching it on?) its lovely - but the original release is lovely anyway. i did a few A/B tests and while the picture was debatablely better (on a 42" panny) the sound (Denon) was better but not by huge leaps over the original - it just had more detail.

    Enjoy

    Theres no point in buying it if your not going to watch it. :D

    Buy 2 copies or invest in a shrink wrap machine ;)

    :D

    Also to get the whole picture to fit on the screen did you use pan and scan? With this you can increase/decrease the size of the picture and alter the height and width. Media Player Classic has this feature and it is acessed by the numeric keypad.

    :thumbsup:

    Cheers Gary I will try and hunt it down. The forums are a bit slow today, must be busy :confused:

    No DTS sound track :suicide: Thats no good, Gladiator has a brilliant DTS sound track why did they drop it. :confused:

    I wish DTS was used on everything :lease:

    :D

    Crazy to loose DTS, the opening scene in DTS is a treat for the ears. Cheers for hunting it down Gary :smashin:

    you have to remember that Dolby is part of the DVD spec so has to be included in some form (there was a R1 DTS edition of Jaws that only had a Dolby 2.0 track) i'll be keeping my R1 Gladiator anyway for the DTS.

    There's nothing wrong with the current R1 edition in DTS-ES, DD EX.
    I won't be buying the new one.
    I think the film is very over hyped.
    I would prefer to watch Spartacus or Ben Hur anytime. :smashin:
