There seem to be lots of questions as to just how good HD may be and what it will look like when compared against a good DVD transfer, for example. Don't know if this has been posted on this forum before, but the link below might give some idea of the difference. (Thanks due to the web page provider of course ! ) http://www.cornbread.org/FOTRCompare/index.html PS. I don't pretend to even start to understand the techy side as to how these images were created or even if what was done to them allows a fair comparison, so guess I will just have to take on it trust for now ! Interesting though !
