    Hi Def TV? What model would that be then?

    A great DVD (am assuming your DVD player is multi-region?) to test out the pq and sound is R1 Too Fast Too Furious Tricked Out Edition.

    This has an excellent transfer and DTS as well as DD 5.1 sound, think you can pick it up quite cheaply.

    Don't know what sound system you have but if it's decent then the sound of those cars at full-tilt will definitely upset your neigbours...

    EDIT: Forgot to add, if your TV has the required inouts then use component leads and set the DVD to P. Scan to get the best out of it.

    Hi Kismet,

    Thanks for that. I'll see if I can give it a go.

    My equipment is

    SAMSUNG SP42Q2HLX/XEU
    Pioneer 575
    Pioneer 814 amp

    And I have it connected via component from DVD to TV and digital optical from DVD to amp. What I have watched so far has been stunning. I was just wondering if there was anything to buuy that could really show of the picture quality. The DVD player supports WMA (whatever that is!) ;)

    As Conn sugests, WMA = best avoided, especially on large screens!

    TFATF will show off the capabilities of your system, no doubt about that. The colours of the cars are vibrant and solid, as is the L.A. backdrop.

    As you have a seperate amp then you're in for a treat audio wise too, dts seems to have an edge of dd on this disc but both are good.

    Enjoy ...
