    On dvd, you can get a range of movies from the IMAX series - the movies come as regular dvds with and extra dvd with the movies in WMV format. You should just make sure you're pc is powerful enough to play it. Click here to get started....


    You can also buy a (limited) range of movies in WMV format from Germany - Click Here for more details.... .

    There's a pretty expert group of members over on the high Definition TV forum, for more info.

    Yes, now you mention it TheRitz, I remember Terminator 2 was released as a special edition with a High Def transfer which could only be viewed through a PC running Windows media 9 or above so anyone with high spec PC's supplying the image to their projectors could get High Def right now !!!! Coowel !

    T2 needed an internet connection to validate the DRM licence, but you had to use a proxy server to make it think you were in the USA.

    Newer HD DVDs use on-disk DRM but can be a bit troublesome sometimes. There are some people who have recorded Hi Def material onto their tivo style devices in the US and made them available via newsgroups and the like. As far as I know, that's about the best way to get a pukka movie in the format other than the German site previously mentioned.

    I bought the T2 high def version from play but beware, it will not run on uk machines, it downloads a certificate to play the movie and if your isp is uk based it will not let you play the film. Apparently their are ways to get round this but ive never managed to get it to work. Just have a good search for hdtv and youll find plenty of films (ive got about 15 so far).

    All legitimate sources/links permitted (& welcome) but, as in Stuart's sticky thread, video (inc. hi-def) piracy is illegal.

    More & more hi-def is gradually emerging though :smashin: .

    Moved to HDTV forum.

    Have a look at http://www.high-def.de/ and click on "Shop". They do a few WM9 720p DVD-ROM's for playback from a PC. Most have English soundtracks and they will happily ship to the UK.

    Other than that alternative options have been pretty much covered by this thread. The only other viable legitimate source is D-VHS D-Theater.

    If none of those options appeal HD-DVD should launch in the USA in late 2005 and Blu-Ray in early 2006 plus Sky should be doing something on the HD front in 2006.
