    When you receive them, please tell us what they are like (PQ, any issues with DRM).

    DVD ROM discs.

    If you select Language as English, it says "Sprachen: Deutsch" under "Produktinformation" with no mention of English. Selecting "Deutsch" as the Language changes this to "Sprachen: Deutsch | Englisch". Not sure why this is. www.amazon.de lists some of the titles there and does mention "Sprache: Deutsch, Englisch".

    Must resist....nooooo, can't resist any longer!

    Bulletproof Monk in High-def? Surely that's polishing a turd?

    Sorry :offtopic: I know.

    Seriously is the choice in high-def movies that bad?

    Yes, the WMVHD selection is pretty grim, at present.
    At least these are movies, and not IMAX stuff. :boring: :boring:

    has anyone tried playing one of these disks using windows 98? I have played the IMAX wmvhd disks fine using it but i'm having trouble with tomb raider. Every time i try to play it, it gives an error of not being able to read dvd-rom. Was just hoping someone has some experience of this. I'm not sure if i have a faulty disk or if I need to do something else to get it to work.

    Any input would be appreciated

    I do not own any yet, but this thread on the AVS Forum contains some good information on the German WMV HD DVD range.

    The discs were delivered by a courier and required a signature.
    That's probably the reason for the high delivery costs.

    ...not too bad for a courier. Perhaps a multi-buy can be organised on here?

    I ordered the Imax ones and promptly went off and ordered the movies from highdef.de. All ship now and Imax ones here already, only to find the Linkplayer2 doesn;t actually support the discs yet :D haha, what a nightmare

    When you say 'good' do you mean good as in Magic of Flight trailer or good as in better than DVD. I don't particularly want any of the availble films but I do want some HD material if the picture is up to the standard of the MS trailers then I'm willing to order a couple of discs...

    I'm not a DVD reviewer, but I would say that these WMVHD movies are as good as some of the best DVDs I've seen, but not as good as some of the American HDTV and EURO 1080 clips. But, that could also be a result of the source material, who knows??

    I guess we will see all sorts of comparisons posted fairly soon........But for now, I'm just pleased that we are heading towards movies in HiDef.

    Regards
