    Hey,

    I have a decent home cinema setup (40" Toshiba RP TV, Toshiba DVD, Yamaha DSP620 Amp etc etc .. ) Im sure there are a lot of you out with similar, or Im sure much better setups. On numerous occassions I have people round and they like to be taken through a demo of the system. Being a real film fan I enjoy doing this but it does get a tad repetitive having to load and unload the dvds. So I was wondering is there already, or plans to release a dvd which contains some of the best cut scenese for many films. Im sure like me many of you use the usual scenes to demo your systems ;

    start of swordfish
    beach scene of Saving Private Ryan
    Gladiator (DTS) opening battle
    Lobby scene from the Matrix
    etc etc ...

    So am I wishing for too much or can we expect something along these lines .. perhaps the easiest thing to do would be to burn these to my own dvd ?

    cheers,

    Nige

    buy ultimate dvd platinum, it tests your system, and includes bits of certain movies that give out great poicture, dts sound and over all good quality, although it is mainly a disc 4 seting up your system it is quite good 4 demonstrating the effectivness of your setup.

    Yep, Oz.

    I got it from EzyDVD total price including shipping was $33 (Aus) which is about £12 at that price and the speed of service its barely even worth checking play and places like that, but its up to you.

    its called the Ultimate Dvd Platinum - Demo Disc (552) if you want to check it out.

    Hope that helps.
