Yeah I got it too, it was ripped from SkyHD, they use h264 for their movies. I encoded it to a 1080 VC1 wmv, so I can burn it and watch it on my 360. It looks amazing.

Main display is a Sony KDS-R70XBR2. 70" LCoS. Hey Lee I see you're in Temecula. If you want a demo of HD DVD versus BD I can give you one. You'll leave and go buy an HD DVD player. My 70"er really brings out BD's inferiority.

I would really like to see the difference in the two, I have read that Blu Ray has less issues than HD DVD or was it the other way round, anyway I'm looking to get one of these players pretty soon

47 HD DVD's, two players, no issues. BD has a lot of issues with varying quality due to the lack of standards. Studios are allowed to release whatever garbage they want in whatever encode and sound. HD DVD has mandatory standards, so you get better overall quality per release.

Check out the releases on each format.

This is the TV I have.

JVC HD-52G787



It is a 720p 52" LCoS rear projection. My "home theater" components:

- Xbox 360 w/ component cables
- HD-DVD addon for Xbox360
- Oppo 971 DVD player with upconverting, region free, plays NTSC & PAL, DVD-Audio, and really good scaler/de-interlacer
- Logitech Z-5500 audio system
- Xbox 1 w/ component cables
- PS2 w/ component cables
- Motorola DCT6412 HD DVR

I plan to upgrade next year to either the 61" or 70" JVC 1080p model or possibly one of those Sony 1080p projectors that costs like $5000.

DENON AVR-4802
