Re: Best printer

Personally, I think a laser printer (toner rather than ink) is the best option. However, I work in a print shop, so it's easy for me to say that since I have easy access to nice production laser...

Re: Avengers (1960s UK TV)?

You can get them remastered on blu-ray in the UK. I think they're Region-B locked, though.

Re: Lost In Space: The Complete Classic Series - formatted for widescreen

The whole argument of making a 50-year-old television show widescreen "to appeal to a younger generation" is laughable in and of itself. Very few millennials would even give any show this old sa...

Re: Two Guys and A Girl - bootleg set?

Only problem there would be that, being in PAL, it would be affected by the episodes running 4% faster than they should (most noticeable in the audio), so that would be trading one set of problems...

Re: Buying DVD cases. Where can I buy them?

Yeah, about the biggest cases I seem to be able to find reasonably-priced are 10 to 12-disc cases. No "Epik-Pak" cases.

Re: Sony free regions

if you're talking DVD regions, you might be able to find a hack. If you're talking about blu-ray regions, you're probably out of luck. Almost all BR region-free solutions are a hardware modification,...

Re: Thor triple pack bluray?

Maybe some of the menus, etc. are in PAL rather than HD? I would also have included bonus features, but I don't think these UK Marvel releases with a single disc per movie have bonus features.

Re: Benny Hill

PAL to NTSC conversion doesn't cause a time loss when it comes to US television shows. The phenomenon of 4% "PAL Speedup" only applies when you convert 24fps film masters (US movies and US TV shows)...

Re: Best other region blu ray suggestions

it really depends on what you're into: foreign releases of US films, foreign films/TV not available in the US, US television not available in the US, etc.

Re: Buying DVD cases. Where can I buy them?

Re: Never buy a 2 disc DVD special edition DVD of a movie from a pawn shop

Exactly. I never buy secondhand sets (especially DVDs) that I cannot inspect. Not just for correct contents, but to also ensure the discs aren't all scratched up.

A reputable shop shouldn't mind...

Re: DVD's with no region code

Some discs are either mutlipe-regions (like 2+4) or "all", even though the outer packaging might only display a single region (like "2").

If the disc is a legitimate one (i.e. not a bootleg), I'm...

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

The UK set (at least) will be getting a disc exchange. Here's what they've had to say:

Thank you for contacting BBC DVD Support.

We will be offering replacements for the errors on Disc 3 (The...

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

The missing documentary is The Doctor Who Times, described as "an exploration of contemporary British television".

I'm assuming contemporary to 1974/75 (i.e. examining what else was on during the...

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

Here's some more bad news for buyers of the US set: there is a 40-minute documentary that is on the UK set but is NOT on the US set, because of music clearance issues.

It wasn't that the music was...

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

There has been reported an "out of phase" issue with episode 1 of "Sontaran Experiment", but not with anything else.



That is the only episode with reported problems. Probably explains the "low...

Re: How Do You Know If You Get a Bootleg DVD or Blu Ray? (serious answers please)

it could have also been a customer-opened (and returned) item, which would also mean re-shrinkwrapped.

This is not uncommon on Amazon (even "fulfilled-by" orders). Around the holidays, I ordered...

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

To be fair, none of the stories are out-of-print in the UK. That's just down to the decision-making at the BBC's US office. So, in your case, the only way of getting these back in-print Stateside is...

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

I'll also add this: if you're not sure whether you can play 50hz content (both HD and PAL), then you should not go for the UK set until you are absolutely sure.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

An in-the-know fellow on Roobarb's (Mr Sheen) says that the new "remastering" isn't all that much (just some dust-n-speckle cleanup, that's all), so if you're tempted to double-dip, don't do it based...

Re: Star Trek: The Next Generation, Silver Box Sets, Individual Seasons

I only have the blu-rays, so can only make an educated guess that the sets were probably released twice: the first release was probably the "fat" box, and they probably got a slimmed-down re-release,...
