This should please the Criterion Collection crowd.

I don't know if anyone posted this yet, but EzDVD an Australlian site is having a 2 for $50 sale on Universal HD DVDs. Shipping to the States would be $9 for two movies. After factoring the exchange rate, the total shipped price is 2 for $48 US.

BR Exclusive in the States for Sale
------------------------------
Rambo 1, 2, 3
The Holiday
Total Recall

Non Combos
--------------
Children Of Men
Smokin' Aces
American Werewolf In London
Miami Vice

$24 a disc is better than you would pay here.

Does anybody have ghost rider yet. I just ordred a bit from amazon.fr but passed on ghost rider. The items have already been shiped so ill wait till I get those before I order more as I've never used amazon.fr before. Used co.uk many times so id guess about the same amount of shiping time

I ordered my copy on the 6th of September but it has yet to ship. I've not been notified of any delays, but Amazon states "shipping within 14 days" or something to that effect. This usually means they don't have it in stock. I would agree with Tony from Xploited on this one, it seems to have been delayed.

They won't play region free PAL DVD either for some reason. Blu-Ray players have the same limitation.

Scanned my copy, thought the PQ was good, 1.5-1 on the Reference Scale. Not super sharp and plenty of film grain, but no obvious compression artifacts.

Pal didn't really interest me. Or is there something I don't know about pal. I thought it was a totally different screen display. In any event Pal doesn't really interest me. But if hd could be region free, I felt there might be some hope for sd dvd too. oh well.

With regards to the new HD formats v. PAL and NTSC, keep the following in mind:
American NTSC = 480i/60
European/Japanese PAL = 576i/50
HD DVD and BD = 1080p/24 i.e. 1920 vertical lines * 1080 horizontal lines at 24 frames per second.
The i (interlaced) and p (progressive) refer to which horizontal lines get refreshed (at the spedified refresh rate). With i, the even- and odd-numbered lines get refreshed alternately. With p, the entire screen gets refreshed each time.

So with regards to the HD formats, the incompatibilities of PAL, NTSC, Secam are a thing of the past.
In addition to 1080p, HD DVD is region free. This means that you can buy an HD DVD released in any country and play it with any HD DVD player.

SD DVD playback on HD DVD players, however, has the same restriction as normal DVD players do i.e. SD DVD region coding applies, and the US Toshibas (A2, A20 and XA2) will only play NTSC DVDs, not PAL.
The Toshibas for the European market (E1, EP10 and XE1) will play both PAL and NTSC (most DVD players sold in Europe can read both PAL and NTSC and the Euro Toshibas are no exception).

Thanks that was helpful. I was least informed on the whole pal ntsc issue. I don't think that I will be buying a new european toshiba in the near future however, but is is good to know.
