It's dubbed? Ugh...then I'll have to order the BD, I guess.

Both "Dragon Tatoo" and "Fire" are in Swedish with hard Engish subtitles when I play them. The "audio and subtitles" menu claims that "Fire" is in English, but it lies.

Well that's good, I've seen them both already on BD but was curious about the Netflix version.

Two new ones out today (that were in my queue).

Insomnia (2002)
Chaos Theory (2007)

Also just scrolling through new releases, I noticed:
Wild Wild West (1999)

Law & Order SVU is HD/5.1 starting with Season 8. Can't post links since I would need to alter my DNS on this computer to access the site...

Added. I know that I saw them before, yet somehow failed to put them in--oh well . Thanks!

I broke strict alphabetical ordering to put "The Eleventh Year" at the end .

Watched The River Wild tonight. Looked great and sounded decent enough. Nice rapids in the rears, but they were a bit scattered and cut off once in a while. Overall a fun watch, especially for those who enjoy rafting.

I wish there was a way to show the info of a movie like you can with Tivo during PS3 playback. Now all you get is the level of definition and sometimes the minutes - however most of the time it's a garbled. You can't even see the amount of time you have left in a movie without pausing and playing since the time bar won't come up any other way (and as previously stated, the other timer rarely works). I'd like to be able to see the year, title, and description of a movie on a whim while i'm watching.

Low/SD
Medium/SD
High/SD
Low/HD
Medium/HD
High/HD
XHigh/HD

"/SD" means 480p res and "/HD" means that the resolution is a minimum of 720p; the "Low", "Medium", "High" and "XHigh" just roughly indicate which encoding at that. We assume that 1080p is "XHigh", but we know that indicator will appear for 720p encodings as well so it can't be used to tell when you're getting 1080p.

That smooth, seamless transition from higher to lower bit rate encodings and vice versa as available bandwidth on your connection fluctuates is very new technology and something only recently added. Previously the player would pause and re-buffer if the bandwidth dropped and would not switch back to a higher bit rate, higher PQ encoding when bandwidth increased.

I not sure if any of the other platforms can display that. I know that the PS3, Xbox and PC players cannot. They no doubt implemented it for TiVo because TiVo users expect to be able to do that while watching live and recorded television.

As you say, it's only something that you'd do on a whim; you know what you're watching in the Netflix player because you explicitly asked to watch it (true of a TiVo recording as well, but it's there for UI consistency). If you need the details you can always pop out and look at them and restart the stream where you left off.

yeah, true. Sometimes I just hit play on a new episode of something I haven't seen and then forget what the title of the ep is or the description, and it'd be nice to know. Or I'll wonder what year it came out. Or my wife will walk in and sit down and ask what I'm watching or what it's about, and it's much easier just to hit a button and show her all the info. It's not that important, but would be nice.

Yeah, with my HDMI captures it was easy to step through and see on what frame the resolution leap takes place. You won't see 1080p without X-High, but X-High doesn't necessarily mean you're getting 1080p.

X-High = 1080p or 720p
High and below = 720p and below

I went through the 123 Steamy Romantic Dramas and 178 Romantic Independent Dramas lists and found a few you don't have.

Also two randoms I came across:
Corrections: Amadeus is 1984, not 74. The Red Riding Trilogy was a 2009 release (the other years are part of the titles). And Matrix Revolutions was removed on Jan 1.

Thanks. Heat is now 5.1 even though I could swear it wasn't yesterday. Beetlejuice was removed at some point.

The compression isn't too friendly to Oz.

Curious if you noticed the difference in editing between the DVD/Bluray and the streaming version. The rape scene was far less graphic and different angle. I didn't watch it all on streaming but I noticed there were differences. Immediately thought of Blockbuster when they would edit/clean up their copies of certain movies. :-(


So I said, "Hey! Lama! How 'bout a little something, ya know, for the effort?"

Setup:
Yamaha RX-Z7
Polk Monitor 70s, CS2. FXiA6s, Monitor 30s
Samsung UN55C6800

I was kind of wondering what he was talking about myself . I watched Dragon Tatoo recently (paid to rent it from Vudu to see it in HD). It is not in the list, though Played with Fire is.

Are you sure about that? Are you sure its not a lossy compression level? Can you never get XHigh on a TV series originally shot in 720p?

Also, why do you say 5.1 audio is only available for the PS3?

because 5.1 audio is only available on the PS3 (currently, at least)

Am I sure about what, specifically? I'm completely certain about the main points that you quoted: X-High is seen when you're playing titles which are known not to have 1080p encodings and when you're playing titles which (I believe) have 1080p encodings. I'm also certain that the PS3 is now using adaptive bit rate streaming tech (aka "smooth streaming"). All of the old players which don't have ABR streaming will pause for varying amounts of time when bit rate on your connection drops below the speed required for the currently selected encoding to refill their buffers with a lower bit rate encoding. Also, the non-ABR streaming players all take 10+ seconds to start up an HD encoding (if your connection has the required bandwidth); playback of a stream on the PS3 generally starts in 3 seconds after you "press PLAY".

When I talk about "available bandwidth" I mean the bandwidth currently available on your connection to Netflix' servers, which may be only a fraction of the your rated network service speed and which can fluctuate as conditions along the path to the server change.

As for 1080p and 5.1 surround only being available on the PS3, see this bit posted on Netflix' blog back in October:
Quote:
There is even more good news for PS3 owners: starting today you’ll be able to instantly watch some movies and TV shows in 1080p high definition with Dolby 5.1 channel surround sound.
Only the PS3 has encodings with digital surround sound; a theory held by myself and others is that those streams with 5.1 also have 1080p encodings.

I was honestly hoping, Michael, that the thread would stay clean to it's intent .. not your fault ..

Why digress into PQ and what not .. ??
