I think it may depend upon your printer (or printing software), but the psd image is 3171 X 1762 pixels at 300dpi, which produces an image that is 10.577 X 5.87 inches.

Should print fine automatically on 8.5 X 11 paper.

I just printed the jpeg as well and using windows photo viewer it defaults to "fit picture frame", but as long as I uncheck that box, it prints great that way too.

Here's what it looks like on an 8.5 X 11 piece of paper, so if your print preview looks like this, you should be good to go.

Thanks for all the hard work! I didn't mean to come off like a complainer.

Still waiting on my 3 BD-R to arrive so I put the original folder on a external HD and my WD TV Live detect all the clips, but for some reason, when trying to play, the only thing coming out of it is the Pearl Harbour clip. Can't play anything else but that clip?? Weird....

It could be me but I could still t get the jpeg without the "1" on the spine to work. Keeps coming up very low res - like trying to enlarge a thumbnail

Grab a torrent client. Download the torrent file to your local machine. Open the torrent file with the torrent client. Begin the download. Wait 3-6 days, you'll have the file.

Thanks. I haven't used a torrent client in a year or so. I just installed Utorrent and "Save target as" then opened the file. Working great.

Also, I just wanted to say Thank You to scubasteve2365. You have gone above and beyond.

Maybe when I wake up tomorrow, it will be done.

Still haven't pulled the trigger on the B-Ray burner... Still considering the HT PC and starting from scratch... hmmmmm... Maybe need to go over to that forum and do some reading.

Man, that took longer than I thought it would...

finally got this to play on my computer. forgot that it was mentioned you need a drive emulator such as deamon and now i'm in business as far as playing on my computer goes. no such luck for streaming out to my home theater for now until i get a disc.

my issues is playback of pearl harbor under the LFE sub-section. it's a bunch of moving multi-colored boxes. you can see likenesses of planes and humans and what nots. but when i play the mt2s or whatever standalone, it plays fine. only when i play it "virtually" through deamon using the cyberlink powerdvd does it do this. to eliminate it being an issue with powerdvd i wanted to use the coral WINdvd but it keeps saying "media not supported". besides this issue, the rest of the image rocks!

I wasn't getting any audio playing the BDMV directly with Power DVD 10. So I switched over to VLC and it played fine.

Still haven't burned a disc yet, I'm having to move my burner to this machine. (Long story...) Hope to have it done by tonight.

We're still downloading here.

Thanks to everyone involved with the disc, cover art and seeding. Trying to find some small way I can contribute to the cause. I have the photoshop file and photoshop. If anyone would like some minor customizing of the case cover I'd be glad to do it for you. Just drop me a PM with requests. I'm no expert at it, but I can accomplish the simple stuff. I can send you a finished jpeg or pdf for printing.

First of all let me add to the kudos to Scubasteve for the great work and effort he has put into this. Also appreciate the effort being put in by those creating image covers, seeding, and contributing wherever possible.

I currently don't have a Blu Ray burner, but hope to get a disc copy soon. In the meanwhile I have started to download the torrent as Dave (dcPrilgrim)has onto a computer left behind by my son who's off to college. This way I can have the files on a hard drive and I can aid in seeding the project for a while also.

Stereodude, I'm pretty much a newbie to this stuff. Are you streaming with a computer and watching it this way? Are you streaming to a PS3 or another device?

I have a PS3 and if I can stream to it, that would be great. However, I did read it posted, I think it was Scuba, that they wern't sure if it would work. So I wasn't certain what exactly you are referring to? If possible please elaborate a bit, maybe a small guide if you will... I can connect the computer I am using to my system, so if that's what I need to use it is possible, just need some further info. TIA to you or anybodyelse who responds.

Again, nice job Scuba.

No, I'm playing it back directly on the PC using Arcsoft TMT3. It also works on my Windows 7 PC connected directly to my TV also using Arcsoft TMT3. I'm not streaming it to anything.

Not sure why. If you notice the pic in post #631 is the one without the "1"

Back to the compatibility list...

Does NOT work on LG BD-390. (says, "Check Disc") I really bought this in anticipation of a new theater with a new player in it anyway so not a big deal. Father-in-law has PS3, so I'll be checking it out on his machine this weekend just to make sure the disc works.

Here's my basic matching label to the cover.

I'm also uploading two jpg's: one with the number 1 and one without. The psd file is once again too large for me to upload, so if someone would like to post it let me know.

(if anyone has a printable blank BD disc they want to sell, let me know, please).

Down loaded 41.4 GB
0.0 kB/s (avg. 93.6 kB/s) not sure if the average includes the last 4 hours that it has been done.
Status: Seeding !!!

1.5 DSL package (generally test at 1.1-1.3) Several peak times when this dips.
Duration 5d 10h.

You would think that in that much time I could make a decision on a burner or HT PC but you would be WRONG...

Thanks Steve!!!

Man, that took longer than I thought it would...

RPhDrew - Come on...this is much easier than many of the decisions that you make in the build process. A good BR burner costs about $110. Grab one and put this decision to bed!

Surprised at the drop in seeders only seems to be about 50 left seeding. Come on guy's if you downloaded keep it seeding for a while.

So far between my 2 PC's I've seeded over 300Gb

PS3 slim
Sony BDP-S350
And even works on my fussy old Samsung BP-1400

Scuba - I'll say it again:
Excellent - Thank You!!

Stew I've got a blank 50GB BD-R for you since you took the time to do that disc image. PM me... I think we're about 10 minutes from each other (I'm at the border of Plano and Parker near South Fork) but I work in Addison during the week.

OK, here's a dumb question - does one extract 85 rar files to 85 seperate directories or can one extract all to a single directory? (I am playing from my htpc so don't plan to make an iso).
