So so. Not nearly as bad as Untouchables OAR but still not a great print.

Still, glad I have MAXHD. Whole lot of great old movies that are being taped the last couple months.

On my DVR, I always add 5 to 10 minutes before and after the scheduled start/stop times for recording movies on the premium channels.

For NASCAR, football and baseball, I add up to an hour at the end.

yeah, Chinatown looked much better than Untouchables, but was very very blurry in some shots, and the whole thing looked like it had edge enhancement.

some shots looked like they were from workprints.

in fact, Star Trek the Motion Picture also looked blurry. What's up with these Paramount catalog titles in HD?

Old64mb,

Next time, please mention the network. In the case above, it was Cinemax HD I presume.

Sorry, forgot about that requirement when my jaw dropped since it was in 5.1 and OAR...no need for Blu-ray on this one. MAX it was.

Yeah, Star Trek was really washed out- a sub-par transfer if not an upconvert. The opening credits for Chinatown were all scratchy but cleared up nicely for the rest of the movie.

Dead Calm was OAR on HBO this morning, though PQ was so-so.

EDIT: My mistake, this was a crop job, not OAR.

Fallen is showing in OAR and HD on StarzHD. 2.0 sound but sounds 5.1 when decoded through DPL II. I'll definitely be archiving this one.

I thought Dead Calm was Panavision, which means it wasnt OAR

I still have the LD of Dead Calm and it certainly is in a very wise scope-type aspct ratio (about 2.35:1). The version that I recorded of my DVR was in the 1.78 to 1.85 range.

Sorry folks, I checked my recording and you're absolutely right, it wasn't OAR. I don't know what I was watching yesterday morning.

No 5.1 on my DVR I'll still archive to DVHS though because it is a great movie and it is OAR.

Jon: there are others on this forum that are more knowledgeable about why studios release films to TV stations without 5.1 audio. It seems like it is hit or miss rather than some firm policy or it could be an oversight caused by lethargy.

i am pretty sure it was at least DD 5.1 in theaters, in 1997 most studio releases were.

LA CONFIDENTIAL is one of my all-time favorote movies, and i loved seeing it in HD, even if it wasn't a great HD transfer (looked okay but i think it was an old transfer, which would explain why it wasn't 5.1 audio)....
