The Truman Show also looked to be in HD last night.

If a movie or concert video or a TV show isn't on blu ray it darn well should be.

Ou8thisSN,

I noticed that you haven't updated the master list in the first message since 9-9-05. Have you been busy? Are you still interested in maintaining the list?

I think the list is worthwhile, and I'd be willing to take over (start a new thread) if you were no longer interested or able.

Thanks very much for all you've done.

The Truman Show was definately not in HD. I was comparing it back and forth between DirecTV SD feed and Comcast HD feed and it was definately stretched.

Tom

The Truman Show I watched on TNT HD was stretched. Don't know what you were watching. But I compared it to SD feed and there was no additional content on the left or right of the screen.

I did some testing last night on my DVHS recording of this film. My BenQ 8700+ DLP front projector allows one to select 4:3 aspect ratio even for HD signals. I switched to the 4:3 aspect ratio and it was clear that all people, objects etc. were squeezed big time. If this was a stretched presentation then the picture would look normal. Jim Carrey's shoulders look about the width of a 8 year old female gymnast and his head looked like he keeps it in a vice. Commercials looked normal in the 4:3 frame and clearly stretched in HD 16:9. Just compare the look of the obviously stretched commercials to the film. The film does not look at all like the commercials. Also the detail is far beyond any upconverted dvd, satellite etc. Fibers in his sweater are clearly visible and print on his insurance forms and the magazine he looks at at his desk are sharp as a tack. No dvd or sd sattelte whether upcoverted or not can accomplish this or even come close on my size screen. I have over 200 dvds and over 200 HD tapes including D-Theater and there is no contest which is which played on my 92" screen. My copy of The Truman Show recorded on Saturday is HD no doubt about it.


I use Dish Network and wonder if Direct TV's compression or a smaller video display is the reason one could possibly think this is not HD? Also, I sit 10' away fom my 45x80 inch screen and difference in picture quality is big. Maybe others sit furher back than 1.5 screen widths away.

I mean no disrespect to others opinions I am just stating my opinion/findings.

I do not believe that D* offers TNT-HD. I have TNT-HD via my HD cable.

hmm Tom thats a good way of testing, i will be sure to do that when i go home. But yeah i do agree that TNT does buther a lot of their HD releases where it takes a while to determine if its HD or a good SD convert.

I sure wish TNT would either get rid of their logo on the bottom right of the screen, lighten it, or do what HDNET does and have it just show it every once in a while. Anyone else find it distracting when watching a movie?

The Wedding Singer that played this past weekend appeared to be in HD as well as The Mask. Both looked very nice, much better than the dvd's. Boy, that Cameron Diaz sure looks hot in that movie.

But of course we aren't going to see Amanda Peet in her birthday suit on CBS or TNT

Quick question guys ... does TNT-HD inject commercials between these HD movies ? Do they edit these movies to fit their programming schedule ? Thanks.

TNT HD is run exactly like TNT SD. Only difference is that some stuff is in HD and some is SD upconverts.

MOVIES THAT APPEAR STRETCHED:

Sugar and Spice - The center of the screen looked good but the sides seemed stretched.

Crazy/Beautiful - Looked very stretched, grainy, and just overall horrible. I think The WB showed this in HD a couple months ago so a HD copy should be available somewhere.

Trapped - Looked decent but also stretched.

The Day My Parents Ran Away - Stretchovision


SHOWS THAT APPEAR STRETCHED:

Angel - Stretchovision

NYPD Blue - Stretchovision

Charmed - Stretchovision

The Lost World - Stretchovision



I am very happy to finally have TNTHD but they really need to stop calling everything they air HD. Maybe I don't know the correct definition... but I thought that stretched material can never be considered HD. A great deal of there stuff looks like a first generation DVD that has lines going through the screen whenever there is movement. Oh well. Anything is better than the crappy PQ of the basic TNT.

People stopped watching because it sucked ass. Not because they didnt know the show was on. Now they are no longer watching the shows they liked because you constantly promote other crap.

This is a bit off topic, but I've never watched Alias. It seems to be pretty well thought of and when I was looking into getting Comcast's HD package I saw that TNTHD carries Alias... figured this would be a good time to check the show out...

So, questions are 1) is Alias in HD? What about the older seasons? and 2) I checked the upcoming TNT schedule and it looks like they will show the last couple episodes from season 4 later this month; any idea if they will loop around and start with season 1 episode 1 after that?

Thanks, sorry for being a bit off the main topic...

I too was planning on checking out Alias on TNT and was dissapointed when they started from season 4. I can't say for certain about Alias, but normally TNT shows their reruns pilot - series finale (or the most recent season finale if the show is still running) and then loops back to the Pilot.

I know that Alias is currently shown in HD. I can't, however, tell you if the older seasons are.
