And speaking of whisperings...........Tony was correct.

70" SXRD display (without the Qualia moniker) due out next November (they're hoping - but it WILL happen).

I finally remembered to ask the right person.

Congratualtions Tony, good call !

I haven't been around for a while, but Merry Christmas to all fellow Qualians. Does anyone have some 1920x1080 holiday images they are going to load up on their memory sticks for Christmas?

Watched "The Great Raid" last night. A very good war movie that tells a very real story. Not real intense on color, it kind of looked like movies that were made back in the 40's or 50's. I really liked the actual footage at the end. It made me feel very proud to be an American. It is worth watching the special feature on the DVD that shows how the actors actually went through intense boot camp so they could make the movie.

Dive deep, play with sharks.

So long and thanks for all the fish . . .

Have some nice avi files on my pc, some in HD. How do I view them on the 006. Computer is not in same room as Qualia but there is an ethernet outlet at the Qualia.

Does the SXRD use the exact same technology as the Qualia. Or are the SXRDs a hybrid improvement over Qualia?

QUALIANS W/MEMORY STICKS: Here's a very cool trick for your 006 while you are entertaining friends and families over the holidays! Take the two images that I linked to below, and put them in a folder together (with no other images) on your memory stick. Put it in your 006, set the Slideshow to "Repeat: On" and "Transition: Fade", and enjoy the "Merry Christmas" scene complete with falling snowflakes! It looks like an animation, and the colors are beautiful on our screens! I just made these for our own Christmas parties this season, and you are all free to use them as well. If you do, let me know - I hope you all enjoy them as much as we do!

If that was involving the Kabanatuan (? sp.) camp, my Filipino father-in-law was there as a fighting force and guide for the American's.

Did that come out in Widescreen ?

Quick & Dirty Answer: Qualia 006 vs. Sony XBR/SXRD = same technology in different implementations. Q006 has better optics, electronics, and screen. XBR has smaller SXRD chips, variable iris, and a (generally) less happy usergroup...

PM,

Yes it was about the historic rescue mission at the Cabanatuan Prison Camp by a newly formed Ranger unit. It was not in Widescreen, but it didn't matter as the story was so good. You and your family would be especially interested in the movie. The leader of the Filipino fighters was Capt. Juan Pajota, any relation?

Here is a link to a review:

So long and thanks for all the fish . . .

No relation, but Yup, that's IT .............he was there !
I remember him telling me something about it. He certainly wasn't a captain as I believe he was only about 18 years old at the time.

Neat thing is, he's coming to visit us over the holidays, so it should be a treat to watch it together, if it doesn't bring back bad memories, I'll have to check on that first before I do a bad-ie.

And yes, to any inquiring minds out there, my wife has taught me enough Tagalog, that I can even ask for directions in that language too !

PM,
He should be very proud of his contribution to the rescue As you watch the movie, you will understand the urgency of the rescue. And don't miss the footage during the credits, he might see himself.

Dive deep, play with sharks.

Geez, I never thought about it until Penton-Man triggered an idea:

Q: What do "Marathon Man" and "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" have in common?

A: Dentistry

One last thing; Merry Christmas & Happy QualiaDaze to all!

Anything special coming on in HD over the next few days? Looking forward to catching a few great flix and REALLY need a good comedy, so I'm looking forward to catching "The Producers" with Mrs. T and Mini-Tee. Elmo loves Mel Brooks, but it's awfully hard to sneak him into the average cinema...

brt3,
"Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" followed by "Johnson Family Vacation" are on HBO HD tomorrow night. Far from a comedy, but "The Silence of the Lambs" is on HDNM tonight.

Here is a stat to figure out - how many kids have asked Santa for a 006

Dive deep, play with sharks.

Depends on how well you think Anthony Hopkins can imitate a chipmunk during the Chianti spiel.

Now I thought when I clicked on the images I would see the traditional Christmas fire

Very nice though, should impress all your visitors.

You are either going to have to pipe the output from your PC to the Q via the traditional DVI/HDMI/component, or get yourself a DVD player that will play the avi file (I have the Oppo 971H for playing divx/xvid encoded material); I also have an HTPC connected to the Q but since getting the Oppo haven't really used it all that much...easier to burn the files to dvd and pop them into the Oppo.

A fire is a good idea - you could use the same fades to create a cool looking flicker!

I've been out of the HT world for a few months and just looked up the Oppo (hadn't heard of it before). I take it you like it?

Yes, it puts out unbelievable picture quality at such a low price...has a few minor issues, but at the price, it suits its purpose. There are a couple of threads on the Oppos, the Brain Dump/FAQ thread is very informative.

[EDIT: BTW, I guess I should mention that my main DVD player is the Denon 3910; I have only occasionally played commercial DVDs on the Oppo...in the very beginning and now only sometimes for the kids' DVDs ]

The Qualia will power up and display DIM SER in the center of the screen
Then press the Number 2 twelve times
Lamp Timer should appear below DIM SER with the
number of hours following it to the right
Turn the Qualia off to exit

Official Sony Protocol for resetting the Lamp Timer

Continue From the above
Press the Number 1
The menu display should now be at Lamp Timer Reset
Push the Number 3
Press Mute
Press Enter
The menu should display Write - EX in red at the top
Turn the Qualia off to exit
If at any time you feel you are in trouble or where you should not be
Turn the Qualia OFF
If you need assistance call the Qualia 800 number in the manual.
The Sony Qualia people are happy to assist or walk you through the procedure.

OMG...just after celebrating my 500th post on the 300th page...accepting congratulations from all of you...getting ready for the holiday weekend...and getting excited for the umr calibration in two weeks...

I suffer my first ever issue with my beloved Q006

I was watching this afternoon and all was fine. This evening I power it on and the green power light just keeps flashing...there is no picture, but the bulb has warmed up because I do see black (lit). There is audio through my component system. I try to switch to DVD...still no picture. OMG.

I power down and wait a few minutes. Same thing. However, after several minutes (abnormally long), I do get a picture, bright and clear. However, the Video 6 label stays at the top left of the screen. ??? I try hitting display, and it gives me more info (time, etc.), that disappears, but the Video 6 label stays ???

I try switching inputs. Video 7 comes up, but the source from Video 6 stays on the screen (satellite). I cycle through all my video inputs and the labels change, but the source (satellite) stays the same. ???

Probably unrelated, but I did enter the service menu yesterday to check the hours. Followed all directions and the Q006 worked fine last night, then again today. I also viewed the memory stick pictures of Merry Christmas, posted above. No issues after that as well.

Looks like a service call may be needed
