I just tried the remastered original Terminator, and apparently it has not been resynched. This isn't an obscure title and this remastered version has been out for at least 2 years. Anyone else tried this title?

Is this the one that just came out? Because it isn't supposed to be a change vs the previous remaster, but maybe it is. I just got it and I will try it and the pre-remaster one if I can find it.

Agreed though this one has been widely available for a long time so hopefully a resynch isn't necessary.

On that note, I despise the new website. You used to be able to export to a file that was spreadsheet friendly. And there is no good way to look at recent releases any more. And besides that the change seems to have broken the unofficial D-BOX iOS app, which was just rewritten to work under iOS 7 in the past year. The database in that app hasn't updated in over 6 months.

Agreed on the new site. Looking for titles is a pain. It's just not working for me.

I see they got out the 1st Mad Max. Glad they came through for you on that. Thinking about asking for the Superman Movies (At least 1 & 2 (Donner Cut).

The one that just came out, which should be the same as the remaster you mention, does not synch. Not sure I have a big enough batch of re-syncs to bother to send them in yet--in fact I just checked, I may only have one other one.

Besides that it is a new release and the price I paid on Amazon is probably what it would cost to send it to Quebec, and since they don't have to send anything back to me, D-BOX should just buy it.

I just e-mailed them. I really want to have a Terminator movie marathon before the new one and don't want to have to show the old one for D-BOX.

You could always buy an HEMC to make sync worries go away

The HEMC does not feel like a complete product to me. I lose more than I am willing to give up for just the ability to sync everytime. Then tack on the price of admission and I really don't want to pull the trigger.

I want to do a Terminator marathon too. The Hemc is too rich for my blood right now. Let us know if you hear anything, Turls.

Was it coded in theaters? I have it as well but will wait if it will be pushed out next Friday like most new releases.

They responded right away and came back a couple days later and said they didn't have access to that locally and want me to send it in so they are sure to code the correct one.

I don't think I have enough re-synchs right now to send in to be worth it, and I'm hesitant to send in requests because they keep them longer and its a crap-shoot if they will do them.

Its been a while since anybody compiled a re-synch list here, but the only other one in my collection that I am pretty sure I am waiting on is Emperor's New Groove Blu-ray.

I have a few that I am working on building up. I wish we were closer and we could bundled them. It would also be nice if they had a US location we could send these. I am sure some of there coders are here, maybe?

Weird, Mad Max 2 and 3 were removed from the Upcoming Codes list, but they weren't released this week according to the New Codes website. Gonna have to install the update to see if this was just a website omission...

Just finished Mad Max Fury Road on D-Box and all I can say is WOW... Action was non stop and D-Box just made it better. Cannot wait for this to come to BluRay as I've never found the D-Box seats in a Theater to be all that comfortable, wish they would recline some...

The unofficial iOS D-BOX app that has worked and not worked various times since it was released is working again after I exchanged e-mails with the developer. Pretty sure the last break coincided with when they made the website changes and it looks like he's designed around future changes causing an issue (no guarantee though). It was nice before but with the poor state of the D-BOX website it should be even more valuable going forward. Might want to check it out.

Hope they don't pull a "Hurt Locker" and take a long time to release codes, if ever.

Road Warrior and Thunderdome codes just got released today. Great success!

I drove quite some distance yesterday to see Fury Road in D-Box. It was completely worth it. I wish my home seats could get that same degree of side-to-side sway.

I have to agree. Mad Max: Fury Road was one of my favorite, if not the best, D-Box experience to date! I suppose it doesn't hurt that the film was incredible.
