New title added to HD DVD list.

Deadlands 2: Trapped --> released 3/26/2010

That doesn't happen very often these days.

Yes, it was.

These three unique titles were added recently to the list:

Deadlands 2: Trapped (in Other Studio's Movies)

Railway Story: China South Part 1 (in the import list under doc/other)
Railway Story: China South Part 2

I had assumed the last two never got released, since the release date was 3/26/08, over a month after the format war ended, and that no copies were known to exist until now. Anyway, there are 10 Railway Story titles instead of 8.

Also Railway Story: China Part 1 has been changed to Railway Story China North Part 1. The same goes for part 2.

Please, can anyone tell me where is the list of HD DVDs that have superior audio over their Blu-ray counterpart.

IE: The Any Bully and Happy Feet both feature TrueHD soundtracks on the HD DVD releases, but only Dolby Digital lossy on the Blu-rays.

Thanks!

You can also add Happy Feet and The Ant Bully to that list as well. (same criteria for audio)

Thanks for those, I didn't realize that Ant Bully was TrueHD either (not listed as such but is). I found two others that I had missed as well.

Yet another new HD DVD release and this time it is not a HD DVD-R.

http://forums.highdefdigest.com/hd-d...pre-order.html

File it under "Others", I guess.

Yeah, I noticed that. I'll add it once it gets released.

It's a 3x DVD not a real HD DVD. It should play. It should just make a lot of noise.
post #77 of 99
So even thos it says HD DVD on the disc and the Manufacturers site, it really isn't? My Toshiba says "NO DISC"

You might just have a bad disc, or it might be dirty--might have to do the boil or spray away method.

I heard these were initially released with the HD DVD label, but they were only DVDs with WMV HD files on them. Try popping it in your computer. I am guessing it will play.

Pirates, although it's on dvd rom DL media, is encoded in the HD DVD format (720p VC-1). It's definitely not a WMV and it plays fine on my XA2 (which it would not do if it were a WMV disc).

FYI-the info regarding this disc, that Jung is referring to was originally posted by a different member (not Jung), at another popular hi-def forum. Not sure if that person is the same person I dealt with over the last few weeks. But a package I paid for from another member never arrived after almost 2 months, and I've initiated a fraud investigation(I've gotten no other answers from original seller). No idea if this is the same seller that has now mysteriously appeared with the same titles and a different screen name, but just be very careful. If he's in Russia, you will not be able to send payments with some popular nad protected online payment methods, so excercise extra caution. Good luck, everyone.

Just to be clear, I'm not the guy trying to sell it. I live in PA. I saw the guy selling it and asked him for pics. He said he is in Moscow. Noway am I going to send money to a guy in Russia.
