The pilot did have poor color. See here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...24#post4668924

Boy, I can't believe they aired the pilot AGAIN.

I agree the color was horrible; too much contrast and the whites were way off. It definitly wasn't like that the first time. I did however have full 5.1 audio.

OT, but what would you calibrate? How many RPMs it's doing? It's a centrifuge, not a scale... I do have to say this is the worse medical/science fact content drama I've seen in a while.

Umm, are people actually watching the show, or do they need to do the 'for the Producer' thing and describe everything to the audience? 'Calibrating the Centrifuge' was just a cover. She was trying to find something to do to get away. Dr. House caught on, but, obviously some in the audience didn't. Sorry to be so harsh, but, that was actually a plot device, and not a medical 'device'.

Otherwise I must say I like the show. Laurie is very good, though I do enjoy the irony that he as to use an American accent, whereas Chase can use his own--he's Australian. And, with Massive Attack as the theme it's a winner.

Nothing changed between the first airing and this time -- it looked just as bad during the original run.

No audio problems noted here though. I'm monitoring with a Wohler 5.1 digital audio monitor, and all channels are operating.

Hmm, so it seems the colors were always like that. I wonder why I thought it looked fine the first time?

Ummm, do you actually ever read this forum? This is what people do here. No matter how entertaining or enjoyable we find a show, we find something we consider "technically inaccurate" and try to push our intelligence by pointing it out to everyone. Just like you're doing by explaining the "plot device" for us a full week after the show aired. Thanks, professor.

I guess I should have specified a bit.

Shure there was some music comming out of the other chanels, but it seemed to me that all dialog and sound effects came diredtly form the denter channel only

My *point* was that these shows have relevant consultants for their field (medical, in this case). They are there to be sure (supposedly) that stupid things don't happen.

They could have made up a far better 'plot device' that could have been even real! How about calibrating a piece of test equipment that actually needs it? That's all it would have taken.

The real thing is that people that know something, even a little, about the subject area shouldn't have their immersion in a show disrupted by nonsense. As another example, I already mentioned the monster bubbles in the IV last week as something that distracted totally, and could have been done correctly with no special steps needed. Heck, about everybody knows that putting air in an IV is 'not a good thing'.

Ah, well except for off-screen voices, the dialogue should always be coming out of the center channel. As for the sound effects, certainly they can place them wherever they like. I wasn't actually LISTENING in 5.1 though -- just watching meters and discretely monitoring different channels -- and just wanted to confirm that there was *something* being sent to all channels. Apparently I misunderstood your original message -- sorry for the confusion!

I know that most dialog is out of the center channel, but they also pan across from time to time to open up the soundstage on this show. last night had EVERYTHING locked in the center only (save the music)

I thought House looked great last night. It seems like it has suddenly improved PQ-wise. Maybe Fox is getting the hang of this HD thing.

No to mention the plot was differnt than what people here complian about as being to predictable. One of the best so far!

Love the new show House. Become part of my must see lineup. My wife, who's an RN, says it's corny and farfetched.

Ahh see thats the problem. Its not about the medicine. Its about how screwed up house is!
post #75 of 5037
Atleast it was in HD for you. In Chicago (via Comcast), we got the black bars.
post #76 of 5037
Chicago[via Comcast]was definitely messed up last night.

Best House quote of the season so far:

This is how medicine evolved. Patients sometimes get better. You have no idea why, but unless you give a reason, they won't pay you.

Did anybody notice if there's a full moon?

Taht ones good, but I still like the illegal dumoing qoute about the mp3 player!
post #79 of 5037
I'm going to have to go with this one, "Like I always say, there's no 'I' in team. There's a 'me', though, if you jumble it up."

I've got to say, that was the best episode I've seen yet.

EDIT: Fixed corrupted characters.

Is it just me, or are the last two posts virtually unreadable?

Yes, the are. The first had spelling so bad I couldn't make sense of it. The second one looks like it was corrupted some how.

"Taht ones good, but I still like the illegal dumoing qoute about the mp3 player!"


"I'm going to have to go with this one, “Like I always say, there’s no ‘I’ in team. There’s a ‘me,’ though, if you jumble it up.
post #83 of 5037
Corrupted? That my friend, is proper spelling.

I'm not too sure what Nakedeye's story is though!

If you set View/Encoding to UTF-8, you will be able to read Symbios' posts.
post #86 of 5037
does anyone else have trouble following the show? I like that the show doesn't stop to explain most things to the lay audience (though they found it necessary to say ALS=Lou Gherig (sp?) disease), but so much of the details fly over my head I'm having trouble following the arc of the show. For ex, on last ep. I got that they found some kind of growth/obstruction preventing the guy from walking, but if somebody held a gun to my head, I couldn't say how they got there from the beginning.

So, because Symbios is doing something differently than every other poster on this forum, we all need to change our settings? I'll pass.

Good lord, it actually is corrupted! Sorry guys, I thought you were complaining about all of the quote marks. I'm using Internet Explorer right now, and now I see what you're talking about, I have no clue why Firefox is doing that.

Edit:

Wow, I've been looking at a few of my other posts on the board, and most of them are corrupted. No one (except Keenan) has ever said anything about it, that's like letting someone walk around with a huge piece of food stuck between their teeth!

Glad I could offer a little tough love.
