I need to get a good demo DVD I can use to demo my setup to visitors :)

I'm using a 100" 4:3 screen and want somthing with DD 5.1 and DTS, 4:3 full screen and maybe even superbit.


I'm using a NEC HT1000 projector and a Pioneer DVD player.


Any suggestions ?


Thanks!

Well, I've never seen this before, but I hear Eagles Hell Freezes Over looks great on a huge 4x3 screen. It's also in DTS.


I want this DVD.

When I first started projecting with a 4:3 screen I always thought the IMAX movie "The Greatest Places" looked amazing. I haven't watched it in a very long time and my ability to judge PQ may be a bit more discerning now than it was so it would be helpful if someone else could second it, but my memory of it is very very good, and being IMAX it is a 4:3 presentation with a lot of great eye candy that looks natural on a big screen. If I get a chance I'll try to pull it out and give it a more recent opinion...

If by chance you like Santana, you may want to take a look at his SuperNatural Live (An Evening with Carlos Santana And Friends) disc.

It has both DD & dts

We have found that most of this video to be very good.

Most of the Pixar/Disney movies have 4:3 version. Some on the same disc or on a separate disc in the same package. Movies like Shrek and Ice Age do as well.

If you go with Super Speedway, make sure you get the original release (the 4:3 one). In the re-release they chopped top and bottom off to create a 16:9 anamorphic version. That would be worst of both worlds for 4:3 projection.

Singin in the Rain looks absolutely fab. 4:3 technicolor dreams.

The DTS remaster contains both the 16:9 and 4:3 versions of the movie on the same disc. The earlier 4:3-only disc did not have a DTS track.

Sounds like it's time to move to the wonderful world of wide-screen! :) If you have a 4:3 digital projector you should consider an ISCO II lens and a 16x9 screen at some point.


Don't get a pan & scan version of a movie just because it'll fill up your 4:3 screen. There are a number of good films and TV shows that were originally shot for the 1.33:1 ratio without being modified unnecessarily.
