Looks like one of the best of the HD material I have. It will give the best D-Theater a run for the money.

If it was 5.1 it would be GREAT!

Are you talking about the HBO broadcast?


I was getting it 4x3 panned and scanned, and only pro-logic--the DVD is much better than what I saw on HBO...

Graham,


This is the HDTV transfer HBO used in 1999. Back in 1999, HBO used OAR and DD2.0. DD5.1 is only available on HDTV transfers first produced/shown this year.

Actually HBO has been sending DD 5.1 with some of its HD content for at least a couple of years now.


Their showing of "The Matrix" in May 2001 was DD 5.1, for example.

Thanks to ALL people who emailed and phoned to HBO about this issue !


I did not trust their (HBO) lame excuse "...oh my, we used wrong tape, we will change that". They used that 4x3 crap for several days, but now I see that it could possibly be the case...


Another good point - they did not "butcher" the transfer and kept it OAR ! HBO - WAY TO GO !

I did a brief press release search. I don't know why I thought HBO launched DD5.1 in January. According to press releases from Dolby and Time Warner, HBO HDTV's first ever Dolby Digital 5.1 broadcast was July 14, 2001 (Perfect Storm).


That said, I do have a HBO HDTV recording of The Matrix, and it is not DD5.1. It is DD2.0.

Thats not correct either bfd. HBO has been doing 5.1 on their HD channel (for select movies of course) since about July of 2000.
