bravo! ABC is learning rather quickly. this movie looks sharp, detailed, and pristine. preserving OAR is just icing on the cake.

Yes, I like the image quality.


I'm very surprised the AVS AR police haven't complemented ABC on their fine theatrical OAR efforts, recently.

The 5.1 sound track was off balance in Seattle. Komo had the center channel coming from the left surround, and never did get it right throughout the movie. Very distracting. Picture was great.


Anyone else in Seattle notice this? I'm using Dish 6000 with Denon 3801 set to 6.1 mode (Dolby Digital).

'Mission Impossible' and now 'A Time To Kill' in OAR. Once again, ABC shows everyone how it should be done. Maybe HBO should take note!

I got on here this morning to see if anyone else in Seattle had this problem too. Glad to see it wasn't just me. I actually rearranged my mains after checking all me center connections just to try and get something that sounded more realistic.

All I can say is "WOW!" the PQ was amazing during this presentation, even after the 720p to 1080i upconvert.


What's gotten into those guys over at ABC, and how do we spread it around?!


Here's to more HQ HD!!!


(Now if they'd only do some MNF....)

I turned it on just to see how it looked, and I expected to be disappointed. To my surprise it looked outstanding! OAR is a must in home theater. Even the ABC logo was small and washed out.


I think the sound in LA was Prologic, not 5.1 I'll double check my receiver settings when I get home. Does anyone know for sure?


The blinds in the court room were shimmering on my system too, and I'm running 720p I don't remember if the DVD (through HTPC) had that problem.


If ABC keeps this up I may be able to tolerate commercials!


I usually find that network HDTV isn't anywhere near as good as DVD for several reasons: transfer quality, sound quality, dropouts due to poor reception, commercials, and pan & scam.


After this My HTPC picture looks soft. Sound was good, but I think HTPC is better.


GREAT JOB ABC!!


I hope Episode I looks this good.

Sorry if this is the dumbest question, but what is OAR?

Arnarkon,

Be sure to see page 2 of Jafo's link. You'll see why I hate so called "full screen" movies. Even sit-coms when watched in standard definition (SDTV) seem croped after watching them in HD for a whole season now. It's nice to see more of the set around the characters.
