Re: Many Players Need Firmware Update To Play Spider-Man 3 on Blu-ray
Avoid the chaos, and enjoy standard DVD's made to look like a blu-ray/hd disc.
I have seen (and am saving $$ for) the new DVDO iScan50 Pro. Even with the 400 Disc Sony 777ES changer as the source, the picture on a 63" Samsung plasma (yes, even a Samsung can be made to look good) was nothing less than stunning. All people who saw this image murmured "who needs hd discs when regular dvd's can look THIS good?". Switching to StarzHD on DirecTV didn't have a dramatic improvement on the image quality which really was the proof.
Of course, the benefits of fast loading, trailer skipping, and the availability of 10 years-worth of releases make the investment (of a video scaler) a much sounder proposition, right?
PS. I don't have affiliations with Anchor Bay, directly or indirectly......
