  1. just walked into to the city hmv and picked up my copy...
  2. can someone verify that the 300 BD from amazon is region free? It says unknown... Can someone confirm? I want to make sure i can play it on my PS3.... cheers...
  3. interesting... hey, nothing wrong with ping pong... i quite like it...
  4. Just looked at my audio settings and both the following was unticked: - Linear PCM 2 Ch 88.2KHz - Linear PCM 2 Ch 176.4KHz When I tried turning both on, it gave a message that states "If the device in use does not support the frequency selected, the speakers may become damaged." So when it says "the device", I am assuming that they are referring to the PS3? or are they talking about the AV or the speakers themselves? On the spec of my AV, it states it can handle Frequency Response from 10Hz - 100KHz at Direct Mode. Does that have any implications? And my Focal JMLab Sib&Co XL Front speakers can only handle Frequency response from 67Hz - 35KHz. Do they have any implications as well if I turn 88.2 or 176.4 on?
  5. sweet... didn't know the PS3 can play SA-CDs... might go to JB-HiFi tomorrow in the city and get a couple to try out... I didnt have to change the video display settings at all... just loaded the firmware and the first thing I did was load a wallpaper...
  6. From what I know about HDMI, for high res digital audio, it has a capacity of 192KHz (HDMI 1.3) max for all 8 channels. Standard CDs have a sampling frequency of 44.1, and High Res DVD-Audio discs have a max rate of 96KHz for all 6 channels. Anyone know SACD and DVD-A frequency? Can't seem to find any info on the specific 88.2 kHz or 176.4 kHz. But I did read somewhere its mainly for PCM and has something to do with DVD-Audio, which allows you to play at those frequencies... which would suggest better quality?
  7. I'm thinking of doing the same thing. You have a brand/model in mind? I have an Integra AV at the moment, but no HDMI. Can't wait to download the new firmware tonight... :ph34r:
  8. i think JB Hifi in the city had it for $99. I got mine from there a couple of weeks back. Good game. Still trying to finish it. I just bought The Darkness and Ninja Gaiden Sigma. Both must haves...
  9. Hello. Does anyone know if there are any good 1080p/24 Blu-Ray sources? I just found out that my InFocus SP5700 can do the following: Full NTSC, PAL, SECAM, 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p, 1035i, 1080i, 1080p/24 So I wanted to try it out. Thanks in advance. Cheers. :ph34r:
  10. wait for me... getting F1 for $75 at JB HiFi... playing it over the weekend or Thursday night...
  11. Weird. I had mine done (100") from Screen Technics with an 800 drop cause I have 10ft ceilings, and they did it without a hassle... my screen normally stays rolled, unless using my PJ... so the warping hasnt really annoyed me as I havent really noticed anything that drastic...
  12. Just saw on EzyDVD that both are coming out within the next couple of months... can someone verify? If it is... I might have to upgrade my PJ sooner than I thought...
  13. ahahahha, i'll drink to that...
  14. i had a similar issue with my bravia x, my solution was to change the hdmi cable... the hdmi cable that I originally got was not 1080p compatible... if you are also connected via an AVR, try connecting directly to your LCD. Also, if that doesnt work, double check that your samsung is 1080p... if it is... then its most likely the hdmi cable...
  15. Hey Andrew, do you think the display unit (whatever it may be) can contribute to the judder? Cause I havent seen any judder at all, even when it was playing at 60hz.
