There is a marked difference, the worst one I ever heard I thing was Futurama and MST3K The Movie's whose PAL speed up can tak quite a bit of getting used to if your more used to watching the NTSC counterparts.

Futurama sped up must look so bad it must be funny!

I'm use to watching NTSC R1 DVDs, so it's going to take a long time to get use to.

I think about 90% of the DVD's I own are R1 and alot of it has to do with more extras, sharper image, original mono etc.

Not only that but the music is different with the speed-up. It's really frustrating for me, and I'm going to be getting that Region free DVD player for my birthday!

dont be. I think its ridiculous that we have to now spend more cash on another dvd player just for more memory.

I thought dvd was the vhs of the future?

"Future" meaning: throughout the rest of fucking history!


why the hell do I have to spend hard earned cash on "dvd player 2.0" (basically) just so I can watch films I already have?

Now you listen to me you money grubbing, mother fucking, fairy buisness men... you have TWO options

you release the Dollars SPs on regular dvd and Blue ray

OR

you can have the sight of my middle finger in close vinicity of your faces!

Ya Gawd Damn Pricks! Eat shite and die!

Hah hah, my sentiments exactly Firecracker! Grin You get a cookie!

At least there's a significant difference between VHS and DVD.  I don't see why I would need a BluRay either.  That makes a dinosaur, so be it. Tongue

Hi Mcbain, I'l try some answers with your questions

a) Yes you will need to get a Blue-Ray DVD player

b) On my HD TV I have an HDMI point and lead going from my HDMI DVD player to the HD TV. I think you will need a DVI lead to get HD, but there must be a point on your HDTV to accept and HD source, such as HD cable or Satellite. hmm, have you checked the manuel for the TV and see what it says regarding outside HD Sources?

c) Yes PAL anamorphic does look better then NTSC anamorphic however it seems that most studio's produce their best PQ on NTSC releases. One thing to be wary of with PAL releases is PAL speedup which is where the sound has been sped up to match the new qualities for the PAL presentation (PAL has more visual lines then that of NTSC which equals in improved picture quality but also a shorter run length and the sound has to be adjusted accordingly)

I know C may sound a bit jumbled and I apologies but I hope I have gone some way in answering your questions. 
 
 

 
 
Hey Cigar Joe..

  Thanks for the info.  My HDTV has compenent video inputs (2 sets) the 3 color RCA inputs for progressive scan.  When a progressive DVD player with compenent outputs is plugged in the screen say's (480p).  My question is can a component (3 color cable) carry a 720p or 1080i coming from a Blue Ray player.  My manual does not say.  The Model Monitor I have is a Philips 30PWH850 HDTV CRT.

   One thing to check is...does a Blu-ray player have component video outs and DVI or just DVI.  The component video outs on DVD players today are for prgressive scan at 480p.


   There is a HD TV cable plug in on the back?  We do not use this HDTV for cable TV programs only DVD movies.  Just a thought if this is the only true HDTV input (for cable TV) will the Blu-ray player plug into this location somehow?

What is HDMI point and lead??

   I was aware of the 4% speedup which really bothers me and futhermore...why would they allow such a thing in the first place??

Cheers,

Eric

I never notice difference in ntsc and pal movies. except most pal movies are progressive. ntsc seem to favour 3:2 pulldown.

PAL DVDs have a speed-up. It's not noticable if it's a movie you haven't seen or seen in a long time. But if you're use to seeing a certain movie in NTSC and then seeing it sped-up on PAL, the difference is noticable...and quite annoying.

Hi Mcbain!

I guess I could let Joe have the credit for my post if you like  Grin

I believe a component should be able to handle the 720i and 1080i,  Smiley

Hi Leone,


  Sorry for the error....  Grin  Thank you for your help!  I hope you are right as I do not want to have to buy another HDTV to see the benifit (if there is any) to 720p or 1080i.

Cheers,

eric
