HD 4 Me!

I went walking/running with my dog today and when I got back, what do I find on my door step!?? The Toshiba HD-A2 HD DVD player I ordered on Monday! Can you believe it. Amazon said it wouldn't come in until next Tuesday.

I'm so excited! Now I just have to borrow some HD movies to test it out. I might go out and buy one tomorrow. I'm hooking it up to my projector tonight.

I just love my projector. It's the best present I ever got. I wanted one so badly ever since Flipmax and I snuck in movies at the ENDG computer lab we used to work at in College. We'd load up the classroom projector on the huge screen. It was awesome. I never fell out of love with watching movies on a projector ever since.

I was thinking Batman Begins, that's a good HD starter right? OOOhhh. or The Mummy!

woot!!!

I have the xbox 360 hd dvd player and so far I've only seen one hd movie with it :P I totally agree with you all though, its an amazing experience. The picture is noticeably clearer and the sound is amazing... too bad you need to go out and buy a new receiver to really enjoy the audio. Dolby HD and so on.


I recommend King Kong. Lets hope lord of the rings is coming out soon!!!

I also wanted to add, if you want to check out upcoming hd dvd's the best place I've seen is dvdanswers.com. They always seem to have the latest info on upcoming titles and artwork.

They posted a full review of the matrix in hd. I might be picking that up.

I converted the den in my modest sized house to a projector room and I love it! I put black curtains over the windows, a heavy theatre-like curtain over the entry and made my own screen using 1" x 2" wood as a frame and fabric from JoAnns as the screen material (a shiny gray color seems to work the best). Recent additions include a Dolby Digital surround sound receiver and a sub woofer. I think watching movies in my theatre room is my next favorite thing to playing WoW. ;-) Currently I do not have an HD DVD player but I have certainly been tempted. My projector has an HD input so I really do want to try it. In case you did not already know, you can rent HD and BluRay DVDs from NetFlix.

Enjoy your projector!

Projector?!?!?! I think I need a projector and need to convert my living room into a theater. What make and model do you have? Point me in the right direction. Black curtains sound awesome. I feel a remodel to my home in the near future.

j.c.,

I have the Panasonic PT-AE700U. I got it from projectorpeople.com a couple of years ago. I know they have a newer model out now. It is a reliable machine with excellent color. The one thing I wish it had were remote controlled focus. I have to manually twist the lens to focus and I have it mounted near my ceiling so this can be a bit challenging.
