I have the last samurai HD DVD shipped from the US, but I refunded it since theres still this fued between HD-DVD vs. Blue-ray DVD formats. I think my regular DVD will stick it in until after one of the two new formats win. Sayang naman kung i'll buy a HD DVD player tapos di rin naman pala lalaki ang production ng HD-DVD then I'll have $500 HD-DVD player na nakatambak na lang sayang so I have to sseat this one out after a couple of years. Check the post on Joblo.com for further deatails on HD-DVD and Blue Ray DVD.

some "kinks" if you like to call them so, we're reported by thedigitalbits on their copies of some HD DVD including The Last Samurai:

"So guess what? We'd planned to get our reviews of Serenity, The Last Samurai and The Phantom of the Opera up on Friday... then Saturday... then today. But it hasn't happened yet. It's certainly not for lack of trying or serious effort, believe me. It's because we've encountered some significant issues during the process. First of all, we continue to have a problem with movie software freezing for a few moments during playback, after which it continues playing but without audio, or with out-of-sync audio. It's happened on every movie disc we've tried now, at least once per film (and sometimes more often).

"The other thing we've discovered is that the quality and character of the 1080i video that the Toshiba player delivers from its digital HDMI and component analog outputs is very different. The analog output features significantly enhanced color saturation and contrast levels over the HDMI, which SHOULD be more accurate. The difference is not minor, and we're trying to figure out exactly what it means and why it's happening. It's important to understand what's going on here, and which video output is correct (or more correct), so that we can accurately describe the video quality in our reviews.

"Anyway, we're going to see what Toshiba says on both of these issues and get back to you on it, then try to finish those reviews. Well... no one ever said the transition to high-def was going to be easy, did they?"



i hope your copy is perfectly alright, sir aldrin........ 8)

As usual, first generation players are at risk facing glitches & some artifacts...

On the HDMI matter...the newest version 1.3 will be available soon which will resolve some concerns esp the compatibility to Dolby Plus, Dolby HD & DTS HD :)
