Note: Some of those are Combo sets (dual-sided HD-DVD and regular DVD) so they're cheaper than the regular DVD version.

Picked up U-571 and The Sting to hopefully convert as volcs0 describes here: [forums.macresource.com]

Since that thread, I found this: [www.winnydows.com]

Seems (so far) to be a great free converter with tons of options. The compression takes a long, long time. Under VMWare, you're looking at 8 hours on a quad-core (for high-quality settings).

When I went to checkout it said it wasn't eligible for free Super Saver Shipping, bummer.

Edit: I see that you have to go to the other screen and choose the one fulfilled by Amazon rather than just putting it in your cart. Looks like they are about $1.00 more to qualify for the free shipping, but worth it.

Okay, I'm bracing myself for the admonitions, but I'll ask anyway. I'll assume I'd need an up-converting DVD player or an HD DVD player to really appreciate them, but if I watch these on my iMac, am I going to see them in HD?

If you buy one of the combo HD-DVD / DVD discs, then you'll be able to view the DVD version on your iMac but it would not be in HD, but rather in standard DVD which is 480p. An upconverting DVD player would also only work with the DVD version, not the HD-DVD version. The only units that can play an HD-DVD are either dedicated HD-DVD players (like a Toshiba HD-A3) or a combo HD-DVD/Blu-Ray player (like the LG BH200).

I'm looking and haven't found one yet...






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
