    I have waaay too many DVDs. And since they're split between this apartment and my new apartment (I'm taking a break from moving to sleeeeep), I can't think of them all off hand - the last two I bought were "Die Another Day" and the "Animatrix."

    As far as "season" box-sets go, I have "Sports Night: Seasons One and Two" (a one package deal), "Band of Brothers", "The Soporanos Seasons 1 - 3", and "Buffy: The Vampire Slayer" seasons one and two.

      i have yet to take the DVD plunge, which is surprising since i've been into home theater for how many years now.

      but the main reason why i haven't yet is the fact that with new DVD-Audio and SACD still fighting it out as to who is going to be king of the surround audio world it's sorta like the Beta/VHS war.

      there are some machines that play both DVD-Audio and SACD but are still around the $750 and up price point. if i'm going to get a player, i want one that will play BOTH formats AND around the $200 price point. especially right now when neither one is actually taking off and becoming king.

      plus when "blue light" DVD comes out there is going to be another format to think about if you are owner of a HDTV.

      sometimes it DOES pay to wait.

        You would love it over here then. Every Friday they have a bizzare and sell thousands of dvd's for only $5. [Eek!] You can't beat that with a stick.

            I LOVE DVD RECORDERS: read all about 'em here

            I have been determined to GET a DVD Recorder since they "launched," just over 12 months back

            these are now the top 3 choices:

            Panasonic DMR-E50
            from your old mate

              DVD-Audio, SACD? You mean, you actually still use disks for music?!

              And Chiefy, those DVD Recorders sound quite expensive! You can get DVD-Burners for a PC for below 300 bucks now, pop in a tv-tuner for about 30 bucks, and bam, you've got a DVD-Recorder/Tivo right in your 'puter.

                if you want to take advantage of DVD-Audio or SACD 5.1/6.1 Surround Audio, yeah you gotta use discs and players that will do that format.

                you may be able to find some "hybrid" discs that will play one of the above mentioned formats AND standard 2 channel audio as well. hybrid discs are ok in the fact that you CAN play standard 2 channel UNTIL you get a DVD-Audio/SACD player to decode those formats.

                right now it's like the Beta vs. VHS war years back. no upfront leader at the time and 2 factions deciding what is going to be THE format in the end.

                and if you have HDTV you still can't take advantage of HDTV-type DVDs until the "blue light" format is released. so even if you have HDTV, DVDs will still be displayed at little more than standard 480+ lines of resolution.

                so what does that mean? it means more money for equipment manufacturers because, once again, to take advantage of HDTV-DVD you will need ANOTHER machine that can read it properly. what a scam, but so what else is new? you ALWAYS gotta buy something new don't cha?????

                  That seems to be how every industry operates, alas. Not much profit potential if they sell you something that lasts...

                  I'm definatly holding off on HDTV for a while, as it stands way to expensive for a format that's not even widely accepted, gotta buy a special tuner and all that junk.

                  What I was getting at with DVD-Audio and SACD is that I have one of our computers plugged into our home theater via an optical cable, so I just don't bother with CDs anymore at all...

                  In fact, Microsoft has developed a format that provides up to 6.1 surrounds and generally averages about half the size of a standard .mp3 file.

                  They've also been able to create compression for video formats that are smaller than MPEG-2, and up to 7 times higher definition. And the best part? They can stream this over DSL and Cable easily, no buffering involved even.

                      BUT unfortunately you can't (at least not at the moment) COPY any DVD-Audio or SACD where they will be read and decoded in 5.1/6.1 properly even via optical. you may get 2 channel at best. but don't worry...there's some 15 year old kid out there working on that i'm sure.

                      my son said though that we should get a cheap DVD player anyway just for movies and when the other players come down in price just buy one and put the cheap player in his room. when you can get them any more for as cheap as $49 i figure why not i guess!!

                          We have a pretty good computer system and Mr. Bunny a.k.a Roger Clemens is able to burn DVD's but doesnt because he says, "that's not cool....and it is a federal crime." We are just a bunch of goodies goodies, I guess.
                          I love DVD's and dont know how I managed so long without them. We have over 100 and figure it is cheaper to wait until a movie comes out on DVD, buy it, make our own popcorn and actually save money. We have paid so many late fees at Blockbuster and Hollywood video that we dont rent anymore; we end up paying what it would have cost to buy the movie on some occasions....if we dont like a movie we buy, we just trade with someone who wants the movie.....we have only been watching the Baby Einstein series for Baby Bunny and never have time or energy to watch our DVD's I love the special features on them, especially the deleted scenes ....plus picture quality is so much better.
