Re: Atari Lynx Collectors Thread

Anyone else picked up the new Retro HQ SD Card? An excellent Everdrive-style device for the Lynx. I did a video review of it for those interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsZ_tMtkk1g I've seen those on AtariAge but it hasn't been a massive priority for me. When I was getting into the Lynx, ...

Re: XBox 360

Welcome to the HD club. :lol: I was like that with DVD, could never go back to VHS after that, but yeah also happened with Blu Ray though not everything gets a blu ray release (Today's WWE Home Media for example.) and I even read 1 UK anime distributor will no longer be putting out DVDs and be goin...

Re: XBox 360

I bought 8 WB HD DVDs before I became aware of this issue. I've watched two of them so far without issue (although one of them freezes up sometimes at the bonus feature menu but it's fine if you just load up the disc again). Watched a few more now and here are the results: The Shining (European ver...

Re: XBox 360

Word of warning, watch out for any films issued by Warner Bros though as they are notorious for disc rot (something to do with how they treated the discs during production i believe). Unfortunately this means films like The Matrix, Harry Potter, Blade Runner etc may either give you playback issues ...

Re: XBox 360

Those HD DVD Drives will work with any model of 360 right? Been toying with the idea of getting one for collection giggles and if CeX are doing them for that cheap, why not? I'm using it with a 360 slim. I don't have the original white 360 and I can't vouch for any other models but my guess is that...

Re: XBox 360

Problem solved. I just had to go into the Video Apps tab and the HD DVD option was right there waiting for me. So annoying when you spend ages stressing out just to find out that it was something simple all along. I stumbled into HD DVD because they had an HD DVD copy of Hendrix in Monterey up for g...

You tried a regular non HD DVD?
Yes, both a DVD and an HD DVD.

Re: XBox 360

I recently acquired an HD DVD drive and I'm having trouble getting it to work with my 360 slim. I've used the install disc and hooked everything up correctly but the discs just won't run when I put them in the drive. The drive comes up in the Storage section of the dashboard and I've tried formattin...

Re: The Wonders of the World Cup

Tomorrow we've got Argentina v Croatia or Messi v Modric. Really looking forward to that one. It's quite a tough one to call; Croatia have made the better start and I'd put money on Modric to run the show ahead of Messi but with a sharp-shooter like Aguero in the mix I wouldn't be too quick to write...

Re: The Wonders of the World Cup

That's easy for you to say when the majority of matches aren't on between 1AM and 6AM in your time zone. :D Aren't you able to set your cable box to record them so you can watch them at a more convenient time? Plus, most of the TV stations have websites where you can stream the matches any time you...

Re: The Wonders of the World Cup

What do people who've actually seen the other matches think of the teams so far? The pick of the bunch so far is Portugal v Spain. These look like the two teams most likely to win the World Cup. Spain has the best all-round team (minus a manager) but the sheer brilliance of Christiano Ronaldo could...

Re: Buying CD's

There is still a niche group of people who want a physical collection but don't want to spend £20 on a record that will degrade every time they listen to it. A CD is also desirable to digital freedom fighters who want control over the music they listen to instead of leaving that control in the hands...

Re: Spectrum Vega Plus Poll

Has this been on Watchdog as a showcase of the potential pitfalls of crowdfunding yet? Would make an interesting piece and would be amusing to see them trying to avoid questions in the street. I think such a program would be a huge disservice to the many genuine and successful crowdfunding campaign...

Re: Lets talk about vinyl

Does anyone here own a holographic Vinyl LP? Lazaretto by Jack White has a spinning angel on the run out groove I have this album. The music is good too. The key things that are unique about this album (apart from the mentioned hologram) are the following: - side 1 plays from the inside out - there...

Re: Lets talk about vinyl

These are my recent buys: Steve Vai, Passion and Warfare (2013 repress) - one of the coolest cover designs ever and one of the coolest albums ever; glad to finally have it on vinyl. Scissor Sisters debut album (2014 repress) - never knew this was released on vinyl until about a week ago when they ha...
