Hi. Controversial title that should spark some flames. Anyway. I recently bought the US version of Starship Troopers off a mate in the US. He provided with it a few DVD9 DVDRs with a 1080i/DD 5.1 on it as well. Which i was pleased about. Original DVD & a HDTV version for under a tenner, bargain! So i decided to hook my 26" Sammy to my PC, and watch the 1080i version of it. Im underwealmed. I was expecting some amazingly high detailed picture, instead im treated to something that looks barely different to the DVD version, and the only noticable difference being that 'shiny' things look more shiny, like eye balls, and CGI looks a bit better. The only conclusions i can come to is that: -- The 1080i version ive got is actually just the DVD version upscalled. Which is unlikely considering the extra detail on shiny things. -- The 1080i version ive got is low bit-rate. Being almost 16Gb in size, i wouldnt have thought that was possible. -- That HDTV isnt all its cracked up to be. Which is the most plausable to me. Opinions, Comments & Flames welcome.
