Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Standard definition looks better on Blu-ray than DVD due to better compression. Better or not will depend on the codec settings, won't it? For DVD, MPEG-2 can be tweaked to produce 480p picture not worse (and that will fit the whole show on a double layer DVD disc) than bluray's H.264 would. Or are...

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Shame it hasn't been upscaled for blu-ray. The codec would have been better and the bitrate could have been increased over what DVD can offer even given the source being SD. The codec would have been better indeed in that it could carry the same quality/definition with less amount of data (or carry...

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Anyone know if they'll have a US region DVD of this or is this only Europe? Should be "one size fits all" region I reckon. As for PAL or NTSC, does it really matter in 2021? Don't modern devices play everything? I'd prefer it to stay in exactly the same format (aspect ratio and frame rate...

Would that still be the case if the two of you were celebrities, and the accusers were some random fans on the internet you didn't know personally?

Re: Neil and Chris and their big secret we speculate about, from time to time

their failure to participate is pretty important. Without that, you're just a bunch of gossips chatting over the garden fence. Correct, which is why I don't see any point in talking about the actual matter in the absence of any new facts. Neither do I see it feasible to get them participate by way ...

Re: Neil and Chris and their big secret we speculate about, from time to time

This is a simple matter of biography and we, the fans, are writing it. Get over it, stop being star struck and let's bring facts to the table. Plus one. They may indeed sometimes read this place (which would cause them stop reading it again for some time :mrgreen: ), but refraining from talking abo...

Re: Neil and Chris and their big secret we speculate about, from time to time

On a side note, I am amazed how people get annoyed by this topic while claiming they do not care. Just hilarious. If you really do not care, why read and, all the more so, comment? And, if you care, why get annoyed? I mean, really, if Neil in his memoirs (to be published at some point after he is 80...

Re: Russell T Davis: It's A Sin

The 2020 Steve Coogan film Greed used It’s A Sin in the trailer but it’s not in the film or on the soundtrack. Right, that's it. I was wondering where this strange déjà vu of hearing It's a sin in a modern film trailer comes from. Unless they are actually using it in the soundtrack, we observe a ne...

Re: Russell T Davis: It's A Sin

Music-wise or PSB-wise, is there anything to wait for apart from mere use of the album version for the soundtrack and perhaps some comments by PSB? Any new PSB music or remixes?

Re: A four-hour version of It's a Sin

but there's a 41 track stem remix pack for 'its a sin', and it looks legitimate. anybody else check it out? Those tracks are genuine but they do not include the full set of the 30 tracks presented by Wolfgang Tillmans. Some tracks (e.g. the drums) are missing. Instead, there are tracks from the Mia...
