I would have to use a 50 ft cable.

I do it wirelessly on the Xbox 360, have yet to try it with the disc on PS3 yet.

I generally prefer to just watch it on my computer, as I'd rather see it in the smaller native resolution so it doesn't look like complete crap.

They sell wireless dongles online, but it'll set you back at least $50.

Scumbo, new releases in HD look pretty good on my 27". World's Greatest Dad looked like it was shown from an HD channel, not exactly Blu Ray, but close enough.

Yeah, I know but with the Samsung units you must use the Samsung USB wireless adapter. Other brands name such as Belkin will not work, they are $79.

Interesting, I didn't know some releases were HD. Do they list those streaming movies differently, or are they just uploading higher quality streams?

I'm in the same boat with the Samsung USB. I saw some at Best Buy for about $60 open-box.

You'll see a little HD icon by the title when you're browsing on Live.

I found it for $62 in eBay.
That's a good price from Best Buy and it makes no diff being an open box.

Right, I was just letting you know just in case you went in and were looking for the open box specifically.

If it's less than $10 shipping, I'd go with the eBay deal.

LOTR is out this week on Blu Ray. I'd love to get it but it's $60.00 for the set. I'll wait until the price comes down, which I assume it will eventually

I only have one of the LOTR movies on DVD and I've never watched it

Sadly, it's getting some less than stellar reviews in regards to picture quality.

This is one of the most obvious future double-dips, too. Not worth getting right now.

Are you guys going to hold off on Avatar until the version with actual bonus features is released later this year? (if you're even interested at all)

Absolutely.

Amazon Blu Ray prices went back down again, Close Encounters in particular ($25 to $18).
