Envy Full [Extra Quality] Movie Hd 1080p
As I initially stated, the monitor works fine w my computer at 1080p. I had sought to "play" HDCP protected content through my desktop, but it is difficult to locate an known protected sample file. If HP has such a test file, it would be a plus to have this available. DVD's play fine. Netflix plays fine and I assumed Netflix likely used HDCP, but do not know this. But now I have made progress in determining if there was a fault in the HDCP as implemented on my monitor. By purchasing and installing BluRay software on my desktop, I was able to run a BluRay evaluation tool (which said my system was OK for BluRay, including a HDCP check-off on the display). Indeed, I can play BluRay movie disk at 1080P through my computer. These two HDCP checks (along w Netflix) have moved my emphasis from HDCP issues to the question of video modes. Your HDCP appears functional and still no success w my STB signal.

I remain unable to display a full 1080p signal that displays fine on other equipment. The monitor continues to complain of out of range horizontal and verticle signals, suggesting a failure to sync with one of the default resolution settings. User Mode should allow me to sync the signal and the monitor. It is advertised but does not seem to be available or else is accessed by some hidden procedure not provided to customers by any known method (electronic or print).
Warner Bros. makes amends for its previous desultory treatment of Brad Bird's animated masterpiece with a hi-def package that offers beautifully restored 2.40:1-framed 1080p visuals, dynamic DTS-HD MA 5.1 sonics and a wealth of extra features (not least the refreshingly frank documentary The Giant's Dream). It may have taken 17 years, but The Iron Giant has finally been given the lavish release that it always deserved.
First off, let's start with the commentaries, of which there are no less than FIVE. The tracks with Pegg/Wright and the Pegg/Frost/supporting cast of "officers," including Broadbent, are substantial, well-informed and required listening for fans. A third with Dalton, Woodward and other Sandford "citizens" is a little bit dull and without any real substance, but the participants get along well and show some life here and there. A fourth with technical advisors/real police officers Andy Leafe and Nick Eklund is like the Sandford actors' commentary, but without the personality. The new and fifth commentary is with Wright and Quentin Tarantino and, as you'd expect from QT, he's a lively participant. He covers how he managed to drop into this appearance and how the film closely resembles a similar, but underappreciated movie, the Clint Eastwood film The Rookie. And while Wright fills in whatever space is there with production stories or information, Tarantino discusses his films as well, not to mention the shared admiration they have for many of the established British actors that appear on screen during the feature. It's a fun and busy track, even if not a lot of valuable things are discussed, it's still fun. A whole mess of deleted scenes follow (22, 20:37), which are mainly extended takes that give you a fuller appreciation for a joke coming full circle. They include an optional commentary from Wright. The outtake reel (10:22) is slightly long but hilarious.
Hot Fuzz is the complete package; an entertaining movie that you can laugh at during every viewing, above average to near reference quality audio and video, and enough supplemental features to fully appreciate the film and make you come back for more. Any substantive complaining of the film or disc would be splitting the smallest of hairs, so I'll just clam up now and affix Hot Fuzz with the DVD Talk Collector's Series label.
