    Gremlin seeks DVDR advice

    I bought the Pioneer DVR-640H-S from a retailer at Amazon.com for $318.00 tax free and free shipping. It has the hard drive which allows me to record up to 10 hours on one timer setting at a time. I can do one touch copy to DVD after I divide all the titles and clean them up. This is the best machine I have ever owned.

    Sound Volume on TCM

    Fred is the expert on this and what he said about providers and sound levels was right on the money. I had sound level problems when I had DirecTV and now with Dish I have no sound problems at all. So as Bill just said get in touch with your provider and let them know about your problem, but beware, because when I told DirecTV about my problem they said no one else is complaining about this and gave me no help at all. Two weeks later I changed to Dish and they lost a customer. Allie
  4. The next programming challenge will require a lot of research so I am giving everyone a brief summary of what is required so that you will be able to get started. It will not start until the end of April so just have fun with it first and don?t get to serious about the details. The next programming challenge will be 31 Days of Oscar and Time Warner Inc. is pulling out all the stops for this big event! This year 2008 they will simulcast the 31 Days of Oscars on 5-Star Max because after it is all over with they will rename this channel TCM-Plus! A new channel that will offer the best of films from 1929 to the present. Your job as TCM Programmer is to make this event the best one ever. The rules are that all films selected are to be nominated for a category or to have won in a category that you choose to include. You must keep in mind at all times that this will be on 5-Star Max and viewers that do not usually watch TCM are a part of the demographics that you will be programming for, so please keep this in mind when selecting your weeks schedule. There will be restrictions applied later as far as movie studios that can be used so don?t get so caught up on your choice for movies (general restrictions that have been used in previous challenges will still apply). I will outlay the official rules in April so for now just be thinking about what you would like to do for this big event and do all of the research required. Allie

    What do you watch other than TCM?

    My hard drive keeps my busy, I come home from work, clean it up, copy to DVD. I set my timer before I go to work or to sleep, the Dish receiver automatically changes channels so that the right movie gets recorded. I don't watch TV in real time so movie channels are the only thing I end up watching through time shifting. They are: 1. TCM (most of the time) 2. Showtime Unlimited Channels ( I switch back and forth between Showtime and Cinemax each month. I have Cinemax this month so I will have Showtime next month). 3. Cinemax Channels 4. Encore Channels 5. FMC 6. IFC 7. PBS I don't watch any channel that has commercials. I never have HBO or Starz because they are a waste of money to me. Anything worthwhile on HBO will show up on Cinemax and anything worthwhile on Starz will show up on the Encore channels.
  7. This has been a great challenge and I am honored to be included among such great people who love TCM as much as I do. I like all of you will be looking to the months ahead to see all of the great ideas and movies that show up from all of these super entries. The next challenge will no begin until after TAX Time is over with so that we can all take care of that dreadful business. Thanks to everyone who joined in on this great challenge and to everyone that voted. Allie
  8. All 13 entries are top notch and I would find it hard to pick between them unless I singled out one aspect to concentrate on and make my decision based upon that. Therefore? My vote goes to the person who best understands what TCM Underground is all about and both of the choices included fits that definition for me. Daimajin (1966) A giant stone statue comes to life to protect the residents of a small town against the depredations of an evil warlord. Two Thousand Maniacs! (1964) The citizens of the southern town, Pleasant Valley, lure six Yankee tourists into town where they are to be the reluctant guests for the centennial celebration of the day a band of renegade Union troops decimated the town. The town then participates in events, a different event for each of the tourists, in which the tourist is dispatched. One couple begins to suspect something and seeks a way to escape. So my vote goes to MattHelm for the CHARLIE CHAN MONOGRAM MARATHON, ANN CORIO: QUEEN OF THE BURLESQUE, GEORGE ZUCCO?S BIRTHDAY, Silent Sunday Night but most of all his TCM Underground. And lastly I vote for my Helen Hayes DVD Collection because I want to send a message to TCMProgrammer to have these on sometime in the not to distant future.
  9. I'm sorry for the mistake that was pointed out to me by movieman about my Thursday night being missing. I have been working to much and getting to little sleep lately so it just skipped by me. I think what happened was that when I copied and pasted it from word I somehow deleted those movies before I sent them on. I feel so bad about this and I apologize for the error. I feel that it would not be fare and right for me to go back and put them back in after the dead line has passed.

    My dream format for TCM

    I like it when TCM shuffles their movies like a deck of cards. This way when I go to work there maybe two movies I need to set my timer for and forget the rest. I have a DVR for those days when they play six movies in a row that I want to see but others do not have this luxury. If they had BARBARA STANWYCK on all day long I would have to check My hard drive to make sure I had enought space free for them.

    Favorite Modern Movies

    This is one of the best Modern Movies that I have seen in a while.The ending is a little tricky to get at first but there are clues. The cell phone call (it's Schultze) is just to through you off, the black woman and her child at the end..... Schultze Gets the Blues *** (2003) A newly discovered love for Cajun music reawakens a dispirited German accordionist's zest for life. (SHOTOO) Wed 3/7,13,18. (SHOW) Sun 3/11,15 (SHOCSE) Wed 3/14

    Lonelyhearts (1958)

    I agree with a poster on IMDB on this one. It's a good movie to watch if you are contemplating suicide because this will take you right over the edge and the performances in this film are very good, but the film isn't. I didn't see much in the character of William Shrike who was just abusive and cynical. It is just not a film that I could set through and watch.
  13. After looking over all of the entries for this challenge, I can only say that it would be so nice if we could split up our vote into half's or quarters. To just pick one out to vote for is going to be a hard task for everyone once they make that agonizing decision.. There is much to like in each one and with so many new contestants that came out of the gate looking like pros. SinatraFan you really put together a interesting week with Arthur Treacher, Robert Montgomery, Fay Wray, Barbara Stanwyck and John Mills just to name a few. When I look through the TCM schedule I am always looking for the lesser played and little known stars that few people on these board seldom talk about. And MattHelm your entries just seem to get better each time you do one, Charlie Chan's Monogram Marathon, Ann Corio and George Zucco. I am working on my notes to my schedule and I hope to get it in before this all gets wrapped up tonight. I started off only knowing that I wanted to do something with Glynis Johns.

  15. My rough draft is done, now I need to clean it up which will take some time. I'm not putting any shorts in because that would be just to much effort and time consuming. I can't wait to have it all done and turned in so that I can look at what everyone else as done with their schedule.
