  1. ​The lack of titles, though the whole thing, is deliberate, There's nothing to distract you from the action. The contrast between the kids playing in the safety of the courtyard, and the dangers they face once they leave, the little girl almost getting hit by a car, and the poster setting the background scene. The old people working hard, and cooking anticipating the arrival of the kids from school, as marked by the clock telling the time, it also says that the time has come for another victim to be had. the fact you don't see the villain, only his shadow , is more use of foreboding, and
  2. The lack of titles, ; ie; name of film, director actors etc, helps to not destroy the imagery, The children playing in the closed in Courtyard, and the juxtaposition of the old ladies doing wash, and worrying, One says," if their singing, at least they know, their alive," ​ As soon as they leave the safety of the tenement, and go to school, they are in danger, I suspect they don't understand whats been going on, Adults probably hiding truth form them as much as possible. One girl stops at the wrong place at the wrong time.
  3. As near as I can tell there is susposd to be a android app like the one for Apple, I saw a announcement for back in 2010, Now when I have a Android tablet to use it on, its no where to be found. Has it been dropped or lost interest in? I use the App on my Touch,but would enjoy and use it more on the Android Nexus 7 tablet. Bring back the app.
  4. I actually have a couple of the original 1950's paperback books of Nero Wolf, Along with a Mike Hammer paperback, Unforunatally they don't hold up to well after 50 years...!!! As for the Nero Wolf series,I too would love to see them here.I enjoyed the last series on A&E several years ago, Unforuntatley it didn't well, and was cancelled after barely a season and half. I would love to see any of the earlier versions of either of the two series. I also enjoyed the Ellery Queen series, I seem to remember seeing Jim Hutton, playing Ellery Queen.. Ken Lawson
  5. Getting av on to a hard drive can be a can of worms, in both dealing a/v sync problems, and file formats, and burning to dvd. I have done it and had pretty results except for audio syncing with video. Recording material directly to the dvd is far simpler then going to computer and then to dvd on the computer, if all your doing to a straight copy. As for the ion products I haven't used one yet, However they do offer a simple way to copy lp and older media to the computer. As I said before my only issue would be the file format they want to save stuff in. The archivist in me, wants to s
  6. There is whole bunch of products out now designed specify to get your old analog media copied to you computer to use in the new formats. The first one that comes to mind is Ion turntables. I belive they make a whole line of products to take vhs, and othe media and get them to your computer. the link is; http://www.ionaudio.com/site/index.php I believe the turntable sells for under a $100.00, The only thing that I would say is to use a external hard drive to save the files to, and save them in the best format possible. ie, save lps as wave files,if possible, and have master copies
  7. Hi; I feel your pain, it used to be easy to hook up a tv. Now theres are so many plugs and connections, But it shouldn't be that hard, The cable company guy should have been able to hook it up for you when they installed the new HD box, or at least told you what to do to hook it up. Email me directly and I'll look up the tv and see what ports it has, andgive you some ideas. Ken
  8. On a different note; How many folks are using LCD tvs now? and what ones are handling the Stranded Def material best? As I am in the market for a new tv, LCD will be what I'm going with, and I won't be able to go to HD for quite some time. I am interested in finding a LCD that handles SD material best, with a eye for future uses as I can upgrade and add to etc. Ken Message was edited by: kennethlawson
  9. Darn thing is dropping half my post again,,,,LOL Ken
  10. I have a older Dish network DVR and a Sylvania DVD Recorder, Its a single disc unit, Just like a VCR only it uses Blank DVDs. As I mentioned in a earlier post this week, My DVR has 2 sets of RCA jacks out the back along with S-video, along with a optical out that I have hooked directly to the optical in on my surround sound system. As for my DVD recorder working. I haven't had any problems I have used the timer on the recorder conjunction with the timers on the DVR to record stuff overnight directly to the DVD. Of course that means going into the menu and setting the clock on the rec
  11. *I Feel Your Pain....!" It should not be hard to hook up a extra component to a system. A lot depends on your cable box and what outputs they were good enough to put on it, For example my sat receiver has two sets of RCAs (Red, Yellow, White,) out one goes directly to the dvd recorder, other goes to my switch box and to my tv, with the audio being sent directly from the sat receiver to the optical input of my surround sound system, The only Output I use on the dvd recorder is the video out to the switch and then the tv, so I can see what I'm doing to run the menus and ad titles an
  12. Unfortunately, it almost impossible to diagnosis problems like this without actually seeing them. The first thing I think I would ask or check is what connections you actually have on your tv, and how your cable box is connected to it. Also what connections are on the back of the DVD recorder player, Also, do you have a surround sound system added to the mix? If so, what connections are being used and are free yet? At this point I wouldn't worry too much about getting HD or digital signal into the dvd recorder. You should be able to come off the back of the cable box with a set
  13. I was thinking again, I thought up this scene, which is possible even with todays tech; Image this; You sit down with your family in front of your brand new 50+" High definition tv with 7.1 Surround; sound and all the trimmings to watch a Blu-ray movie you borrowed from a friend. You played the movie in your brand new Blu-ray HD DVD player the hooked up to the Internet via your wireless connection which for your wi-fi network for the computers. This give you extra features not on the player itself,,, or so you thought. A week latter you receive a summons to the Piracy Court in you
  14. Thanks, Being at home most of the time I guess I have too much time to think...LOL and do research about what I think about.....LOL I don't think people understand what the bigger picture is,, if the media company's can control what and how e watch or tv and how we listen to our music, the are essentially controlling a population, and limiting our freedom of speech and rights to use our bought and paid for media s we want as long as its for our own personal use and not used to make money for ourselves or pirate it as they claim we all do...!!!
  15. I'm not that into it yet, beside for most part thats not a major issue....yet.. I don't think people understand what the bigger picture is,, if the media company's can control what and how e watch or tv and how we listen to our music, the are essentially controlling a population, and limiting our freedom of speech and rights to use our bought and paid for media s we want as long as its for our own personal use and not used to make money for ourselves or pirate it as they claim we all do..!!!
