    I have to recommend buying a DVD player to those who ain't got one already! MoT and Minxie got one and I was incredibly surprised by the quality from the Tescos brand, even in comparison to the supposedly superior makes around like Sony and Panasonic!
    To watch on the damn thing, you gotta see the quality of Jaws! DVD breaths new life into that old gem!

    *Heads off to Yahoo Auction to find a cheapo DVD player*

    DVDs are cool - I remember the first time I watched a DVD was on my comp and even then I was surprised by the quality! Then I got my DVD player for Christmas and now I spend lots of money on DVDs now :D

    That film is sooooo gonna rule on DVD.


    I live in hope that you have the option to watch it dubbed, if you want. The comedy value in that will be enough for me to buy it.

    The region 3 has an English dub so I'm imagining that the R2 one will

    We should buy the Jaws DVD. Imagine watching that with the sound through the stereo????

    Also, MOT and Poodu...remember our movie idea we had whilst watching Jaws?

    We should do something about that, hmmm?

    And...how do we go about getting our DVD player chipped?

    I've got Jaws on DVD...they're some great outtakes...

    The one when Quint burts out laughing when he's bit by the shark is a classic..

    As for getting it chipped...can't help you there...I got mine already multi-regional

    There were, like, two outtakes.. one of Brodie and the dud gun... and Quint getting fake blood in his eye!

    And damn straight we should do something about that idea, Cass! I reckon that's a bloody winner there!! I SOOOO want to do that now!!

    LOL - it would be fun. Even an animation of some sort.

    We say Pitch Black yesterday, Poods. It was excellent (again).

    Eh? Oh.. that's one of them deleted scenes, yeah? Didn't see them!

    Gotta be live-action, Cass! Gotta be!! Oh my, how much that would ROCK!!

    Oh... and the chipping thing... you don't need to, Cass... already NTSC compatible...

    I'm sure plenty of places could chip it for you, but mine, like many others, was already done when I bought it. Just need a more recent TV to take advantage of it (R1s come out B&W on my own TV at the mo!). Works fine downstairs though so my parents can watch various stuff (like Matrix, The Mummy... yeah they wanted to see them now!)...

    If you can change your TV settings to RPG then you should'nt have a problem...it would also work fine with a computer monitor

    I'll go have a look... but the player is plugged in through the Scart cable to the TV at the moment. I've seen the problem before so I am pretty sure it's because the TV can't handle it. But I'll check :cool:

    You should be able to change the settings in you DVD options from standard to RPG...

    I had an old Sony before I got my new telly and I just had to change the display options and viola crisp and in color ( as region 1 would say )
