Re: Blue ray Patterns…
I’m going to burn the AVS HD for Blu-ray playback “soon” – today or tomorrow probably. If it works OK, I’ll make a copy for you. But there are some players it’s not compatible with. You write the HD patterns on a DVD – all the Blu-ray players will read DVDs, but some choke when there’s HD content on the DVD instead of standard def content. So unless you have a Blu-ray burner, the AVS HD pattern disc won’t be a “universal” solution.
I figured there was a “timing” issue with the HD Basics discs — otherwise he wouldn’t have issued an HD DVD version. It was disappointing that there weren’t any color windows when there were gray scale windows (if I remember right).
In retrospect, it might have made more sense to port the original HD DVD to Blu-ray, though I can’t say I’m wowed by the user interface on either HD or Blu-ray. Unless you have a PS3, none of the HD versions of DVE navigate very quickly.
