No release date yet as far as I know...it is promised in time for Christmas, though I hope it comes out considerably sooner.

Bigwill - We watched ROTK yesterday (in DD, not DTS - my DVD player requires too much futzing, but I digress). Neither whine nor cheese was evident.

Good movie and good sound processing, IMO.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Thanks anyway. I wonder if it has something to do with the "fullscreen" versions I've been watching? I have a 4:3 HDTV and sometimes opt for the larger image.

That shouldn't be causing a problem. Both aspect ratios use the same soundtrack.

BigWill, what kind of audio netherworld are you living in? Yuor sister-in-law's sub hums and your DVD player whines. Acouple more pieces of gear and you could do a whole Spike Jones Band thing. BTW, I personally don't know who Spike Jones is; my grandmother told me about him.

I must add a comment about "Underworld". Special. I wathced it twice. Serios LFE enhanced by Kate. Oh YEAH.

Yeah, Ray, I hear ya'. I'm fixin' to go take a closer look at the sister-in-laws box. Do you think a new outboard amp for my poor Denon 2802 is in order, as well? I'd hate to have like 400 watts per channel to drive my M60s if it weren't really necessary.

OK - I am exercising tremendous professional restraint in completely passing over the initial remark in your post relative to your sister-in-law. I can understand how lonely it must get where you are.

I don't know if an amp is anywhere near being the right answer. Is this DVD the only one you are having trouble with? Have you borrowed, rented or chacked the same DVD out of the library for comparison? It might just be that the DVD Player or receiver is a little under the weather.

BigWill,
it wouldn't be something else in your chain of electronics would it? I know my tv had a really high pitched whine that was pretty easily drowned out when pushing a bit of volume (it came and went). Come to think of it, I haven't noticed it for a while, could be it's gone away.

That would be the only thing I regret about buying a CRT, it is such a heavy beast that I would tend to ignore minor functional problems because it's such a pain in the a@@ to haul it in for servicing (not that there has been many problems).

By the way, guys...

LORT:ROTK EE wil be released in December, NOT JANUARY. They don't have to rush it out this year to beat a movie into the theaters, so I guess they're taking a little extra time to do it....44 extra minutes or so though put it over 4 hours I heard.

A pint at the King's Head says it's a flyback issue.
