Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Sharpness controls the edges of images primarily. If its set too low thing can look artificially soft, too high and they can look artificially sharp.

Whether 480p or 1080p, the menus and text should be the same size since they are 16:9. But they'll look fuzzier at 480p.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

They are much tougher to read at 480p at this distance and I haven't tested at 720p. EDIT: Pretty tough to read at 720p as well.

Reeborg, you may want to check the output settings on your Blu-ray player. Also, what type of cables are you using to connect the player to your TV?

Depends on how much you like the show and how happy you are with the visual quality of the DVD's.

For me it was a no-brainer, like TOS, right from the moment the project was announced.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Hate to say it but if it wasn't for TNG I wouldn't have gotten into Star Trek as much as I am, Netflix gave me the gift of all i can watch TNG for awhile, so never found the need to buy the DVDs, but now that there is blu-ray I'm debating on what to get. I love the show, I think I'll try out the Blu-ray so upset I missed it in theaters though !

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

You can always pick up the sampler disc for relatively cheap to see it in action before ponying up for the full season sets.

Going for $16.62 on Amazon.

Thanks Bill for your good intentions. I use a HDMI cable to connect the player.

I also put resolution from automatic to 1080p, still the text has not become any bigger. I can read it without feeling comfortable in doing it.

Let's just say, I wish they had made better use of the screen "capacity" than just put the small menu text and the small episode pictures. Putting the episode picture "big" in the middle with "bigger" episode title while selecting that particular episode might just have done the trick and filled the empty "space".

Me and my family members, we are just not comfortable with the text size and would have wished it to be bigger. Usually, I don't have this issue with other blu-rays. Let's leave at that.

Re: Season TWO OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I spend so little time in the menus that they can be great big or miniscule and it doesn't bother me one way or the other. But you can always drop CBS or CBS-Digital (or both) an e-mail and see if they're receptive to increasing the font size on future menu screens.

I was watching Where Silence has Lease and just noticed, how convenient it was Wesley was at his station at the beginning and the end, BUT JUST HAPPENED to be off duty when Negallum decided to kill the guy sitting at his station.

They could have just offed Wesley right then and there!!
