Default What Blu-rays have a THX demo on them?

The only one I'm aware of is the 4th Indiana Jones: KOTCS- It has the demo with the flowers and plants- anyone know of any others? If so, which demo do they have on them too?

It is a certification where the disc manufacturer pays THX to put its name on it. Nothing more. THX also will certify hardware. I do not know if THX has ever refused to certify a movie or hardware. Some receivers have a various THX modes to change the sound somewhat, but it is not a sound or video format of its own. It is also not used on Blu-rays the way it was on DVDs.

The following is a great site which lists available demo Blu-rays for DTS, Dolby, and THX:

DTS THX Dolby Demo DVD HD-DVD Blu-Ray Discs

Do a search on eBay and many of them can be bought.

Oh okay. Yeah I've seen a few receiver (the really $@%&ing expensive ones ) with the THX certification. I just wasn't sure you guys were applying it to Blu-Rays, as well.
Ahh, just dreaming about watching a Blu-Ray with THX is a dream..

" It is also not used on Blu-rays the way it was on DVDs."


And a huge thanks for that. Some of the early DVDs that were THX certified had horrible PQ & SQ on them.
