I guess what I really meant to say was that while I personally have very little interest in probably more than half of the topics that pop up on the main page's thread activity such as steelbooks, digibooks, lenticular slipcovers, and random "what do you hate?", "what do you love?", "list your top/favorite whatever", etc. threads, I have much more interest in The X-Files.

I just don't understand why those pointless (to me) topics merit being shown to the populous at large on the main page, but something like this thread has to be actively searched out and discovered on your own. I am subscribed to this thread, but I would imagine that a lot of members here, especially the newer ones, use the main page's rotating assortment of newly posted thread activity as their only info for what's being discussed on this site, and some may not even be aware that this thread even exists, but they sure know if a blu-ray comes with a paper wrapper or not. I guess in that sense, it is a popularity contest and obviously a slipcover warrants more attention than a discussion of The X-Files and it's hopeful eventual release on blu-ray.

I really don't want to get into an argument about it, and I guess I can understand why you might prefer for this thread to be hidden away so you don't get all excited every time someone posts in it, but I'm just saying that not everyone on here may be aware of all of the subforums, and also that even a casual discussion about The X-Files is much more interesting to me than a lot of the crap that does get the front row treatment on the main page.

Good evening everyone.

I'm from Brazil, and my country is being transmitting the X-Files in HD series, through a pay TV tool, called NOW, by NET TV Company. It's like the NET Flix, but is transmitted by fiber optic cable and a receiver.

The first 6 seasons in HD is available. What can I say that I watched by far is that from the 5th season has a visible improvement in the image quality. I'm enjoying watching it all over again. If I could burn these episodes, or capture images so that you guys could see the difference in the qualities of images comparing to the first seasons!

Really, I think the aspect ratio, 16 x 9, from season 5, helps.
Even the special effects are much better. No more those parts where it was not possible to apply high definition.

This silence from Fox about a Blu-ray release is killing me. Wish I hadn't seen this thread now

Good evening!
Glad to here you're getting these episodes. Out of interest, are the first 4 seasons in 4:3 in Brazil? If you do manage to get some screen-caps, I'd love to see them. The images others have posted have all been incredible.

Looking at the calendar; if SiebenMaxx keeps up the current schedule, we should be hitting the start of Season 5 around Christmas.

I would say that the "main page" is the list of sub-forums at http://forum.blu-ray.com/ -- "Blu-ray Movies - North America" may be the most popular sub-forum, but it isn't set aside as the "main" one. And whenever you go to the North America page, right at the top of the page is a link to the "Wish Lists" forum along with a "Last Post" section which shows you the thread title of the most recent post on Wish Lists--these days it's most often the X-Files thread, so that's likely to catch the eye of any X-Files fan who logs onto the North America page but doesn't regularly check the Wish Lists forum.

You need to have a Germany-based IP to access their video feeds.

These widescreen HD transfers look pretty great. Would buy this show on Blu-Ray at pretty much any price. Wonder when Fox is going to release them finally? Hopefully we will get Blu-Ray copies of The Lone Gunmen and Millennium as well to complete our collections.

Pretty sure everything in that frame is real, in-camera photography, no bluescreen. That looks like an actual location to me.

Sorting this forum by number of posts, this threat has over twice as many as the next highest. This would have to be the most wanted...

Wow. I just hope Buffy's HD will be just as good X-Files.
