I bit the bullet and downloaded an iTunes movie. I wanted to see how easily and how good the quality would be on a 65" wide HDTV (rear projection). The monster of a tv was a gift and all I noticed when I got it...besides the fact that it's bigger than me and doesn't pay rent, was that it had a DVI input on the back. I was pleased. The movie, Annapolis, downloaded in 48 minutes. I don't think that is unreasonable because it takes 15 minutes to get to the nearest movie rental place and 20 minutes to get to Target to buy the DVD. I knew I wanted to own it though, so it'd be a 40 minute round trip regardless. Perhaps that's a silly way of thinking of download time versus drive time, but to me time is everything. I then plugged my Powerbook (rev d) into the back of my TV and got a two to one audio convertor (that is taking the two audio plugs and transforming them into one plug for my laptop. While I could easily use my external speakers, the TV speakers are much better. All of this was stuff I had on hand so setup time was under 5 minutes. The quality of the movie was amazing. I first set it to 1900x1080 and actually watched the movie that way. There was a black bar on each side of the screen, but the screen size was still a 50" wide screen view. If I had set it to 1600x1080 or whatever the next setting down was, it would have been full screen. Feedback on that is appreciated as this was my first venture with this. The biggest issue I had was the fact that I had no remote to start and stop the movie. I think this is ok for those with the MBP, but for me it was not possible yet. I do own the Cingular 8125 phone and I have sailing clicker so I believe this will be my best option. I use Sailing Clicker to control powerpoints and my itunes from afar, it should be perfect for this. I am not sure if anyone has thought about this, but I sure did when I had to pause the movie to get a drink. Again, another silly thing, but we all live in a remote world and I'm no exception! I really did enjoy the whole thing and I do believe that I will do this again. This also sold me on iTV. The second we can order one I am going to. I mocked it at first, but it is really a way to do what I did. To pay $15.00 for a movie that I cannot hold is questionable. I like that I can pre-order something like Cars for $13.00 and pay $3.00 less and save gas and drive time by downloading. The question is whether or not it's worth paying nearly the same for a new release ($15 v. $16) and never being able to hold the DVD. I'm not sure, but so far I'm ok with it. If anyone has any suggestions about viewing or thinks I could have done something else let me know. The only other thing to note was I didn't close the lid on the powerbook all the way. I turned my BT off and then realized if I closed it and it went to sleep I wouldn't know what to do to wake it. Perhaps closing it after I hit play on the movie is ok...feedback appreciated on that one too.
