Thumbs up 'Digital Video Essentials' - High-Def Digest Review

Peter's review of 'Digital Video Essentials' is up. He says this HD
DVD version of the seminal calibration tool proves to be more than
up-to-snuff, providing test patterns and the like in full 1080p video
and TrueHD audio. Even better, this retooled high-def edition
eliminates many of the navigational hassles that have plagued previous
versions of 'DVE.'

Yup mine arrived too - all the patterns you need are there. And much much easier to navigate than SD DVE. Still, can't wait to see what AVIA II will offer

Default Video Calibration tool does not work with the xbox 360 add on.

I got the disc last week. A very nice effort really. I used in it my 1st and 2nd gen Toshiba player and everything was fine. Using it in my 360 add on player was not possible as the menu for the tools were not available for selection.

I am wondering if it has to do with the fact that my connection is via component cable and not hdmi (only the newer elite system has hdmi.)

A statement was already made somewhere that the upcoming firmware upgrade for the 360 will resolve the problem with DVE.

Is it just me or did the HD DVD side content seem a little slow to load once you made a selection?

I wonder about Peter's 2003 release date for the dvd version. I own a copy of the dvd and it was free from Toshiba (along with a t-shirt and a disc of music videos) for being an early adopter for the format, i.e. you had to buy in by September 1997. I remember because my brother and I both bought players, but he waited too long to mail his registration card in, so he missed out.

We knew there would be problems before the disc was released since it was announced from an MS rep that the Spring update would correct the issue. But the Sping update is still 6 or 7 days away.

"'Digital Video Essentials' HD DVD Hits Xbox 360 Playback Snag"

Shock, gasp. We've known this for quite some time now. Boy, talk about a biased heading. Why couldn't it have been "May 7th XBox 360 Update To Enable 'Digital Video Essentials' HD DVD"?
