Those of us anxious to get their Joe Kane
-approved tweak on will have to wait a bit longer than originally planned. The originally planned
October 30th release has been moved to "early next year," with no details given for the delay. While HD DVD owners can use the previously released
dual-format disc, this latest "HD Basics" version was slated for release to both the blue and red camps. The new disc is also the first of the DVE
offerings designed specifically for HD setup, and uses a more streamlined menu that is meant to appeal to both newcomers and prosumers. We've found the DVE series to be both practical and educational; hopefully the delay is just Joe Kane poring over the details. In the meantime, there are some good tips
around for dialing in your setup.
