Supertramp: Live In Paris '79
17 New from
Having anticipated this release for some time, I can honestly say it has NOT been a disappointment as so many blurays of older shows have proved. The picture is superb and colourful, the sound is up to today's standards in every way and the 5.1 mix is spot on.
Considering the age of this material, it has stood the test of time to seriously challenge many up-to-date music blurays.
I'm sure Supertramp fans will be delighted with this release. Anyone else who might consider giving a go will find it wonderfully entertaining from a band who, mysteriously, were completely missed from recent high profile celebrations of british music.

The performance is superb and has been beautifully filmed and recorded. In particular the DTS Master Audio track is stunning! This is a must for Wakeman fans and great value too!!
Hauppauge HD PVR USB High Definition Video Recorder 01228
I purchased this product and it worked fine in normal resolution. However, I had to return it to Play due to it not being able to record HD from Freesat using Humax HD Freesat box. Play were superb in handling the return as at the time it appeared faulty. However, I have now learned that the box was not at fault - the problem lies in the freesat signal and Freesat HD boxes. The freesat system carries a signal on the HD stream that specifically switches off the RGB signal in Freesat boxes so only HDCP compliant signals via HDMI are output. This is why the Hauppauge could not be used as this uses the RGB out. This signal is present on BBC HD and ITV HD signals. This device works superbly on normal and HD signals from other sources but NOT Freesat HD. I have since also learned that in order to record from BBC HD it is possible to tune in to it on other sattelite sources which do NOT have the signal mentioned as they are not broadcasting the the Freesat spec. ITV HD cannot be found elsewhere. Why does Freesat do this? Apparently this signal was designed into the system for future 'premium' services and can be switched on and off at source. But the BBC and ITV have elected to have it switched on permanently thus creating this problem. Very annoying.Just to repeat that this is not a problem with the Hauppauge box nor Play.I hope this information proves helpful.

Firstly, this Blu-ray was cheaper from Play than the normal DVD was from my local high-street retailer!! However, put this into your drive and just marvel in three elements 1) the stunning picture quality that is brimming with detail and colour 2) the incredibly detailed DTS-HD soundtrack that is full of dynamic range and incredible channel separation and finally 3) a really classic performance by the band which includes tracks both old and new totalling well over two hours.
For this price what more could anyone want?
