Discussion in 'Fraggle Rock' started by GelflingWaldo, Jan 9, 2008.
Perhaps it is dependant on the DVD?
I don't think so, I have DVDs from Japan that work fine to...all I'm using is a normal everyday HD cable to connect it to my TV
Well, apparently, it only works for your stuff, considering others have issues with their equipment.
Not really, I think most newer tvs (mine is about three years old now) don't have as much of the PAL issue anymore
Well, mine is a classic, so it may have said issues.
it's a mystery
everyone that i know has said that they got the final disc set to Fraggle Rock. But Not me i want to know when and where is the set going to america?When is the street date of Faggle Rock?
And Most Importanly IS There going to be a Movie of the show?
I would love to really Know this.
The final disk set as of now isn't being released separately in the US, it's being released with a huge box set including the other seasons, which has upset a lot of fans.
The might have bought the AUS season 4 .
And there is going to be a movie, but we've gotten no new news about it for a while now...
Right. Most of the Henson films have went underground to the point that even fans are left out of the loop.
They did even have to say any details just a 'still going fine' comment every few months would be nice
Agreed. We just want to be assured that everything is going well.
The DVD player or TV must have a NTSC-PAL converter built in, even if it doesn't say. Not all recent ones do - it depends on the model. I think most people with older players/tv's and also some cheaper models might have problems with this - i guess the only way is to try it.
Like I said, it was dependant on the stuff one has.
To note, I have a few DVDs from the UK, and a number from Japan, and all play fine on my Region Free player. I got mine from YesAsia.com, so that might be a good place to find something If you don't want to go for that, I was also able to find a special, free program to put on my computer that lets you play DVDs from all regions. So I'm pretty set, I think! If you're interested, PM me and I'll give you the name - I don't believe it's against the rules but I want to be safe.
Incidentally, is this E-Z place reputable? I'm always weary of online stores with names like E-Z DVD :x
My DVD's came today, so happy, I've never seen the animated series so looking forward to it. I think I'm going to have a Fragglefest this weekend. Poor old Bloke, he'll have to sit on the Mac all weekend and find an anti Henson / Disney forum site to rank about me on!.
I've bought dvd's from them a handfull of times and theres not any problems at all with them, they are used to handle international customers.
This is the first I have heard about this, I was on vacation for two weeks, when did HIT loose their mind? I emailed them, no response. I bought the previous three seasons and this is a total slap in the face. I can't fork out 100 + for the complete series, I was barley able to pay the 35-50 dollar price tag for the separate seasons. I think I may just download it, and I'm going to boycott HIT. I'm just one person and may not make a difference, but I'm going to try, anybody else not buying this?
Ah OK, thank you
Squall Leonhart: Nope, I won't be buying this at all. Season 4 is all I want, so if I have to resort to buying it from another country to get it, I will!
I brought mine from EZDVD.com.au they came within 4 days of purchase from Australia to the UK. They do all 4 seasons and the animated series too.
The whole set cost me £69.00 including postage. Very good service. I notice that they also do the whole series of Smurfs in a box set for the same price. I may buy that next month.
The only difference between the Australian DVD's and the US / UK versions is the fact they don't have special features and they have a big "G - General" on the front. The packaging is fantastic. I'm not bothered about the special features as I have them on a UK DVD that came out back in the 90's. The only difference for me is, I've now had to get used to Fraggle Rock with Doc's workshop, rather than the Lighthouse Keeper which we had in the UK.
I watched the first disc this morning, couldn't believe how good they where, I appreciate them more as an adult.
Thank you Redsonga for the tip, You've made an old girl very happy!
It didn't cost me anymore than shipping in the US for a set, $5-7 or so
