Could this be another cliché post?.. Yes. Yes, it is. Try and comment on articles with a little bit of a positive attitude, eh? That's a good chap :P

why do you make stupid comments like this?

It also adds the functionality of U-Control. I was already impressed with the 200 Dollar HD dvd add on....Now i'm super pleased...

Smellslikepie3636d ago

Hello again! :P

Which Universal HDDVDs have U-Control? I heard King Kong had it but i can't find how to access it :/.

NextGen24Gamer3635d ago (Edited 3635d ago )

You select it in the settings area before you play the movie...then you turn U control "ON"....Your movie will start and while you are watching the movie....a red symbol high lights for u control. If you press the "OK" button on your media remote....it selects it and in a small window you can see the makings of certain scenes...picture galleries...commentaries...All this whle the Main Feature is still playing. Its really cool. And its something HD dvd specific...Its a wonderful next gen feature that makes your movie experience that much more entertaining.

Smellslikepie3635d ago (Edited 3635d ago )

I've managed to do that on a Batman Begins (but that's IME) I can't find the U-Control thing, it doesn't appear to be there for me :/

I'll have another check

EDIT: Yeah, in 'Setup' I ave 'Spoken Launguages', 'Subtitles' and 'Button Sounds'. Bollocks! Looks like I don't have it.

There's only 3 options for me by the way. Play, setup and scenes

NextGen24Gamer3635d ago

Did you try King Kong yet? Its pretty cool stuff.

gta_cb3635d ago

that sounds like a very cool feature! =D

Smellslikepie3635d ago (Edited 3635d ago )

No, for some reason y version of King Kong doesn't have it :/ and there's no mention of it on the back.

However, just about all of my WarnerBrothers HDDVDs have their equivalent ( IME - In Movie Experience)

EDIT: by the way, I wasn't saying Batman had U-Control, I was saying it had IME :P
