    I posted a similar thing in the 4K thread. It may say you own a title in HDX but that does not mean you can view it in HDX. Cobra and Paparazzi show I own them in HDX but they still play in SD.

      Not accurate. Cobra is playing in HDX is for me. Transfer looks great!

        Great, but I wasn't wrong - it still plays in SD for me. And your presumption is wrong, you'll need to verify each title for the reason I stated.

          You made the assumption that is plays in SD because it did for you. I proved you wrong. Sorry!

            I didn't make an assumption. I actually watched both before mentioning them and clarified it was for me. Because you'll have to verify them. Or not, I guess. Your list will be meaningless.

              As someone who can now convert their movies using M2D to HDX and will port to MA in HD. Now I can play those movies in HD on MA. That is not a meaningless list. Hopefully, they will be playable in HD on Vudu soon.

              Also, Cobra played right away in HDX for me.

                Again, great for you. I said Cobra plays for me in SD despite saying "own HDX" - and it still does as I post this.

                My point was that you're going to have to verify your titles because you didn't. Literally the first movie in your list (The Time Machine) is only SD. Can't be bought, converted, or played in anything but SD. How's that for research?

                  The Time Machine now ports from UV into Vudu as HDX. Which then passes to MA or other connected providers in HD. I can now play the movie in HD on MA. I couldn't before. Checkmate!

                    From the first post in this thread - your post:

                    Can you purchase The Time Machine in anything other than SD? Can you watch it in anything other than SD? No? Then it's not HD at Vudu. Vudu will not import an HD purchase of The Time Machine from another MA provider. Vudu is only passing through HDX to MA. Which is great but not what your list is by your own definition.

                    Maybe you need to research what "checkmate" means too. We're done here.

                            Ghost In The Shell: Solid State Society (2007) went HDX. It has been removed from the list.

                            Comment


                              Most of the remaining SD movies I have on Vudu and in the OP's list, which are available in HD elsewhere, are from Warner Brothers. Here are the ones I have in SD on Vudu:

                              Badlands
                              Broadway Melody
                              Get Carter
                              Goodbye Girl
                              Night Shift (1982)
                              On the Town (1949)
                              Sommersby

                              FelipeF, might we see these WB films and the others in the OP's list get an HD encode at some point?

                                King Of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters has lost HDX Status.
                                Two steps forward, one step back.
