CLASSIC COMPARISONS FOR VALENTINE'S DAY

Saturday 10th February 2007

There's something there for most as the selection ranges from romantic comedy through action to even horror! Click one of the titles on the left or visit Rewind Features to check out the list.

ADVANCED SEARCH OPTION PROTOTYPE

Wednesday 7th February 2007

We have been working on an Advanced Search option for a while and have decided now is the time to release the trial version for some user testing. It's a 'fuzzy' search which means you can search for partial phrases and it allows you to combine all of the search criteria available in the standard search option. You can access this new option here.

Please have a go and let us know what you think in the Site Feedback Forum.

WE'VE MADE A NUMBER OF OTHER IMPROVEMENTS

Wednesday 7th February 2007

As well as the new filter option which we introduced earlier this week, we have also made some other improvements to the functionality of the site:

1. Blu-Ray titles will now be listed (once updated) with the correct picture format terminology, i.e. '1080p 24fps'.

2. The Aspect Ratio, Picture Format and TV System data in the comparisons have now been separated. This will enable us to expand the search options at a later date so that, for example, you will be able to search for anamorphic releases, PAL releases or 2.35:1 releases.

3. We can now include links to reviews over at DVD Active - one of our latest friendly partner sites. Available reviews will be indicated in the same method as the DVD Beaver reviews, i.e. by a small logo link at the top of the comparison.

4. Following a user suggestion in our Site Feedback Forum the Updates/Additions lists have been improved and now list the HD/Blu-Ray titles separately.

5. The Comparison Statistics area has been expanded to include links to all HD titles, Blu-Ray titles and titles with DVD Active reviews.

As always, we hope you find these improvements useful. Please let us know what you think by visiting the Site Feedback Forum.

NEW FILTER OPTION FOR COMPARISONS

Monday 5th February 2007

Our latest improvement has just gone live. At the start of every comparison, in the area with the 'jump to' links for each release within the comparison, there are now tick boxes and an 'Apply Filter' option which allows you to choose which of the releases available you want to view.

So, if you're only interested in releases from a certain region, country or distributor, you can now choose to view only those releases.

Instructions on how to use this new option are included at the start of every comparison but if you are experiencing problems, would like to tell us what you think of this new option or have some suggestions for other improvements you'd like to see, feel free to let us know via the Site Feedback Forum.
