was able to record. Here's a mere sampling of what I currently have
stored on my system from it, all in their original aspect ratios and
transmitted with the highest-possible HD cable bandwidth:
2001: A Space Odyssey
Apocalypse Now Redux
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Bye Bye Birdie
Chariots of Fire
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Empire of the Sun
The Lion in Winter
The Magnificent Seven
A Man for All Seasons
The Music Man
My Fair Lady
A Passage to India
Shakespeare in Love
A Star Is Born
West Side Story
10 Things I Hate About You
