90% of the stuff i download i do no watch, but my wife does. I make DVD's for her. FOr my stuff, i convert it to IPOD form and watch in on IPOD. Some things i love, ilike MY BOSS MY HERO i also burn to DVD.

Besides DVD and PC, im not sure what you are looking for.

there's a similar thread about this
http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopic_26660_0.htm
As for me.. I used to convert everything I watch to DVD
but then I started watching some bad ones and it was really a waste of DVD
so.. I only burn some of the chosen ones now

watch them on the computer. don't wanna go through the whole process of converting them into DVDs. i guess if i really felt like it, i could just hook up my laptop up to the TV, but 99% of the time, i really don't feel like it!

PC. But with the monitor facing my bed, so I can watch while in bed. I am remodeling now and plan to get the biggest monitor I can find... or a TV to hook to my PC, so I can really enjoy dramas. : )

I still watch the majority of things on my computer. I purchased a Philips DVD player with DivX playback recently and have also begun watching things I had burned to DVD-R long ago. Converting was just too much of a hassle.

I watch them on my pc. I thought I'd have a go at converting Good Luck to dvd the other day because I'd really like to see it on my tv - It takes about four hours on my P4 2.4ghz 1GB RAM to encode one episodefile. You can fit about four episodes on a disk. So you are looking at twenty hours for one disk. I suppose if you were just encoding one film it would be quicker but yeah it really takes a long time. Data dvd's are a lot quicker to make, just a shame my dvd player won't play avi files. I know there are players out there that do.

I use TV-out with my Nvdia 7900GT...The sizing sucks though with the current driver revision so it stretches the image vertically a little. I want to get both a widescreen TV and LCD monitor for my computer so I can watch things as they are meant to be seen. ..

hey HKGIRL, do you know of any encoding programs for WindowsXP that are MULTI-THREADED? I got a dual core setup and I need to put it to good use..

...with my computer on a samsung 21" widescreen lcd montor. i have a couple divx dvd players (philips, jvc lg) but i rarely use 'em to watch anything. the one next to my computer has become more of a testing tool once in a while to see if dvd's will work outside my computer.

I have an old NEC 19" RGB monitor (15KHz). It's connected to the composite output of my video card and MPEG2 decoder card so I watch anything 4:3 on it. For widescreen stuff sometimes I just use the PC's monitor.

The drivers for my GeForce 5200 have a control panel where one can set scan rates, pixel clocks, etc. and I'm curious about whether one can configure a 15KHz signal to come out the VGA connector. That would be better quality than composite.

i watch all the dramas using my computer (pc). it's easier and more convenient for me. once, my mom tried to use my pc to watch, she nearly "kill" my pc. i never let her touch my pc again. hehe...

I've watch them mostly on TV through TV-OUT and I have a widescreen TV so the format is never a problem.

If I plan on watching several episodes, then I'll go the TV-out way because it's more comfortable and I have no problems with the screen issue. If it's just one episode, I'll just watch it on the computer.

Everything I download will be converted to DVD. Then I print a nice Front and Backcover and place it in my cupboard next to my original versions.
If I can't convert a series because of codec problems etc. I delete the series without watching and buy it instead.

I use the SVGA output on my Powerbook, and connect it to the SVGA input on my 32" sony widescreen tv.
It works perfectly. I then use the VLC-player. It has some nice Aspect Ratio options. And it's stable, and it plays almost every format out there :)

Also watch on comp, then store on DVD. When I have time, I guess I'll transfer to playable DVD. I just hate how you can only fit so many episodes on one disc though. Hopefully there will be a better way to do that :\

I watch them on my PC mainly because it allows me to watch alone. I simply HAVE to watch them by myself. I cannot truly enjoy drama with other people in the near vicinity, keeps you from getting into it.
Anyone else feel the need for isolated drama watching?
Or am I alone in this (pun intended :P )

TV-out for me...my tv is and oldish 29" Panasonic 4:3 set but it has a native anamorphic 16:9 mode...I :wub: my TV!

Also sometimes I re-encode stuff to watch on my GP2X.

I'm the same...maybe it'd be different if I was with someone who's a fan of Asian dramas but none of my friends are.

I too, find it much better to watch alone. Especially if it's something really sad and I want to cry over it but I can't because there's other people around. XD

And Asian movies that I buy, I watch on my PS3.

Well my PC monitor is my 26 inch HDTV connected DVI-D to HDMI so that's how I watch it. Or if I don't have time to watch it at home I'll put it on my PSP as well.

My aunt is a fan of K-dramas, but she talks a lot during them. I'm also a movie buff, so, um...I kinda yell at her to stfu. hahaha My mom liked watching Jikou Keisatsu and Nodame Cantabile, but she's not all otaku with me. haha

But either way, i prefer being alone. I try explaining to my friends Yamapi's sex appeal and Toma's wonderfulness and the dramas and the drama in the dramas, but...uh, those "you're into Asian things?" stares aren't worth it anymore. haha

I watch them on my laptop, usually on my bed all wrapped up in my blanket with my cat on top of me. lol I don't download, but watch them on mysoju or youtube.
