    I have HDTV rips of Episode 1-10 of Atlantis on a single DVD but you can only view them on a computer or Divx/XviD DVD Player, would they be of any use?

    I use to do that a lot,
    Tip. Anything on series link press blue to keep it, That way you have to press twice to delete, you can't really delete by accident!

    Indiana Jones that would be very useful yes, thanks for the offer. You have a PM.

    Adderson, that would be true if I had Sky but this is on my Pana E85. You see I had watched SG1 on Thursday then got interuppted before I watched Atlantis. Fast Forward to Saturday night, realised I had watched/burned everything I had on the HDD so erased it all, 10 mns later realised I hadn't watched Atlantis yet :oops:

    Doubtful. ;) Too big for one DVD. One DVD rip is approximately 4 GB.

    Exactly, they are HDTV rips in Divx format at 350Mb each so 10 episodes fit onto a single DVDr with enough space left for another 2 episodes but only the first 10 episodes are available as HDTV rips so I have kept them on a seperate DVD.

    Had to explain the difference between a hdtv labelled xvid avi and a true transport stream capture of HD video. Friend of mine wasn't impressed with the quality of the avi after hearing me drone on about High Def for the last year.
    Basically pointed him to the difference in file size between the avi and .ts for the same 42 min program and let him figure out the rest himself:)

    I'm sorry, but even with mpg4 compression such as xvid you're not going to get a 350 MB file. Impossible.

    Don't be fooled by the hdtv in file names. The key is to check the native resolution.

    For example:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Opening one of each, you find:

    624 x 352 for the 350 MB "hdtv" file.
    [​IMG]



    1,280 x 720 for the 3.5 GB real HDTV file.
    [​IMG]



    Your 350 MB capture is nothing more than a capture from a digital satelite broadcast in NTSC, cropped a bit to give it the correct 1.77 aspect ratio.


    I just want to set the record straight because I record them every Friday night in HD on my computer and there is no way you'll get 40 minutes of HD video in a 350 MB file.

    The example for the 350Mb version you posted which has the Sci-Fi logo is a standard TV rip, not a HDTV rip. The HDTV rips I downloaded may not be in the original HDTV resolution but they were still taken from an HDTV source, alot of others shows are also available as HDTV rips including Alias, Enterprise and Smallville. It is true you are not getting proper HD quality but the quality of the Atlantis HDTV rips is much better than the standard Sci-Fi channel rips, the picture is alot more detailed and some of them have much better colour.
    I would do comparisons between the two types but I deleted all the standard TV rips of Atlantis when I downloaded the HDTV rips but if you want to post some shots from the standard TV rips and tell me the time the shot is from and which episode I will do some picture comparisons between the two.

    In the mean time, here are some screenshots I took from the HDTV rip of the Pilot episode...

    Nah, thats ok. You have standard definition captures, I have high definition captures. I just wanted to set the record straight that a 350MB capture isn't high definition.
