I want to backup my Star Wars trilogy NTSC laserdiscs onto my HTPC. I just bought a midiman coax to optical converter, delivered from millenium music for £40. This should allow my to take my Pioneer 925 laserdisc toslink optical output in to my Audiophile 2496 digital input to record bit-perfect PCM dolby pro-logic. I will be using a IDS Falcon to do the video capture. I'd appreciate any comments on: 1. Composite into the Falcon? 2. S-Video into the falcon (the Pioneer has a reasonable 3-line digital comb filter)? 3. My HTPC is running WinME, so will the 2GB limit hit me, the laserdiscs are abour 30 minutes a side. 4. What should I use to capture the video? I was thinking about MJPEG, as I have purchased the Morgan MJPEG codec. Was thinking of using avisynth to crop the letterbox image from 4:3 to 2.35:1 (480i60 down around 272i60) when inverse telecine to drop the 59.94 interlased fields per second back down to 23.976fps (272p24) Q: What horizontal capture resolution pixel width would you use for NTSC laserdiscs the card seems to do up-to 768(or similar), but that seems overkill for NTSC bandwidth material Ideally I'd like the files in DVD compatible MPEG2 format. I was thinking of using TSNmpg(spelling?) which I've played with in the past. Is there a way I can compress the audio a bit, with say Dolby Digital AC-3? Without losing the quality? I don't currently have a DVD burner, but would buy one if I could get a film onto a DVD in high quality and only several hours work (excluding re-compression). Experience and comments appreciated.
