How is the latest HDpatch with patching the full stream? Faster?
I haven't posted the latest HDPatch yet, and even when I do DVDPatcher is still faster. You can download it here: DVDPatcher
. Once you've converted to program stream (*.mpg), launch DVDPatcher and open your file. Here are the settings:
Bitrate: choose custom and set it to the value matching "MPEG2 Info" above (something like 15000000)
AspectRatio: Presumably you'll leave this at 16:9
HorizontalSize: choose "Custom" and set it to the correct size from "MPEG2 Info" (should be 1920, 1440 or 1280).
VerticalSize: choose "Custom" and set it to 1080
Framerate: leave this set to 29.97
Patch: Entire File
At some point, either before or after you hit "Patch Now", you'll get a warning about changing VerticalSize. It will ask "Do you know what you do?" - click "Yes". You may then need to hit "Patch Now" again. Verify your values then click "Start". Now it will warn you that you're changing VerticalSize and asks "Abort Patch?" - click "No". Patching will commence.
DVDPatcher is very fast, which is why I haven't released the HDPatch update yet (I'm jealous and trying to match the speed). Let me know if you have any problems.
p.s. Joe - you may want to stash this post as it may find a place somewhere in the guide as an alternative to HDPatch.
