Hello nithr and welcome to the CRT forum. There's only 1 place I know where you can purchase the Diventix processor. e-tech in Phoenix AZ. http://www.etechvideo.com/home.htm
I think these guys were watching a lot of standard DVD that was up-scaled by the Diventix to 1920 x 1080 (1080P) or there-abouts. So far this has only been done with the sony G90 and electrohome Marquee chassis, I would stick to one of those 2 platforms unless your really adventerous. Also, if your new to CRT a pro-install is highly recomended.

I can't recall watching a single frame of standard def that week.

The content that wasn't HD-DVD or Blu-ray was from a HD cable DVR (Motorola 6412). Some HD clips were extracted as .ts files using firewire and played back using the XBox 360.

There is NO winner in a format war like this consumer wise. So far, I prefer HD DVD but BD is clearly gaining steam and BD50 titles have much improved picture quality over BD 25.

I think the format war might have some benefits to the consumer... I think the war was reponsible for Microsoft producing the XBox 360 HD-DVD add on to counter BD on the Sony PS3.

But I agree... no overall PQ winner... it varies from title to title. Some HDDVD titles look better than some BD titles, and vice versa. So it really boils down to title availability.

HD-DVD players are still more affordable. And I like the advantage of being able to burn HD files to DVD-R in the HD-DVD format.

I read an article in PC world which said the adult video industry is putting their money into Blu-ray which some "experts" believe is enough to turn the tide and make BR the eventual winner. The article also claimed it was the adult industry's decision to go with VHS that put Beta out of the consumer market.

Actually, if I'm not mistaken, it's exactly the opposite as what you say from what I understand.

actually you are both right, it just depends on when the article was written, and what portion of the adult industry.

Over a year from the consumer launch of BR or HD-DVD, the big players in the adult production industry picked BR, due to higher capacity, and better potential for interactivity, and I think a sense of history regarding the PS-2 driving DVD adoption.

However, the big news on the subject is that largely because of pressure from sony to prevent adult titles being duplicated at Blue-Ray production facilities, a large high end production house recently switched from BR to HD-DVD.

Does anyone know if it is really legal to record HD clips from a Motorola 6412? I'm thinking of doing this myself but I don't want to worry about getting into trouble.

AKAIK, as long as it's for personal use... time shifting shows so you can watch them later, and they're not sold or distributed.

I don't think any individual has ever "gotten into trouble" for using the firewire port on their cable box... it's there and being used in it's intended purpose. No hardware hacks are even required.

It's the same as using a JVC 30K DVHS recorder... it uses the exact same firewire connection.

.ts clips from freely broadcast OTA HD might be a good demo source, too, if you'd feel more comfortable with that... Microsoft, ATI, and HP offer OTA HD recording.

But if you're uncomfortable, then by all means, err on the side of caution.

You might find more useful info in the AVS "HDTV Recorders" forum.

Thanks Clarence. I knew that recording and archiving OTA was cool but just did not know for sure it was ok for subscribed cable.

I do my best to stay clear of trouble but somehow seem to manage to get into it anyway.

Its' actually illegal for your cable provider to not provide and active firewire port or other means of allowing you independent fair use recording technologies. (FCC regs, 2004. I'll have to look up the specifics, buit I found the references on the HDTV recording forum here.)

I enjoy mowing my lawn. It's the only two hours of my week where I know what's expected, understand the job, can forsee completion, and look back and see progress.

If thats the case then Dish network must be breaking the law because AFAIK there is no way to get firewire out of any of their boxes. And it is for exactly that reason that I pretty sure I am going to dump them and go to Charter cable. The subscription price is pretty close anyway.

Dish network is not a cable company, not subject to the firewire req. Unfortunate, but true.

One last bump so she doesn't get archived with pics that dont work on Sunday.

What a pain in the ass it is to move your pics from one URL to another.....

I promise, one day, I'll get it done!
