i will still have the source, so not a big deal to redo if needed.
for the digital media library, i do like uncompressed 1080p for movies, but tv shows, i could go compressed. 900mb for 20 minutes just seems to much. 550mb was good using the regular profile. i want to try for 350-400, but dont know which settings to tweak. im testing right now doing a few manual conversions and see what i get.
regular, changing constant quality to 16
avg quality with 2k bitrate 2 pass with turbo
just randomly trying things to see what effect each has and if i am satisfied with it.
i assume many will say thats what i need to do, but would be good to see what others have also done.
i dont have a tv tuner. there are many here who do pvr and so would have some encoding preferences i assume.
