(man you got me excited hoping there was a way to run my 100+ disks without reprocessing them) lol.
What leads you to that conclusion ?
When I compare the HDDVD .mkv to the original disc played on the Toshiba A2 the only difference is that the A2 is limited to 1080i/p60 whereas the .mkv reports 1080/24p on my LG 55LH90 TV. No difference in PQ and the LH90 is very picky about image defects.
Running the PBO trough the Sony 820 AVR (PBO set to HDMI raw) from the .mkv shows DB digital 3/2 and lights all the appropriate icons for SW, LF, Center, RF and the rear surrounds on my 7.1 audio system.
Attached are Mediainfo text files for EVO, MKV and ISO. Note that Mediainfo is very limited for ISO formats and also that the EVO only lists feature 1 so the length is different. These are all VC1 encoded and I see nothing that would indicate that the HDDVD rips are deficient in any way.
Perhaps the fact that my PC has an LG optical dual format drive (BR and HDDVD) used in the LG Dual format BH200 standalone player accounts for the difference.
Also note that the .evo plays in Win7 64 bit WMC with sound on my PC as does the .mkv.
Sadly, the Sting film to HDDVD transfer is not the best, should have used Battle of the Bulge instead, to late now.
If that does not meet your requirements there is always this:http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=137151
scroll down to HDDVD
although I have not used that.
BTW all rips are from discs I own.
Would certainly appreciate any further observations from you on this subject.
