I got this rather insulting unsolicited PM from new member markfilipak
I'll post it here as well as my reply as a heads up for us
and will ofc report this to AVS staff . Ordinarily I would never discuss a PM in the forum threads but in this case I will make an exception .
Unsolicited PM from markfilipak
"You know, I keep looking at what you wrote here: Are DVDs really 480p? 480p vs. 720p question.
"I upscale my DVD' s and rips to 1080p with either PS3/HDMI or PC /HDMI works astonishly good with a well mastered DVD"
and, knowing that you're an AVS Special Member, and figuring that "Special" here doesn't hold the same meaning as "Special" in "Special Education", well, I figure there's got to be a hidden meaning.
Have you built some sort of capture device that you plug on the end of an HDMI cable that then records what's coming through the HDMI and thereby "rips" the video without actually ripping?
Reply to markfilipak unsolicited and rude PM tube twister
Mark you should know that PM's are not the place for unsolicited questions or discussions .
if you don't you do now.
If you have something to say man up and post it in the forum threads .
Insulting Unsolicited PM's are a big no no here and you could loose your forum privliges when I report this to the AVS staff . I suspect that wouldn't be the first time for you someplace though.
Mark , Not a good way for a newbie to behave here keep it up and I can almost guarantee you will be banned . Do not send me anymore PM's they will also be reported to the staff here at AVS .
I usually welcome new members but in your case I will make an exception and not.
It seems you might need a little education to wit:
Ripping is the process of copying audio or video content to a hard disk, typically from removable media such as compact disc (CD) or DVD, although the word refers to all forms of media. Despite the name, neither the media nor the data is damaged after extraction. Ripping is often used to shift formats, and to edit, duplicate or back up media content. Digital Audio Extraction (DAE) is a more formal phrase applied to the ripping of audio CDs. A rip is the copied content, in its destination format, along with accompanying files (such as a cue sheet or log file from the ripping software).
BTW uspcaling as applied here is usually done by the playback device be it a P.C. HTPC , upscaling BD/DVD player ,game console or other device
I might just post this discourse for all to see maybe some one will get a laugh out of it
You are a funny guy not necessarily behaving very smart though.You are way out of your league here my friend
