As far as I'm aware Uverse doesn't carry 22.2 correct? If they do it's certainly not in HD. This sucks.

I have a theory that the vertical line anti image retention thing on this set can actually cause a burned in vertical line pattern, due to the way the screen brightens/darkens at certain positions of...

You know what I'm wondering? All that hiss isn't just random noise. It's the actual digital signal of the audio, converted into an uncompressed wav stream. I bet there's a way to create a program...

umm, you can capture AC3 over HDMI. I do it all the time. Is that device supposed to be a transcoder as well or something?

What about on PS3? That has a choice for both as well at the system level.

I wouldn't be too bothered about capturing in LPCM or even DTS, but no way I'm paying $1k for a capture device, lol. I just find it absolutely perplexing that the consumer devices seem to have...

Does anybody know of any capture devices that allow better bitrate than the HD PVR 2 (like 18mbps+), but also supports 5.1 Dolby Digital capture like the HD PVR 2? Everything I find seems to be...

I think the tray tool is just so that if you press the button on the actual device, it'll load up HC and start recording automatically

While you are mostly correct, lower quality sources do tend to require less bits to encode them properly, because existing prior compression creates certain patterns in the image that are easier to...

Might be fine for cable, but I capture video game footage with this. 1080p30, with an uncompressed digital HDMI source signal. While it works okay about 75% of the time, 18mbps would have been far...

I'm sorry, but 14mbps was already too low for 1080p30. For 1080p60, they need MUCH more than 16mbps. I'd say bare minimum 25mbps.

And you know what? These capture devices should have an option...

I just said, 1080i can be captured at 60Hz. 1080p can't. The HD PVR2 cuts out half of the frames when capturing 1080p, so your PS3 and Roku are outputting 1080p, cutting half the frames.


This is...

Okay well if it's outputting 1080i, then you can still get 60 images per second, although it's stored in a 30fps interlaced file. However, as long as your player has a good deinterlacer, it should...

Yes it does. The HDPVR2 can only record 1080p at 30fps, so it takes that 60Hz signal, and cuts out half of the frames. Considering that 60Hz signal already contained a 24fps source pulled down to...

Almost every device sends a 60Hz signal to TVs, including cable boxes. If you're getting a 60fps file, then it's probably a 720p signal, since the HD PVR 2 doesn't capture 1080p at 60fps, and 1080i...

While that used to be true, most newer devices today can output 1080p60 over component. Even the PS3 which came out in 2006 can do this.

I was referring to how you mentioned 3:2 pulldown via interlacing for displaying 24fps content over 60hz. Interlacing isn't necessary.

Also, you're going to need to capture via HDMI for 24hz, and most Blu-ray players will use copy protection to block you from capturing via HDMI

I think a Blu-ray player would be more likely to play back VUDU content at 24Hz, but I wouldn't guarantee it. I know PS3/PS4 play back all apps and games at 60Hz. They only play actual Blu-rays at...

That's exactly what I've been saying. The original movie is 24fps, but the app uses 3:2 pulldown to display it at 60hz, and then the capture device chops half of those frames off. In the end you get...

Yes different apps can have different outputs, and like I said, it would have originally been 1080p60, which the HDPVR samples down to 1080p30, which causes a lot more noticeable judder. If you...

I believe most devices output Netflix and those other apps at 60Hz, which the HDPVR2 converts down to 30fps at 1080p. I know PS4 does this. Theoretically some devices may be capable of outputting at...
