HTTP link being held for a bit, torrent is the best way.


http://thepiratebay.org/tor/3666592/AudioTestDVDv2 Here is the torrent for it. It would be faster for everyone if ppl used this instead. I have my 1mb line at home and work running it right now. (both T1's)

I already have the file complete, how can I seed it into this torrent?

Tell your torrent program to save the file to the same location where it is already present on your hard drive. Then it should check the file to make sure it matches the torrent, and then it'll seed.

I did the same thing earlier.

You need to make sure your firewall isn't preventing you from connecting.

Damn it wouldnt work for me. I'm using Azureus.

Edit: Got it to work! Have fun leeching and remember to seed!

I use bitlord and its pretty much install and go. IMO its the most user friendly one.
post #190 of 300
I'm back. Apparently the high winds on monday actually _disconnected_ the cable from the splitter on the telephone pole. In any case I'll have the http link up later today.
post #191 of 300
Here is the direct HTTP link:

http://annapolisesa.com/avs/dvd/AudioTestDVDv2.iso

I might have to shut it down if I go over my 1.2 tB limit. Have fun!
post #192 of 300
I've also put up a direct http link to help with the initial seeding.
I'll also need to watch as I have a 4.5 terabyte limit on bandwidth per month. I should be OK for a week or so. Download speed should be pretty decent as it is on a commercial ISP server.

Between the two html links and the torrent participants we should be fine. (I'm seeding the torrent too)

The link is here:

http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/downloads/AudioTestDVDv2.ISO Sorry, but the direct download is not in place any longer.

First, a big thank you to soho for spending so much time creating this.

On the other hand, has anyone been able to play this in PowerDVD 7.3? I only get 4 seconds of black screen without any menu options.

it works in PowerDVD version 4.0 on my PC. Can't help you with the newer 7.3 version as I don't own anything newer than 4.0.

It works with PowerDVD 4-5-6, in XP. I don't have a the newer version.

It should work in any DVD player. That is odd.

Am downloading on ftp as we speak, using FileZilla. All new stuff to me but everything so far has gone exactly as directed. I am humbled by the geniuses here....
post #197 of 300
IT's awesome..I downloaded it yeseterday.. then I also stole a couple of he Demo DVD's....


What speed are you downloaded at?
post #198 of 300
It stayed around 274 kb/s and took about 23 min. for the Audio Test DVD. I have a couple of free programs that I've (barely) used before that work well...DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink but I have to run out and buy some blank DVDs. I'm marveling at it right now but I am just getting started.
Oops, I forgot...I downloaded ImageBurn and will try that instead of Decrypter.

Is there a nice, printable table of contents in PDF or in the form of an amaray case jacket?

I'm looking forward to using this once I get my new receiver.

Thanks for all the effort! That is a nice bit of work.

Great job!

The DVD is done. See the FP for info.


Here's the thing, I need for someone to check the 2.0 Mono sweeps out for me. On my original there is no problem, but I have had someone mention a static like sound when playing them on a downloaded copy. These sweeps and the tones in that section are the only true mono wavs on the disk. I am hoping it is just his setup not handling them well.

I just want to make sure it wasn't a bad disk, I sent swithey.
post #202 of 300
I ran all the 2.0 Mono sweeps with no "static sound" problem. The "left" and "right" sweeps work perfectly. But when I selected the "both" option, only the left speaker worked. Anyone else have this happen?

Thanks for checking it out for me. I feel better now.

I have tested audio on different yamaha, sony, and onkyo AVRs with no problems. I have ran the dvd through several PCs, several sony, JVC, apex, no name dvd players, and my PS2&3 with no problems.

I wanted to be able to test AVRs out with the disk, but not in this way. The mono wav should be split up and sent to both Left and Right channels at full volume, so that it should be 6dB louder than a Left or Right sweep by itself. It should read as LPCM 2.0 768Kbps.
post #204 of 300
I discovered the problem is with my Pioneer DVD player or the Technics decoder that it's connected to. The 5.1 tests all work with this system. I tried the 2.0 sweeps on my upstairs Sony system and they work perfectly. Maybe it's time for a "downstairs system" upgrade.

Thanks soho54,

Fantastic DVD!

I've been looking for LFE test tones for a long time, and when I find your thread the DVD is already released

This has allowed me to experiment with the mysterious LFE Crossover Frequency setting in my Denon 3806. Finding that it has no impact whatsoever on tones and sweeps in the LFE channel, leaving it even more mysterious (or useless).

Thanks also to the guys for hosting the iso.

LOL, this is great. This is exactly what I did this for. Now everyone can figure out exactly what their bass management really does. There is way to much mis-information out there, and I lot of the stuff that is taken as a known fact really isn't. Hopefully this disk will clear a little of it up. This is why I focused on the lower frequencies on all the DD channels. Now you can really figure out what your Sub and LFE xover is doing.

I expect a lot of people will find odd stuff like this, and Uklit's problem.

I need to change my comment about Powerdvd 7.3 not working. It does, but not when you mount the dvd image in daemon tools. I burnt it to a DVD-r and it now works perfectly.

i mounted it with alcohol 120% and it works for me in vlc player, but in windows media player classic the audio is all screwed up, could be because of ffdshow though.
to the op, thanks for the dvd!
post #210 of 300
Hey,
I just got the DVD. Thanx to all that made it possible. Its a great test tool for any HT, big or small.

One question to all though. In 5.1 tests, when you test the levels and you have a choice of each chanel, when i go to LFE, i got no sound. The only way i get the sub to output is when I select MAINS or LEFT or RIGHT, only then the sub is mixed in that test. Any ideas on how i can isolate the sub to be on its own ( or is it possible?)

Im running the tests using Pioneer VSX1015 - sub out, Y spiltter to a powered sub L and R inputs.
Thnx
