I accidentally recorded over the Sopranos "The Strong, Silent Type" episode and need a copy for my collection. I have tried to get it via the transfer method, but I have never been able to get the full file via the internet without barfing.


Here's the deal, if someone is willing to send me this episode recorded at Medium or High quality, I will send them in return 5 blank Princo DVD-R disks.


I would like the raw unedited mpeg file (not VOB files) copied to a DVD-R disk or a Womble edited (split at a scene change) mpeg on 3 standard CD-Rs.


If you can help me out, please email me at [email protected] . Use the word "Sopranos" in the subject so I know it is not spam.


Thanks,

On www.planetreplay.com a user "zimmy6996" has it and claims to have a 1.5 Mb upload speed (must be a T1 line). If you can get him to send it to you and it barfs then chances are there is something wrong on your end. There reason I say this is because I had someone send me a show that had a T1 line and I came back 3 hours later and it was done. If your broadband connection can't maintain a constant enough connection for less than 3 hours then something is up. Its worth a try.

Thanks all!


I guy named Vic has promised to send it to me. I appreciate the responses.


As for the reason why it is barfing, I am not quite sure. It may be on my end, but I don't know. I have PacBell DSL and my connection is rock solid. I can d/l via DVArchieve without any problem. I have only tried to get it from one person. When the transfer started it ran for 16 hours (about 22%) and then died. It started again 2 days later and then died again after 4 hours. Could this be the every 2 day rebooting deal?

Actually, you can send and receive shows via DVArchive across the internet just like you can with a 4XXX/5XXX. I'm not sure if that's what mkruss is talking about, but it can be done.


I prefer to actually use the Replay because once the connection is broken with a DVArchieve transfer you need to start from scratch. At least the Replay can re-establish connections and continue from where it left off.

I realize that, but what I was saying is that I have a solid network connection and since the internet sharing feature was able to start at all, there is not a port problem on my end. Could it be that either Replay is doing a scheduled reboot? Is that not really a problem at all?

All you are really saying is you have a solid Intranet (internal) network connection. Just because you have that, doesn't mean your Internet (external) connection is good.


Even if the Replay reboots (which it shouldn't), it should pick the connection back up afterwards and continue transferring.

ReplayTV sending via the Internet does NOT use the same port as DVArchive does internally. Internet sending uses the user defined port entered on the ReplayTV unit and it has to match up to the user defined settings entered into your firewall.

No, you'd need to offload the show from your 4504 to dvarchive first.
