I second that emotion. It has a ton of great info and it sucks having to go look for it when I need to look something up. Kudos, benes.

It's probably best for you to give up while you're behind. Darin contributes a ton of information and knowledge to this site and it would behoove you to listen to what he has to say. If you pay attention, you just might learn something.

Interesting thing is, he hasn't PM'd me. Because he doesn't care about information, he cares about character assassination. Mainly because I support HD DVD, and I'm not going to play that game with him whether he likes it or not.

Full Disclosure:


I've met Darin personally and I can say without a doubt that he's not the type of person who would attack someone's character nor is he mean spirited in any way. He's an audio video fan with few hatchets to bury.


I think for the sake of "discussion" many of us are more agressive online than we would be in person.


I appreciate the conversion and debate here in this thread. Just keep it on topic and free of personal attacks and the mods can leave it as is and we all can decide for ourselves what point or points we agree most with. All the best

Can a mod please sticky this?? Maybe make a new thread without all of the arguing. The BD section has theirs stickied and its much more up to date. I would be willing to add the HD DVD titles I have if we keep this updated.

If the bickering continues, will have to review again

Did these 3 tonight. I don't know how to calculate the bitrates though.

Could someone please explain what, if any, impact seamless branching has on video bitrate ceilings?


Thanks.

Thanks.

I don't think seamless branching has any impact on bitrate: the rules are more regarding how far away the two things are as I recall. Or maybe we are talking about different things: what exactly are you referring to in this?


However multi-angle does have an impact of course.

A few people finally asked for it so here it is.
For the Calculated Video Bitrates I used the same methodology as my blu-ray list. But since HD DVD streams have less overhead I believe these numbers to be more accurate. However things like IME and TrueHD throw a monkeywrench into the calcuations because of their variable bitrates. But I have used the numbers provided by our old friend cjplay and as far as I can tell they are very accurate. I think that the video bitrates are accurate to within + or - 1Mbps.


One of the main reasons for these lists is to show the audio specs which are not otherwise easily available. For the "advanced codecs" here are the conclusions I have come to:


Warner uses 16bit/48khz TrueHD (lossless)

Universal uses 24bit/48khz TrueHD (lossless)

Studio Canal uses 16bit/48khz DTS-HD Master Audio (lossless)

The few DTS-HD High Resolution tracks we have are 24bit/48khz (lossy)


The one thing I have no way of figuring out is what the sampling rate is on the 1.5Mbps DD+ tracks. I have heard claims of all three (16bit, 20bit, and 24bit). Perhaps someone in the know can shed light on this.


For the 640Kbps DD+ tracks I'm pretty sure they are 16/48 just like regular AC3 tracks at the same bitrate.

Happy to oblige.

DTS has many flavours.

DTS Core Audio is at either 1509 KBPS or 768KBPS, and can be from 16/20 or 24 bit audio with a sample rate of 48KHz.

All DTS decoders can decode these streams.

DTS-HD gets confusing.

What you have are the following:

DTS-HD Core Audio - see above.

DTS-HD High Resolution 7.1 or 5.1 can have a bit depth of up to 24 (preferred) and a bit rate of either 2046, 2304, 2559, 2814 or 3018Kbps.

Sample rate can be 48KHz or 96KHz.

DTS-HD MAS is a true, VBR lossless stream with a built-in DTS core at up to 1509Kbps, so the stream is fully backwards compatible.

One of the great secrets of DTS encoding is that the resulting file always sounds better from a 24 bit source.


As far as DD and DD+ goes - the same applies. Encode from a 24 bit source, and the results are allegedly better. The file will still be exactly the same.

I always encode even "regular" DD from 24 bit source files, never mind DD+.

(Still not really sure about the point of DD+. Regular DD can encode at up to 640kbps already - but DTS is superior anyway.


Hope this helps!


EDIT

Why anybody would bother using 16 bit Audio for a DTS encode is beyond my comprehension!

thank YOU benes for providing this list. i was actually looking through it to find only the truehd movies =P. i plan to grow my HD DVD collection with TrueHD movies and then wait for the rest of the titles on the list to double dip with TrueHD later on
. so here's a list of HD DVD's copied from your list with TrueHD that i plan to acquire 1by1. so far i have none from this list.
