Knight Rider restoration

I appreciate you checking this for me. It’s quite possible that it could be a red herring, Wiki is prone to inaccuracies.

I have to say though, that this brings back memories of a TV version I had recorded a long time ago, where scenes were missing, and some were all out of sequence, in particular around the time where Michael had fallen asleep at the wheel. If I come across this on my VHS tapes at some point (which is doubtful to be honest) it might have that scene!

It’s been decades but I’m certain that when the pilot aired on Thames TV in '83, it was the TV movie version rather than a two parter. You might be interested in this discussion of ITV and C5 airing cut versions of K.R. during the 80s and 90s respectively: http://knightrideronline.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=18128 😃

Thanks. 😃

I know, not always most the reliable source, but it claims during the casino sequence (I think) in part one…

‘There is also an extra scene featuring Willie Nelson’s rendition of Elvis Presley’s “Always On My Mind” featured in television screenings, but not on the DVD version.’

However I think it’s more than likely they are using copies from the same source as both channels are under the same umbrella company (at least that’s my understanding anyway).

You’re thinking of the other channels (5STAR, My5 etc.) under the 5 umbrella that all belong to Viacom.

Forces TV is owned by an entirely different organisation. http://www.ssvc.com/#about-ssvc 😃

Since you’ve been recording, I have a question, does the TV airing of Knight of the Phoenix contain the Willie Nelson rendition of, “Always on my Mind” that apparently was omitted from the DVD version?

Have you checked the Spike transmissions? 😃

They’re showing the first season daily and S1 EP3 is set to air at 11:45 this morning.

Dealing with People Selling Fan Projects

oojason said:

For me, the ot.com is a little like Bespin in the Empire Strikes Back, we’re a small outfit that goes under the nose of the Empire re the releases that feature on here - we need to keep it that way (though no deals 😉)…

On that note, it doesn’t help when, well meaning but misguided individuals, promote the fan projects on another SW site, where, the response to these efforts has always been at best, tepid and members of that site, even go as far as expressing their unhappiness about this work being carried out without consent from Lucasfilm/Disney.

Babylon 5 - Broadcast NTSC (4:3)?
Time

I suspect JMS was thinking of the PAL masters that were used to produce the European VHS releases. If that was the case, perhaps WB did so because of the 625 line advantage?

The A-Team Broadcast Restoration

Yeah, I’ve got all those channels on Freeview. Viacom own Spike and CH5, hence the crossover in programming. I just saw a Forces TV promo for The A-Team on Monday nights, so that’s another potential lead, in case they’re using a different source.

Wow! Thanks for the low down, looks like I saved myself some time and hard drive space.

Replacement music and then massacred for daytime TV broadcast. The content was only ever PG rated, at the very worst and I’ve seen racier stuff shown during the same time slot on other channels.

This doesn’t make me hopeful for when Spike starts airing Knight Rider.

Babylon 5 - Broadcast NTSC (4:3)?
Time

Over a year on, just wondered, has there been any progress on this?

Yesterday, Pick (UK/Europe) aired the original version of The Gathering and in 4:3. This made me hopeful that they’d also screen the 4:3 versions of the series - and I was ready to record the whole run, but alas, they’re using the same source as the DVDs.

How to capture HDCP-encrypted HDMI sources (Vudu, Netflix, Directv, Virgin Media, etc.)

I went with the UltraStudio Mini Recorder and so far, so good. Now, I need a HDCP stripper that works with 1.4a. Can anyone recommend one? The ViewHD is 1.3 and my PVR is 1.4a, so I need something more recent and I’m wary after looking through countless reviews for these devices and seeing warnings by people who had their HDMI ports blown by these removers.

I have the ViewHD and it’s been working just fine. Not to mention I have friends who use it too.

Ok but are you capturing from devices with HDMI 1.4 and above? Does it remove the HDCP on those?

I’m truly amazed by these socks. They’re so lazy.

Lazy and because of their laziness, easy to sniff out. 😄

Literally one of the first things Disney said upon acquiring Lucasfilm just over five years ago was that the Star Wars universe has “over 25,000 years of history.”

This would only lend more credence to someone’s theory upthread about Rian’s trilogy being about the origins of the Jedi, which is pretty much exactly what I’ve been wanting them to do.

Everything must be explained. Nothing can be left up to the individual’s imagination. And it’s all canon, CANON, CANON.

If this trilogy has anything to do with the origins of the Jedi/Sith, I’m out. I’m sick of this crap.

good…dont let the door hit you on your way out 😃

Share your good news!
Time

Recently I attended my annual progress review and the panel decided that, “judging by the depth and quality” of my research, that surpassed what they, “would’ve expected from someone at such an early phase in a PhD programme”, there could be no doubt whatsoever about my progression to the next stage of the doctorate.

I’ve been urged to, “present and publish” at my earliest opportunity. This news has come as a great relief because at some points over the past 12 months, I had a very difficult time and feared that I might wash out of the programme with an MPhil.

Should get through this by the end of the weekend. A short read and yet very informative.

Knight Rider is currently airing on Forces TV and Spike also looks set to air it imminently.

It’s not in HD but still might be worth checking out in case they’re using the sources you need.

Ah, I wish I’d known sooner about the issue with the Pilot. It was recently aired on Channel 5, in HD and 4:3. I could’ve checked…

Stephen King’s IT, Page 423 of 1041. (7 pt. font on Universal Book Reader for Android. Physical book is in storage.)

which font family?

I can’t tell if that’s a serious question. E-Readers usually have multiple selectable fonts.

it wasn’t?

I also don’t understand why you would buy the physical book, but not read it. Reading a physical book is usually faster (according to the random research i have seen, google it yourself). Maybe if RayRogers was reading the book he would be done by now :p

That is intended to be good natured ribbing by the way.

Usually on the bus getting to work and also campus. Even bought the book well over 20 years ago, it’s in storage, and that’s just too much shit to lug around all day, everyday.

Also reading: Who Gives a Flying Fuck? by Handy Wankstein III.

No. That attitude towards fellow members isn’t on - and you’ve been warned about your attitude before.

Enjoy some time off from the site - I hope you use it wisely and improve on the attitude - as you are a decent poster without it…

Fair enough.
