Testing ESB SE "Take 2" DVD right now,and I am watching it on a 65" HDTV being upconverted by my Sony BDP-S350 Blu-ray player and it looks pretty damn good to me so far(as far a a LD rip goes,it definitely does not look as good as my Blu-ray projects LOL),all I did to the video was mild clean up and IVTC and made it 16:9 anamorphic,but the SWEET thing to this is the audio,it has the Dolby Digital 5.1 ripped audio from the LD,not that crappy latter 5.1 mix,and DAMN does it sound NICE!
if this DVD checks out,these are the specs:
4.38 GB's (damn did I get lucky on this LOL)
16:9 anamorphic video @ 2.35:1 encoded at 4200 avg bitrate
Dolby Digital 5.1 @ 384kbps(untouched Laserdisc rip,Thanks to Darth Editous)
Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround @ 224kbps (untouched Laserdisc rip captured with video)
NO Menu's,Movie only,chapters,audio selectable by your DVD player remote.
and now for the HUGE Thanks to Darth Editous for the 5.1 audio file! IT SOUNDS GREAT!!!!!!!
The audio took A LOT of work but it payed off in the end,took me quit a few hours to get ESB all sync'd up and edited back together,because I got the files in LD sides,not 1 file for the whole film,so now that I have done this once already,hopefully ANH and ROTJ will not take as long.
