I love this thread. 😃

Yes, DVB transmissions started around 2004 IIRC, and DVD recorders were available around that year…

The only way to have an high quality OT version - but I strongly doubt it was transmitted - is a D2MAC european satellite broadcast, and a S-VHS (or other high resolution tape recorder) or a MUSE japanese satellite broadcast (using an high def master) and a W-VHS recorder… well, dream is still free - for the moment!

In Italy? Here in the UK, DVB transmissions began in the late 90s. I remember selling the DVB set-top boxes back then during my wonderful time in retail. 😉

OK, I searched all the web, from the surface to the deep, and still not found an MPEG2 version of EP1… or, better, there was at least a small version, around 9GB, but I guess there should be another - like the Cinemax ones - around 16/17GB… if someone is aware of its existence, please let me know.

Plus, it will be great to have a confirmation that there is an HDTV of the EP1 theatrical version - as it should have been broadcasted, following few scarces sources - while it seems there were no 1997 SE HDTV broadcast record - even if there are rumors that EP4 and EP5 were transmitted in UK, while EP6 was the 2004 version.

I can confirm that ITV aired IV-V-VI in 2002. I recorded EP-V onto VHS via my (SDTV) DVB set-top box during that run. I’ve still got the cassette somewhere. It was the 1997 SE version and they were all cropped to fill 16:9. The post 2004 ITV airings used the 2004 versions and as mentioned before, ITV now airs the post Disney sale versions with the revised Lucasfilm intro.

Here’s a clip from the intro to a recording of the TESB airing.

Yes, I should have been more specific! 😄

Can someone PM a location for the original trilogy? English, please. Also, are any of these files Open matte? 16x9?

In terms of aspect ratio, the OT and Phantom Menace were shot in Anamorphic Widescreen, so no “open matte” versions exist. Even the 16x9 versions would be pan and scanned. Clones and Sith were shot digitally so there might be some full 1.78:1 shots out there. I can’t confirm that though I’m just guessing. Ep 7 has some IMAX shots but is also Anamorphic I think.

Where can I get HDTV broadcasts of the DVD versions of Episodes 1-6, besides Myspleen? I looked on Usenet and all they have are broadcasts of the Blu-ray versions.

My preferred saga experience:
TPM/AOTC/ROTS (Hal 9000), ANH/ESB/ROTJ (Despecialized), The Mandalorian,
TFA (Starlight), TLJ (Fallen Knight), TROS (Resurgence).
May the midichlorians be with you.

Here’s ROTJ and if anyone wants the stats and caps for TFA when ITV HD next airs it, you’ll have to let me know. 😃

Interesting that the font for the translations is different from that used for ANH and appears to be identical to that of the 1983 theatrical.

(On a side note, looking at some of the images, it’s amazing the amount of problems that Lucas failed to fix - or to fix properly, in favour of focusing on indulging himself in other areas.)

Hello I’m looking for trilogy star wars in French HDTV format full screen imax or full screen if you have a link thank you very much

If it’s the theatrical version I seriously doubt it would be a different master than has been used in the past, so the edge enhancement will likely still be an issue.

Is it possible it could be a 35mm telecine?

It was the 2016 election…I regret this name choice

If someone with access to ORF1 could agree to record it, we could confirm this. 😃

I’m pretty sure it will be the BR version, the listed times seems to be the BR times accelerated to 25 fps (PAL standard).
Otherwise it could be the early theatrical source (that ORF1 already broadcasted in 2014) as schorman is guessing; anyway, there is no other source such as a 35mm telecine (AFAIK).

I’ll try to capture the .TS stream (unfortunately, my IPTV provider streams ORF1 at 720p, not 1080p).

Thanks, 720p is much better than nothing imho. 😃
