Brief glance on TotalMedia Theater all works fine, as far as menu navigation, by the way, Love the main menu, very nice.

Hopefully Monday or Tuesday the latest, I will have my BD50's to test it out on the "Fat" and "Slim" models of the PS3 and my Sony BDP-S350, so far it looks very promising.

Thanks Wookiegroomer, and also Thanks for going into detail on it's creation, I really appreciate that very much.

I will keep you posted.

So, has it been 'officially' released?

WG wouldn't cut me in on the beta, said he'd sent the mail and that was that, but I genuinely never got it :(

Badges?!? We don’t need no stinkin’ badges…

Just curious, but were any of the updated discs uploaded on rapidshare?

Oh man. Even with my 600 day retention account I cannot download wookiegroomer's episode 4 - 6. These were not reposted under a different name were they?

No; search for Wookie Groomer.  They were reposted in June/July, I think.

 Only Episode II and III were reposted. I downloaded Ep I. Ep II and III I will download. I think Ep VI is still possible because someone posted extra pars. But IV and V are impossible to complete. Does someone still have the rar files of Ep IV and V and is willing and able to upload some rar files and or extra par files? Or repost the whole thing if that's easier?

Strange!  I could have sworn that I saw them more recently.  My mistake! I shall have a look.  Are you sure that IV and V are unrecoverable?

I just took a peak on the newsgroups but they are all there, maybe you have to switch newsgroup provider or use another indexer....

i have used binsearch on wookie groomer, and the oldest compleet one is 456 days ago posted.

 The problem is not that I can't find them, it's the downloading part. Anything older than 350 days or so comes in beyond repair (either from a.b.starwars or a.b.hdtv). I tried 3 different newsgroup providers all with over 600 days retention.

That is odd.  I can well imagine Astraweb having that problem, but Giganews if supposed to be bettter.  At least that is what I hear.

I used eweka and had only a small repair time.

 

But i got them right after they where posted, but as far as i know the file's are not gonna be more corrupted over time.

I switched my newsgrabber around that time as Grabit gave me lot's of corrupt file's. I switched to AltBinz and it almost never gives me any corrupt file's. So maybe it's a plan to check out your corrupt download through another grabber!

 Normally I use newsleecher in combination with eweka, but I also tried Altbinz with a different provider. And yes, files deteriorate. You won't be able to download anymore.

I asumme that you're also from the Netherlands as you use a typical dutch usenet provider. I have all 6 BR discs on my NAS so if you're not to far from Rotterdam you could come over and copy them on a HD!

Can anybody confirm the source of the audio for episode 4, 5 and 6? I read WG used bit accurate audio captures from the SE LDs as a source of Darth Vader and Boba Fett's voice in his info files. But why not use the entire LD audio , I thought that was better than the 2004 DVD version or any TV broadcast.

So we wont ever get to see the Phantom Menace in glorious 4K one day all becasue eps 2 & 3 were done in video 1080p? Thats unfair as ***.

IIRC from the behind scenes the phantom menace had some small stuff shot on video?

The scene where Qui-Gon checks Anakin's blood and some of the crowd/background stuff was shot with an early version of what they used on Clones.  I'm still not sure how they're going to handle the bluray of it, whether they're scanning some print again or going back to the digital files.  I hope its the latter.

Tobor is robot spelled backwards.

Is preserving the HD broadcasts of the 2004 version of the trilogy even relevant anymore.  I mean considering the same versions will be on Blu ray, except star wars won't have the bad 2005 mix but a even worse bad mix.

No, it would be foolish to spend any time working on any project till the official release in about 1 year. There's no guarantee that the blurays will equal or surpass the cable captures because there have been many official releases that were major fails but if they do end up being great then it would be a huge waste of time. Not to mention all the new material and improved HD audio options to work with...

Any chance someone can repost at least some of the Jedi release to usenet?  I just got a Bluray burner and I was going to try to convert WG original release to Bluray compatible files.  I thought I'd visit this thread to see if anyone else had done something and I find that WG had released something months ago.

I've got nearly all the files but I'm still 90 blocks short (to many incompletions and corrupted files).
