Team Negative1 - The Empire Strikes Back 1980 - 35mm Theatrical Version (Release Details and Updates)
Time

I got hold of the 720p mkv version of the Renegade Grindhouse in the end (from usenet). It doesn’t seem to have any glitches towards the end after all, which the original 1080p mkv file suffered from.

However, I can’t get it to fit on a dual layer DVD disc despite this version having “DVD9” in the filename. I know that it won’t fit if converted to AVCHD format (which needs more room than just a raw mkv file), but I am simply trying to burn the raw mkv and it already seems too big. The mkv file I have is 8,724,585,522 bytes and ImgBurn tells me the capacity of my Verbatim DVD+R DL discs is only 8,547,991,552 bytes. I believe a number of posters in this thread have succeeded; what’s the trick?!

A 720p version of the ESB Renegade Grindhouse was uploaded to usenet by “MrNiceGuy” about 2 years ago. I’m interested in acquiring this as it fits on a DVD9.

If anyone has it, please could you confirm if it has the same glitches which were reported in the original “1080p BD25 mkv” release? (And how bad were these glitches anyway? I have only seen the ISO version.)

The version uploaded on the paradoxical site is sadly the slightly corrupted one (with 11 bytes wrong out of 37GB!). I discovered this by comparing the SHA-1 checksum with that listed on page 153 of this thread. It can easily be fixed by “force checking” against the torrent on the spleen. I don’t know whether or not the slightly corrupted version can be burned and played successfully on a standalone Bluray player. Perhaps it can, and those 11 bytes don’t matter in the slightest?
