Thanks for working it out here, GameofThrones. Many of us who want to set up such systems appreciate knowing how others resolve the usual unexpected problems. (And please post a screenshot or two to demonstrate the quality you're getting at your various settings.)
Yeah, i am also glad, that in the end it worked out, after several days of fighting, i just needed to take a break... :-)
In the last few days i also was in "Capture-o-Rama".
i have uploaded a few Screenshot Comparisons.
Desperate Housewives - Season 1, Episode 1 (Pilot)
Hulu Capture vs. iTunes 1080p vs. Broadcasting Untouched DVR Capture.
Hulu - http://i60.tinypic.com/30ctvkm.jpg
iTunes - http://i62.tinypic.com/2q2odxj.jpg
TNT-Glitz HD Germany 1080i - http://i61.tinypic.com/2gue2ap.jpg
Ugly Betty - Season 1, Episode 6
Hulu - http://i61.tinypic.com/1zlq0kh.jpg
iTunes - http://i60.tinypic.com/2doxg3.jpg
Hulu - http://i59.tinypic.com/2eye7pv.jpg

i think it is a "Mish-Mash" - Overall, me thinks, Desperate Housewives Hulu & TNT Glitz HD Versions are slightly better than the itunes 1080p Versions,
on the other hand, me thinks, Ugly Betty iTunes 1080p Version is better than the 1080p Hulu Version.
i used x264vfw Compression in Virtualdub with CRF 12.0, High 5.1 Encoding Settings.
What i am also curious about these last few days, is about the legality of what i am doing...
i already captured a few TV Episodes on Netflix,but i think in the future i will not do this anymore, because i am breaking the law!!
what do you guys think about Capturing from Netflix, Hulu, etc.
is this legal?
Netflix - Terms & Conditions
this is the first Rule i am breaking
and the 2nd Rule i am breaking is, that i am using VPN to access Contents in Netflix USA.
