I did that as well, since alternate audio tracks are relatively easy.

I would caution against using Adywan’s old 1997 SE reconstruction. It was sourced from 2004-era HDTV and encoded relatively small by today’s standards. It’d be a lo-fi source to build on. If you’re able to adjust the 2011 BluRay I think you’ll find a much better end result. I have a bucket of LUTs that were provided to me for 2011 ESB if they’d be helpful. I’ll PM you about them.

I’m interested in why you seem to prefer the 2011 BluRays as a source over the 19SE. They have their pros and cons, and the former has a long history of being reviled.

Perhaps even though the unmodified 19SE is more palatable than the 2011, modified versions of each could shake that up?

In the case of ROTJ, I found the 19SE and 4K83 to cohere pretty well, far moreso than the 2011.

Well, that’s pretty cool! At a quick glance, episode 4 “Light Side” has at about 6:10 a brief clip of the key moment, “I am all the Jedi” with no dialogue or music.

I don’t know if that’d be useful for Sherlock or Faraday, but worth checking out!

I would certainly say this resource would have been very nice to have, but it doesn’t appear to immediately open up any locked doors. Could have saved some effort in the past, but that’s all right.
