How to capture HDCP-encrypted HDMI sources (Vudu, Netflix, Directv, Virgin Media, etc.)
Time

The Avermedia HD DVR captures from any HDMI source if you use a hacked firmware

You can get the hacked firmware here

I use amarectv to capture in 1080i with AMV2 codec or if you preffer you can use UTvideo codec.

Just finished DL-ing V2, and I am very impressed with the quality.

As I was watching, it hit me that this version could be interesting with a few tweaks. First off, a conversion to 23.97 fps would take out the "video" look (Like they did with the Zion Hybrid).

I have tried it before, and it loses fields in the video, thus I kept it at 29.97fps.

Obviously going from 30 to 24 frames means something has to be discarded. It's what gives film its look, the jerkiness of motion.

Again, this is not something I am terribly knowledgable about, but going from interlaced to progressive 30 fps before doing the conversion would be the natural first step, no? Meaning you drop frames, not fields, which is what I am after.

What is the "proper" procedure for downsampling from 30i to 24p fps?

 

This is not originally film, was recorded pure interlaced 29.97fps ,  there is no way to convert to 24fps without losing motion.

Are you using Avisynth MT i guess :P

Be careful with FF3dfilter dont abuse it or the image will be full of jaggies.  Second QTMC convert it to 59.976 fps , are you using SelectEven / SelectOdd to put it to 29.976 progressive?  This video is pure interlaced so it will never be very smooth like the original source if you deinterlace it.

Is better if you use

separatefields()
selectevery(4,0,3)
weave()

This come at the end of the script to convert it again to 29.976 interlaced.
Always work in Avi without compression i recommend you Lagarith.

Is this version available too??

 That's the WBBM-TV 2 Chicago version.  I haven't added it to the list yet.

There's also a WCAU-TV 10 Philadelphia version, and a newly-discovered Seattle TV version.

Frankly, I'm pretty amazed at how many different versions have turned up, considering how rare VCRs were back in 1978.  I'm sure there were a number of copies that were lost, too.

Do you have links for that two version, i want to check it out , specially the cartoon part..  :D

And just for your eyes.. the 2 avisynth scripts i used

First i use this to deinterlace and encode into avi without compression

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

SetMTMode(2,8)
mpeg2source("holiday_special.d2v")

SetMTMode(2)

ConvertToYV12()
QTGMC( Preset="very slow", NoiseBypass=1, NoiseRestore=0.0, Sharpness=1.8)   
selecteven()

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 

After that i used this one for post processing on the uncompressed avi

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

SetMTMode(2,8)
import("C:\Program Files (x86)\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\Stab.avs")

avisource("Holiday_special_pre_01.avi")

SetMTMode(2)
ConvertToYV12()

mergechroma(aWarpSharp(depth=20.0, thresh=0.75, blurlevel=2, cm=1))
unblend()
stab()
decimate()

SetMTMode(2)
Convolution3D (preset="animeLQ")
FFT3DFilter(sigma=2)
warpsharp(10,1)
LSFmod(strength=220)
GradFun2DBmod()

ColorYUV(gain_u=3)
Tweak(sat=1.3,  hue=-8, cont=1.4, bright=-2)

FastLineDarkenMOD(thinning=0, strength=80)

crop(12,2,-8,-8)
lanczosresize(704,528)

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 

Too bad i still can't encode , i need to reinstall Windows on my PC and im planning to do it soon.. stay tune :D
