I captured these when they originally aired using a Sony Digital-8 camcorder and transferred them via the Firewire to my PC… I believe D8 is 720x480. Not sure if I still have the original transfers, but I think I put them on DVD as individual episodes and my own version of a single movie. Useful for reference?

This is super helpful if you can get this uploaded!

PM me a place to upload and I’ll send you the images I have…

Ideas on ripping iTunes Extras
Time

I’ve been looking for the last week too… I was upset when I discovered that my iTunes purchase of The Force Awakens doesn’t include the ability to download the iTunes Extras! I’ve tried a number of apps on my iPad, as well as some of the known PC tools with no luck yet. Not that I need them downloaded, but now I’m so pissed that I’m making it a mission of mine to figure this out.

Kenner Commercials DVD (Released)

Ok so this DVD did get made, by me. Unfortunately my 'client' wanted some time to be able to ship these around to the big collectors before the rest of us could get our hands on them.

If you have a search around on google, it seems as though someone has uploaded it.

 One of my favorite collections... Great work DJ.  Any chance of a V2 Release?  I may have some upgraded quality recordings of a few ads.  I'm sure I'm not the only one.  

Also, anyone have the link to the original disc and case artwork?  Also, was there an DVD insert?

Info & Help Wanted: CBS News re-broadcasts of the assassination of JFK...
Time

CBS News has been live streaming some amazing, high quality footage as part of their 50th anniversary of the JFK.  Most of this stuff has never been seen since its original broadcast, and it’s doubtful that it will ever be broadcast again. I’m working on capturing as much as I can to put this into a preservation, but the stream is wonky and I get disconnects occasionally, resulting in gaps.  I might be able to fill in gaps from other footage on YOUTUBE, but the quality is far inferior.  Anyone else capturing?  Perhaps we can piece together a quality release of the entire 4 days.  So far, I’m aware of one other… Between the two of us we have day 1 and 2 about 80-85% captured.

Star Wars Holiday Special - WHIO 1st Gen VHS Preservation (Released)
Time

Definitely one of the best off air copies I've seen to date.  The image is very sharp, stable and not overly-saturated.  If its not an original recording, its a very good 1st generation dub. Don't know a lot about the HR-S7100U but it seems to have done a pretty good job.  Does it have a time-based corrector built in?  Any chance of getting someone on the forum with a professional deck to squeeze out whatever quality is left for version 2?  I really enjoyed seeing the original opening again (Hulk & Wonderwoman)!  It certainly reminded me of the excitement I had watching this 35 years ago. I appreciate you posting this!

PS78: Pre-ANH Star Wars Bootleg VHS from 1978 ***"RAW" DVD RELEASED***
Time

I can offer my Panasonic AG-1980 if this turns out to be of actual interest.  '79 is a bit late for a film dub.  If "close the blast doors" is on it, that would be of some interest since I don't think there are many period grabs with the mono mix.

Out of curiosity, are there any companies still making VCRs with time-based correctors?  Checked B&H and their VCR pickings are slim.

Info Wanted: Walter Cronkite's 'Universe' Visits ILM - a better version?
Time

Williarob said:

Does anybody here have a better version of this? If you have seen the little featurette that aired on CBS in 1984 as part of the network TV premiere of Star Wars, you may have spotted a clip of Walter Cronkite meeting with George Lucas. I was able to track down one copy of the whole segment on YouTube, but the quality is not good. If anyone knows of a better source, please let me know.

Thanks!

Have you checked the EditDroid Special Features set?  Also, didn't SW.COM put out a version of this on their website too?

Thorr's 35 mm Star Wars Trilogy SE Trailer WQHD Restoration (Part-Finished)

...alternate Jabba shot? Do tell. Does that mean they used a different model, or a different point in the sequence to highlight?

It's the shot of Jabba and Han further along in the conversation... "Han my boy"...

I do need to check if the Sansweet roadshow trailer effects were complete though.  I know he showed some clips of Jabba being designed on the computer prior to the trailer being shown.  Looks like the trailer is on TWC301 - tread well collection too.
