The hungarian crawls are included on the BD set with seamless branching[…].

Yes, I know, I have them, but I need the originals with 4:3 Pan&Scan picture, but “The Phantom menace” is the most important, because of it’s cinema version and original stereo-mixed DD2.0 sound. I have the 1995 and 1997 hungarian VHS versions and Episode 1&2, only Episode3 and the original Trilogy from 1993 are missing in my hungarian VHS collection, I have the Hungarian DVD from Episode3 and downloads from the Hungarian 1993 Versions, but I prefer original cassettes for my collection. But for the old versions of the Prequels and the Special Edition, digital TV-rips would be the same Version as on VHS, just would have a better quality. If you want, we also can talk Hungarian.


This member called X911 released in few days in EP1-3 Terrestrial analog! TVRIPs, grabbed from VHS, recorded via RTL KLUB TV-Channel and shared from small “VHS fanmade” forums.



“*A képek tetején lévő sortörés az MPC-HC hibája, nem a filmé!” (Try, it use Google translate.)

EP1 NFO text (Hungarian, try it Google translate):

A film ~34.-ik percétől 46:17-ig képhibás, amely a mellékelt “sample1.mkv”
fájlt megtekintve vehettek szemügyre…

Sample1: (V2 RIPs)
Sample2: (V2 RIPs)
Intro: (Opening Crawls and Logos. Source: V1 RIPs, not V2.)

EP2 NFO text (Hungarian, try it Google translate):


A filmet Magyar nyitószöveggel adta le a ker. tv, a 2005-ös vetítéskor.
A 2.-ik reklámblokk után, max ~4-5mp lemaradhatott a felvétel során. (0:58:14-nél.)
A stáblistát is tartalmazza a release és “szerencsére!” nincs flancos
korhatárkarika sem a filmen.

Release Notes

*Az első TV-s vetítés. (A stáblistánál látható filmet, 2005.05.22.-én adta le a TV.)
**Star Wars-os témájú RTL KLUB ajánló/Reklám Intrók és SW: EP3 Kvíz/Wekfilm előzetes. (Extras.)


Question: Puppy or CGI Yoda?

Release Notes

Az első TV-s vetítés. (A stáblistánál látható filmet, 2009.10.18.-án adta le a TV.)
És, a Nava-n is, az ekkor archivált:
A második TV-s vetítés, a Nava-n:
A harmadik TV-s vetítés, a Nava-n:
**A film végi stáblista mellett látható, hogy az “Ünneprontók ünnepe” című
film előzetese van.

Ebből, a részből, már 1 képkocka sem hiányzik a reklámblokkok miatt. Viszont, sajnos!
az a ronda korhatárkarika ott virít a sarokban.
