I am working on a DVD encoding project and the speeds are,
not as advertized when I read April's Maximum PC Magazine.
I have TS-H653F D300 version firmware upgraded from D200 firmware.
I patched the firmware with Samsung Patch Utility 3.4.7 and removed riplock, as well as increasing both read speeds, I just selected all the boxes.
Maximum PC tested a SH-S223 with hacked firmware and got a 8:13 time out of ripping a DL dvd with AnyDVD. The SH-S223 is supposed to be the non OEM version of the TS-H653F. Otherwise I have nearly Identical hardware setup. E7200 processor, but no extra video card.
I am currently getting 15min per episode using DVD43 with Handbrake encoding to the PS3 preset with the constraint of 150MB per episode.
There are 7 episodes per disc so according to MaxPC this should only be taking 1 min 10 sec per episode.
Why am I not getting these results?
