i’m using a 20A4P drive with the latest whatever patched firmware, burning at 12x, the media brand/type escapes me, but on a quality test there’s <12pie and <3pif, they aren’t skipping or playing unreliably… but the 30% compression offers to my eyes, a big hit in image quality, then again my SD-DVD copy of transformers looks 8x worse than the HD-DVD version I have in the first place… I could be just being paranoid
For instance in the scene in the beginning of chapter 3 where they pan and zoom onto the high school building, the building has more jaggies and lacks cleanliness compared to the original (although the original doesn’t look that great either), this is playing with a PS3 at normal upscale, 1080p via HDMI cable to display
do i really need to step back to 4300mb? i’ve used 4450 for years (shrink defaults to 4464)
cant wait for the day that HD-DVD/Bluray backups are economical!
