    Are there torrents yet of HD-DVD backups? Of course when you own the original DVD. If not, Blu-Ray?

    Well; according to the news article a little while ago; there's supposedly somebody that has a software out that can backup HD-DVD Discs [no specifics on blu-ray though; not sure...]; although I doubt that anyone has got any out as torrents [yet].


    ....Currently; I'm pretty sure all that's out there right now for HD rips is stuff that was captured off of television. [i.e. captured off of HD broadcast channels]

    There has been HD Warez for a long time now. I cant comment on torrents, becasue i dont use them. But many of my sources (Ie Usenet,and private ftps) have many HD rips. Note that Most of the HD rips are from PVRs, so there not Hd-DVD copies. But since HD-DVD security has been compromised, you can expect to see them soon. Sofar i have not seen a true HD-DVD for DL. And 15GB is alot, but if you have good access (No torrents) you can DL this in 2-3 hours.

    @Bigperm88: What do you use for playback of h.264 encoded HD *.ts files?

    I can't speak for Bigperm88, but I use CoreAVC (legally purchased) with Media Player Classic. Flawless playback (no stutter) of 1080p/i H.264 .ts @ 20 MBit/Sec average with MBAFF interlacing on my X2 4600. Just thought I'd butt in :p

    wow. 19+ Gigs. 201 files x 103mb. Uploaded in 10 hours @ 599 KB/s

    Sry for the late reply, been to busy to check forums. I use CoreAVC as well (I think, gotta double check when i get home) with VLC player. And i also experience great playback, with no shutters on a P4 3.4

    AFAIK vlc uses it's own decoders, so if you have CoreAVC installed then it won't be being used.

    alt.binaries.hdtv and alt.binaries.hdtv.repost
    assuming that's what your asking!

    EDIT: Slightly O/T, but 'Serenity', 'Pitch Black', 'Superman Returns', 'Equilibrium', 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang', 'Huo Yuan Jia' and 'Miami Vice' HD-DVD rips have been posted to abhdtv so far. Also 'The Mummy', 'Mission Impossible 3' and 'Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut' are being posted as we speak. Didn't take long did it!

    once you get the file what do you do with it? I have the xbox360 hd dvd player, would I play it using Power DVD and stream it to the xbox or what? or do you guys who are watching these have HD computer monitors or something?

    I would say that most people use PowerDVD and their graphics card to output directly to their TV. This is from one of the nfo's that came with a HD-DVD rip:
    BTW, all computer monitors are HD, that is, higher than 480/576p. That's what makes them different from TVs.
