Texas Rising is available as MP4. Messing with a DVR is the pits, and I'd only bother when something isn't readily available in a more convenient format.

MP4 downloads of primetime network shows are generally superior to DVR recordings or even retail DVDs. The reason is because the resolution is better, and the H.264 bitrate allocation is better than MPEG. Texas Rising is available as a 720p download.

It's all the non-new and new non-primetime (non-common) shows where you need a DVR, retail DVD, etc. Downloads are not available for this "unpopular" content. For example, pretty much anything from Cartoon Network.

Historically, I've been very anti-download, but that was many years ago. Remember that the ultimate goal of collecting is to get the best quality available.

Robotech is from the 80s, so I'm not surprised.

Do you mean this? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Werewolf_%28TV_series%29. That's also from the 80s, and would look terrible.

We're talking apples and oranges here.

I agree, anything pre-2005 looks like crap, and anything non-network and non-primetime from post-2005 looks like crap. You need to DVR or find/buy DVDs for anything else. Only new stuff is excellent, be it from legit sources like iTunes/Amazon/Hulu, or otherwise.

A very few times, you can find an older show in excellent quality, on the official sites like Hulu. Before they encrypted it, I got quite a few great shows from Hulu, like The Munsters Today and Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures (cartoon).

Texas Rising is a current 8-part miniseries. It has awesome 720p quality available online.

x264/MKV is the way to go as far as downloading goes.
I wish we could share our private links to get episodes faster including whole VOB files so we can make our sets.
Our own private links and not links from other sites. It might spark some more activity. Don't want to become another downloading site. Members still must be active set creators or traders.

Maybe members can share accounts for cost reasons.
For example, maybe LS and I would share and split the cost of an uploaded.net 1 year membership. We could upload our sets and make them available for download if anybody needs an episode.
Make them private so they don't get taken down.
Give access to the url when needed by a member with a one or two time password.

Other members could do the same.

Just a thought.

I make MKV sets now on DVD-R's just like my old sets, with case, cover & disc art.
I still also make VOB sets too. Sometimes that's just the best way to go in some cases.
