Re: Analog recording needed for testing USB stick in DVD player
Hey djke, welcome!
I just did a quick recording - dont mind the content
, there's little choices on TV on a saturday morning.
I recorded in different quality settings so you can also check the video quality at different settings. Basically 3 settings record at 720x576 with different compression ratios for quality-filesize, and 2 settings record at 352x576 for even smaller file sizes.
Here are 2 recordings at HQ (the highest quality) and SLP (the smallest file size):http://cid-454a6850f2afc553.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/PlayonDVR-testfiles/PlayonDVRTV-recordingtest-analog-hq-35s.mpg
Recording quality setting : HQ / length 35s / 40,6mb
Video: MPEG2 Video 720x576 (4:3) 25.00fps 9800Kbps [Video (ID 224 @ Prog# 0)]
Audio: MPEG Audio 48000Hz stereo 256Kbps [Audio (ID 192 @ Prog# 0)]

These recordings were done with the analog tuner. From the playback screen, use Title Edit to copy to FAT32. In this playback screen you can also rename the recording to a meaningful name (I believe many DVDRs esp. earlier generations cannot do this). Once the files are on the FAT32, I can see it from computer (in the NAS drive). Went to Windows Live Spaces Skydrive page with Explorer, dragged and dropped the files, click upload, done. From recording to internet takes almost no effort
We'll post more video recording samples (analog, digital etc) and write about it in a blog post on the PlayonDVR blog later this week. We've been wanting to write more blog articles - I believe this makes an a good topic.
