I noticed one area where the legacy devices excelled is incorporating the provided guide data into multiple aspects of the recording. These new ones seem to lose that information very quickly – not to mention there are too many steps to retrieve it.
Are the recording settings universal or individually set according to program?
You did a really good job explaining things, maybe a little too in-depth at times, but it was pretty easy to follow (likely easier if I didn’t watch everything on 1.5x!) You’re a smart guy and I know that many will find the extra information useful. I appreciate the time you took in making the video and am glad you shared it with us. Thanks!
The recording quality is global. So, if set, even surround sound, what you get is what it is at the time of the setting.
So, if set 1080p 10mbps (highest), your next recording of a 1080i source will be done at that highest level. Then if you reduce to the 720p recommended, the next time you record, even a 1080i source, you’ll get a 720p recording. So, it’s global. So it’s possible to change the value over time and end up with a multitude of variances for a given scheduled series (for example) if you keep changing the setting during the duration of that series season (for example).
Been a SUSE user since… well beginning of time almost.
I switched to them when I met talked with them at a conference. The fact that “we could talk” (that is, we could comprehend each other) was refreshing. Probably around the SUSE 4.x days (?) A long long long time ago. Back when that had the new USA presence (which they got rid of). I think before Red Hat even went public (?)…
