Title: Taping All 120 Episodes (If You Are Interested, READ)
Post by: Olmec on August 11, 2006, 06:05:33 PM
I have recently been interested in the project of taping all 120 episodes of Legends of the Hidden Temple. I have thought of the timeline of September 1st to October 30th (because 2 episodes a day, 60 days, 120 episodes). Well, I did all the copy pasting from my Legends log. The first episode should be The Treasure Map of Jean Laffite, & the last one being The Dried Apple Half of William Tell. I made up the list of the episodes, but realizing the pattern of the 2 month rotations, they rotate the episodes (like the next time today's episodes are on, the Blue Pearl of the Dragon Lady will be first, the Cracked Crown of the Spanish King being second). If you want me to post the list (without all the order changes), I'll be happy to do it. So get those tapes ready!!!!!

I'd like uploads of the episodes, if anyone can do that. :)

Damn, I've only got basic cable.  Yes, I know I'm a loser.

I think that I also might tape all the episodes of Legends of the Hidden Temple.

Actually, I think my list might be right, for some portion of it, but it has all 120 episodes, so I'm happy. I don't know how to transfer the VHS data to the DVD, then upload them on the CPU. I wish I could, just for you guys :'(

I've asked some friend about it; they suggested WinTV.

It's a peripheral that allows recording of TV, DVD, and Video Tape as a video file. Not sure what kind, but it's gotta be one compatible with most computers.

The bad news? It retails for about seventy bucks. But if you're serious about video editing, it's a necessity.

Get a WinTV PVR-150. :wink:

BTW, it's called a TV Card, or a PVR Card, depending on which one you have. :)

I have one. It's how I got Temple Run videos onto here. :wink:

Speaking of which, how come you haven't posted links to any more Temple Runs in the last few weeks?

I was wondering that too, and I've been trying to watch a lot of them as much as I can, to keep them from expiring.

I've been taping for the past month or so, and already managed to gather something like half the series, the lousy part is I have to move back to school in 2 weeks and in the process no longer have access to nick gas, which means the next time I can tape anything will be winter break  :cry:

Just as a pointer, I tried doing this with another show when I was younger (fine, it was the Pokemon cartoon   :roll: ), and after about the first 10-20 episodes, it became the biggest pain in the butt ever. The transfer to the computer has to be done in real time (so ~1 hour per day of episodes) and you really shouldn't be doing anything else on your computer at the time, then editing out the commercials, then encoding to whatever final form you want the episodes to be in...

Just make sure you have lots of time and lots of drive space. Oh, and I highly recommend all of the WinTV cards for TV tuners, they do what's called hardware encoding which just takes some of the strain off your computer.

i agree 100% with the above post. capture it in real time! (as some of you may see, my digital encodes are wayy better than my VHS ones). But it is somewhat time consuming but, well worth it!
