midiaxe,

I don't have the ad1200, I have the ad2100! If they share the same firmware, I will let you know the version if you still want it. Just let me know.

A DVD rip is an mpeg file. TMPGEnc can be used for this purpose, but if the source was not telecined, then you cannot just convert to 23.97fps.

When you capture at 352x480 for dub down to x240, when does this translation occur? At what step is it? I saw something on different threads about averaging the two fields. Is that the idea?
