The shaking of a single disc in the case, as long as the data-containing area is not rubbing against anything, is no problem whatsoever.

Spindle cases are fine too. Most optical discs are designed...

Discs in hard cases should be fine. They are made to be shipped to stores on trucks, in tightly packed boxes. Ordinary vibration from the road will not harm the disc. The only problem might be if the...

It'd be simpler, but DVD-Video has limitations; it's not "archival". It uses lossy MPEG-2 video with 4:2:0 color. Fast motion or high detail will get blocky. You'll need to use high bitrates for...

For 4:3 square-pixel display of NTSC captured at 720480, you've got it correct, resizing to 640480. For PAL content in a 720576 frame, you'll want to resize to 768576.

You might want to take...

AVI only supports the storage of display aspect ratio (DAR) metadata if the first 4 bytes of the file spell "AVIX" in ASCII, meaning it makes use of OpenDML extensions. Otherwise the 4th character is...

Yes, quality suffers when recommending budget gear or talking about what's "good enough", and I sympathize with having high standards in an attempt to elevate the status quo, but IMO it's not really...

If you can get that HR-S4600U for free or cheap, and you are sure it works, then just get it.

The front panel looks identical to my HR-S3600U, except mine doesn't have an extra S-Video input. I...

I'm not sure how you came to this conclusion, because it is demonstrably untrue.

If your concern is that not all formats or players will honor 15:11 DAR, that's a different issue. I agree that...

In order for the 704480 portion of the 720480 frame to be 4:3, then we must display the file with 15:11 DAR (if...

But I have the DCR-TRV480, almost the...
