Agree entirely, the built-in DV/Interlaced presets are horrid, I'm not quite sure what they were developed for but nothing created by a human, that's for sure.

I use Proteus-6 (the one with the...

Possibly, I'm often trying to shift several TBs of data in and out a day though.

I'm sure that many of these things can be replicated, however I work in quite a different market and can only...

I'm inclined to agree.

I'm not sure what will happen over the next few years but hardware that won't play with Windows 10 and onwards is going to look supremely unattractive for people coming into...

You'll need the service manual for your machine - I personally avoid JVC at all costs (their cachet seems, in my opinion, somewhat overinflated on here) so I'm not familiar with their procedure.

I think we're closer in agreement than you imagine - I don't watch broadcast TV and haven't for decades so I can't comment, we do have very demanding technical standards for broadcast in the UK -...

This is a great question, I'm just fiddling with it as I like working with RF and as an electronics guy this is 'right up my alley'.

To the greater point about why? - Honestly, instinctually I...

*Polite cough*


That's a bit of a disingenuous reading, I've noticed you skipped comment for the next paragraph.

I'm way too boomerish for Discord (I'm an 80s baby), I know of it but it's nothing something I've ever used. I should take a look though really.

I'm not sure what needs "re-writing" in terms of SSL? It's not a good look for a forum affiliated with web hosting, that's for sure. Let's Encrypt is free, open-source and very easy to setup.
