View Full Version : 6 GB TY Keys

As of this weekend, all movies that I am recording are using 6000 MB of space.

Any thoughts as to why the sudden jump in size in recordings, and whether there is anything I can do so that recordings in the future do not use so much space?

All information will be appreciated.

Btw, Series 1 SA Sony SVR-2000 with CacheCard 2.0 with 512 MB RAM, Running TY Alpha #9, rel. 14.

The quickest way to reduce size is to use an app like DVDShrink or ReJig to alter the data rate without re-encoding. The larger the file, the higher the bitrate, the better the visual quality.

The recent DVDs I've run through DVDShrink have been 90-120 minute movies using up about 6G. The usual rule of thumb is not to shrink anything to less than 90% of the source size. With high bitrate files like these, I've seen NO visible degradation, even in complex areas like skies, so you would probably have decent results. I've NOT used the quick shrink and always run the full-disc analysis.

Try DVDShrink (http://www.dvdshrink.org) on the IFO/VOB set which you generate with TyTool. If you need a tutorial, look at http://www.mrbass.org/dvdshrink/
