  1. What Games Are You Currently Playing?

    I am now playing .hack//Quarantine on my PS3 and Pokemon UltraSun on my 3DS.
  2. why h.264 better then h.265 in Koto no ha no niwa

    At this point, H264 is always better than H265. The reason being, H265 apparently just has better compression, but at the loss of quality.
  3. Ordered Chapters removal

    You should be able to remove them with mkvtoolnix's MKV Merge GUI. Just load up the file and remove the checkmark next to the item with the Type called "Chapters". The newer versions even have a Chapter Editor. Once the chapters part is removed, just click Start multi-plexing and it will make a new file without the chapters.
  4. How can you tell when something is re-encoded?

    File size is definitely NOT an actual good way to determine if something is re-encoded. As the previous user stated, you can have a video that was re-encoded with a high bitrate, that could potentially be higher than the original source, which could produce unnecessary bloat in file size. Increasing the bitrate on any existing encode is pointless, since you will lose quality, rather than gain it. It would be a lot easier to identify if encoding programs actually keep track of how many times a video is encoded and it would read that value and add one for each pass to add to the newly re-encoded file. That likely won't happen, though, just like people likely won't come clean on whether or not a video they post has been re-encoded or not.
  5. Does an Ocean Dub of Kai really exist?

    If you are referring to DB Kai, yes, it does. It is the version that airs in Canada. For the first part of it, it also aired in the US on the CW's Toonzai block. There are no DVDBD releases with it, though, since it was recorded exclusively for TV broadcast. The best way to tell the difference between the dubs is the coloring. I noticed it when it aired on Toonzai when Popo was a color that looked "off".
  6. Recording TV in UK or Ireland

    This should be the right forum for this, since you aren't actually requesting a series, but instead asking if someone has a way to do it. You should use the requests board if you want anything specific, though, and don't want to get everything set up to do it yourself. Anyway, since I live in the US, I can't help. It is also actually impossible to get the stuff you want, since in the end, no matter what hardware or software you use, you will not get an untouched audio or video source from TV, since it requires encoding it to even record it to the computer in any way. You can get a single pass high quality encode, though, with practically any HD video recording hardware, such as a PVR with HDMI input from an HDMI source or an HDMI video recording apparatus that plugs into your computer's USB port, with some professional video capture software like Cyberlink Power Director.
  7. What Games Are You Currently Playing?

    I am trying to finish Xenoblade Chronicles 2, still. I am on Chapter 9 with over 115 hours, so far.
  8. [NOMINATIONS] Anime of Fall 2017

    Recovery of an MMO Junkie
  9. Need help with Blu-ray viewing/ripping

    Unless your drive came with software for BluRay playback, you will need to either rip the BluRay with MakeMKV or purchase a BluRay playback program like CyberLink PowerDVD.
  10. How can you tell when something is re-encoded?

    Not really, unless it has some info in MediaInfo that gives it away, such as a program with very few options or a low bit rate and file size. Most small file size encodes are not made from the DVD/BD/web source, but from someone else's encode. Nowadays, unless a video is from a subbed source or raw JP video, they normally don't even include watermarks much anymore, but do include them in the MediaInfo as names for video/audio/subtitle tracks
  11. Recent Anime Purchases?

    I got quite a few new series throughout December and some were just to upgrade from individual discs to complete collections.

Churuya-san collection The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan Love, Chuunibyou, and Other Delusions complete collection and the movie called Rikka Edition I also got the Your Name LE last month and I bought the Food Wars CE from Sentai on sale and won a free CE from them with their contest and chose the Haikyu! Season 1 CE
  12. What Games Are You Currently Playing?

    I just started Xenoblade Chronicles 2 today, since it finally came in
  13. What Games Are You Currently Playing?

    I am currently playing Muv-Luv Unlimited, a VN. I had 3 endings left and I will have finally finished the original Muv-Luv VN. I would be playing Xenoblade Chronicles 2 if GameStop shipped it one day earlier, which would have been Wednesday. Now, I have to wait until Monday, since UPS Ground isn't available in my city for Saturday deliveries, even though the package is already in my city as of 9:39PM tonight.
  14. How did you guys found kametsu?

    Found it a long time ago on old sites that the admin also went to, like Cartoon-World before their forums shutdown and people were directed here as a replacement.
  15. Nozomi Aria Upscale Screenshots

    By that picture, the Nozomi BluRay is much better than the DVD, unless they are mislabeled.
