The quick version is the opener was a little less than I was hoping, and the main event was a little better than I was hoping. The long version is it was 22 minutes, which is the most in 6 or 7 weeks. And they still had too much time at the end of the show. This is what happens when you don’t have any features. And also people willing to work long matches.
Maybe it’s the rays coming from the eye lids, maybe it’s because I’ve read a few articles about him this week, but it never occurred to me until that Sombra’s mask is not that far off Oro’s.
Weird fact about my TiVo Series 3 that I forget – there’s no analog out. There’s HDMI out and Composite out, and probably a couple others, but my plan of just hooking it up to analog in on my computer didn’t work so well. I ended up using the composite out into a VCR, and the analog out of the VCR into the computer, which got the video there but seems to have created an audio delay. I couldn’t figure out how to fix that, and I couldn’t figure out why, when I run the MPEG thru VirtualDub, the AVI file comes out twice as large as when I digitally transfer it off my TiVo. It’s up here, but it’s over 700 MB, as large as the 2h30m AAA show.
Does anyone have an idea of what I’m doing wrong? It’s not so much this file, though I wouldn’t mind redoing it if I could get it to shrink. I’ve got older shows of FSE (and 52MX) on a external drive which were recorded in much the same way and have the same problem when it comes to converting. I’d like to transfer to AVI, but if they’re going to be that big, it’s almost not worth bothering. I’m using the same DiVX codec, I’m adjusting the size to the same, but I think there’s something in how the files were recorded that I’m not compensating for (some audio compression I need to do?)
