  2. I feel like the Forrest Gump of the technology world... if there is a way to get it from my DVR onto/into some other format for upload I would do it in a flash.

  3. do you have a standalone dvd recorder at all? once it's on DVD i can help with getting it onto your computer.

  4. I actually just got the new High Def Box with the DVR Recorder, I dont have a standalone DVD recorder. Would I be able to do anything with a Macbook or other laptop that has a DVD recorder/burner?

  7. depending on whether or not your video card has it, you might have a DVI input or something on your computer. and you'll probably have an S-Video output on your DVR and A/V outputs (red, white, and yellow). And you'd need a program to receive the stream into your computer and a program to capture the stream to your hard drive.

    sounds really technical and i've never done it.

  8. andy don't get too excited yet
    although the dvd plays perfectly
    when i copy the vob files to my hard drive and play them they seem to skip about 15 seconds in.
    don't have any more time to play today, i have to go home then go see Sisters of Mercy tonite so don't expect anything til tomorrow.
    If anyone else can do it fster than this, go for it.
    Cheers, Steve

  9. steve - maybe don't rip them to VOB, see if you can rip it to AVI using FairUse Wizard 2. Time consuming but the rips are great. I'll gladly e-mail it to you when you have the time.

  10. Thanks Steve, better you than me doll...the girls and I are also off to the phoenix for the show too.

    Thanks for your effort too Andy, might need your expertise/details if SJ can't get it to not skip.

  11. Screamer,

    If you have a MacBook, you can capture from your DVR via firewire. All you need is a utility from Apple's Developer site called DVHSCap. It's part of the Firewire SDK: http://developer.apple.com/hardwaredrivers/download/index.html

    You can then use MPEG Streamclip to convert to MPEG-4 or a variety of other formats.

  15. Banned from dime!?! Can anyone who got the files re-seed it to another tracker? Please?

    ReplyDelete
  16. no need for a different tracker, someone just e-mail Dime the info it needs to lift the ban.


    Insufficient information. Venue? State? Country?

    Send the requested details to dimemods@dimeadozen.org with torrent #220423 in the subject line. Upon receipt and review the ban may be lifted and you can resume here.

    Do NOT change your text file! Do NOT reupload

    ReplyDelete
  17. I just e-mailed them the following:

    Not my torrent, but I'd like to download. So please lift the ban.

    The info necessary is the following:

    The Cure:4Play Live in Charlotte
    June 16th, 2008 - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA (Bobcats Arena) as part of The Cure's 4Tour 2007-2008.

    HDNet filmed the concert and broadcasted it on October 26th, 2008. They compressed it into an hour show instead of the complete 3 hour+ concert.

    More details on the recording can be found at http://www.hd.net/concertseries.html

    More details on the actual show can be found at http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/ChainofFlowers/june1608.html

    Now please, remove the ban. Thank you.

    -Andy

  18. and their response:

    Thank you Andy, but we do have to hear from the torrent's uploader.

    You can send them a PM with the details you found and ask him to contact
    the moderators. As soon has we have heard from the uploader and verified
    that everything's in order we'll lift the ban.

    Best,

    jupiter2101, DIME Mod

  19. I think DIME has removed the ban. I'm downloading it now. It's not so fast, though.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Now I contacted the uploader.

    I tried sending the Dime mods an e-mail with all the necessary info, but they need to hear from YOU.

    here's what I sent them, it should be sufficient.

    E-mail the following to dimemods@dimeadozen.org with torrent #220423 in the subject line.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Just keep trying. I had the same problem, but I have it now. : )

    Thanks so much Steve!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Cat - i want some love, but i'm too much of a procrastinator to get it done. sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  28. brilliant broadcast! =] shall youtube it, maybe shall wait for the 5gb one.. but the wmv is brilllll thank you very much! =]

    ReplyDelete
  29. finally got it downloading for me AHHHHHHHHHHHH cant wait to see it

    ReplyDelete
  30. Aaron - i'm glad to have the WMV since it was smaller and an easier download for me just to watch on my PC, but I'm waiting for the 5GB one so I can put it on a DVD for my collection.

    Steve - thanks once more.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ccat I told you I'd send you one! no $$ neccessary.

    I'll kick off the download before I go to bed tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  32. It might have been during the other songs too, but DEFINITELY on Pictures of You, there's TOO MANY camera transitions it's pissing me off. Trying to enjoy a song/performance here and every 5 to 10 seconds they change to a different camera angle. I hope someone else agrees because it's just so ridiculous. Can you at least stay on one shot for 30 seconds? Please. The editing could have been better.

    Hint to Robert, if you're making this 4Tour DVD, consider the above.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Cat,

    I can get a copy out to you I think, assuming that this DVD will play on a regular DVD player. Otherwise, I guess there's no point in me downloading and burning it.

    Shoot me an e-mail at pasttense_78 at yahoo dot com if you need a copy.

    ReplyDelete
  34. comics, can you burn a copy if i send you a dvd? my hd is full :(

    would a 4.17 gb dvd-r work?

    ReplyDelete
  35. cpg, i already love you so much anyway, and of course i WILL send you some moolah or buy you dinner when you come visit... whatever...

    comic, that is terribly sweet to offer...

    ReplyDelete
  36. loose cannon - i've already contacted Echobunny and it's up to him to seed. i'm uploading whatever i do have but i am stuck at 36.2%

    ReplyDelete
  37. So the file on Dime is 5.36 MBs? You can't put it on a DVD then, as capacity is 4.7 megs. Since it is one file DVD software will not burn it (well thats the experience I have had in the past with huge files).

    My friend burned the gig onto a DVD for me but says it plays back at HALF screen size, but it is in the mail none the less.

    So for this megaload site, do you have to be a member?

    ReplyDelete
  38. rob-no, you dont need to be a member. just enter the code and wait 45 seconds.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yeah andy im downloading both and currently uploading the wmv to youtube, still high quality so enjoy everyone!! the account name is cure4hd

    ReplyDelete
  40. loose

    OK it finally worked. Likely in a few days a 4.x MB VOB version will end up on DIME.

    BTW I finally got a DIME acct after 5 months of trying (about 3 weeks ago).

    Anyone else download these videos:
    96 Rio show
    97 NYC show

    The Rio show is quite long, 2 DVDs worth. I have only watched a bit so far, but the interview with the Brazilian MTV guy is funny, as Robert is basically melting in the summer Rio heat/humidity.

    Also, the 1990 Leipzig concert recording is quite good too (FM radio broadcast).

  41. Hello,
    I am the seeder of the Cure HDNET file on Dime. And after reading alot of these comments I am planning on seeding a regular DVD of this show in Standard Definition for those who do not have any other means of playing HD files. It will have interactive menus etc.

  44. Okay.....I'll handle the standard DVD when that gets uploaded. Anyone who wants one, just send me a blank DVD-R and shipping costs. I have a high speed, stand alone burner, and it's no problem at all.

    ReplyDelete
  45. My original plan was to take this, and compress it using DVD 2 One so that it'll fit on a regular DVD. Will it play that way? I really have no idea.

    ReplyDelete
  46. DJ and Cat - I am downloading from Dime - 46% at the moment. I should be able to have a standard def DVD by the weekend. If you still need the DVD by then, just let me know.

    I will also work on the Rome show this weekend and have it transcoded from PAL to NTSC.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Rob - I was so glad when I found the Rio concert on Dime, as I used to have that concert on VHS! It got lost when I moved to America. I actually went to the concert in São Paulo, a few days before the one in Rio.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Just watched it, pretty cool. One thing that stuck out in my mind was how unfinished It's Over was lyrically. I really think Robert finished up that tune after the tour. Watch Charlotte and then Rome, it's startling!

    Regardless, happy to watch it, thanks to all who helped it happen.

  49. Thanks to all of the Cure peeps out there who were able to get this show up on-line! :)

    I finally got to download this yesterday & I watched it last night! Great show, just too bad they didn't show the whole thing! And I agree with andy, too many changing camera angles. I get's a bit distracting to watch but still I loved it. :)
