ShowAnalyzer Settings Explained

While I love ShowAnalyzer, I have to admit being a little intimidated by all of the settings with obtuse names available for creating custom scanning profiles.  Now thanks to Ben, we can all tune like pros.   If you you’ve ever used any automatic commercial skipping technolog you know that it isn’t 100 percent accurate. We remember our old ReplayTV […]

I would have liked to have seen more on picture quality and a look how colorspace is handled between the different vendors, but overall Xbit does a good job of quantitatively measuring (IMO, their HQV HD scores are a bit generous) GPU performance for HTPC use.   It is almost impossible to install longer graphics cards – such as ATI […]
