First, Kate laughs with the Mickey Mouse Theater of the Air, I learn some history with Cavalcade of America, she plays a creepy Sleep No More, and I close it out with the Adventures of Sam Spade!

3D Video Wizard - A Review

Filed under: Reviews and Impressions — Charlie Summers @ 10:45 am

Anyone who’s read this blog for any length of time knows I love 3D photos, videos, and television; I even created my own 3D photos with a cheap camera a while back. So in that vein, I bought a small set-top box add-on device called the 3D Video Wizard. While list is around $150, and normal price is around $99, I picked it up for under $40 thinking I got an awesome deal. But I should have done more research first…

The 3D Video Wizard is designed to do two separate things - convert existing 3D video to amber-blue 3D (ColorCode is a trademark, so I probably shouldn’t use it here), so that non-3D televisions can display the 3D (think of the stuff the broadcast networks have run over the years, like that episode of Chuck that was in 3D, or the Super Bowl commercials), and also to “convert” 2D to 3D, attempting to add a layer of depth to existing “flat” television programs. While the latter is kinda cute, I originally bought this device to convert existing 3D files I have from various sources in real-time so I could avoid using AVISynth to convert from SBS/Half-SBS/OU (also referenced as TaB)/Half-OU to amber-blue. Makes sense that anything advertised to handle 3D formats would handle these ubiquitous ones, doesn’t it? I mean, especially since practically every 3D television currently sold handles these formats out-of-the-box…anyone know of any that can’t?

Charter.net addresses bouncing?

Filed under: Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 12:33 pm

Got a strange error message for the Internet OTR Digest today, with a passel of charter.net addresses bouncing:

Your message was not delivered within 4 days and 0 hours.
Host proxy.charter.net is not responding.

If you’re on charter.net and haven’t received the Digest, that’s why. Once the problem clears, you can request issues via the archive server.
