It is more likely that Honda robots will attack with Bat'leths.

Actually I think it is more likely we will actually get paradise. (If you get the reference, then Awesome!)

back to the point a sec... i think a good idea wood be to have a option mabie of having a season (dependind if it fits) at highest quality for me id get a season of full quality episodes as i cant justify downloading them but i can get the smaller quality ones or the streem.
here we have a internet quota per month which includes upload and download therefore i must only download minimum where possible but id happly buy a flash drive (mine is 4gb atm so upgrade neded anyways)

One season would be roughly 50 GB. Cost of that would be astronomical on flash drives (max size is 16 GB for the custom printed ones). It'd cost roughly $110-200 to send you one season on custom flash drives (if full quality).

It'd be cheaper to sell you an external hard drive (say, a 500 GB drive) and send you all seasons on it for a couple hundred bucks. You'd end up with the external hard drive with a few hundred gigs of video. For an extra $30 we'll throw in a Category5 keychain usb flash drive Wink

That said, if someone really wants a season, courier me your external hard drive with return shipping paid, and I'll load it up and send it back.

I think it is a good idea to compress it, but maybe not to such a small size. For example, Episode 237 is 1.07GB uncompressed. I think if you could shrink it down to about 100MB per episode or thereabouts, the quality would be seriously improved over the 24-50MB sizing, while still being able to fit it all onto 64GB (I know that would jack up the cost of a flash drive, but you would have reasonable quality. As for the Blu-ray Disc idea, that would work, but the way it has been presented would be as a data disc, meaning that most likely you would not be able to use it in a Blu-ray Disc player connected to a TV, only in a Blu-ray drive on your PC.

Hi garywhite - this is a very old thread and no longer applies. Our LD RSS feed was discontinued a few years ago. It went great, but was too much effort and cost for such a small user-base, and that user-base did not mind upgrading to the SD feed, which carries the episodes around 200 MB per episode.
