Notes: The original recording had a few problems. Most serious was an unacceptable number of sparklies due to the weather on the night of the transmission. The signal was also received letterboxed thus reducing the viewable area on a widescreen display. As a fresh encoding was required to remove the worst of the sparklies, it was decided to crop and resize to allow for a proper widescreen display.
The audio recorded on the standalone has been left intact and although it is AC3, it does not suffer from any of the cuts/dropouts suffered by the NTSC version upped on Dime a while back. After learning that some people prefer MPEG audio, a second audio track in this format was added.
It is strongly suggested that this is burned to Verbatim DVD+R Dual Layer disc using ImgBurn. I set the layer break at 46:44. There is a very slight pause at the layer break on playback but this is not much of a problem as it occurs between tracks.
