Saturday Night Live snl070106-s31e4-Lance.Armstrong-Sheryl.Crow-HDTV-DVDR-NTSC
This is from an over-the-air broadcast 07/01/06 of Saturday Night Live (SNL), re-encoded from true HDTV 1080i format. Lance Armstrong is the SNL host. Sheryl Crow also performs as the musical guest. It’s cute how Lance and Sheryl are an item at the time. Now all the gossip is about why it did not work out for them. It’s a Halloween show that originally aired 10/29/2005. One of the best for this season!
The 1080i video was reduced to 720x480p, and encoded 16:9 at 4000bps for NTSC DVDR. Complete with 5.1 dolby digital sound. While not as detailed as the original, the picture is excellent, and the audio is very good. It is a direct copy from the HDTV TS.
SNL is much better to watch this way. The commercials have been edited out. Watch SNL on DVD any time in the comfort of your living room. Enjoy!
