    I predicted he would come back (see post #68) but he beat my expectations.

    usually_quiet - You may be thinking of that asshat (I forgot his name) who was our expert on Philips/Magnavox DVD recorders. He edited every post he ever made to change it to have a pointer to another website (less helpful in my opinion) where he continued to help people with those recorders. I have no idea what set that guy off.

    hello_hello - For better or worse the mods do NOT care even a little bit about this type of thing. They've been very consistent in that. I think that after a certain period of time it should not be allowed to edit previous posts, but they have a different viewpoint. Maybe Baldrick would care to elaborate.

    He's gone back further than that. It looks like he's now decided to concentrate on removing all the Avisynth scripts he posted rather than everything. If he was actually posting here to help others as he once claimed, he would have left them. I guess that was not his motivation for joining here after all.

    Someone has done this kind of thing here before, although since that member's tenure was shorter, there were fewer posts removed.
    For the benefit of newbies I've left some scripted posts intact. Where possible I'm removing anything that contains opinions or impressions about certain hardware. This is not an appropriate forum for those issues.

  3. Are your imaginary visitors watching you delete posts? Are they still laughing?

    Yes that is right, wabjxo. I have speculated that wabjxo only wanted to monitor one forum for questions and maintain one guide, but another one of our members thought that he left because of posts by other members here harshly criticizing the Philips/Magnavox DVD recorders for not being as good in various ways as machines from more upscale brands. I asked if he had been told this by wabjxo himself, but never got an answer.

    Yes, the article was one I have never read here before, and an excellent debunk of the myth that there are special HDMI cables that can provide superior video and audio quality compared to other certified HDMI cables.

    However, similar articles made no impression on Sanlyn, who would say that the physics, computer science or mathematics in the article were all wrong, because his eyes and ears perceived a difference. He wouldn't consider the possibility that the equipment being connected could be the source of the problems (assuming the problems were real) or that his perception could be influenced by his own erroneous beliefs.

  8. As i made some experiments in past on HDMI cables i can say that (depends on HDMI Receiver IC quality) even partially corrupted HDMI cable works without problems.
    I've used HDMi cable with physically damaged wire (HDMI sent each video signal over pair of wires and use differential signaling) for pixel clock lines and for data channel lines, in all those cases for good HDMI Receiver i have no visible signals of link degradation - 2 cables (1.5m and 2m). was used to perform tests, in both cases also shielding was damaged to expose signal lines, also impedance for twisted pair was disturbed...
