rockphantom: Well, my hopes for a free leech for the ‘fixed’ VH Phoenix Blu-Ray have been dashed. Check out this reply from one of the DIME moderators.

“Milan,

The software doesn’t allow for a single torrent to be “free leech” — if, the setting is valid for all torrents, sorry.

Best,

jupiter2101, DIME Mod”

Perhaps, we should set up a vine/tree for the “fixed” Phoenix Blu-Ray (if it ever surfaces)…

Milan

It might of been better if you asked if everyone who downloaded the torrent can be credited the amount of data that they download to their uploads.

jroundy: You can limit your upload speed on uTorrent, and most likely other torrent programs.My point was that you were basically eating all the food at the table, and leaving scraps behind for the rest of us.

.

Once again, I have never uploaded anywhere near this much for one torrent. I am usually the one right along with you getting left with scraps, especially on large torrent files.
My whole point was that if you jump on a bluray torrent right away, you can seed close to 100%. That’s it.
I hope he gets it fixed, it has some great footage. Definately worth the D/L, even at 43 GB.

I’ll be hopping right back on it if he is able to get it fixed. It’s disappointing but shit happens, gremlins & I are old enemies so I am used to it!! I am more mad that I have a BD coaster than the 10 GB I am down at dime. I can upload more but that 2 dollar disc will be in the land fill forever :(

The only way that works is if your upload pipe is larger than that of the seeders upload pipe. If you can’t upload data as fast as the seeder, there’s no way to “catch up” unless you stay on longer and try to pick up the scraps. Of course in this case, most everyone got hosed.

Here is an important message that DIME Moderator Nightshifted just sent me:

“Meanwhile, please advise your fellow Van Halen fans at vhtrading.com not to discard their downloads from that torrent just yet, as parts of it may be valid on the new torrent and usable for resumption. They’d be making things worse for themselves if they make themselves have to redownload more than they need to.”

Yeah I dunno. WIth a DVD maybe…But the problem seems to be with the actual video file, which is the meat of the 22 GB….Wishful thinking, I didnt delete mine yet though for this very reason….. :wink:

All he has to do is upload at http://www.planetrocklosslessbootlegs.com and request that it be a “free leech” torrent. That way, everyone can get it and share ratios aren’t a factor.

Here is a message I received from PhxHorn2…

Feel free to post the following at VHTrading:

I’ve been reading the thread at VHTrading and I understand everyone’s disappointment with the file error. I’m sorry about the problems. DVD Architect, which I use to author the menus, won’t allow me to burn a Blu-Ray directly to a hard drive (except as an .iso file which Dime won’t allow), so I have to burn to BD-R and then copy the data folders to my hard drive. Today, when I tried playing the hard drive copy of the video file (the one used in the torrent), it had the same skipping issues as the descriptions from other users. So it must have been a copying error from the original BD-R. I am working on uploading a corrected version at Dime. I recopied the files to my hard drive and burned a new BD-R disc from the new copy, and it plays just fine from beginning to end. BUT, even though it plays, the checksum files are still showing some kind of difference between the original video file “00000″ and the hard drive copy. Even my brand new Blu-Ray burner doesn’t seem to be able to rip a copy that is 100% identical to the original, at least according to the checksum files. Like I said, the new copy plays just fine–and I sat there in front of the TV for quite awhile to verify that–but I get the impression that Dime is now going to want the torrented video file to be 100% identical to the original. Before the error became known, I applied for membership at VHTrading yesterday so that I could post myself, but apparently the signup request has to be reviewed by an admin and so I am still waiting. I’m sorry to hear about the ratio hit everyone has taken. If things at Dime don’t work out, but if I am convinced that I at least have a fully functional version, I’d be happy to upload it to the other site mentioned on this thread or to start a Tree. Or all three, whatever it takes. I think this disc will be worth the wait. Hopefully the tunes that are watchable are enough for everyone to agree. Again, my apologies for the issues. I’ll let you know what happens.

I have no problem downloading a complete new one. Once I download it I can help get it out there to others either via private torrent or sending out a disc for someone to make copies of.

I don’t believe dime would expect the fixed version to be 100 % identical to the original, if that was the case it would be defective too! I think maybe they were hopeful that a portion of the original download would be useable in the new one, keeping the need for more downloading to a minimum. But it is what it is.

So your copy works ok in a Blu Ray player without stopping?
No problems?

No I meant I didn’t have any qualms about downloading a new version from scratch, and helping to get a copy to others that were concerned about downloading another 22gb.

An ISO file is much like a ZIP archive. It’s just a container file with all the other files inside. You can extract the files from an ISO container using one of many freely available tools.

I just sent him an email and told him that I use this program for opening .iso files created with DVD Architect:

It’s free and it works great.
