Some Canadian TV ads from 1995, ripped from a VHS.
Includes a promo for an "adbusters" interview. Ironic?

at this stage I really just don't have any patience for any of the arguments about whether or not adblocking is "ethical."
I'm going to block as many ads as I can. No, you can't stop me. No, if you try, I'll just leave and use some other website. No, it's not theft. No, I don't give a shit. Get off my lawn.
Alberta 2&7 Ads from 1997 [VHS Rip]
Compiled some of the ads from one VHS in the collection of home taped videos I am ripping to digital.
Some Bad News: You have to repeat this every time you un-dock the Nintendo Switch.
Although I was able to unplug the capture card HDMI from the HDMI switch, connect the monitor HDMI, set the Nintendo Switch to "automatic" TV resolution, re-dock the Nintendo, unplug the monitor from the HDMI switch, connect the capture card HDMI to the HDMI switch, and it started working again. A pain in the ass but it works. 😩
6. Go back to main menu on Nintendo Switch. Disconnect monitor/TV from HDMI switch OUTPUT
7. Connect Intensity Pro 4K to HDMI switch OUTPUT
8. In BMD Desktop Video Setup, set the Video Input to "HDMI" and Audio Input to "Embedded". The main menu for Desktop Video Setup should show "1080p60 HDMI" as the Video Input
9. Open Blackmagic Media Express and set the project settings to "1080p60". The Nintendo Switch should now show up at full resolution.
1. Connect monitor/TV to HDMI switch OUTPUT
2. Switch to HDMI input on monitor/TV
3. Connect Nintendo Switch Dock to HDMI switch INPUT
4. If Nintendo doesn't show up on monitor/TV, un-dock and set the TV settings to "Automatic" and re-dock
5. Once Nintendo displays on monitor/TV, go to Nintendo Switch main menu and back to Nintendo Switch TV settings. Set the TV Resolution to "1080p", and RGB Range to "Full Range".
Here are the steps I found to work. You need 1) A 1080p monitor or TV, 2) A Nintendo Switch in its Dock, 3) an Intensity Pro 4K with Desktop Video Setup Software installed, 4) an HDMI switch (splitter may also work). I am using an IOGEAR UHD 4K x 2K 4-Port HDMI Switch; fewer ports would probably also work and be cheaper but this is what the store had in stock.
I tried connecting the Nintendo Switch dock to a 1080p monitor, which works fine and I can set the Nintendo to use "1080p". I tried doing this then swapping the HDMI cable to one that connects to the Intensity Pro 4K, but it didn't work.
Searching online forums led me to someone who used an HDMI splitter/switch, which preserves the EDID for the Nintendo to use when communicating with the capture card.
The Intensity Pro 4K capture card has some issues when trying to capture video from a Nintendo Switch over HDMI. Namely, neither device will pick a resolution and the capture card will not see the Switch at all.
Undocking the Switch and setting it to 480p, re-docking, and setting the capture card to capture NTSC works but is hideous. While in this mode, the Switch will not show any resolutions other than "Automatic" and "480p".
(Solution in thread below)
After installing the capture card and their desktop video software, I can preview the S-Video stream from the Pioneer in Quicktime Player. Neat.
Will probably take me a few weeks to digitize. Last time I tried this (10 years ago?) was with an El Gato USB capture device, which got *really* hot. I vaguely recall that device having some… odd behaviours.
Calgary. I still like Ruby
