To be honest, I'm not at all sure what format the pcHDTV-3000 captures
in; I am still learning the lower-level technical stuff. I did have
automatic transcoding turned on, because without it, a single 3+ hour
City Council meeting took up half of my 70GB /video partition.
Transcoding took this down to about 8GB. I was pretty sure I had already
tried doing a recording with automatic transcoding turned off though,
but I'm going to try it again to be certain. Is there any way to examine
a .nuv file and tell if it's already been transcoded or not?
