There are a few ABC affiliates that broadcast HD in 1080i.
VMC will record in the format received by your tuner it does not change the
resolution of what is received.
What tuner are you using to record your OTA broadcasts and and how is it
configured to its source?
What is the size of one of your one hour DVR-MS files?
I am using a AverTV HD Volar(A838) HD tuner. The software that comes with the tuner records fine at 1920x1080 in MPEG-2 format. However, when i use Vista Media Center to record the same channel, the file shows resolution of 720x480
. I have a DVR-MS file that contains one hour of the Survivor Gabon from CBS, it is about 7.5Gb.
Windows Vista-64 Ultimate + SP1
AMD Athlon 64 3000+
