Because thats what i understand from MooglyGuys manifest:
Quote: This would effectively require tracking down a Laserdisc player with the relevant capabilities, and designing custom hardware to tap directly into the signals on the laser pickup directly after it's been sampled by the ADC and the good/no-good bit has been set or unset.
This is what is desired and this method is not just done by connecting to the composite out (on the outside case of a LDP), like you wrote. I apologize, if i didnt understand this correctly.
> User-friendliness is not relevant here. Nice strawmam (or should I say uman?) argument. Regardless, it's really not hard as long as you know what you're doing. You plug the LDP composite output to a BNC adapter, plug it into the device and go. >
I am not strawmam, strawman, not even uman. i am u-man, but registering at MW didnt allowed to use "-". But go on provoking me, monika15 (month old).
I have read and learned enough, to see that capturing is a absolute no-go. I still truly wish you all the best with your ongoing steps. It is written multiple times that the problem (setup for conversion) is solved and the effort for good data dump is the same, so i (and other LD fans) have hope, that it will happen in a near future. If there will be a option for donate, i will donate my budget for my initially intended setup.
