Toshiba's Cell-based HD GPU - SpursEngine SE1000

The Cell CPU used in the PS3 has a PowerPC RISC core (on a par with a G4), plus eight Synergistic Processing Element (SPE) cores for vector data. Toshiba are developing a graphics card for the PC with four of these SPE cores. Apparently they are pushing this for encoding and decoding MPEG 2 and H.26...

Using yyyymmdd is nice and clear, while dd/mm/yyyy and mm/dd/yyyy as in your suggestion are very ambiguous.

Re: Turn Titles into Chapters

In your case, I guess you want to use ALL the DVDs titles? If not, then the you'd also need a way of specifying which ones (and possibly also in which order) which is MUCH more complicated.

Re: Ripped movies not compatible with iPhone/iPod

I cannot make any ripped movie work with the iPod, but they will work with the Sansa and the new Sonys (which are AWESOME, by the way!) The only way I get the movies to work is changing the codecs to MPEG-4 AAC settings, which doesn't appear in any of the settings that I'm aware of. Most annoying. ...
