So, I am now trying a different utility called Fan Control 1.1 which monitors the cpu temp and adjusts the fan speed accordingly. Hey dyna... the only thing I would be concerned about with a program that monitors cpu temp is this: Taken from the SMC FAQ section: Wouldn't it be even better to read o...

Your CPU is right on the limit of thermal throttling. It'll probably start down clocking in speed when it's hitting that kind of temp Thanks... I have SMC fan control 2.2 installed, ....How do I down clock my speed? ...and is there a way to tell if there is any damage caused by the previous temps. ...

Are you serious? I was under the impression that the CPU on my machine is good to 100 Celcius?

Is anyone seeing these temps using HB?

Awesome Program guys

Thanks to the help from Cavalicious, eddyg, PuzZLeR, and dynaflash, I converted a movie tonight using CRF. I took it step further by reading up on the Advanced Settings and set those based off the definition provided in the user guide and the type of movie I was converting. Anyway...the end result w...

How hot is too hot?

Hey guys, just a general question. I've been reading how some people run HB overnight. Anyway, it usually takes me about 2 hours to convert a movie and my CPU temp hovers around 185 deg F for the entire time. How hot is too hot? These are the temps while HB is running. Computer is MBP 2.2 GHz Intel ...

So make sure CRF is checked in preferences and set the CQ to 65% max right? I can't comment on CQ since I have little experience with it and I'm on Windows so things are a bit different with the HB GUI there. But, as Cavalicious said, CRF is the way to go as is my opinion too. CQ is an older method...

Yeah...Roger that. Just wanted to make sure all I needed to do was adjust the CQ since it's already checked.

I plan on reading up on advanced settings and playing around with that as well.

Would FFMPG X be the equivelent of Project X for Windows? Or does HB already incorporate all the features of FFMPG X?

CRF=76% is much too high when encoding from an MPEG-2 source. The law of diminishing returns begins to apply higher than 65% encoding from that older and limited format. Anything above 70% is really for raw uncompressed video which is 65GB/hour. In fact, anything above CRF=70%, or even CRF=65% IMO,...

I don't do CQ anymore, but I do CRF...and one would be hard-pressed not to be able to tell the difference between 2000 ABR and 76% CRF. CRF is the way to go, try it and you'll see. I just did a search and a lot of reading. If the codec being used is .264 the CQ percentage is actually CRF? Or does C...

After reading this I tried the one pass and the only difference I see between the two options is the extra time it takes to do a two pass. Picture/Audio is exactly the same for me with a one pass vs. a two pass on the last two DVDs I have ripped. The only things I change using HB is setting the bit...

Yep.. I see the problem. Look on the 46th line entry


just kidding... use MTR to rip the DVD first then use HB. HB will crash or just quit sometimes with certain DVDs.
