I thought it was a PPV kind of thing, if that's true why worry about the broadcast?

QUOTE (thebladeavenger @ 2 hours, 42 minutes ago)
I wanted to add myself to the people awaiting the release of any information. Im sure i speak for thousands of people not posting.

I looked for a bit for information.... There really isnt any. The hype slowed down, and everyone thought someone was DVRing it, and noone did. Bummer. If i come across it , on my search and you guys here arnt aware, i will be sure and post it.

Things take time. As ive waited for english subs for every episode of ever made of ID, sometimes its a month plus before subs appear. People have jobs, and lives. Its never happened like this before. People kind of just forgot about the release. Not even a raw exists. Usually we wait on the subs, not the raw.

If i could help obtain the raw, i would. ID and this forum chooses its fans from such a specific, loyal subscriber base, its a shame we cant obtain a raw. I am on my iphone and cant easily scroll up and see who said it, but one subscriber said that he should setup his captureing box and get us a raw. We may have to take you up on that if this continues. smile.gif

Best of luck to all of the (unpaid) staff of the forum, and the ideals you incorporate into the lives of many fans who dont subscribe.

The person who posted that was biggamehit, who lives in Japan right now. That being said, I don't believe he has any experience with capping PPV sources so I wouldn't hold my breath on him providing anything. I'm pretty sure he's gonna run into the stream encryption, throw his hands up and apologize for getting our hopes up.

Which is totally okay since I expected that already. Capping PPV is a job for the experienced, and the experienced don't always feel like sharing what they paid money for.

In theory, you can literally use a very nice camera to record your screen, provided the lighting is good and your TV is very high def. There is always a way when there is a will. I think the problem here is there is no one willing to go through the troubles.

You're assuming that the analog hole hasn't been closed for PPV. I'm not saying it has or has not--I don't live in Japan--but I know that that was a big deal back when HDCP first started being a thing so I'd imagine that such an obvious loophole would have been countered by now.

That is unless you have specialized equipment to strip HDCP or otherwise bypass the encryption...but that again falls back to my description of an 'experienced' capper who would have access to such technology and knowledge. Your average DVR user doesn't. smile.gif

Screenshots and Direct Download links for both the Opening and Ending in 480p standard quality now available. user posted image

Opening post updated with link to the screenshots and download links of the OP and ED1. Check it out!

Latest Update: No available raws found anywhere on the Internet. It is truly strange how not even a LQ video source or even cam footage is available. All we have is some screencaps from some random Japanese blogger and that's it. At this point, we should prepare for the worst... that we might have to wait all the way until June 13th for the DVD Vol.1 to release.

Just keep checking the thread, but there are no signs that anyone would cap it for us. sad.gif

I'm not sure what a PPV service box looks like in Japan. But isn't it possible to record if it has HDMI output or Analog output. If you connect to a recording device, then to a TV, it should work. About the encryption, I have no idea but I doubt your average Japanese TV "decrypts" anything. Take this assumption for a grain of salt because I never owned a Japanese TV or had PPV service from Japan

Wow, holy shit, what's your problem bro? Obviously if you knew the tech and had a solution we'd already have raws. That we do not have raws proves my point. But please, by all means, prove me wrong. I'm sure there are thousands upon thousands of people here who would love for my hypothesis to be incorrect. smile.gif

Please see my previous post about the 'analog hole', and look up HDCP the technology. If PPV boxes use only HDCP, then yes, there are ways around it with specific devices (look up how to record from PS3s, for instance). However, if Japanese PPV actually is using some proprietary encryption/signal obfuscation method specific to the Japanese market then that'll be something else entirely.

Again, I do not live in Japan. I am talking from the technologist perspective, not the first-person perspective. I'm more than happy to be proven wrong, but the longer we go without a raw the more solid my theory becomes. Doesn't matter too much to me, to be honest. C-A already said they've got the DVDs on tap and will have 'em subbed once they're released, so it's time to kick back and enjoy the festivities.

It's PPV. Fifth Stage was the same way, Wangan Midnight was the same way. It's not strange at all. There's an ongoing discussion in the other Final Stage pinned thread about why that is.

You may as well wait for the DVDs instead. That way you won't be disappointed if the PPV raws don't materialize, and you'll be excited properly if they do (plus you won't be holding your breath!). smile.gif

Who will sub this final stage? CA, or IDW top dudes?

Well, until I get a raw or my DVD for 1 and 2 arrives(I'll make my own raw then) we at CA can't do much. I'll have the DVD around 13 June. No promises on when I'll have it done. I hope I'll have them ready within days of receiving the DVD. Of course, it also depends on my translator's work schedule. I'll keep everyone posted.

And if a raw comes out before the 13th I'll have my translator jump on it as soon as he can.
