Alright, so I have the day off of work, and finally able to sit and mess with everything. The previous way of recording was very...flakey, basically if I wasn't *watching* it then it wasn't recording, and considering I work two jobs being home at the time it was airing was kindof impossible LOL. With that said, I spent a lot of time and figured out a solution using my PC so I *THINK* we should be good. I'll stress test it tonight and see if anything's wrong LOL.

Once the episode is recorded, I then have to basically convert it to a .mp4 file and then from there split the episodes in two (from the one hour block). All in all the process seems to take my computer about 30-40 minutes. So *shrugs* not impossible, but I'm going to have to make it a habit I keep up with because otherwise it's just a pain LOL.

With that said, obviously I missed a few episodes and I'm sorry, I'll try and get this upcoming Sunday's marathon to fill it in and then capture it and post every day *fingers crossed* With that said I dropped two more episodes into the 1995 folder, simply labeled "B&B Cala Classic 10/6/21 Episode 1 / 2" once we know what episode were on (again) than I'll attempt to label them accordingly going forward. 

Let me know what you think of the video quality, I tried a new process using a new program so I *think* i retained as much of the HQ as I could. I really haven't watched the episodes because I'm confused LOL, but I plan on saving everything and watching once we get to this point with the VideoLand episodes LOL. 

Anyways hope everyone is having a good day

Thank you so much! 

 

Episode 1 is May 19, 1995 and episode 2 is May 20, 1995.  May 19 was in the vault, but the quality on yours is much better! I think these videos look great and the file size is perfect for me. They look just as good as videoland but without the subtitles. I'm like you, I'm waiting to watch them all at once. I just skim the episode enough to figure out the date (I watched in real time in 1995 so it's not really a spoiler, haha). It's really too bad they don't stream the videos on Cala and instead you have to do all that work. Hoping videoland gets up to that season eventually, but it's so great to have these in case they don't.  Truly appreciate the work that goes into it.

Hi, is anyone able to successfully view 1306 which was uploaded today?

I'm using VCL player to view the latest eps as BoldRestless suggested, which has worked great up through 1305.  1306 plays for 40 seconds and then freezes...

A million thanks to the uploaders for these precious eps!

 

Same problem here, I think the video is corrupted.

May 20 was a Saturday. Is it possible the 2nd one is May 22? Thanks for working it out!

Quality looks GREAT! Thank you for all your efforts, clearly time consuming but worth it to help complete what is missing!

LOL of course. I saw that the first was the 19th and then didn't check the calendar. It must be the 22nd then.

So cool to see Lane Davies as Ridge! And what a surprise in the 1308 credits to see Lane listed in the contract section, and Ronn Moss not listed at all.  That's not usually the case if an actor is out sick and there's a replacement actor... the original actor would retain their listing in the contract cast credits, and the replacement would be listed under recurring/guest cast.

Anyone know the story here? Was Ronn in a salary dispute or something?

I remember Ronn being off to film some mini-series?

Today's Cala Classics have been posted to the '95 folder.

Do we have a list of pre-emption dates? I can start attempting to label them and we can just tweak/adjust as we go? 

The first one is the same as the 2nd one you posted yesterday. Do they do 2 new ones a day or repeat one from the day before plus a new one? Thank you!!

I went ahead and renamed the first two vids (it will show my name because I was the last one to edit the file, I don't mean to take credit away from you :)) and I deleted the duplicate that BoldKara pointed out.

I'm not sure about "B&B Cala Classic 10-7-21 Episode 2" cause I had May 23, 1995 as a possible preemption, which would make that episode the 24th, but it definitely doesn't match the recap for May 24th. https://groups.google.com/g/rec.arts.tv.soaps.cbs/c/FWPcrPDQP3I/m/BshXzv3zck8J So maybe once you upload tomorrow's episode we can confirm if that one is May 24. 

I'm also making folders because the messiness is driving me crazy.

Ah okay I have no idea I haven’t been watching just recording and posting. If it’s one a day that sucks I was really hoping to go through the show  

 

whats crazy about that is that means every episode airs 5 times on the network, that’s crazy. The episode airs first at 10:30 am, then at 3:30 pm then again at 10 am the following day, then again at 3 pm and then one last time on Sunday in the marathon

I dare say however many appear in the marathon is how many aired during the week. If it’s not too much trouble to crop out the ads either side of the episode, great, if not, no biggie, we’d rather have the episode with ads than no episode at all!
 

Ah so to me it seems the 3pm is the repeat from the day before and 3.30pm airing is the new one, especially if you are recording the 3-4pm block. Thanks so much again.
