    Default Best UK TV channel for watching/recording Malcolm in the Middle?




    Is there a channel that broadcasts Malcolm in the Middle without any watermarks in the corners?

    I'm in the UK and I know it used to be on the BBC, I infact had recorded most of it onto DVD myself and had it all in great quality. Now the tragic part, the disks (along with anything else I've recorded, thankfully my real DVDs were somewhere else) were melted in a fire.

    If I had known that fox hadn't released the later seasons and my recordings were so precious I would have uploaded rips for everyone before the tragedy. It's only now I try to recover what I have lost that I realise the true horror of this!

    I plan to record all episodes again and upload so it will be safe for ever does anyone know where I can record them without annoying logos and watermarks so they can be perfect?

    A site with schedules would also be great, please help

    Actually, Malcolm in the Middle in being broadcasted both on Sky1 (seasons 2-3) and BBC2 (season 6).


    Season 3 starts airing on Sky1 (and also Sky1 HD) this week in widescreen! As you may know, we have seasons 2-4-5-6-7 in widescreen but not seasons 1 and 3...

    So does anybody is interested in recording the episodes so that we can have season 3 in good, widescreen quality?


    Check the schedule (there's repeats) : http://uk-tv-guide.com/show-times/49...Middle/Sitcom/

    I've asked this before, but how do people rate the quality of this clip?

    Thanks

    It's very good quality! And it's in widescreen, which is great and rare. Season 2 and 4 that we can download on the MITMVC torrent are similar to this. The file is really big, though. A MITM episode should be an approx. 175 Mo file.

    Would you have all season 3 captured in this quality?

    I have most episodes stored like this, but they are each stored at 1.3gb.

    I don't know if you have tried, but how do the files come out when you encode them to 175MB or 350MB .avi?

    Also do all the recordings have black bars on the side?

    For some reason, yes they do all have narrow black bars, must be my recorder. I'll take a shot at re-encoding one.

    The codec used to encode all the other MITM episodes is Xvid. http://www.xvid.org/Xvid-Video.3.0.html

    I did not get to see the clip, since the download limit was reached. Can you post a frame capture image or something?
