This goes out especially to all Monty Python and Terry Gilliam fans!
I hope this is not gonna look like some commercial spam mail to you guys (Spam, spam, lovely spam...), but I need your help getting two files related to Monty Python and Terry Gilliam that look like they're not gonna be commercially available anytime soon and that you can have too once we're successful.
The two shows I'm talking about are Terry Gilliam's recent staging of Berlioz's opera The Damnation of Faust at the English National Opera, said to be very Pythonesque in how Terry pulled it off, and Holy Flying Circus, a TV dramatization of what trouble the Pythons ran in on the production and release of their cult film Life of Brain, both broadcast on BBC4 on October 14th (this Friday!) and 19th.
Now, I've been a member of www.onlinetvrecorder.com since 2009 now. It's a digital VCR where you can program stuff on TV (even from about 30 US and UK channels) to be recorded for you, and after the show is over, you can download it DRM-free.
But the system is competitive. Only the 100 most-wanted shows in a day are provided as HQ files, which is full DVD quality. All shows in lower demand are only provided as divx, which looks like a 320x240 MPEG-1 VCD.
So I need your help! See http://tinyurl.com/5w59h8b (12th post down the thread page) on how to display the onlinetvrecorder.com page in English and get a free account, so we can bump up the two shows I'm trying to get as HQ files. Watch out, the link to program Holy Flying Circus is outdated, the new link is in my next post further down.
