Hart Foundation Comp


Recommended Posts

Who would be interested in a 12 disc Hart Foundation comp that goes from Sur. Series 96 to Sur. Series 97? The last disc is an epilogue of the fallout after Survivor Series. All of the PPV matches are either from DVD or VHS masters. The TV is all 1st gen SP transfers. Everything is VG to EX VQ. If interested, PM me and maybe we can have a discussion on the merits of episodic TV and how it can be done right. However, I need to make sure there is interest in such a comp before I start distributing so I am going to wait for 10 commitments before going further. I think $60 is a fair donation for the footage someone would receive. Tell me what you think.

Honestly, I'd be interested in discs 8-12, but I have most of the stuff on the first seven discs already.


Having the entire package wouldn't be bad though since some of my stuff from 1997 is 2nd or 3rd gen though.

Yeah, it depends what you are looking for. I spent alot of time hunting for the best possible VQ on this stuff. When I sent One Night Only to Dan Ginnetty, he said it was the best VQ he has ever seen on that show. Since I traded that from you at one time, I know it would be a step-up for you :).


So, as Some Guy can attest to, the VQ is about as good as it gets. For some who have never seen this stuff, it is worth it. If you want to improve VQ, it is worth it.

VQ on One Night Only shouldn't be a problem anymore since its out on official DVD.


That's unless your after an original that is, without the WWF's bleeped out. The logo still stands though, since we weren't onto the scratch logo just yet.



The deal is that the only official release of One Night Only is in PAL. Well, trying to convert PAL to NTSC for the longest time was a bitch. Well, I finally figured out how to do it and while there is still that "look", it really is the best method I have found for the most part instead of trying to watch it through a bad acid trip.


As far as the WWEs bleeped out, I don't believe I heard any bleeps at all in the recording. For the Undertaker-Bret hart match, I used the version from the Bret Hart DVD. For Bulldog and Owen's matches, I used the PAL version.

Committed. Not to a mental institution, but to this project.

Glad to hear it. I'll keep you posted. I am going to let it run through the week. I think Saturday was probably a bad day to run it since it is traditionally a slow day. I'll probably bump the topic back on Monday to see how many people are serious about grabbing this footage.
