Re: SBE's 2 Fix Or Not 2 Fix??

Well, first off, what do you mean by a "real boot"? The reason I ask is that if you are talking about one from an actual pressed Silver CD, then we require complete lineage from the Silver CD to the lossless files (including a requirement of EAC to be used for extraction).

If, however, you are talking about a live show, then we are a bit more lenient on lineage. You should first check around, like over at etree, to see if the show is listed there. You can even search on fingerprints, so you may be able to find the full lineage on the show there if the fingerprints match up. Usually, you can write the lineage as at least something like:
audience > unknown equipment and unknown transfer > flac

And then you would modify it to include the SBE fix:
audience > unknown equipment and unknown transfer > flac > TLH (to fix SBEs) > flac

Something like that. The best thing to do if you are unsure is to post in the
Seeding/Lineage thread here for some help on how to write it out. Just let us know as much as possible about the show as you got it and then exactly what you did to fix it and we can help you write it out as accurately as possible. Also, when downloading shows for now on, take a look at the lineage and you will start to get an idea of how it should be written. If you can tell exactly what equipment and application is being used to do everything, then it is probably well written lineage.
