Media Info Command

Below is output from the mediainfo command. I ran it on an episode of FOX's Fringe and CBS's NCIS. It is interesting to see the difference between a prime-time FOX and CBS production. These were recorded by Ubuntu 8.10 MythTV from a HDHomerun receiving over the air content. Differences of note are: The size from FOX was 1280x720 and CBS was 1920x1080. The frames per second were higher on FOX (59) than CBS (29). Scan type on FOX was progressive and CBS was interlaced. Both included Dolby audio and closed captions.
