What does “TVRip” mean?
A TVRip is a TV episode that is either from Network* or PRE-AIR from satellite feeds sending the program around to networks a few days earlier. Some programs contain extra parts, or camera/commentary tests. PDTV is capped from a digital TV PCI card, generally giving the best results, and groups tend to release in SVCD for these. VCD/SVCD/DivX/XviD rips are all supported by the TV scene.
*capped using digital cable/satellite boxes are preferable.
