Re: The Wayback Machine - Avatar Extended Collector's Editio

I'm afraid that I have no direct help for your current problem, but I can confirm that, back in 2011, I ripped the same set without issue. Sometimes different countries, and even stores, get different masters so it may be (un)helpful to know that this was from Best Buy in Canada.

Good luck :)

It's too bad we can't have a civil conversion with out you being rude and condescending. If you find my first post in this thread not to your liking, it would be nice if you could just say it with out your sarcasm.

Re: Help required with Atmos

I have also tried playing the files using VLC on my Mac desktop computer but have the same problem I know this is probably no help for your current issue, but it’s worth mentioning that Macs can’t pass HD audio unless it’s PCM, i.e. no DTS-HD or Dolby TrueHD. When played back on a Mac VLC, or whate...

Because lossless does not mean uncompressed.

Re: Instructions for installation?

The daspi package installs a kernel extension, not the MakeMKV app. The MakeMKV app is the round icon that says “MakeMKV”. You can drag this from the disk image and put it anywhere you like, but if you’d like it in your Applications folder just drop it on the folder icon (in the disk image window) t...

Re: HD Audio Not In mKV even when selected??

You can not select only HD since DTS is embedded in DTS-HD and DD in DD True HD. So you will always have both. This is not accurate. I routinely (well, not anymore since FLAC transcoding was introduced) rip just the HD audio. All one need do is uncheck the box beside the standard DTS (the "core") o...

Re: This application is too old

I realize your statement is a bit old now, but I've heard Macs are great for crunching video, so I was curious how fast can you rip a Blu-Ray? My Win7 box will do roughly 1G/min, what's the iMac doing? Thanks! For reference: System Mac Pro 4,1 (March 3, 2009-July 27, 2010) 2 x 2.26 GHz Quad-Core In...

Re: Hunger Games Catching Fire BD - Which Playlist

Thank you so much for the explanation! No problem; glad to help. So, if I can watch the movie in the right sequence, then I chose the right playlist right? Probably, but see below. Am I right in assuming that there is no difference in audio or video quality between the playlists? Usually the "extra...

Stole as in the previous owner doesn't have it any more? I can read but apparently you don't know what "steal" means. Fair enough, the rightsholders don't know either. I know what it means.

Re: Hunger Games Catching Fire BD - Which Playlist

Would someone be kind enough to explain why the playlist or segment numbers matter? I've ripped a couple discs that appeared to have duplicates of the movie and just chose one to rip thinking there was no difference in the resulting mkv. I would really appreciate an explanation because I've been bu...

Re: Problem with Gravity 3D

But I thought the .iso files were created from the commercial disc
Maybe you should try buying the disc to find out. You know, instead of stealing it :roll:
