Re: Lord of the Rings + The Hobbit 4K (Finally!)

Here's a thread of people complaining about frames being dropped in Plex since July on both AppleTV and Shield, so maybe we're not crazy: https://forums.plex.tv/t/playback-random-frame-stutter-caused-by-dropped-frames/609697/33 One person said they turned off the new player and it helped...I'll try...

Re: State of the art 4k movies from a technical view

Thank you all, I checked a lot of movies, seems hard to find a movie, which is not outsold, with natural scenes / landscapes. IMHO blurred fantasy scenes are not able to show the quality of a tv. Blade Runner is on my candidate list as well as Braveheart and Ghostbusters, but not happy with them 10...

Re: Lord of the Rings + The Hobbit 4K (Finally!)

Thanks for your post, it's full of useful info, particularly the part about Plex. I think I will leave the pause in as it seems to me that it's is merited for artistic reasons. Yeah, if you want a reminder to take a pee break, sure. But there are no 'artistic' reason for the break in the movie. Thi...

Re: Lord of the Rings + The Hobbit 4K (Finally!)

Not the issue. My nas is currently maxed out and has around 2.5tb left which will be gone soon. I need to build a bigger nas but it costs money. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk Yeah, full NAS is a pain. Looked hard at getting one for a long time but that issue is why I decided to stick with ke...

Where does Source Information - Comment come from? Disc or MakeMKV

My version of Ex Machina just got added after I submitted the tgz. I noticed that when I selected the disk the Comment says Hacksaw Ridge. Just curious as to whether that is just a MKV goof or if it a goof made on the disc itself which would be interesting. Doesn't affect anything to my knowledge, j...

Re: Avengers 4 endgame

I plan on picking up a different drive to try endgame. I’ve tried two different discs, cleaned the hell out of both of them(already brand new out of the box), tried full back up instead of making mkv, saving to usb drive......nothing works. The two disks error out at two different spots. One much f...

Re: Spider-Man Far From Home

Looks like Mike has gotten it added as my 'standard' disc from Walmart just started working so it is worth giving your rips a shot again.

Re: Manufacturing Defects as Protection?

I just had two Endgame discs fail (might have had a 3rd but Amazon raised the price so they only offered me refund, not replacement). There was nothing visible but in my (anecdotal) case I can't image it was intentional mastering errors to thwart rippers as the discs both got hung up on video playba...

1.14 has broken something so it won't read this disc (or apparently Wreck-it Ralph)

Re: MakeMKV to Handbrake for 4K (UHD)???

Thank you everyone for your support. This is all great information. I use a Drobo 5N as my Plex Media Server and it works great for both storage (up to 18TB) and to play back Blu-Ray movies after being encoded with Handbrake. I tried running a native Blu-Ray movie after ripping it through MakeMKV a...

Re: UHD FAQ

When I watch a UHD rip on a non-HDR TV or computer screen, why are the colors muted? HDR UHDs use Rec. 2020 / BT.2020, which is a 10-bit or 12-bit WCG (wide color gamut) color space (compared to Blu-rays, which use the Rec. 709 HDTV color space). If you view Rec. 2020 on a non-HDR monitor, the colo...

Re: MKV HDR?

Note the mkv container support is only HDR10, not DV. Conversations I've seen is that there is no eta nor expectation of ever having support.
