Re: Same episodes, different duration

Interesting. Thanks for the info. Most likely the Pal disc played speeded up then.

Same episodes, different duration

Don't know whether I should ask in this forum, but you chaps know a thing or two about videos , so - I ripped Inspector Lewis DVD using MakeMKV (I think, it was a while ago), and now I'm ripping the bluray versions and it seems the bluray versions are longer than the DVDs. Looking at some of the epi...

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2020

Thanks for all the help folks, including the hint about the update tool.

Hopefully I'll have a go in the next few days, but if there's one thing I'm good at its prevaricating...

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2020

Thanks very much. Yes, I use MakeMKV. So hopefully, when I'm brave enough to try, that will make the command as per your video - makemkvcon64.exe f --all-yes -d D: rawflash -i C:\Users\ME\Downloads\(Modified) ASUS ODD FW Changer (24.08.2019) + UHD Friendly Firmwares + Latest MK Pack (15.04.2020)\mk-...

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2020

Apologies, as I'm sure you get these questions all the time, but - Have just bought (but not yet installed) a BH16NS55 with firmware 1.04 on it, which seems to mean additional downgrade checks but not encrypted. So, looking at the new instructions (and older bits) and new video, it seems there is a ...

Re: Star Trek TNG

Seems to have worked so far, touch wood. Only Handbraked Season 1 Disc 1 but its chopped the blank ending off OK - finishes with CBS thingy then the end. Its probably just luck in that I'm just keeping all the English tracks and it seems the longer ones causing this little glitch are European / Japa...

Re: Star Trek TNG

Well, not sure what you mean by playback environment, unless you mean using vlc. Also haven't got as far as the episode you mentioned yet. OTOH, using MediaInfo to look at the episode 'The Battle', it says General Duration 46m03s, Video Duration 45m30s, Audio #1,2,3 Duration 45m30s...But Audio Durat...

Star Trek TNG

Am finally catching up with ripping The New Generation bluray box set. Am wondering if anyone found (for season one so far) that the length given is invariably longer than the length of the episode i.e. the episode length (in vlc) is 46m03s (a popular number) but the actual episode finishes about 30...

Re: What is the correct play list [insert title here]?

Any thoughts on whether I should try this Java Runtime thing for a PBS series bluray (Unforgotten, 400+ playlists) or the PowerDVD method or something else please ?

Re: What is the correct play list [insert title here]?

Can I just please ask, as of March 2020, the best way to (try to) deal with this playlist obfuscation thing for non Lionsgate stuff, in this case a bluray PBS series. Thanks.

Re: Alien 40th Anniversary 4K - volume key unknown

Basically Alien wouldn't rip so I read the Alien thread, i.e. this one and sent a dump. I waited. Then downloaded the hashed.txt file but it still wouldn't rip. Re-downloaded it a few times just to have a look but didn't see any new info for Alien. Saw that Daniel Craig stuff had started working eve...

Re: Alien 40th Anniversary 4K - volume key unknown

I sent the dump on Saturday. Anyone know how long these things normally take - am I in too much of a rush ?

Re: Alien 40th Anniversary 4K - volume key unknown

Thanks for the info. Assuming I managed to download the correct file to the correct directory, it still gave the same error, so I'll try sending that dump file.
