Great addition (KEYDB_HD.cfg) for HD DVD decryption

You can manually add keys to MakeMKV to get these things to work http://makemkv.com/faq/item/12/category/8 I put a file called KEYSDB_HD.cfg in my MakeMKV data directory, updated with any missing keys, and I was decrypting and ripping. Happy hunting! Thank you :D , @MetalDave for the hint - this me...

OK thank you, that's all I needed to know to get on with it.
I'll report back :)
So how did it go? My Buffalo drive really needed the LG LibreDrive FW (1.03) in order to read the UHD blu-ray discs.

Re: Read SACD

There are a few early SACD releases without encryption, readable by old Toshiba DVD-ROM drives - maybe this could be useful for a possible LibreDrive implementation.


On a somewhat similar note - how about a DVD-Audio ripping ability (not necessarily decryption) for MakeMKV?

Re: Is there a way to downgrade the firmware on a Buffalo BRUHD-PU3 from BU11 to BU10?

im not 100% sure but if you have a BRUHD-PU3 i think it is safe to flash. Having a Buffalo BRXL-PT6U2VB, I also suspect that it would be rather safe to flash a BU40N FW - but the more important question IMHO is whether it would be worth doing it. To get an answer to that, I'd have to rephrase my qu...

Re: Is there a way to downgrade the firmware on a Buffalo BRUHD-PU3 from BU11 to BU10?

I just used the tried and true LG BU40N_1.00.bin and got the same results but this was with the Buffalo BRXL-PT6U2VB slim drive so ymmv. Hi, so your crossflash enabled UHD-Blu-ray disc reading on the BRXL-PT6U2VB? @Billycar11 Concerning your two BU40N DE firmwares - what MK FW / drive type would th...

Re: Is a purchased reg. key only good on 1 PC?

You can install it on multiple computers, but the license is for one user ... No lending it to your friends, but you can run it on multiple computers yourself. IMHO this "little detail" should be mentioned on this subpage http://makemkv.com/buy/, as one could run this fine piece of software on his/...

historical anecdotes

Before Mr. bd-com built/cloned devices, he modified firmwares and before there was a M9702, boxes like the M9700 & M28 were shipped over the oceans. The mainboard of the M9700 looks like it was "borrowed" from the Philips BDP9700 (Mediatek MT8580 main SoC & Marvell 88DE2755 QDEO video postprocessor).

Re: A player without an optical drive, is like a car without wheels.

SACD Iso's Work Perfectly Fine! Ohh, so you have already tested this - NICE! Does it also offer DSD output via HDMI? anything in particular you want me to Test? Featurewise no, but if this Oppo-clone does support remote telnet connections we could find out what Linux kernel runs on and what Mediate...

A player without an optical drive, is like a car without wheels.

Nice looking TV you've got there spl147, is that a VIZIO P-Series 55 inch model?

Although you use a soundbar, do you care about SACD ISO support and would you like to test it on your "wonder box from the far east"?
