Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Did anyone try this method of shrinking the BL and running in through yusetool? If you want a different DV profile, it should work. Give it a go! Thats just it, i cant get it working. Im running yusetool after shrinking the BL, which goes to 100% but the window remains open and i never get the "fin...

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

I just flashed my drive to NS55 1.04-MK and I got no warning at all. It simply worked fine. But when I put NS60 1.02-MK on the drive, I got the error I talked about with no way to continue. So I would say it works for SOME firmware (probably those that make a drive truly friendly) but not others. T...

It doesn't. It links to their downgrade ripo...er software. Just an ok button. No yes/no. No don't show checkbox. I just downloaded and installed the latest version (11.0.9.6) and got the same popup message. Here you go. DVDFab latest version message.jpg After ticking and clicking "No", I put a dis...

Bugger. I wonder if you can roll back to DVDFab11_x64(11.0.8.7), do the things I did, then update to newer version again?

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Cool, I'm glad they worked for you. Here are the steps to create them. For this example, I used Birds of Prey which is MEL. Just change the inputs/outputs to your source. 1. Extract the BL and EL to separate hevc files and any audio tracks you want. I prefer to use eac3to for this task. You can use...

Re: command line utils for flashing my new Archgon UHD?

Thanks all for the help and material. I think I'm good to go now except for two last questions 1. Regarding which Libre Firmware to use - I've narrowed them down to two. From these two I'm unable to tell which one (if either) is ok to use. Potential LibreDrive Firmware: HL-DT-ST-BD-RE_BU40N-U101-MM...

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

Just got around to testing. Indeed, there is no way to override the firmware check. That's annoying. It'll make life harder for some people. I just re-installed the trial (DVDFab11_x64(11.0.8.7)) that I had downloaded in May. The popup message I am talking about is below. dFab_incompatible_firmware...

I guess I can experiment with it tomorrow as I've got a lifetime license. I don't ever really use it but I bought it as insurance just in case. I can try flashing different firmware and see what happens. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk Cool!! The results might help some folk that like to use b...

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

Have you tried using WH16NS60 1.02-MK and just ignoring the DVDFab incompatible firmware issue? I tested this a while back on the trial version of DVDFab with BH16NS55 1.04-MK. When DVDFab gives the incompatible firmware error, I just clicked "do not show this again" and then used DVDFab as normal....

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

Yes I'm using ASUS_ODD_FW_Changer_(Modified).exe to flash my drive. Each time without anything else starting. I reflash now WH16NS60 1.02MK and that's working well on windows and with MakeMKV. But this firmware is sadly not compatible with DVDFab... None of the DE versions that I tried from the sta...

Is it possible to re encode the BL.hevc and use that along with the EL.hevc to make a smaller sized Dolby Vision capable file?
Yes, check my posts in this very thread. (page #170)

Re: UHD Friendly & Official drives for sale & flashing service (currently Australia & NZ only)

Thank you for this helpful information. I have a laptop so I need a USB drive, but I want to avoid those laptop style drives which require you to 'click' the disk into the drive. I am worried about long term durability. From what I can tell all of the items on the list are either desktop drives or ...
