Re: All 4K Releases Spreadsheet

My thanks too!

Could please explain a little bit what "reference" and "standout" means. Am I right, that reference is "better" than "standout". But which criteria are used for "reference"? How much is personal taste included?

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 100...

State of the art 4k movies from a technical view

Maybe such a list exists already. I am looking for UHD / 4k movies which show the best technical quality (video and audio) at the moment. I know there is https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=22992#p95280, not sure what reference means, maybe this is what could be a filter for me. Not s...

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2020

Are there any silent / automatic / forced updates known using Windows? Windows makes updates if you want or not, can the dirve be updated with firmware automatically and you don't notice it as user?

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2020

You MIGHT need to 'right-click' on the MakeMKV icon & select "Run as administrator" I want to clarify, I want to flash the drive with the Windows pc, but I do not want to do backups with Windows. So SDFtool Flasher is a GUI which uses Makemkv? How can I run SDFtool Flasher with admin rights of Make...

https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=22896 Check the "enc?" checkbox only if your drive has an encrypted firmware on it (see list of encrypted firmware below). So Asus drives have no encrypted firmware? Edit: Sorry for my detailed questions, it is not so easy for me to try it out on th...

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2020

> If Windows detects the drive, you are good to go Hmm, at least for me, who is not so experienced with Windows, it can be confusing. The drive was recognized by the device manager (hopefully translated correctly into English), but was not shown in the file manager. After a few restarts it took a wh...

Re: SDFtool Flasher

Requirements: MakeMKV v1.15.1 (or higher) installed .NET Framework 4.7.2 Sorry, for this simple question. Since I am a linux user, I have to ask, does SDFtool Flasher install the requirements automatically, if not, how do you recommend to install NET Framework 4.7.2? Why do I need Makemkv?

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2020

All that is old news. If Windows detects the drive, you are good to go. Thanks, I asked because I use the latest Win 10 from October 2020. Any known problems with the latest Win 10? Link to MK FW pack in 1st post of this thread. Flash w/ SDFtool Flasher (instructions included). I remember, that SDF...

Is SATA port important / slave possible?

I have the system-disk at the 1st Master SATA port, can I put the bd-burner at 2nd slave or must the burner be connected to the 2nd master for flashing?

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2020

Ok, it appears you are confused.
Sorry, yes you are right. For some reasons I thought UHD = BD, which is not, while BD can have HD and UHD resolutions and what I wanted is UHD / 4k.

So I have to look for another drive and keep this drive as it is.

It's too old to ever do UHD It can read UHD / BD for sure, but my question is, if it can do BD-4k. In the 1st posting HL-DT-ST-BD-RE_ BH 16NS40-NS50 is mentioned. Please note, the date is fantasy it does not say 2 0 15, but 2 1 15 New Encrypted firmware List of Know Encrypted firmware (so far, any ...
