Re: Playing UHD discs directly via libmmbd

Thanks alot for excellent tip Chewi! I tried again with MPC-HC and this time used its "Open DVD/BD" functionality. Now it works, even for UHD BD. Of course MPC-HC cannot do full menus but it allows easily to check certain playlists/titles containing the actual feature. Actually very nice as you can...

Re: Playing UHD discs directly via libmmbd

How is libmmbd decrypting supposed to work? I read instructions and one thread here where it was stated "it just works" when it's enabled. I have understood that is supposed to work in the background on-the-fly? I have enabled settings in the configuration page of makeMKV. Both win system level and ...

Re: Mass Disc Defects Anecdote

Long story short is seems there are some major issues with discs being made now. A big bummer as dealing with mass returns is just another reason for retailers to shop carrying physical media I think these bad discs are almost always triple decker BD100 discs, which are pretty common now. Quality o...

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2020

BU40N > BU40N 1.03MK What is the best FW for LG BU40N slim drive? Is it still 1.03MK, the latest MK or original FW 1.00? Some people seem to suggest 1.00. If you have 1.00 leave it but I recommend 1.03 for most people because it is a simple 1 step flash and done less risk of bricking the drive 1.00...

Re: Buffalo BRXL-PT6U2VB BN12 revision, MK ready?

So, it sounds like I should avoid Buffalo drive and go with real LG BU40N slim?

Yeah, I'm aware of absurd requirements concerning official UHD BD playback in PC realm. Not really something I would venture myself. I trust my Oppo 203 and Chinoppo players.

Re: Buffalo BRXL-PT6U2VB BN12 revision, MK ready?

I haven't bought it yet. Would LG BU40N and external USB3 enclosure be better option than this Buffalo drive? I believe they are same unit, Buffalo is just rebadged. I think LG BU40N is also official UHD BD drive so it would work with Powerdvd Ultra.

Re: Buffalo BRXL-PT6U2VB BN12 revision, MK ready?

If bought now and is new stock, what is the FW version in it. Is it still BN12? I'm planning to buy EU version. Precise model is BRXL-PT6U2VB-EU. Is it ready for 4K backupping if I flash it with MK BU40N-BN12 fw (HL-DT-ST-BD-RE_BU40N-BN12-0M01001-211905141415.bin) ? What if it comes with BN13 firmwa...

Re: Zombieland 4K UHD AACS 2.1

Why would they release AACS2.1 titles in pairs? Where does this information come from? Is it a cost factor?

Moreover, why use v2.1 on catalog titles and not brand new ones? Mind-boggling...

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

What would be the best FW option for my LG BH16NS55 drive (EU) with original 1.02 fw. Currently it works flawlessly and LibreDrive is supported. Would upgrade/sidegrade/downgrade to some other fw offer improvements like even faster ripping speed or no "sleep bug"? Any suggestions?
