Re: "Fake playlist" protection - help needed

It would be good though if MakeMKV could expand its database to include the correct playlist for a given disc once it has been identified by users.

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

Follow-up to my previous post, I just tried the Plex app on the AppleTV for two versions of Spiderman Homecoming, one with TrueHD audio and one with the HD audio reencoded to FLAC. To my surprise, the version with the FLAC audio played with DV according to my AVR and my TV, the other version came u...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

You need a Shield to get DV playback from an MKV. Hi - I took this advice, and bought an Nvidia Shield, enabled DV on it, and played my DV extracted MKV using the shield Plex app, and am still only getting HDR playback - any ideas? The metadata for the MKV file has DV listed as “true.” Ok, the issu...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

I'm having the same issue as bostoneddie. Dolby Vision only plays on a spiderman far from home rip if I use AC3. Trying to use atmos gives me a direct playback error (which then transcodes the audio and reverts to regular hdr). This is confirmed a problem with plex/shield correct? Yes, this is my e...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

It honestly doesn't matter if the Nvidia DV decoder crashes during transcoding. If any part of the playback stream (audio, video, or even pgs subtitles) has to be transcoded, then all parts of the stream will be transcoded. Since your 4k video ends up having to be transcoded because of the audio st...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

Hmm, interesting. DV does indeed work on Disney+ via the Shield. I usually only rip the main audio track to MKV but I’ll experiment with ripping others. So it does look like this is an audio playback chain issue. If Plex is passing AC3 directly it appears to successfully trigger DV. If transcoding ...

1.04 is not encrypted so don't tick the 'enc' box and try again.

Re: MakeMKV 1.15.4

Thanks for the comment, its super helpful. Does makemkv rip dual layer disks to single layer DV MKVs, or does it remain a dual layer DV MKV? Actually, it wasn't super helpful at all. MakeMKV produces a dual layer , single track MKV with DV. Plex on the Nvidia Shield can play these back. (Note that ...

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2020

Hey guys, I just bought a BH16NS55 with 1.03 firmware. What exactly are my options for UHD support? I think this is all very confusing. In the pack there are following options: - BH16NS55 1.05 - WH16NS60 1.03 - (old) BH16NS55 1.03 - (old) BH16NS55 1.04 - (old) WH16NS60 1.01 - (old) WH16NS60 1.02 In...

I just bought an LG BH16NS55 today, manufactured March 2020 with a 1.04 FW, is this viable for flashing or should i try one of the other models?
In a word, yes.

Flash the MK version of 1.04, then you can cross flash if you want to.

Re: Official Dolby Vision MKV spec support

You guys just need to buy more storage. All this muxing, shrinking, remuxing, time, stress, electricity is costing you a lot more than another 10TB hard drive.

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

Hi, when I try to rip a movie, I'm getting 2 almost identical options. 1 with chapters etc and 1 without. I thought that this was the dual layers and that when I clicked MakeMKV the 2 options would have been converted to 1. This was not the case and I was left with 2 separate MKV movies. Was I supp...
