Re: "automatic sdf downloading is disabled or failed" while decrypting

I've done this as well on a laptop; used a mifi connected to Verizon. Same issue. I reported a few days ago that the error disappeared on it's own but it has now returned. For both machines, regardless of Spectrum or Verizon or iPhone connection (tried that as well). I get that it is probably DNS bu...

Re: "automatic sdf downloading is disabled or failed" while decrypting

When I nslookup that name I get a loopback address. 127.0.0.54. But I $^!& you not, the error stopped occurring maybe 20 minutes ago. I had even installed it on my work laptop and used a mifi device and had the same issue on it. But then went back to my makemkv machine and, lo and behold, MakeMKV v1...

Re: "automatic sdf downloading is disabled or failed" while decrypting

This is all information, but not helpful information. Someone mentioned use different dns server. I did, used a vpn to bypass my ISP intercepting and redirecting and whatever else, pointed my makemkv machine to google dns at 8.8.8.8. Nothing changed, still getting download error. What is even more ...

Re: "automatic sdf downloading is disabled or failed" while decrypting

I may have missed or mis-understood something in this thread then. What is the actual server being looked for by MakeMKV to download a new/updated sdf.bin file?

And, as a side note, why does the manual placing of the sdf file not work? Or not work as a replacement for the auto-download.

Thanks.

Re: "automatic sdf downloading is disabled or failed" while decrypting

I thought using a vpn would allow me to bypass the ISP. Wouldn't I be tunneling past them and they'd not be able to intercept the encrypted data? When I get on vpn and change my local dns to google (8.8.8.8 ) and flush the dns cache, I lookup hkdatastore.tk and it returns on-existent domain. This is...

Re: "automatic sdf downloading is disabled or failed" while decrypting

I tried the vpn route (Windscribe) but it got worse. With it running it no longer resolves hkdatastore.tk and makemkv still fails the download. I have Spectrum as an ISP and am using their wifi router, so I cannot change the DNS servers on the router, but I have changed them on my computer and flush...

Re: "automatic sdf downloading is disabled or failed" while decrypting

Hello all, I've read through this entire thread and while it mostly makes sense, the root cause doesn't seem to be mine (but same symptom). I can download the sdf.bin and put in the data dir, but it doesn't solve it. I can get to every http link listed. I can resolve hkdatastore.tk (23.195.69.106) a...
