Re: Pioneer BDR-XD05TB an Asus clone?

Now I have another drive, an external Pioneer BDR-XD05TB. The firmware version made me wondering if it is an Asus drive. It has the firmware 3.10 and I used the same version to cross flash my LG and then put on the 1.03mk firmware. Do you get anything in "LibreDrive information" on main page for th...

Re: MakeMKV 1.14.2 and Kodi 18.0

For Linux, a work around can be achieved by editing MakeMKV source code before building https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16824#p61608 . For MacOS, we don't have access to the MakeMKV source code. A solution can be had, however, by editing libbluray source code and building libluray...

Is it possible to document the discatt format?
It is not only documented, but the libdriveio library that creates and parses it is open-source (LGPL license). All of this is part of MakeMKV open-source package for Linux (library obviously can be built anywhere).

Re: Disable LibreDrive

Here are the instruction how to disable LibreDrive runtime for any particular drive. First, you have to figure out the drive id - open the log file and look for the string that lloks similar to "SDF v05c: ASUS_BC-12B1ST___b_3.00_211512151340_SIKxxxxxx". The single string containing drive name, versi...

Anyway, nothing major. Just a thought.
This is not the question you've asked, but the answer may fit - enable "ask for single drive mode" in preferences.

Re: Can't find any usable optical drives

The 1.14.4 has an option to install an optical drive access service - with this service MakeMKV does not need to be run as administrator, and should be immune to Controlled Folder sandbox.

Re: 4k solo mystery

I hesitate to post this here but the ATMOS in MKV problem has plagued a lot of us for a while. Incredibles 2 was notorious for issue, but, it's really a problem with ATMOS in MKV in general. What I hesitate posting is that another product has solved this problem once and for all. But this is the Ma...

Is there an additional step I missed? I have not yet inserted a UHD disk as I am planning to get my first ones after I get this to work!
You need to make sure that MakeMKV can download updates, or you have to download the latest SDF.bin manually.

Re: DVDFab now supports Japanese UHD BDAV discs

This is Japanese-only thing for now. One can record UHD TV broadcast to blu-ray media (with appropriate hardware recorder). The resulting disc is UHD BDAV with AACS 2 protection.

Re: Test for those who are brave, BU40N-N 1.02

What's the advantage of 1.03 over 1.02? Likely - none. The 1.03 MK that we have now thanks to asmcom offers a somewhat cleaner downgrade path. So if you got a drive with 1.03 it might be beneficial to stay on 1.03MK, as it can be flashed without updating the bootloader. But I see zero reasons to sw...
