Re: G.I Joe Rise of the Cobra & Retaliation

I had same issue with Cars 3 UHD. 12.2.3 failed with a hash check error on an ASUS drive, and a LG drive. Reverting back to 12.2.2 and it ripped fine with no errors.

Re: MakeMKV to Handbrake for 4K (UHD)???

Some of us who have paid for these UHD disks want the video quality we paid for, so the movies don't get run through Handbrake and degraded to lower quality video. If you are going to do HEVC encoding you'll need hardware support to accomplish it. Thank you for your reply. I know it isn't a Handbrak...

Re: UHD playback on new VLC 3.0

Ironically my mac pro 2013 is playing back 24fps UHD movies with no frame skipping at all, but brand new imacs with hardware support built into the Intel chips are skipping frames.

This is loads better than VLC 2.0. I couldn't play UHD disks at all.

Re: UHD drives

I did the same thing. Removable media drives don't last forever, and this hole will eventually be plugged by the drive manufacturers. Decided to buy a second ASUS BW-16D1HT for peace of mind. First one was Dec 2016 3.00. New one is Jan 2017 3.00, and is also working just fine. My regular Blu-ray dri...

Re: How to Convert MKV to M2TS

I don't think your going to be able to view HDR content on a non-HDR TV without it looking washed out. It's just not going to look right.

Re: UHD support

Looks like Asus has just brought out 3.0.2 firmware for the asus BW-16D1HT as of 1/15/2018. I bet it closes the hole.

Re: UHD drives

You need a drive that is UHD 'friendly'. That is, it's not completely compliant with the security used to protect these disks. It's this non-compliance that allows the OS to read from these disks. Here's the 'UHD friendly' list from the DEUHD folks: LG BE16NU50(external, USB, recommended) LG WH16NS4...

Re: Adding Keys?

Another slew of keys published on doom9 today, but with the cryptic comment "The magic spring dries out".

That doesn't sound good.

Re: 1080p vs 2160P

Yes, your HDR backups will look like washed out crap when your TV doesn't recognize that HDR content is being presented to it. I would recommend getting an Nvidia Shield with the Kodi or SPMC apps to properly play back your 4k HDR content. Recommended settings for the Shield and SPMC/Kodi are: https...

Re: Processing UHD rips with Handbrake or other software

Nvidia Shield with Kodi or SPMC makes a great Media Center. No lag on playing H265 except at some of the most absurd rates that you can find with these Jellyfish test suites.

That's 10 SVQ's you should have submitted.

VUKs

New UHD VUKs released on Doom9 two days ago. You need these to back up your UHD disks with Makemkv. Add them to your KEYDB.cfg file.

Re: UHD support

I just got my Asus BW-16D1HT installed and appears to read my UHD discs just fine, though unfortunately the 3 discs I have (Fate of the Furious, Fantastic Beasts, and Wonder Woman) don't appear to have any leaked keys yet. Still, this is definitely progress, I want UHD on my Plex server! Merry Chri...
