Suggest 4K UHD PC Monitors for Watching 4K Movies

I would like to hear recommendations and opinions for PC 4k UHD monitors to watch 4K UHD movies. I’ve first used the Search function for this topic but no results shown. I’m more interested in PC Monitors and not HD TVs. • What brand, screen size of 4k Monitor are you using and is the picture qualit...

I haven’t tried MMKV v1.14.2 yet. Using 3 Pioneer BD drives alternately. Pioneer BDR-207 DBK connected externally via ...

Re: Pioneer BDR-2209 experiences?

Yep the Pioneer BDR-2209 won’t be able to read 4K UHD discs. It was mentioned in another thread that Pioneer Optical Drives doesn’t work with 4K UHD. You’ll need either the Asus BW-16D1HT drive or the LG WH16NS40 with the correct firmware. As for general experience on the Pioneer BDR-2209, works gre...

Re: mac 1.14.1 problems

Tried MKV 1.14.1 on my Mac OSX and works fine in ripping Blu-Rays and DVDs. I’m using a Pioneer BDR-2209 UBK and Pioneer BDR-207dbk and works well with MakeMKV the past 5+ years.

Re: LG BH16NS55 - no disc inserted

@vonMalm Not sure if this is the solution, try cleaning the disc by wiping it with a micro-fiber lens cleaner cloth and hope it works.

Re: Looking for ready-to-use Asus BW-16D1HT or flash-service

Sorry to hear that the shipping cost was expensive. I was assuming the cost to ship to Germany would be acceptable. Hope you would be able to find alternate solutions.
