Re: .iso better quality than .mkv made with makemkv. why?

Does that only happen with VLC, or does MPC also show a difference?

Almost looks like a difference between 0-256 and 16-235 RGB ranges.

Re: Episode order on disc

Many TV series have episodes on disc out of chronoligical order. To me knowledge, the best you can do is hope for a production code at the end of the credits for each episode and check this against the listing at thetvdb.com This is certainly the case for The Vampire Diaries. Other series have no pr...

Re: Unable to burn Black Panther UHK 4k

Assume there are several releases with different keys.

I'm unable to rip my UK Batman Begins, despite there being several keys for it already.

Re: UHD Ripping failing all of a sudden...

I've never had a read problem with a new disc but plenty with my older DVDs and Blu-Rays; I always clean them with furniture polish and a microfibre cloth!

Re: UHD Ripping failing all of a sudden...

All your logs have a hashcheck error before the rip fails.

/errors/hashcheck/

"Getting this error usually means a failing drives."

Got another drive you can check with?

Re: Ripping X-Files(Akte X) Box Set (Limited Edition) correc

I've got the French box set, it's the same discs for all of Europe AFAIK... might as well buy the cheapest if you don't mind the boxes not being in a foreign language, besides I'm never going to look at the boxes once it's ripped. All the X-Files episodes are ~45 minutes long, you can discard any ti...

Re: Star Wars a new hope has main movie split in 2 files

Mine was one file... just rip the two files and use mkvmerge/mkvtoolnix to join them.

Re: NCIS Season 10 Region 2

Done. Been so long since I've encountered a disc with a problem that I'd forgotten about forcing a debug log.

Can't believe this season 9 and 10 of this show have been released on single layer discs. The picture quality sucks.

Re: How to tell which title is which episode of TV series?

I always rip each title the play the beginning (a couple of seconds) of each episode off the disc and MKV file to match them up. Seldom do 2 episodes on the same disc have the same beginning. It's a little bit of the pain in the ass but gets the job done for now. This is pretty much what I do. Play...
