Hello would it be possible to make a list on this Topic of players reading mkv DV:

player X ---> mkv dv profil X --> TV pana X

thank
Shield 2019 Pro (PLEX client) ----> GAMMA Profile 7 ----> LG CX
If you have the Shield, why are you going through all this trouble to generate a DV mkv? Just use makemkv 1.15.3 and call it a day.

Sorry to be "that guy", but is there a method to convert a DV .mp4 file to a DV .mkv file which plays on the shield 2019 hidden somewhere? Came across something interesting to try out :P

On the first post of the Makemkv 1.5.3 thread Mike gives a ffmpeg command line to convert back to MKV then run it through Makemkv.

Can anyone enlighten me why the following happens for me?

Sony AG9 Oled TV and Nvidia shield 2019

When playing profile7 mkv files from makemkv, that also contain TrueHD audio, i only get HDR
If i change audiotrack to normal ac3 track, i get dolby vision

Im using the TV builtin speakers to eliminate any compability issues with AVR etc.

Anyone can help?

edit: im using the plex app

If you're playing on the Plex app, you need to be direct playing both video and audio. If TrueHD has to be transcoded, the video changes to direct streaming which does not trigger Dolby Vision.

By connecting the Shield to a device that can handle TrueHD, so it has to be your AVR and not the TV. If your AVR cannot handle TrueHD, then unfortunately you're out of luck.

So i would need a capable AVR and use eARC from TV and it should work?

No just get a capable AVR and connect it straight to the AVR.

I’m trying to make a dual track mp4 file of watchmen with the old version of mp4muxer which worked fine for many movies (at least 20). The issue I’m having with Watchmen is that mp4muxer stops immediately without any error message, it juste creates a 0mb mp4 file and stops instantly.
