I tried JRiver and it actually worked with the menus! WOW! Although I loath the interface and you can't play blu rays off the disc.
Of course you can. Integrate MakeMKV with it and you're done.

Re: Using LibreDrives Unrestricted Read Speed in Other Software

I think that's just how it's being reported but I don't know if it's actually making it all regions or not and whether that would impact DVD ripping or not. It's been so long since I've had to rip a DVD lol. Power cycling the drive will remove the firmware extensions from the drive's memory, so, yes...

Re: Using LibreDrives Unrestricted Read Speed in Other Software

I've been doing this intentionally for many months. I have a script that I wrote that enables LibreDrive and then creates a protected iso. Can't really help you with dvd but I've been doing this with bd and uhd quite successfully. And yes speed control works great with this method. Bus encryption is...

Additionally the HD Fury can force LLDV.

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

So I'd still lose lossless audio formats which is also a deal breaker for me. I didn't build an ATMOS audio system for no reason. UGH. Yea, I agree, we may eventually get to a full solution but we appear to be falling just short. Fortunately I still have my UB820 for now.

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Is the firestick only capable of LLDV? Is that why it was used or was it a TV limitation? It's really too bad that the firestick can't handle lossless audio. That's more of a deal breaker for me than the seemingly better DV implementation. Wait it can't do lossless audio?? Yea, ok, that's a deal br...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I've not played on the firestick yet but that requires FEL->MEL conversion. Once that process gets nailed down by you adventurous people, maybe Mike can add an option to do so in MakeMKV to make it seamless. :D I should try a couple of my MEL movies with plex on the firestick and see how that goes. ...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Truly unknown. We're not sure exactly what the issue is that's causing it. It's very possible the SHIELD just doesn't support decoding the parts of the DV spec that UHD is using. In which case, nope, it'll never get fixed. It's designed to play streaming DV content which is encoded differently than...

It's one of those "once you see it it can't be unseen" kind of things.

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I just watched Skyfall last night on the SHIELD and I concur with the red push everywhere. The SHIELD just doesn't want to play nice. :(

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

Jeeze, you want it to serve breakfast in the morning, too? :D LOL! Just kidding. Yea, I think we'll see an evolution of things over the next few months as issues are found and fixed and new things are uncovered. We're at the beginning here.

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

Perfect. We're pretty close to complete on tools for this now. The golden age of DV is upon us. Now if the shield can fix the remaining issues (if they can be fixed) then we really will be golden.
