Re: Why two copies of the same UHD movie when ripped?

That would depend on the movie... Disney disks will have 2, sometimes more, copies, where the only difference is what language is used for the titles and credits.

Re: Goes back to start screen after starting encryption

Your video has the text all but invisible, so you cannot make out what is going on.

If you have debug logging turned on, please post the text from the status window, after you request the disk be loaded.

Emailing the dump file to svq@makemkv.com will get action faster than uploading here.

What does MakeMKV say in the information window about the drive?

Whether you NEED to flash it will be listed in the info window.

Re: Grantchester

The information in this topic apply to DVDs as well as Blurays. There are errors reading the directory structure, as well as reading the VOB files. The most usual cause for this is things like fingerprints or smudges on the disk, but even if the disk looks clean, it can still have a film on it that ...

Re: UHD volume key not found 1.15.3

Two different kinds of "hash keys"... One has the information for decoding UHD disks, the other is an on-disk table of information to verify that the contents were read correctly. In your case, the log is missing a message about "Downloading latest HK to ...", which would normally happen whenever a ...

Re: What is the cause of loss of video quality?

Not much to work from, but that bitrate indicates you're dealing with a UHD title, not "just" a Bluray. In which case, you are probably dealing with at least HDR, possibly DolbyVision. With Plex in the picture, the full dynamic range probably isn't available without some configuration.

In the GUI, select Help->Register, and re-enter the current beta key. That will reset the 30-day timer.

Re: MakeMKV Feature Request/Suggestion Thread

The unfortunate reality is that people simply do not use search to find out if there is an existing topic for their issue. Take the simple request for "add a way to unselect/deselect all titles"; it comes up at least once per month. Searching for "unselect" or "deselect" comes up with 190+ and 300+ ...

Re: Quality comparison

I will be looking for MakeMKV's default compression parameters later, to add to the analysis.
MakeMKV does no compression; what you get in the MKV is the video that was on the disk. So, as far as a comparison, you should consider it the starting point.

Re: Cannot open DVD Drive

Usually just pulling the power is enough to force a complete hardware reset... And a USB-powered drive loses power/resets as soon as you unplug the USB cable.
