Re: Converting DTS-HD MA or ripping the same as LPCM

Here's a random blu-ray backup I happened to have handy.

Re: Converting DTS-HD MA or ripping the same as LPCM

Even if you don't convert the audio into FLAC or LPCM, you'll get two audio tracks, a DTS-HD MA track and a regular DTS track or a TrueHD track and a AC-3 track. https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo is handy tool for looking at that stuff. (Also available to install via Homebrew on macOS.) For example...

Re: Purchasing bd drive advice for archive / makemkv (late 2022)

Hopefully you've seen the Ultimate UHD Drives Flashing Guide post with the list of recommended drives. I know your drive will be external, but you can also consider a regular internal drive and put it in an external case. I have 3 'internal' drives on my desk in external enclosures connected to my c...

Re: Converting DTS-HD MA or ripping the same as LPCM

The lossless audio formats DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD both have this notion of a 'lossy core' that's used as a fallback mechanism for playback systems that can't process their respective lossless audio stream. MakeMKV splits the lossy core out into its own track. It does this by default re...

Re: Converting DTS-HD MA or ripping the same as LPCM

Does it have to be LPCM or would FLAC work? I ask because the FLAC conversion profile is built in by default, making it easy to do on-the-fly audio conversions . In any case, you need to Export Mode enabled in MakeMKV. (MakeMKV Preferences -> General Tab -> Expert Mode checkbox) Then, when you've go...

Re: Incredibles 2. What's the correct one

As Woodstock said, most Disney and Pixar movies have multiple versions on the disc. Usually the opening and closing credits are in different languages. On blu-rays, it is relatively easy to make a decrypted backup of a movie and figure out which title is which. In North America, usually the title '0...

Your log in the first post suggests you are opening a file on your hard drive, not the optical disc. How was this file created?

Scroll down on that post until you see the section titled:

You might be able to recover.

Re: No Longer Able to Rip after MacOS 13.0.1 Ventura

Have you tried power cycling your optical drive? I'm not running Ventura, so this is just a guess.

Re: DTS Audio / 5.1 audio track to Dolby Digital Audio / 5.1

New TVs do not support DTS Audio. Is it possible to transcode a DTS Audio / 5.1 audio track to Dolby Digital Audio / 5.1 without additional steps? Certainly some new TVs support DTS audio. In any case, MakeMKV has a thing called conversion profiles . A conversion profile can be used to do on-the-fl...

Re: Ripping Issues - Noise and delays

The one thing I NEVER found in them was where they connected to the internet for their fiber network. I would have SERIOUSLY considered starting one of these, especially if I thought I could turn it into a bit of income long term while working on maintaining it. I would LOVE to be able to get somet...

More information! I think this tells us something, but I'm not sure what. I got up and went into my study this morning and the drive was still making that noise. I thought, "It's STILL ripping that one BD?!?" But then when I hit a key and the screeensaver stopped, I saw that MakeMKV had s...

Re: Ripping Issues - Noise and delays

I'm not ripping as much as I used to. With rural internet, I ripped about 8TB of TV shows (ripped and saved at about 1GB/hr - it was a compromise for quality that upscaled easily and space), and then our entire movie collection. Streaming has only lately become a useable option without tracking ban...
