Re: Best Audio Option For Stereo Playback

I'm not sure what you mean by worse. 2 channels is worse that 5.1? Or something else?

Do you have a playback situation that can't down mix a surround sound mix to stereo such that you need a stereo only track in your .mkv file?

Re: Chapters have inaccurate timestamps on all BD and UHD BD

I'm not aware of a way to edit the timestamps of chapters in MakeMKV. I think you'd have to do it after the fact with MKVToolNix or some other tool.

Out of curiosity, why does the discrepancy matter to you?

Re: Noob .mkv format on AppleTV/MacOS

- Is there any benefit to using Handbrake to convert .mkv to AppleTV 4K format (2160P60 HEVC Surround) if the original DVD was 1080P old format (I have DVD's from 5-10 years ago I want to rip). I understand that I won't get better video miraculously - but is it dumb to do this maybe due to increase...

Re: Noob .mkv format on AppleTV/MacOS

- Can AppleTV play native .mkv files? I understand that you use VLC Player on Mac to play these files - but what about playing the files on AppleTV? Which app are you intending to use on the AppleTV? If you intend to use the built-in orange 'Computer' app to play files via Home Sharing , then, no, ...

Re: USB Adapter Problems

What if you try a different USB port, perhaps on a different USB bus?

Re: AV sync

Sometimes the player is the culprit. Sometimes the computer isn't powerful enough. Sometimes IO bandwidth is limited. For instance, my computer is on the edge of being powerful enough to play 4K rips and sometimes it manifests as the audio being out of sync with the video.

Re: Backup vs MKV files

I bet a decrypted backup would work just as well. It has been my experience that trying to rip the same problematic disc in the same drive sometimes produces different results. Reading from an optical disc seems like an inherently error prone process and sometimes you get more lucky than other times...

Re: Help With Creating A MKV File?

Does the video file show up in Windows Explorer or macOS Finder? It has been a long time since I encountered an Enhanced audio CD, but I wouldn't be surprised if the video was just a file on the disc in a second session after the red book audio session at the beginning.

Re: Experience with new ASUS BW-16D1HT

UHDs are extremely sensitive to any kind of dirt or oils. I try to never touch the business side of the disc, only handling the discs at the edges. The data density of UHDs is very high compared to other kinds of discs. The same sized disc was used to hold a CD, which held about 700MB. UHDs might ho...

Re: Is ripping 4K Blu Rays Practical?

A RAID makes it easy to have a volume that's larger than a single drive and makes it easy to have some tolerance for a failed drive. But that isn't strictly necessary for storing your movies. You could easily get a large drive, put it in your computer and put movies on it until it fills up which mig...

Re: Batman v Superman - Ultimate Edition

Blu-ray.com suggests there are multiple blu-ray discs in the package. Could the theatrical release be on the other disc?
