But TV internal players aren't the best for playback, they lack chapters, may lack capacity for some audios (LG CX for example lacks DTS support).. lacks PGS support.. is it really worth it?
Your right, it probably isn’t worth the hassle, I have gone back to ripping FEL titles as Movie only ISO and watching on the Chinoppo, I upgraded my server with an extra 24tb of the Christmas break so I’ve got space to play with for a while.
Do love the convenience of Kodi / Plex/ HT4 though ☹️
Have you tried the method outlined here for integrating Emby with your chinoppo:

https://www.avpasion.com/foro/t/xnoppo- ... 9205.2779/

Seems promising and could be the best of both worlds if you can get it work.
Hi, I followed that thread last year just as they was testing and teasing with it, (that is the site I bought the unit through) but most users have been disappointed with it so I never gave it a go, the way I understand it is you browse the library on an external device and then ‘fling’ it to the Chinoppo which is neither here nor there to me.
It’s no biggy I was hoping for the holy grail of total integration and that Yuescope or somebody else had found a way to wrap Dual Stream into a format devices could decode fully.
Off topic: latest releases of DVD fab claim to mixing TrueHD into mp4 AND achieving playback via e-arc.
I don’t have an AVR capable of e-arc or the money for a Diva, anybody been able to try this? Is this where Youscope and others that where originally working on this project disappeared too, working for DVDfab?

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Is the red tint and FEL support such a big problem? Is it a problem for general watching? I'm pretty content and happy with my Shield, otherwise. Hi, I would say if you are content with the output of the shield, don’t see the red push and don’t see the difference in ‘some’ movies without the FEL la...

So oled tvs' internal media player and the oppo 203 are still the best ways to watch these DV remuxes?

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

yep, just sell that TV and get an LG lol. Even Dolby recommends to the colorist the LG C7 or newer for previewing. Not an option. I like Sony's motion handling and HDR10 8) New 2021 Bravias will support TV-led DV You can change the tone curve and roll off in the LG to mimick the Sony with Calman, c...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

The CX can do TV led Dolby Vision so it has 2 decoders, so no discussion. What is more likely is the second decoder is crippled in firmware for media file playback. Have you tried built in Plex app from NAS? Yep, LG internal player/Plex. Firmware crippled makes sense, sucks, but makes sense. Above ...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Of course there is an issue. If you see the white sky is pumping / picture is to dark, the (F)EL is not decoded ! in my opinion the CX can only decode the Metadata (RPU) of DV, not the second HEVC stream . maybe the older LG TV can do, I don´t know... to find out, I uploaded the samples for you.

according to rtings: C8 / C9 / CX https://i.ibb.co/zJ1bDsb/c8.png https://i.ibb.co/Y3Lx71d/c9.png https://i.ibb.co/s6Kpzp0/cx.png peak brightness is better on C9 but overall the C8 seem brighter especially at 100% Probably because the abl isn’t as aggressive, tbh I also have a C7 (same chip as C8 I...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

It has a much better peak processing in HDR content compared to the C8. Any proof on this? Because measurements show the CX have lower peak brightness in hdr compared to previous oled generations. Ok so I I ‘presumed’ a little,‘I have the C9 and that definitely has better peak processing than the C...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

With the new Firmware CX9 plays DV DL mp4. Tested with James Ryan. I think it's a little dark. edit: it is the same as when I create a DV SL from Private Ryan -> it plays only BL+RPU, not the EL. Picture is falsified :x I think that the TV is not able to decode 2x HEVC at the same time. So the purc...

...only the LG OLEDS (mixed report on the current X-generation ones) will be able to play FEL mp4s. @shawnc22 are you able to elaborate at all, or provide a link to more information, about the compatibility of the LG OLED X-Generation? I currently have a C8, but am looking at getting a CX. But I'll...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Blame Sony. Dolby set out with good intentions and now hardware manufacturers are calling the shots. the problem is the approach, in player-led LLDV the TV/sink must pass over all calibration parameters and current settings/values (whatever can be passed via HDMI, EDID etc), and based off that the ...
