Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Don't worry about 12 bit color. Your TV can't handle it anyway. According to this guy, we haven't even reached the potential of 10 bit yet.

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

So, i've about had it with the shield... the ugoos seems dead on arrival.... the oppo 203 is too damn expensive.... the chinoppo seems dodgy at best (and is also too expensive..... and the cc with google tv dosen't do lossless... That pretty much leaves me with the option of the X700... Correct? Al...

Re: Good MacOS App for UHD mkvs?

I"ve never had any pausing issues with UHD disks and VLC on any of my macs. Are you playing them across a network, or are they stored on the mac that you are playing them on?

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

make sure the Plex app on your Shield is updated. that's the most common issues I’m on: PMS 1.21.0.3711 Plex client app 8.11.0.22186 Should be adequate, no? Yeah that looks good. Have you double checked with mediainfo that the files do include DV? Also what is your display mode set on for the Shiel...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

I'm pretty sure that the firetv Cube doesn't support the dolby vision profile 7 used on UHD Bluray disks. The ShieldTV is about the only device that does. Hi, if I want a device to play 4k remux (hdr10 and dolby vision) and 1080 remux, between a fire tv cube and a shield tv pro, which one do you rec...

Re: Lord of the Rings + The Hobbit 4K (Finally!)

That's probably a good way to destroy your disk and your drive. Maybe try this instead. https://www.amazon.com/CD-Stomper-Pro-Labeling-System/dp/B00002SA8D FOTREXTDISC1.jpg Success!! I can't explain why it worked, but it worked. What I can tell you... This is FotR Extended Disc 1 where I could previ...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Is anyone else having issues with Plex playing Dolby Vision from their MKV's since the last ShieldTV update? I read that the Plex programmers are working with Nvidia to find out why the DV decoder keeps crashing, amongst other issues (colors). It almost seems like Nvidia has little interest in their...

Re: Official Dolby Vision MKV spec support

Still no Plex 8.8.0 available on Google Play for my Nvidia Shield TV yet. Their 'staged' rollout is a real pain with it being distributed randomly. It's almost as if they don't want people to update to the latest version. Hello, kinda new to this part of techno world coz I just bought some related d...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

Re-rip them all with the latest version of Makemkv. Having the Dolby Vision layer as a second separate video track in an MKV file has never been part of the MKV standard. Hi, I have lot of MKVs that I made in the past with MKVToolnix keeping Dolby Vision layer as a second track (in the hope it could...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

All you need for Atmos is the "TrueHD" and the "DD" underneath it. Dolby Vision is kept by default, nothing you need to select or de-select. Also, if all you want is Dolby Atmos, instead of both Atmos and DTS, deselect the "DTS" tracks for a smaller file. thanks, pardon...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

What's a recommended app for side loading APK's onto the Nvidia Shield TV, so I can run exoplayer under Kodi and watch my DV MKVs?

Re: Best media player for Nvidia Shield TV (2019)

MrMC is a good Kodi variant.

Koying, of the SPMC Kodia variant fame, handles the android/Nvidia Shield TV versions.

Re: Catalina and Makemkv

Well, I did a upgraded a spare HD I have as a test. Makemkv was able to decrypt the TOC of a UHD disk and list out all the tracts to extract. so.. it seems to work. I didn't go as far as ripping anything to storage though.
