Endeavour Series 3, Discs 1 & 2
Grantchester Series 2, Discs 1 & 2
MakeMKV v1.10.2 seems unable to open the latest PBS Masterpiece Mystery DVDs automatically. It adds only a few of the titles on the DVD, usually just ancillary or bonus titles, but no actual episodes.
If I open the discs manually, using a comma-delimited string of the title numbers I want (after identifying them using VLC), then it adds the titles and rips them just fine.
Skimming the Forums, I see two recent posts from others that sound like the exact same issue:
In both of these other cases, each with recent PBS releases, MakeMKV added some—but not all—of the episodes. With the 4 discs where I had this problem, it added no episodes; only smaller ancillary titles. I suspect these are all variations on the same underlying problem, perhaps due to a change in the copy protection PBS is using with its latest releases.
I've sent firstname.lastname@example.org
more details on this problem, including the logs and .IFOs from Endeavor Series 3 Discs 1 & 2. I'm attaching the logs from these two discs to this post as well, in case they might help someone else. I had the same problem last week with Grantchester Series 2 Discs 1 & 2, but failed to capture any trouble-shooting data.
For reference, I'm running MakeMKV v1.10.2 on an iMac17,1 running OS X El Capitan v10.11.6.
