Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

It's my first go today at doing this - I've made the MP4 but it isn't recognised by my LG E6 OLED when trying to play with a USB drive into the USB3 port. It looks like it tries to load (disk access light is flashing) but I just get the LG loading symbol and after a few minutes the error 'file cann...

Re: 4K OLED TV for Dolby Vision

I really like both of my Samsung curved TV's. It's just unfortunate that Samsung will probably never support DV. They'd be perfect otherwise. I've noticed some inexpensive 50 to 65 inch TV's at Kogan that support DV (not sure what version of DV though). I may consider one of these in the future as a...

Re: Pioneer BDR-S12UHT

If somebody else will get this drive, please contact me, I need to dump some binary data from this drive to add its support to a Pioneer drive flasher I'm working on. Thanks in advance! Blackened2687, I sent my dump to mike a few months ago. I didn't realize until now that you were after a dump for...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Did anyone try this method of shrinking the BL and running in through yusetool? If you want a different DV profile, it should work. Give it a go! Thats just it, i cant get it working. Im running yusetool after shrinking the BL, which goes to 100% but the window remains open and i never get the "fin...

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

I just flashed my drive to NS55 1.04-MK and I got no warning at all. It simply worked fine. But when I put NS60 1.02-MK on the drive, I got the error I talked about with no way to continue. So I would say it works for SOME firmware (probably those that make a drive truly friendly) but not others. T...

It doesn't. It links to their downgrade ripo...er software. Just an ok button. No yes/no. No don't show checkbox. I just downloaded and installed the latest version (11.0.9.6) and got the same popup message. Here you go. DVDFab latest version message.jpg After ticking and clicking "No", I put a dis...

Bugger. I wonder if you can roll back to DVDFab11_x64(11.0.8.7), do the things I did, then update to newer version again?

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Cool, I'm glad they worked for you. Here are the steps to create them. For this example, I used Birds of Prey which is MEL. Just change the inputs/outputs to your source. 1. Extract the BL and EL to separate hevc files and any audio tracks you want. I prefer to use eac3to for this task. You can use...

Re: command line utils for flashing my new Archgon UHD?

Thanks all for the help and material. I think I'm good to go now except for two last questions 1. Regarding which Libre Firmware to use - I've narrowed them down to two. From these two I'm unable to tell which one (if either) is ok to use. Potential LibreDrive Firmware: HL-DT-ST-BD-RE_BU40N-U101-MM...

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

Just got around to testing. Indeed, there is no way to override the firmware check. That's annoying. It'll make life harder for some people. I just re-installed the trial (DVDFab11_x64(11.0.8.7)) that I had downloaded in May. The popup message I am talking about is below. dFab_incompatible_firmware...

I guess I can experiment with it tomorrow as I've got a lifetime license. I don't ever really use it but I bought it as insurance just in case. I can try flashing different firmware and see what happens. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk Cool!! The results might help some folk that like to use b...

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

Have you tried using WH16NS60 1.02-MK and just ignoring the DVDFab incompatible firmware issue? I tested this a while back on the trial version of DVDFab with BH16NS55 1.04-MK. When DVDFab gives the incompatible firmware error, I just clicked "do not show this again" and then used DVDFab as normal....

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

Yes I'm using ASUS_ODD_FW_Changer_(Modified).exe to flash my drive. Each time without anything else starting. I reflash now WH16NS60 1.02MK and that's working well on windows and with MakeMKV. But this firmware is sadly not compatible with DVDFab... None of the DE versions that I tried from the sta...

Is it possible to re encode the BL.hevc and use that along with the EL.hevc to make a smaller sized Dolby Vision capable file?
Yes, check my posts in this very thread. (page #170)
