Re: MakeMKV 1.15.4

I have an unsubstantiated theory that TVs that are limited to DV @30Hz (such as my 2014 LG) may have something to do with it. Have you tried manually setting the Shield video mode to be at 30hz? I know this will make the interface sluggish, but if this causes the crashes to occur less, then maybe y...

Re: MakeMKV 1.15.4

The whole DV decoder crashing issue is really a curious one. Back when we were forced to do TS remuxes for DV, Plex never had these crashing problems. Lossless audio also worked without issue. The only time any videos crashed was when you turned on PGS subtitles. I reriped my entire DV collection, ...

Re: MakeMKV 1.15.4

For playback on the Shield, you need the latest versions of Plex Media Server and Plex Client. Depending on your config and playback chain, the results are spotty. Nvidia still need to issue a fix for their Dolby Vision decoder. The whole DV decoder crashing issue is really a curious one. Back when...

Re: MakeMKV 1.15.4

So I have the 2019 Nvidia Shield Pro ..to extract Dolbyvision from DV discs all I need is this 1.15.4 version of MakeMKV and no other program is required? Is there a definitive guide for correctly backing up a Dolbyvision UHD disc that someone can point me to? Thanks a lot! No need for a guide. Jus...

Re: MakeMKV 1.15.4

Guys, If I use MakeMKV 1.15.4 to backup my entire 4K disc (containing Atmos and Dolby Vision) and not create an MKV file (I want the whole disc), will the Shield Pro be able to play DV and Atmos (from a backed up 4K disc)? Thanks Not the Shield. I believe the newest Zidoo players can but please dou...

Re: "Fake playlist" protection - help needed

It would be good though if MakeMKV could expand its database to include the correct playlist for a given disc once it has been identified by users.

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

Follow-up to my previous post, I just tried the Plex app on the AppleTV for two versions of Spiderman Homecoming, one with TrueHD audio and one with the HD audio reencoded to FLAC. To my surprise, the version with the FLAC audio played with DV according to my AVR and my TV, the other version came u...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

You need a Shield to get DV playback from an MKV. Hi - I took this advice, and bought an Nvidia Shield, enabled DV on it, and played my DV extracted MKV using the shield Plex app, and am still only getting HDR playback - any ideas? The metadata for the MKV file has DV listed as “true.” Ok, the issu...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

I'm having the same issue as bostoneddie. Dolby Vision only plays on a spiderman far from home rip if I use AC3. Trying to use atmos gives me a direct playback error (which then transcodes the audio and reverts to regular hdr). This is confirmed a problem with plex/shield correct? Yes, this is my e...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

It honestly doesn't matter if the Nvidia DV decoder crashes during transcoding. If any part of the playback stream (audio, video, or even pgs subtitles) has to be transcoded, then all parts of the stream will be transcoded. Since your 4k video ends up having to be transcoded because of the audio st...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

Hmm, interesting. DV does indeed work on Disney+ via the Shield. I usually only rip the main audio track to MKV but I’ll experiment with ripping others. So it does look like this is an audio playback chain issue. If Plex is passing AC3 directly it appears to successfully trigger DV. If transcoding ...

Re: MakeMKV 1.15.4

Thanks for the comment, its super helpful. Does makemkv rip dual layer disks to single layer DV MKVs, or does it remain a dual layer DV MKV? Actually, it wasn't super helpful at all. MakeMKV produces a dual layer , single track MKV with DV. Plex on the Nvidia Shield can play these back. (Note that ...
