Is there an additional step I missed? I have not yet inserted a UHD disk as I am planning to get my first ones after I get this to work!
You need to make sure that MakeMKV can download updates, or you have to download the latest SDF.bin manually.

Re: DVDFab now supports Japanese UHD BDAV discs

This is Japanese-only thing for now. One can record UHD TV broadcast to blu-ray media (with appropriate hardware recorder). The resulting disc is UHD BDAV with AACS 2 protection.

Re: Test for those who are brave, BU40N-N 1.02

What's the advantage of 1.03 over 1.02? Likely - none. The 1.03 MK that we have now thanks to asmcom offers a somewhat cleaner downgrade path. So if you got a drive with 1.03 it might be beneficial to stay on 1.03MK, as it can be flashed without updating the bootloader. But I see zero reasons to sw...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I doubt reauthoring a dual layer uhd-bd to mux the bl+el+rpu into a single stream video file is as easy as you think. It has to be, it is designed that way. After all, it is just a metadata re-packaging. here's a bunch of single layer DV test samples Thanks! these are not dual layer uhd-bd profile ...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

These files are still dual layer (profile 7 usually) which is why only certain models support playback of them. I understand that. But I wonder if the process to combine dual-layer to single-layer is relatively simple and can be reverse-engineered. The public DV docs state that MEL extension layer ...

If anyone doesn't want to bother with closed captions, you could just add this to .MakeMKV/settings.conf:

app_ccextractor = "/usr/bin/yes"
ccextractor is only invoked if CC streams are selected. Just don't select them, and there will be no hassle.

Re: GLIBC_2.28 not found on Ubuntu

Are you compiling from source? MakeMKV can work with ancient glibc and requires glibc 2.2 (2.2 for 386 and 2.2.5 for x64).

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Guys, I'm trying to understand this thread, please help me out. If anyone can answer these: Is it safe to assume that all DV-enabled UHD blu-ray discs use DV 7 profile MEL streams (double layer, EL with MEL). Are really all DV streams on UHD blu-rays MEL streams? Am I right that there is an algorith...

Product: BD-RE WH12LS39 This drive won't read UHD, but this drive can be made LibreDrive-compatible. This has some benefits for regular blu-ray as well. Pl...

Re: Confirming Compatibility

Firmware date: 2013-11-06 12:34:56 Since I don't see anything mentioning LibreDrive does that mean mine doesn't support it? Or am I missing something? I even upgraded from FW ver 1.00 to 1.02 this evening to see if that would help. That means that MakeMKV knows nothing about this drive - which is s...
