Is it possible to document the discatt format?
It is not only documented, but the libdriveio library that creates and parses it is open-source (LGPL license). All of this is part of MakeMKV open-source package for Linux (library obviously can be built anywhere).

Re: Disable LibreDrive

Here are the instruction how to disable LibreDrive runtime for any particular drive. First, you have to figure out the drive id - open the log file and look for the string that lloks similar to "SDF v05c: ASUS_BC-12B1ST___b_3.00_211512151340_SIKxxxxxx". The single string containing drive name, versi...

Anyway, nothing major. Just a thought.
This is not the question you've asked, but the answer may fit - enable "ask for single drive mode" in preferences.

Re: Can't find any usable optical drives

The 1.14.4 has an option to install an optical drive access service - with this service MakeMKV does not need to be run as administrator, and should be immune to Controlled Folder sandbox.

Re: 4k solo mystery

I hesitate to post this here but the ATMOS in MKV problem has plagued a lot of us for a while. Incredibles 2 was notorious for issue, but, it's really a problem with ATMOS in MKV in general. What I hesitate posting is that another product has solved this problem once and for all. But this is the Ma...

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 ...
