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

Been looking at the LG WH16NS60. I've read it can come with firmware up to 1.04. If you get a drive that has that firmware, can you downgrade the firmware? If so, which firmware is preferred at this point in time for this drive? Thank ...

your 1080p monitors are also likely not HDR and HDR movies on a SDR display looks worse than regular Bluray
Obviously, but that’s not the point. My workstation is just a place for ripping, staging, and transcoding for my home theater and other platforms.

I just flashed the Asus BW-16D1HT to 3.10MK, to 3.02 and now cross flashed to fix the sleep bug to WH16NS60 1.00. Does this look accurate? I get my 4K UHD disc in tonight, I want to make sure I Will be able to rip it when it arrives. Thanks
Sounds good.

Well, sounds like a *great* excuse to get a 2080 RTX! :)

Re: WH16NS40 with WH16NS60 FW v1.02mk

Those cards don't support h.265/hvec decoding that's your problem also I wouldn't consider them fully 4k capable they support 4k at 30 fps max and no HDR. VLC plays the HEVC-encoded 68 GB MKV smoothly and clearly for about 10 seconds, before completely freezing. No stuttering prior. I believe that ...

Re: WH16NS40 with WH16NS60 FW v1.02mk

If you PC does not meet the very specific UHD requirements, you will not be able to play UHD discs directly. They need to be decrypted first. well you can in vlc but you need to uncheck the menus setting and it works with other unofficial players direct from disc too but the pc must support h.265 d...

Re: WH16NS40 with WH16NS60 FW v1.02mk

Quick follow-up: Just received my WH16NS40 1.04 unit and loaded WH16NS60 1.02MK firmware. Worked fine. Backed up UHD DVD via MakeMKV just fine. However, neither VLC nor 5KPlayer will play actual disc. Also, playing MKV *freezes* my entire system (sometimes ...

Re: WH16NS40 with WH16NS60 FW v1.02mk

- Dual 680GTX (have tried in SLI mode and not. These cards are fully 4K capable, but worth noting that I'm only driving two HD/1920x1080 monitors) Those cards don't support h.265/hvec decoding that's your problem also I wouldn't consider them fully 4k capable they support 4k at 30 fps max and no HDR.

Re: WH16NS40 with WH16NS60 FW v1.02mk

I appreciate the continued interest with helping me. In general, I would expect spec issues to result in video stuttering, playback refusing to start, or some other performance-type issues. Ripping control away from the Windows 10 kernel and freezing even the mouse is completely different and indica...
