Thanks for clarifying, I appreciate it.olevelo wrote: ↑Sun May 31, 2020 1:29 amI don't think the LG Plex app can play DV ts files. Only mp4. In fact I haven't seen any Plex app other than on the Shield reported to play the ts files (I could very well have missed it though).chrisandy wrote: ↑Fri May 29, 2020 4:29 pmHi everyone,
I've spent a considerable amount of time going through this and other posts in this forum but am still running into some issues, so hoping someone can help me out.
I have a copy of a film that has the BDMV, CERTIFICATE and MAKEMKV folder.
The playlist with the Dolby Vision file is hidden, but I was able to locate it.
I have tried the following:
1. Using MakeMKV to create a .mkv file from the .index file within the BDMV folder
2. Using MakeMKV to create a .mkv file from the .mlps 'hidden' playlist file
3. Creating a .ts from both of the above, in addition to creating a .ts purely from the mlps.
In all of these instances, I am left with a HDR10 only file with no indication of Dolby Vision within Mediainfo.

I followed someone's suggestion on here and downloaded a more specific version of TSmux (4.06), and used that on the originally created .mkv file. This did show Dolby Vision in Mediainfo:

1) Only played in HDR10 via ATV 4K Plex
2) Would not open the file when connecting to the LG directly via USB
3) Would not open the file when trying to play via LG Plex app
I then used the specific version of TSmux to create a .ts of the specific playlist .mpls file, with the following results in Mediainfo:

However, this .ts file is also not recognized via USB and it only plays in HDR10 on my OLED via the Plex app.
I've spent a lot of time on this so any help would be very appreciated
I have an LG C8, and a Shield with the Plex Server and a few DV ts files that I have played fine through the Shield's Plex app (with DV). I just tried watching through the LG Plex app and every one that I tried only triggered HDR10. These are all 04.06. So interesting that those wouldn't even play on your LG. I had previously tried profile 8 (I think...whatever version of tsmuxer I was using) and with those I would get audio but no video, as I recall.
Bottom line, currently for mkv/ts you need a Shield.
And just to clarify - it is a limitation of .mp4 that it can only carry AAC with DV, correct? So I basically have to choose between HDR10 + Atmos (or whatever Dolby variant) or DV + AAC?
