For those that have not seen or do not know of this site... Demo-World. It specializes in demo material and demo discs of all kinds.
Most of the time Demo discs are not for sale but for promotional events.

The site has a segment where it reviews all different types of demo discs... I recommend for everyone to go take a look and go over, not only these discs but through others.

You made your own comparisons and conclusions.

We could go round and round forever. It isn't worth it. I stand by my initial statement that started this whole discussion.

There probably isn't one. Steve's intent was to make #2 an updated/improved version of #1; not many of the files are different.

If you can find it, great, but don't be too disappointed if you can't.

Would anyone be willing to create a Blu Ray Demo disc for me. I do not have access to a Blu Ray burner and can't see spending the money for one for one disc. I would be willing to reimburse for the media used as I know you can't pay for the persons time due to legal issues. You can PM me if so.

Thanks ahead of time.

Blu-ray Recoradble Discs and Region Coding

I was looking in the Blu-ray Disc Demystified book (page 4-18) and discovered that the license prohibits region-checking code on recordable discs. Only allowed on pre-recorded (BE-ROM) discs.

The previously heated discussion about this was moot, as it isn't allowed.

Which is why there are BD9s. superleo's second disc is available in DVD-DL segments:

Go grab a copy of the book and read what it says about AACS and recordable discs on pages 4-10 thru 4-12. The region coding issue was easy. This will not only make your head hurt, but spin around, just like in the movie, biggrin.gif

I did two of the BD9's but they keep wanting to lock up on my PS3 (only blu ray player I have). I might try to do another though.

The best thing you can do is set your cable box to output a fixed resolution (e.g. 1080i or 720p). When the resolution stays the same you shouldn't get an HDMI handshake when you change channels.

No, as been mentioned several times in this thread and probably each of the others:

These discs are NOT for sale.

Sorry.

I suggest we change the topic to - Home Theater Demo Disc Version 2 (NOT FOR SALE).
That could probably cut off 20% of the questions smile.gif

I use TMT5 (TotalMedia Theatre).

You need a program that can play BDs. I've seen ways to add the feature to Media Player, but I haven't done it, personally.

I'm looking for for something android based to use on my Samsung homesync. It really is the perfect device and after I dug my hard copy scuba Steve disk out of an old blu ray burner i immediately transferred it to my homesync only for nothing to be labeled. I personally don't even keep a blu ray player in my theater anyone. If I need one I can grab one out of the bedroom but I mainly use that one for streaming tv and movies from my homesync
