I have had it up for about 14 hours. Not so sure about the tracker status. It looks a bit weird. Have you tried to pull anything down in that time?

There is about 1MB/s download traffic now. So, I guess everything is OK.

It's three and a half years old at this point (Wow! ).
You may have better luck with one of the newer ones (see link in sig).

I have the 6 files up if you would like to try. I am getting "Connection Error (Unresolved host 'tracker.publicbt.com')" in tracker status. So, not sure if I am really offering up or not.

Thanks, I'm trying to download the large 40gb file though. But it seems to have picked up considerably and gone from 5 or 6 days to complete to 1 now.

Hopefully there aren't any issues with the file given all the starts and stops over the last few days!

Okay, probably should have done this from the start. Tried downloading the separate files vs the single large one. Looks like I will have all of them done shortly, except for the Animation one as there doesn't appear to be any seeds. Music as well is a hit and miss (stalled at 34%).

Can someone put those ones up for a bit?

4 are seeded and downloading for me.
Music and Animation are not seeded as of yet.

I will reseed.

Hmmmm ... seems we also now need this file for the process to complete? Unless there is another way to get all 6 files into a similarly formatted bluray?

I found it and I'm pretty sure I'm seeding - for some reason, my (old) version of uT isn't displaying anything, but I'm showing upload speed, so I'm not going to waste time getting the new version. I was going to put the file in my Dropbox, but that was going to take two hours.
You don't need it unless you want to take the individual files from the BD9 discs and burn a BD50.

Yeah, plan is to put all of the 6 sections onto 1 disk, so thanks for seeding. Looks like it will be done in a few hours ..

Thanks...a bit confusing as to what needs to be in what folder but will review the .bat file.

Seems the Bass segment I downloaded has errors with several scenes after unpacking it with 7Zip, so will have to try and download it again. Hopefully the others are okay!

You don't need the .bat file. Just do it manually as instructed in post 9.
If you have any questions, pm me.

Will PM you when I get a chance, clearly I'm missing something in the instructions as it relates to the batch file.

Plus I am stilling getting an error in the Bass disc download after I extract it. Something about part 31. The file has an odd extension on it "Reference 2 Bass FINAL.part31.rar.!ut" and is half the size of the other files. Maybe I just need to delete the odd ".!ut" to get that file to work. But the batch bat file has me stumped as to what needs to be in which directory, particularly as after unzipping the rar files it creates new directories that don't seem to be mentioned in the batch file instructions. I.e., 6 new directories with the actual streams in them that all have "FINAL.part01" in the directory name. E.g., "Reference 2 Bass FINAL.part01" vs just "Reference 2 Bass".

You'll need to address the author of the batch file if you want to use it; I had nothing to do with that.
I think deleting the unnecessary extension will do the trick. It's been a while, so I really don't remember.
Hang in there. It's doable.

I may have figured it out. I deleted all the folders that extracting the Batch file created (which were the Reference 2 Animation, Reference 2 Bass, etc.). Then copied all the folders that were extracted when I extracted the .rar files into the same directory that the Blendbd.bat file was located as well as the Reference 2 Blu-Ray Demo Disc which is a folder created when you extract the BD9s2BD50Ref2.zip.torrent.zip 20k .zip file.

I then renamed the folders that were created by the .rar extraction which I had moved into the directory back to their main names. E.g., renamed "Reference 2 Bass FINAL.part01" to "Reference 2 Bass", along with the other 5.

Then ran the Blendbd.bat in the command prompt (CMD) which went through and copied and renamed the relevant files from the 6 segmented directories into the Reference 2 Blu-Ray Demo Disc directory.

Now the only odd thing, and I'm not sure if this is supposed to be that way, is that there are several mt2s files that have nothing in them. Which is also what I see after I extracted the .rar's so not sure if that is supposed to be that way. E.g., 00001, 00003, 00012, etc as seen below?

That's a normal side effect of the mastering process. Don't get rid of them, but they won't play.

I am following the instructions to create a USB stick that will play in a ps3. I have a couple questions.

Will this work on PS4?

After running multiAVCHD and click PS3 option, which folder(s) do I re-name and which folder do I drag and drop onto a blank fat32 formatted usb stick drive?

If I am reading the instructions correctly, I re-name the BDRA folder that was created in C:\multiAVCHD to "AVCHD" then drag this newly renamed "AVCHD" folder to the USB stick.

Do I rename any folders within this newly renamed AVCHD folder? There is another BDRA folder within.

Thank you.

So far I can play video clips when I browse to the stream folder in either ps4 or with the usb stick directly into my LG OLED (passing audio to Denon AVR via toslink). The ps4 plays most videos but no audio, and the OLED TV will play audio for most but not all clips.

Thanks for the help!

You need to rename ande "use" the inner BDRA folder. The newly renamed AVCHD folder needs to be the first folder in you USB drive. Also I would recommend for the folder to be the ONLY folder on your USB drive.

I have not tested a USB on a PS4, but it should work the same as the PS3.

Thanks. So if I do this correctly, should I have a DVD menu via ps3 and usb thumb drive? Or will I have to browse to the individual movie clips in the STREAM folder?
