I don't know what the difference might be, but extracting the forced subs to their own track is insufficient for a BD-ISO. There is also some BDMV code required to turn on that track. ClownBD calls...

What is a "lightened circle shadow"? The only circle I can see on your image is the red line drawn over it.

I know that it's broken on 131224_0132_b8 or newer.

Some day I might try to fix it, but no promises :o

I'm not sure about 3D support in Clown. It doesn't recompress, though you might be able to use only pieces of it to get what you need.

If you run the Clown gui in batch mode, it generates a *.bat...

You're right that Avengers (US 2D BD, at least) has a separate track for the forced subs. While I don't know anything about BDREBUILDER, I know ClownBD can handle this with a little TLC.

What is your output format and what does your player support (in terms of forced subs)?

You can use tools to modify MKV files to set the forced flag, but not many players honor that.

Wow, I just checked the hours on my 4810 that I've had installed for just over one year. 129 hours total. I would guess I'm on the low end of typical usage :)

It's a known problem. One of these days I'll get around to it, but I'm afraid for now I'm still on an old firmware with no need to update.

Snowpiercer

The US BD of Snowpiercer has forced subs beginning at 0:31:49. They're on a separate track and not flagged as forced, so ClownBD won't pick them up automatically.

The PJ doesn't know or care what the aspect ratio is. It only zooms when you tell it to. In this case it will spill off the top and bottom.

One way to resolve this is to use a video processor like...

Wow, that sucks.

That makes even less sense than excluding HD audio.

Maybe they did that so it would fit on a single-layer BD saving them a few pennies per disc?

Are you sure that bitrate does not include the audio too? 10 Mbps difference could be caused by that alone.

Please explain...what is a "banana plug snake"? Something to help pull the speaker wires through the wall? I guess I'm not seeing why the banana plugs would make any difference there.
