Home Theater Demo Disc - Version 2.0 - Page 49

Incidentally, ImgBurn will automagically recognize that you're trying to burn something with BR structure and offer to set the various .iso options to match this.

I got the folder burned with ImgBurn and can mount it with Virtual CloneDrive. Now what program can/should I use to view it? I tried VLC and it wouldn't open it, nor would XBMC. Any free programs that will read the ISO as a BD with the menus intact?

To play the blu-ray once you mount it, you can use a variety of blu-ray player software. I like these:
- Arcsoft Totalmedia Theatre
- Powerdvd

I used to use Powerdvd, but after my last HTPC format and rebuild I tried Arcsoft and I like its appearance and function a little better. Both are good options though.

I'm trying to use a Corsair Flash Voyager 128GB USB 3.0 thumb drive to play this material through my Oppo 93. However, when I access the BDMV directory, it shows up as an empty directory on the Oppo interface. I have the Reference Blu-Ray Demo Disc on the same drive and it works fine. The directory structure looks the same for both disks and both root directories contain index.bdmv and MovieObject.bdmv in the root directories. HOWEVER, there is a difference as the Reference Blu-Ray Demo Disc is located in a "BD50" directory with two subdirectories (BDMV and Certificate) while the HTDD starts with the BDMV (without a higher level folder or parallel Certificate folder). Does that make a difference?

I'd create a separate directory and move the BDMV into it and find out where the Certificate directory vanished too. It is a must.

He can create his own ,as it's an emtpy dir containing an empty sub dir named "BACKUP".

For the BD50, the certificate directory has a file called id.bdmv in both the Certificate and the Backup subdirectory. Is that file not needed then?
post #1447 of 1675
No, it shouldn't be necessary. Worst case, it still doesn't play and you need it.

Thanks all. That worked! I got it running last night ... smile.gif

Just started downloading. I have a 50GB cap/month, so it will take me quite a while to get this D/L and U/L. Maybe my spring?rolleyes.gif If only I could get Google Fiber....1Gbps

Does anyone have the working links?

I tried the torrent links on the first page, fist couple posts, but they seem to be massive text files or something strange??

Thanks!

That doesn't work either.

The files are only like 277 kb and the like.
There is something wrong there.


Does anyone have the link to the real files?

What's wrong with that size for a Torrent file? Perfectly normal. I just downloaded that file and removed the .txt extension and left the .torrent extension. It opened perfectly in uTorrent. Are you on Windows 7? If you go into Folder Options in Control Panel, click on View, is 'Hide extensions for known file types' unchecked? If that's checked sometimes you can't really see what the extension is just by looking at the file. What torrent client are you using?
post #1454 of 1675
By the way, looks like there's 7 seeders and 9 peers right now for the whole disc. Says it would take me 1 day and 19 hours to download.

OK, never mind.
You are correct. redface.gif I never had any dealings with torrents prior. I thought the links were to the actual downloads. I did not realize (stupidly) that those were only the pointers for the client to obtain the actual files.
I now see how that process works. Sorry for the ignorance. I am now a torrent user.biggrin.gif
I am in the queue!

Right on, if you're doing uTorrent run the test to make sure your port forwarding is set up. It will help your download speeds.

Thanks for the tip!smile.gif
post #1458 of 1675
I don't believe it. I seeded over 1 TB back in the day, and today I accidentally deleted this disc's BluRay folder from my drive. frown.gif
Now to start again, and to pray that the seeders remain.
post #1459 of 1675
Is there any reason you can't put this on a jump drive or for that matter leave it on my computer and access it through the wired home network?
post #1460 of 1675
JimP: no reason at all. That's a very good idea if your HT(s) are HTPC based.
post #1461 of 1675
I must be doing something wrong.

If there is a post detailing how to do this from A to Z, can you point me to that post?

Many thanks.
post #1462 of 1675
JimP: Which software are you using to play the files? PowerDVD doesn't support this, but TMT does.
post #1463 of 1675
Anyone out there that can seed these torrents?

TIA.

I remain seeding these from .au .... been doing the same for months now.

How about some others doing the same, even if you limit your upload speed... the more that seed, the less demand on each.
post #1465 of 1675
seeding now
post #1466 of 1675
any chance this can go up on piratebay?
post #1467 of 1675
Can I just order this disc and pay for it like I did the first one (I just found this thread).

If so, how do I order it?
post #1468 of 1675
I've got a new PC setup, trying to start seeding but it is going to take a while to verify. I'll try to keep it up off and on over the next few days.
post #1469 of 1675
Interesting.

I stopped the download a couple of days ago because it was taking too long.

Checked this morning and it looks like it did it on it's own once I turned on the computer yesterday and that somehow, I seeded.

Don't have to understand that. smile.gif

I now have 85 RAR files at 41.4 gb. Does that sound right? Thought it was suppose to be larger.

I would think that I'd have to open all these RAR files with something. What is everyone else using on a Windows 7 machine ?
post #1470 of 1675
7zip is an all purpose archive program handler that will work just fine.
