Home Theater Demo Disc - Version 2.0 - Page 51

post #1501 of 1675
Ok ,so I have downloaded the complete file as well as "imageburn" but I'm a little confused at this point about what to do next.
I have access to a blu-ray burner and my media is a Maxell BD-R dl 50 GB disc.
However the player in my home theater is a Panasonic DMP-BD-60 and I'm not sure if I need to apply the patch to get this disc to play.
I checked the compatibility list and it says that it should play both HDMV and AVCHD with this note in the known issues:

"Panasonic players using the AVCHD version may find that the HDTV Calibration video lacks chapter skips and a popup menu. The top menu button on the remote should still return to the main menu, and fast forward or rewind should be able to move through the HDTV Calibration video. At the current time we are not aware of an alternate AVCHD authoring method to solve this reported issue on Panasonic players. The HDMV version burned to BD-RE or BD-R with a Blu-ray burner should include the chapter skips and a popup menu on the same Panasonic players"

So , do I need the "patch" and if so where do I get it and how do I apply it?? confused.gif

I am not sure, but if you burn the disc as Bluray and noct DVD and AVCHD yaou don't need to aply a patch.

I also downloaded the 2.0 and burned yesterday on a 50 Dual Layer Bluray Disc. With speed 2x and put the both folders CERTIFICATE and BDMV as source on imgburn.

So i think AVCHD is only if you burn on a DVD not original Bluray.

I forgot to say that my Player is the Panasonic BD310

The patch is only if you are going to burn the individual segment into a DVD (BD9). There is nothing special or different to do when burning to Bluray media.

A small detail... patch no patch... we are in the wrong thread.eek.gif
post #1505 of 1675

post #1506 of 1675

For those running these files directly from a laptop or PC, what software (and codecs) are you using?

I'd like to run these to my receiver via HDMI output, but windows media doesn't seem to have the correct codecs for audio. Video appears fine.
post #1508 of 1675
Pretty sure you need a package like ArcSoft TotalMedia. Windows doesn't have built-in codecs for BluRay.

*smacks head* thanks, I must have skimmed right over them.
post #1512 of 1675
I tried the link on post #8 and it opens GoforFiles exe but when the program searches, I am not sure which file I need to download. I also tried searching Home Theater Demo Disc but a lot of results come up. I'm not sure which file to download. Can someone let me know the exact search term and file name to download?

Thanks,

^ ^ ^

Ok, I went over to this thread and found the file to download via uTorrent. http://www.avsforum.com/t/1391873/reference-blu-ray-demo-disc-bd9-dvd-dl-media-bd50/0_100

It's downloading the 36GB file, and might take all day, but it should be fine to have a reference bluray disc to play with. I also removed the GoforFiles program that installed in my previous post. Sorry, I'm all new to this whole torrent thing. Never done it before.

Thanks,

I ended up googling and found a "media player codec pack 4.2" on Cnet.

It seems to work quite well. The video content looks a bit different when output from the laptop (e.g. it has much more SOE than a physical disc). My receiver seems to interpret the audio content correctly (e.g., it indicates its receiving DTS-HD etc.). For now, its a reasonable alternative.

It downloaded and extracted just fine via Astraweb. I grabbed the 471 day old version uploaded by Yuuza.

Here it is, just remove the .txt at the end of the name.

You would need to find someone willing to burn it (for free) and provide them with the media since it can be pricey, but that would be it. Any payment for the "service" of burning would be considered making a profit off of material that they did not own the rights to make a profit from.
post #1527 of 1675
hi Nick. I think you may find that the copyright owners have tightened up on the copying process. Most new movies come with the FBI warning stipulating that it's an offence to copy the movie regardless of whether a profit is made. Whilst I agree that burning this disk myself has resulted in me purchasing a number of the titles, it's still a very slippery slope in terms of legalities.
post #1528 of 1675
..Well if anyone is willing to burn me one for my Bluray ,just PM me and we will work something out !
post #1529 of 1675
Got it to burn first time through, no coasters! Would be helpful if this info could be added to the instructions on the first page for IMGBurn. had to search many pages to find it:

MODE1/2048
UDF only
UDF Revision 2.5

Label: AVCHD

Thanks for all the hard work putting this through. I am burning the other "Reference" disk now.
post #1530 of 1675
^^^ When you place the files into IMGBURN, it automatically sets it to UDF 2.50 and brings up a dialog box confirming that it wants to do that.

The AVCHD label is incorrect, as the disc is not an AVCHD formatted disc, it is a 100% authored Blu-ray format disc. The label is more like:

HomeTheaterDemo_Ver-2
