Official LG BD690/670/650/6xx Series Thread - Page 72

post #2131 of 2320
Ok well thanks for the additional info. Wonder why they went backwards in their support for these types of files... I guess the world will never know smile.gif - I have considered other BD players, but I haven't found any others that support SMB/CIFS for streaming files from Windows shares. I don't want to use DLNA.

Hello all.
first of all sorry for my english, i hope this is the right place to post my issue.
I have three films (with both BDMV and CERTIFICATE folders in them) full 1:1 that i 've written on a 50gb BR disc.
The first plays good, but the second has a problem. The BD650 checks the disc and tells me "bluray disc", after that the play triangle icon appears for 2 sec about, but after that, not like normally happens with the right playback, the screen remains black and the timer blocked on 0:00:00.
All the 3 films are provided by the same person, that's why i would suppose that if the first is good all the others should be too.
I have written the disc in UDF with both nero and img burn but nothing changes.
If someone has any idea or suggestion to give me to bypass the problem it would be very appreciated.
I could also post the report of the film folder made with bdinfo (the only i know to make report of folders of 1:1 br films) if you ask me.
Thanks in advance

heek br

what is the resolution of the video file?
post #2134 of 2320
Codec AVC
res. 1920 x 1080
profile High@L4,1
post #2135 of 2320
have you tried a different blu ray player? maybe update the firmware?
post #2136 of 2320
another blu ray player no for the fact i don't have one and anyway the first is readable so i would think i can read also the second..
as far as the firmware i tried to install the american ones, that are more recent ( 2012. the italian one that actually i have are old: 2011, and are the last provided) but the update procedure doesn't start, surely because my reader is italian =(
post #2137 of 2320
im stumped, if you a friend that you can test the disc on, it might be player related or a bad burn.
post #2138 of 2320
you're right but i've tried up to 4 discs, 3 mediarange (and with mediarange the first episode ran good) and 1 verbatim.
same problem. i ve written the working disc with nero, the disc not working with nero and img burn.
me too think can be a bluray reader problem. i m waitng my friend tells me on his reader.
anyway it can be possible the problem relates to some codec or anything else that can be changed in the related folders with a good software?
thank you again. i'll let u know..
post #2139 of 2320
I use txmuxer to convert MKV files to AVCHD format and burn with imgburn. There is a known bug with some x264 encoded video where it will not play after burning. Do you what codec is used in the file you converted?
post #2140 of 2320
The codec is MPEG-4 AVC video but i didn't convert any file..i m used to convert only mkv files with problem.
This is not a mkv file, it's a full 1:1 film in 2 FOLDERS. i 'd like to modify something in the BDMV or and CERTIFICATE folders in the hope i can finally read the FULL 1:1 Bluray Disc

ive had issues with MPG4 files in the past, check the bitrate and FPS
post #2142 of 2320
TS bitrate : 41 Mbps
FPS: 23,976
post #2143 of 2320
convert to mkv and use tsmuxer to create a avchd, burn re-burn with imgburn, check results.
post #2144 of 2320
Hi folks. I was hoping I could get some tips on ripping my BD and DVDs to H.264 MKV files for playback to from my NAS on by BD690. So far I've ripped a few disks successfully and I feel like I'm pretty much getting the hang of it but I think I must be missing a few tweaks. For example, I can't get chapters to work on DLNA playback but if I take the same MKV file and then author/burn it back to a BD25 w/AVCHDCoder and ImgBurn the chapters on the resulting disk work fine. So are chapters on DLNA playback just not something that the player supports for H264 MKV? For a while I was ripping my DVDs to TS files and for those not only would the chapter breaks not work but neither would FF or Rewind, I could only play, stop or pause. Also if anyone here uses Handbrake or Vidcoder for encoding I'd be interested to know what presets you've found work to get the best quality playback from H264 (ie. constant quality settings, H264 level, etc). Thanks!

post #2146 of 2320
its possible, but what is the source of the original file? Burning as an avchd gave me almost blu ray quality minus the hd audio
post #2147 of 2320
So I encountered my first Cinavia protected blu ray last night (Safety Not Guaranteed) and made a backup copy which played fine on my BD690 via DLNA. I read earlier on this thread that there hadn't been a firmware update w/Cinavia yet so I wasn't surprised but it got me wondering, has LG made any announcement about whether it intends updates to foist Cinavia on its older players? At this point I don't plan to install any updates until I see it confirmed that Cinavia isn't on it however I'm wondering if I really need to be that vigilant about it or if its more likely only going to be applied to their new players only released since last year?

Also as long as I'm being paranoid, is there any chance that Cinavia can be loaded on to the player not via firmware update but through a Cinavia protected disk? That seems far fetched to me but I stumbled on a thread on Videohelp.com that said Cinavia could be installed on your player that way and I'd like to know for sure that's not the case before I play any disk that has it. (Typically not a problem since I prefer watching the backup copies anyway but the wife likes to watch the extras sometimes which I prefer not to rip).
post #2148 of 2320
A third party having access to LG Flash Rom to be able to inject Cinavia is extremely unlikely.
post #2149 of 2320
Can anybody confirm for me that the LG BD630/BD640 can connect to network shares via SMB/CIFS?

I wouldn't know the technology required to be honest about it. You're saying that for a disk to load Cinavia on to a player it would need to have specific coding for each particular manufacturer instead of just something that could load on to any player? If that's the case then yeah that seems extremely unlikely to me too.
post #2151 of 2320
Nah, Cinavia has to be part of the firmware. It can't be "installed" from a movie, or anything like that.

That's what I figured. Thanks for confirming though.

A similar issue occurred with firmware version 8.97.413.E, but it was not a consistent issue like with 8.97.422.E.

With the older firmware, from time to time the player would become completely unresponsive while navigating the main menu on the Star Trek TNG blu-ray title and would require me to pull the power cord.

I was just wondering if anyone has the same issue(s)? I am not able to create it with any other titles, and have no problems on my older Sony player I dug out.

I have the exact same problem too. Did you ever manage to fix it? Tbh the Bd670 has had numerous problems and we're thinking of trading in for something else at the weekend.
post #2154 of 2320
Sorry couldn't edit. Tried an older firmware version (ending in 356) and it still does the same thing. I guess this really just is a **** player so I probably won't be touching LG again.
Anybody fancy joining me in taking a big dump over the player cause that's all it's worth lol

Interestingly it won't even play Total Recall now. I get it to the main menu, press Play and it shuts off. Honestly, piece of crap. how hard can it be to make something that works?

the source of all is a bluray original disc i think, since i downloaded it as full copy 1:1 -> BDMV and CERTIFICATE folders.
now u suggest me to convert to mkv and to use tsmuxer to create avchd.
what's avchd? it's a video codec? anyway if using txmuxer gives me a bdmv and certificate output it's ok for me.
plz can u suggest me a valid free software to convert to mkv? ty

Lol at LG's customer support. Contact via email? Submission form temporarily unavailable! Live chat? "At the moment we have no agents available, please contact us via e-mail". Bloody Koreans eh?
