The Art of Flight is now available at Red Box! I just went to rent it, but the power was out due to repairs from yesterday's storm.

Nice to know that. Other option (if you have a Netflix account) is to watch instantly in HD using the streaming service.

I have really high hopes for the new movie. Both in Dolby Atmos and once I get it home to play on my system!
Gotta love that climb in response from 50 hz down to about 16 hz. Very impressive to say the least.

I'm new to Atlanta and working on putting my system together. Where are some good places to buy and more importantly see some systems in place? (I'd love to find a place with the BenQ W7000 and Mitsubishi 7800d)

Setup a tour. Life changing experience (so I've heard).

Welcome to this part of the world!

I'm fairly new to this area too, so I'm afraid I cannot provide much information on places to visit. Actually, to be honest with you, must of the gear that I have it was purchased based on reviews and/or feedback received at multiple forums. I have a Panasonic PT-AE8000U at home, so if you are interested on a demo just let me know.

Though not practical for any HT application, you have to check out their Jericho line... Also, I hear they have the Matterhorn somewhere on the property. That would be incredible!

Take pics if you can man!

Thanks, moved here from Michigan a year ago and loving ATL.

I might take you up on that offer, so hard to get eyes on projectors that aren't $5-25k

It is now possible to analyze the exact content on the disc in just seconds with no soundcard involved! maxmercy has been very involved in this process and has confirmed that the following procedure creates a mono wave file of all channels mixed together with the proper levels. The mono wave file can then be analyzed in Spectrum Lab.

JRiver Media Center recently added a feature called "Convert Video to Audio" that was primarily intended for converting a Blu-ray concert into individual FLAC files (or other format) for playback without video or for syncing with a handheld device. This feature also enables one to instantly convert the audio from a portion of a movie into a mono wav file that can be read by Spectrum Lab.

To easily produce mono wav files for analysis in Spectrum lab you will need a computer with Windows, a Blu-ray drive, and the following:
  • JRiver Media Center build 18.0.205 or newer - download from thread at top of JRiver's forum (30 day free trial and then $50)
  • anyDVD HD (free trial and then $124 for a lifetime license)
  • dtsdecoderdll.dll file from an Arcsoft TMT installation (or demo)

Install JRiver Media Center and anyDVD HD and reboot.
anyDVD HD will put an icon in the system tray. Right click it, click Settings, click Video Blu-ray, and confirm "Enable Blu-ray Support" is checked.
Copy the dtsdecoderdll.dll file to the Windows\System32 folder for Windows 32-bit or the Windows\SysWOW64 folder for Windows 64-bit. This file enables JRiver to decode DTS-HD. You can uninstall ArcSoft TMT once you have the file.

Since this is only for the purpose of producing mono wav files, I won't go into the audio and video setup in JRiver.

Open JRiver. It will start a countdown timer in the bottom left corner that lets you decide if you want it to search your computer for files or if you want to do it manually. You can stop the import from happening if you prefer.

Go to Tools > Options (or Ctrl + O) > CD, DVD, & Blu-ray > Autoplay and set Blu-ray to Nothing

Insert a Blu-ray. anyDVD HD will decrypt the disc and make it available in JRiver in a few seconds.
Click Drives & Devices in the left pane in JRiver and then select the Blu-ray player. The Blu-ray should show up in the right pane.
Click "Get TV & Movie Info" to bring up the dialog box and select the cover art and tag source that you prefer. I usually use TMDb.


Click "Play" under the movie to trigger the download by JRiver of LAVFilters. You need to hover your cursor over the cover art to see the Play command. Downloading the LAVFilters will only need to be done initially and when JRiver indicates in the build log that it has updated to a more recent version of LAVFilters. LAVFilters is used to decode the audio/video on the Blu-ray. After the download has finished you can stop playback.

Right Click the movie and select "Import Into Library"

Click Video > Movies on the left pane and you should see the Blu-ray in your library.

Click "Tag" under the Blu-ray and the tag action window will appear on the left.
Right click anywhere on the tag action window and select "Show All Tags"

Click in the Playback Range tag and enter the playback range for your clip. For example, in Transformers you would enter 1:57:00-1:57:30 for the Megatron blasts Jazz clip.

Right Click the Blu-ray (in the right pane) and navigate to Library Tools > Convert Format. Once selected, the Convert Format command will be available at the top of the list of commands when you right click the Blu-ray in the future.


In the Convert Format action window click "Convert video to audio" and select "Uncompressed Wave" from the drop down box.

Click Options under the Convert button and enter the directory you would like the converted file
Under Mode click "Leave original file, do not add . . . . "
In the Convert Format Options, the number of files to convert at the same time needs to be set to 1.
Check "Apply DSP"
Click the box next to DSP Settings to bring up the DSP window
Check Output Format and set the channels to "1 channel (mono)" and Mixing to JRSS

Check Parametric Equalizer
In Parametric Equalizer click "Add" and then select "Adjust the volume"
Set the gain to -8.44 for 5.1 audio and select just the left channel
Add another "Adjust the volume" and set to -7.90 for 7.1 audio and select just the left channel

Make sure you only have -8.44 selected for a 5.1 track OR -7.9 selected for a 7.1 track. When JRiver downmixes to mono it applies different level adjustments to 5.1 and 7.1. Both the downmix adjustment and the PEQ adjustment end up making the LFE channel -10.2 dB and all other channels -20.2 dB. This is so no clipping can occur when combining all channels during a worse case scenario (coherent sources on all channels at maximum levels). I recommend that you check the Channels tag to see if there are 6 or 8 channels present on the Blu-ray and then activate the appropriate level adjustment in Parametric Equalizer. I arranged mine so that the 5.1 adjustment is on top and the 7.1 adjustment is on the bottom.
Click the X at the top right to close the the DSP window
Click OK and then Convert
A second or two later your file will be available in its destination folder

You can change the Playback Range tag for a different clip and convert again.
If you want virtual entries in the library for multiple clips then right click the Blu-ray, navigate to Stacks > Advanced > Create Particle. Enter a name, select "Play only this range," and enter the Playback Range. You will now have another entry in the library.




Once you have Particles created, you can also use them to create a view of just the Particles to make a virtual playlist of demo clips. cool.gif

You can also create a wav file of the entire movie. However, I recommend that you rip the disc first and then create the wav from the ripped disc. JRiver will rip Blu-rays and automatically import them into your library. It takes me between 35-60 minutes to rip a Blu-ray and another 15 minutes to convert the entire audio to a wav file.

Its NOT region free or I would have bought a copy months ago. tongue.gif There has been some discussion on this in the projector forum, software forum and there is a thread over on bluray.com. You will need a region free player to watch this unfortunately if you are in the US. Check out posts 3950 and 3953 in this thread.........

Back of the box claims region A, B, C, but it is in fact region B only unfortunately. The general word of mouth has been very positive though as far as the 3d if you have a region free player to play it on. I thought about doing the mod on my Oppo 93, but not worth it since it is really the only reason I would do the mod.

Yeah, the mod looks extremely simple to do if you buy the mod kit. Its really not that expensive, but I just cant personally justify it for one title as there is literally nothing else I care enough about to import.



Watched MAMA on Mon night and I thought the LFE, film, PQ was very forgettable all around. Glad I rented! Certainly nothing demo worthy for LFE though.

Yeah same here, I couldn't care less for BDs from other regions, except for this one of course..

There's no software that if you rip it you can remove the region lock ??

I thought just about any BD/DVD ripping software would do this. I know AnyDVD will do it.

I see that Project X has been given a 5 star bass rating. Are there certain scenes that have particularly good bass in Project X? Anybody have time stamps or frequency charts of most notable scenes?
post #8847 of 16109
WOW !!!

You guys mixing the soundtrack of Die Hard 5 - release today on Bluray - have done an excellent job....just amazing eek.gif

To sum it up....I'll be back....
post #8848 of 16109
Anyone know why they didn't release a Region A version of AoF 3D ??

Now I know someone said the case does say region A, but that it's actually locked and won't play. So maybe they think they've released a Region A version but actually haven't. Whether the error is on the case or in the encoding of the BD, who knows I guess..

Great scenes, but their utter lack of respect for nature killed any tiny bit of pleasure I got in watching it.

A travesty that they so disrespect the nature they so much rely on to get rich and famous.

Punks the lot of them.

Yeah, I could practically hear the mountains screaming every time a snowboarder landed hard or ground their edge in the snow.
