Why not just make another copy of the good BD50 you have?

I have a ton of regular dvd-r's, but only a couple dual layer dvd's, and I wanted it to be on one disc in all its awesomeness. biggrin.gif
I just tested the full BD50 that I burned last night on my PS3 in my HT and it worked perfect, no problems in any of the sound, video or menus. What a terrific disc this is. I want to d/l Scubasteve's now.

I want to print out the case label, what kind of paper are you guys printing it out on? Cardstock or any other special sort of paper?

I've use photo paper for the cases and it looks awesome. Some people may recommend not to use labels for the disc, I have and never had a problem but if you have a printer that does discs plus the correct media tupe for it printing directly to the disc is preferable.

I downloaded the bass demo and made the DVD without incident. I completed the Music one last night and it seems to work well except for a hiccup on the main title page. The disc skips at a part on the title screen. Anyone else run into this or most likely just a hiccup in my burning process?

Also, as much as I hate to admit...you were right on the Beiber soundtrack. Wow! My entire livingroom was shaking. That one is a great bass demo for sure as well!

OK, total torrent noob here. If I open the .zip file and get the BD50 downloading in uTorrent, 36 gig file, I don't need to get the other 5 files correct?
post #1057 of 1344
Ok so i so i burned the bass demo to dvd and tried putting it in my oppo-103, but it says unknown disc. Threw it in an old bdp-320 in the bedroom and it reads and plays just fine. Do I need to change the index and movie file to get it to play on the oppo?

That is correct.

You might.

Sorry to be so vague, but, unless someone else has exactly the same player and media, there's no way to know for sure. It sometimes also helps to name the disc AVCHD. You may also need to play with the audio and video settings of the player.

Good luck.

Changed the movie and index file and works fine in the oppo-103 now.

Where do you find the files to swap out?

Gotcha, thanks. Will need help reconstructing it probably, but downloaded half of it already.

They are in the "bass disc" folder. When you open it you will see a bdmv folder and an index and movie folder. Swap the 2 files out of the index and movie folder for the ones in the bdmv folder.

What files are in the "certificate" folder?
post #1067 of 1344
Nitpicking really late here, but FWIW the disc's menu says that the 5th Element has LPCM 5.1 audio when it actually has TrueHD. tongue.gif

Nothing of any importance. The FOLDER needs to be there for most BD players (which is why ImgBurn asks if you want it to create one - which, of course, is empty, but still necessary).

Is this folder off the main directory or a sub directory of BDMV?

Off the main directory, not a sub folder.

What are you using to burn your DVD?

The best way is to use ImgBurn and follow the directions repeated several times throughout this thread.

Let us know how it works out, and what you think.

For PS3 playback via USB, does anyone know if it's possible to have two AVCHD files on the root directory.

Just curious if this reference blu-ray demo (36gb) plus the Home Theater Demo disc ver. 2 (46gb) can both be placed on the same external USB HDD for playback via PS3.

I don't currently have a BD writer and have been experimenting with the BD9 discs and thumb drives in the last few days.

Still getting the choppy sound and video on some tracks via BD9 on PS3 and have tried both the manual swapping of files method plus the multi-AVCHD re-author method before burning via imgBurn.

The multi-AVCHD re-author method seems slightly better but still get choppy video and sound on some tracks.

However, the AVCHD files on the thumb drive root directory work flawlessly via USB.

Just curious if anyone has tried placing 2 or more AVCHD files on the root directory for playback via PS3.

Will the PS3 recognize filenames other than AVCHD for direct playback....such as AVCHD1 and AVCHD2, etc.

Will the PS3 recognize a partitioned USB drive thus allowing a single AVCHD to be placed on each partition.

Just curious if anyone has tried this before and had any success.

A big Thank You to superleo and scubasteve for your efforts in creating these demo discs....they are truly amazing....nice work!

Sorry for the off-topic post above....

For those who may be want to do what I described...unfortunately, it doesn't seem possible after reading a few other forums tonight.

It seems the PS3 will only recognize the AVCHD filename and that name only for direct playback....bummer.

It also seems the PS3 will only recognize the first FAT32 partition even if there are multiple FAT32 partitions on the USB drive.

There is a utility called AVCHDManager.exe that allows easy manipulation of multiple movies on the drive.

This utility allows each movie to be designated as the "default" AVCHD and handles the re-naming of the movie files accordingly.

Unfortunately, this does require that the drive be disconnected from the PS3 and connected to a computer to run the AVCHDManager to watch the next movie.

Also discovered jailbreak programs that allow direct file renaming from the PS3.

Clearly, there seems no elegant solution for using the PS3 to play multiple AVCHD movies on one USB drive.

Blu-Ray burning seems the best way to enjoy these discs on a PS3 unless you have a few large thumb drives laying around smile.gif

Downloaded some of these and extracted the video files onto my WDTV Live Hub. Added some poster art and I have some great quickie demos, much faster than loading in the full Blu-rays to do demos, which was my previous chore whenever someone wanted a demo.

Thanks so much to superleo and to everyone who has kept these torrents alive!

Idea for a future set of demos: classic movies! Lawrence of Arabia, Sound of Music, etc.

If you can find them in HD and at least 5.1 sound, they would be interesting demo material. That's what makes putting together a disc like this both interesting and challenging: find something that is of general interest that looks and sounds great.

That's one of the reasons Volume 2 will still be a while in coming. But we're working on it.

I love these demo discs. I got Leo's and Steves, burned them on 50gig BR media, printed out the labels, bought real Bluray cases at MicroCenter over in Detroit, and they look pro now. All I need is somebody with a printer that can print the actual disc labels for me.
Great job to all involved and hopefully, the next demo disc has some 3D content on it. If I knew how to do it I would gladly in help piecing it together
post #1079 of 1344
Are there any updated links for the Cover art? All the ones on the main page are dead frown.gif

Thanks
Flan

Got it burned with no coasters on first try! Thanks for putting this together!

One suggestion for next version, is it possible to have the Dolby, DTS, THX trailers available from a menu full screen and not just playing behind the menus? That would rock.

Now on to go build my Ultimate Bass Test music collection =)
