Hi,

Ifinally have some decent download speeds on these! I hope to have them finished this weekend, thanks for everything!

I will seed them as long as my computer is on (I don't leave it on all day and night).

Could you tell me which program you are using to cut the scenes and make the discs with?

Cheers,
Mcstyvie

I read on a Finnish (Finland) A/V forum that they had some trouble with the music disc. It was mentioned that the Eagles clip is corrupted and that the volume level from Chicago is 10-15db lower than the rest of the clips.

Just a clarification, nothing additional as far as processing or altering the clips has been done to them on either the audio or video other than extract them and cut them. The audio and video are the same as the original discs. Once thing that I've noticed is that the Dolby TrueHD audio is usually mastered at a lower level compared to the DTS, but this is not coming from the authored disc but from the original mastered disc. Also, I believe that the difference on the Chicago clip is because the sound for this clip is LPCM, so depending on your specific receiver/pre and what it does to the different types of codecs. There is usually a place in the configuration for the receiver/pre where you can adjust for these differences, at least I know the Onkyo/Integra receivers/pre have it.

Anyone else experiencing anything like this?

I would love to hear directly form our Finnish friends, don't worry about English, my Finnish is worst than your English for sure.

The cutting I've done it with TsMuxer and the actual disc is a long process. Menus are created in Photoshop then imported into Scenarist and then authored with Scenarist.

I've heard lately that most professionals that do this kind of stuff are now using Sony Blu-print, but for the regular guy MultiAVCHD has most of the tools you would need and creates very nice menus with out going to technical. MultiHVCHD can be used to cut the clips too.

Mine appears to have downloaded and I'm still seeding it. I haven't UNRAR'ed it yet, but seems like it worked.

Bummer, that is one of my favorite clips. You ought to download it again, or wait for the BD.

In version 1 of my disc the same thing happened on the Dave Matthews clip. Several people reported that the audio was lower (or higher, can't remember exactly) and know for a fact that the clip was 100% untouched I shrugged their statements off. After a few people had stepped up I got out the SPL meter and did a controlled test between my disc and the original. IIRC it was about 10db off.

I never figured out exactly what it was. There were some discussion of attenuation capabilities residing in the TrueHD headers that may not have been set on my disc. Seems like its a TrueHD issue. I can say that my controlled test was conducted on a phat PS3 which meant the stream was LPCM'd to my AVR, maybe that too has something to do with it. Regardless, even though the clip was 100% untouched it behaved differently than on the original disc. Where this header (not sure if that's the correct term) data is executed is unknown to me?

I completed the Animation DVD and it worked well, but the Bass one locks my Oppo up.

I thought I did the exact same RAR extraction and then ImgBurn.

What is the folder structure for the DVD?

For the Animation Stuff I have that as the first folder name and then the next level down is Disc and Index Files.

For the Bass Stuff I originally had that as the top and then the first folder down then BDMV and Index and Movie Files. So I am reburning without the Bass Stuff as the second level and the BDMV and IMF second instead. It is still burning as I type.

Any reason the folder structure would have an impact?

All I've done is burned the BDMV folder to the disc....played the bass and animation discs flawlessly on my oppo 93. I'll burn the surround one tonight.

Thanks for putting these together.

Maybe someone can help me ?
I have been seeding from the first disc and my Pc is always on.
But, I have a problem . I originally unpacked the RAR files and they were IFO and VOB.
I also Had a program called media encoder . I ran it and was trying to see what it would and would not convert to . I ended up coverting the files to .mpls in the Playlist folder and m2ts in the Stream folder . I tried to go back and unrar them again into IFo and VOB,BUT now everytime i unrar or unzip (wit winzip) it always converts everything to mpls and m2ts. i even uninstalled media encoder ,and tried again . It still unzips or unrars to mpls and m2ts.
I do not even know which format i need touse to burn with Imageburn
Any Help??
Thank You,
Dennis

Unpacking these will never result in IFO and VOB, so you must be mistaken. Are you trying to burn a bluray disc? Or did you try converting to dvd using media coder and that is what you were thinking?

Do you intend to play this on a DVD player or a Blu-Ray player?

The intent of these discs is to burn them on a DVD but in Blu-Ray format. This way you get Blu-Ray resolution but can do it on cheaper DVD media.

Ok, then you want to keep them in the format they are in, but burn to a dual layer DVD. I can't help you there as I just stream them on my media player and don't actually burn the discs. Others here should be able to help you out with the burning though, good luck!
