I don't even WANT to know how you figured out what a "magnet" was. 

 

XBMC still has problems with some codecs and changes in resolution. You may be able to get specific help from someone in the XBMC threads. 

 

Kalani gets all the credit for the batch file.

 

You have no idea how fortunate you really are. The first time we did this, the whole disc took 4 or 5 DAYS!

 

Enjoy.

Michael

So for those of us without access to a Blu-Ray burner, could someone possibly make one for me and I'll pay for the media? Or is there a way to run this off an external drive from a PS3?

I will have to test it out tonight when I get home.

Thanks. smile.gif I did all the copying by hand when we were doing the final testing of the BD50, and after the second one, I was like "there MUST be a way to automate something this repetitive, fiddly and annoying!" LOL

I could have made the batch file a LOT more elegant, but it was late and I was tired. smile.gif It seemed to work fine, though, on the test directory structure I was playing with! Still, it should work fine as long as all the directories are named as they should be, and they're all nicely collected in one folder.

First page explains how to do this.

Download of the full disc completed last night. Unpacked with WinRar, burned to a BD-RE with Imgburn, as per instructions on pg1. It plays flawlessly (so far) on my PS3 slim. Only had a chance to test a couple clips so far.

The menus are outstanding!!! Terrific work guys! Really amazing!

I'll continue seeding for a while, probably through the weekend at least.

Thanks again!!!

Has anybody gotten an "invalid disc error" when playing certain parts of the disc on PS3 (combined, then run through MultiAVCHD)? Each section plays except for Animation and Visual (both error out after the main menu with the "invalid disc" error). I downloaded each section separately, then followed the posted instructions to combine them into the full disc...

I d/l it yesterday, didnt take long. Im burning it on a dual layer BR now. Then it will be downstairs and blasting the neighbors!

On a side note, do you guys leave the Verify box checked in ImgBurn when you burn your copies? I do and it adds a lot of time to the burning process, like an extra 20-30 minutes. I wonder if I should uncheck that box, I've only had one disc that didnt work properly in my PS3, but it worked fine in a cheap LG player so I know the data was correct, just the PS3 didnt like it (it was only the Bass Demo part on a dual layer dvd also, so I didnt really mind)

On ANOTHER side note, does anybody else use an inkjet printer to print directly on to the discs? I missed out on a sale for 59 bucks, Staples had a printer that prints on discs, but by the time I realized it was on sale, it was sold out. If you print on the physical media, what printer do you have, or can you recommend a cheap printer for doing it? I like to buy the bluray cases, and print the labels and discs so they look as Pro as they really are. wink.gif

Thanks!

I must be doing something wrong. I downloaded the "RARed_Reference_2_BD50.torrent.DELETE.TXT" file. I deleted the ".Delete.TXT" part of the file. I see on my desktop that the file does change from a Text file to a Turrent file. I uploaded the turrent file into uTorrent and doesn't download??

I then tried to uploaded the Reference 1 turrent tile and it works??

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

The verify option seems to me to be a waste of time in this instance. The software can't do anything after the disc is burned. You playing it back on your PS3 is "verifying" whether it worked or not.

Thanks Leo, will nab it tonight!

Never mind. Finally got it to work.

Thanks again.

+1 Nothing to be done about it after the fact if the burn process did not work. I'm new to burning blu-rays, so I invested in a BD-RE (re-writable) disc. So, each time I'm ready to burn a new BD, I try it first with the BD-RE. I test it in my PS3, and if all is well, burn it again with a BD-R, so that I can re-use the BD-RE for the next project.

I verify just because I would rather know if the burn was sucessful. No surprised when trying to show off my system to my friends biggrin.gif

anyone else who burned the full BD50 notice that the vocals and the video on the REO Speedwagon clip seem to be off or is that just me? ive watched through most of the disk at this point and everything is great but that one clip just seems to not be synced. it sounds fine. just looks odd when they are singing

Smart move !

Excellent work guys, thanks for posting all the files, and than even better posting a method to combine them. Nice planning and execution on a great demo disc.

In relation to the batch file, this might not be the case for everyone, but I had to add VER>NUL as the 2nd line on my batch, in order to reset the errorlevel to 0. Might be cause I launched it a few times from the DOS prompt and it kept the error level from a previous run, not really sure, but it might be useful info for someone.

So the start of the batch for me is now.

@echo off
VER>NUL
set FULLPATH=%1

If I didn't have this, after all the instructions, it would exit before the first copy otherwise. Hope that helps someone.

Cheers,

Some of the music clips, and presumably the one you reference, isn't at the same frame rate as the movie clips. For some reason concert discs love using 29.97 frames per second instead of the 23.97 frames per second that movies are released at. My guess is that the frequent hopping between the two framerates has your equipment, for lack of a better word, confused.
post #410 of 695
that could very well be it. the Trace Adkins clip right after it was spot on and so was every other clip on the disk.

I watched the raw clip on my PC and it seemed much better. not really a big deal just through my mind for a loop.
post #411 of 695
Is there a way to get the original high quality artwork instead of downloading the picture from post #1? I downloaded that pic and printed but the resolution is pretty poor.

Thanks for putting this disc together. I have only been able to watch a few scenes but it is amazing from what I have seen!!!!

Batch-Blend file
batch-blend.zip 37k .zip file

If you have questions or are unsure please ask.

Thanks for the batch file! FYI for anyone else that runs into this problem....the name for the folder where you have the disc folders can't be long. My folder was called Reference 2 Demo and it didn't work (even with quotes around it since there' s a space). When the batch file got to the last step before copying where it said "for the record you ran this batch file by typing:" it would truncate the folder name. When I renamed the folder to temp it ran fine.

Yikes, thanks for the catch!

Yeah, odd issues where paths with spaces are concerned (other than the per-disc folders themselves). I'll have to take a look and see if I can fix that.

Meanwhile, as long as the root folder (whatever that may be, the one where all the per-disc folders are located) has no spaces, all should work as intended.
post #420 of 695
I've burnt this twice to BD50 using the same method for all folders, and for some reason the Visual and Animation sections fail, although the disc plays fine and all the other sections work. I couldn't get them to work via USB either, so maybe just something weird with my download. I'll download the whole disc and see if that fixes it.
