Same thing with running the modifier tool. I have yet to find a case where running it caused problems, so why not just run it every time to keep the instructions easy to follow:
1) Rip the original disc to a BDMV folder structure using your tool of choice (such as MakeMKV or AnyDVD HD)
2) Put the ripped folder structure inside a folder named “AVCHD”
3) Run the modifier tool for that folder
That’s it - those instructions should work for attached USB storage and network shares (SMB and NFS) for both standard and UHD Blu-rays without a need to complicate the instructions with a bunch of “if this, then that” caveats.
I agree that this should be in the beginning of the guidance, however, then it should include the caveats.
If there’s one thing I know, it’s that if it was discussed before, it will come up again. Therefore, start with simple, and for those that want to take a deep dive, test, or know all the details, include that information as well.
That is how I am going to handle my personal notes on the 203, because my brain is a FIFO buffer, and when, in the future, I start thinking, “didn’t we discuss this?”, then I have a point of reference.
