brazen, thanks for your history. You sound like a kindred spirit.

In the heyday of BD, when BDs were even more expensive than the UHDs of today, I ripped a lot of BDs to external hard disks which I placed in external disk-docking stations. I did this for reasons that I won't detail.

As the price of blank media has come down so dramatically over the years-- BD-R single-layer at first and BD-R double layer later on, I have transferred many of those files back onto disk, so in this repsect you and I are different. Unless I see a compelling reason for doing so, I won't go back to storing movies on any kind of media server.

Since I too like "Last of The Mohicans", and you are so impressed with the UHD version over the BD, that'll be the second UHD bd I'll buy. If you have any other UHD recommendations, I'd love to hear them.

BTW, what display are you using and are you also using it as a computer montitor?

To keep this at least slightly on topic, I think it's great that DeUHD has provided a means of people backing up their UHD BDs.

LoL. Last of the Mohicans, while it is a pretty good older title, isn't what I was referring to. Rather, the expression meaning last of its kind regarding my display. I'm using a 65JS8500 and yes also as a monitor going on about 3 years now. As for backing up to file, while they are sort of complicated for playback, depending what complicated means to each unique individual, right off the bat it provides all your titles at the click of a mouse button, at least for me and my Harmony from my couch. These files are exact copies of the physical disc. In the event the disc is lost or compromised, I could burn it should the need arise. One also has more control of the audio/video output that can be refined through software when/if warranted resulting in a improved experience imo. Cataloging is also provided, some more extensive than others and can be tailored to the individual. Some allow linking to other devices whether on a local network or abroad. While all this sounds complicated, it's really not and doesn't require much of a learning curve but does require input and dedication. Forgive me if you're familiar with all of this. Thank you for the compliment, ditto.

Yes, I can see why you lol.

I did notice that you did not capitalize the first letter of "last", but I thought it was a typo. I figured that you had bought that particular movie and used it to tune, found the result incredible and, therefore, "a more worthy upgrade".

It still amazes me how seemingly simple, straighforward sentences can be unintentionally misundertood, depending on the mindset of the person hearing or reading it.

Have a good one.

Hi Herve. Do you have a 4k setup? I ask because I scale up most of my SDR blu-rays to 4k using madVR. I too thought there wasn't a major difference from a native 4k. The more native 4k I now play, the more I find myself replacing SDR blu-rays with UHD HDR's. To me, the difference is night and day now that I'm growing accustomed to it tbh. My seating distance varies and doesn't matter close or far. This applies to 2160p without HDR also. The addition of HDR has now taken distance out of the equation imo. I don't care how close or far you view. HDR is noticeable big time, again imo.


Blu-ray/DVD ripping shareware is limited to main movie only ripping. Pay ware opens all the possibilities like complete 1:1 disc backup. Same is true with DeUHD, pay ware, but there is no shareware for UHD...... yet.
80% of the UHD material is 2k mastered and upscaled. Probably about as good as madVR. Now HDR and WCG is great, but as far as detail it's meh.

The 4k masters, if I sit close enough to any of my 4k sets... the clarity is great. Not a huge leap, and doesn't really affect the story-telling but it sure looks good. So much more realistic face shots. Makeup artists better be on their game.

FYI, 2k DIs have a resolution of 2048x1080. That should not be confused with the final resolution of a movie on Blu-Ray - while the movie itself is 1920x1080, realize that with anamorphic presentation, the actual movie content is around 1920x900 or less (I.e., it's still letter boxed). The rest of those lines are black lines.

So going from a 2k DI (2048x1080 with anamorphic lens) will be upscaled to 3840x1800 or so, so you are getting more detail than a straight upscale of the Blu-Ray since you're not starting with a down scaled image to begin with. Whether that extra detail actually materializes into something usable is dependent on the movie. Ultra high def blurry looks similar to high def blurry, after all.

Darn it. I just bought the buffalo usb drive from Amazon Japan. I needed an external drive and it was “highly recommended” by DeUHD. Also my thought was an official uhd drive may actually be better for future ripping alternatives. Well I was wrong. There are discs on the list I would like to rip. Now I’m contemplating buying another drive. The buffalo drive is very loud and is annoying but it does work fine for DeUHD. Ripped about 6 discs so far.

DeUHD mentions about "bus-encryption" in the UHD and bluray drive. Is it being decrypted by MakeMKV with the volume key? I wish someone can test it.

I have been ripping several discs to iso with deUHD then using MakeMKV to create an MKV of just main video with audio tracks and subtitles I choose. I have found however that some iso files can't be opened with Make MKV or mounted. Not sure why. However what I discovered is that if DeUHD is running after it analyses disc I can use MakeMKV to directly rip disc. It gives a warning about possible errors due to on the fly decryption software being used but rips seem to be ok in my testing. Anyone else doing this? If so any problems discovered? It seems to be a simpler method if your end goal is an MKV file.

When you have used this method of using DeUHD ti decrypt and using MKV to rip, have you been successful? Have you played the MKV file to make sure it's good?

When I make ISO with DeUHD and ripped the main movie with MKV, if MKV doesn't rip or stop halfway showing error, I find that the same ISO that MKV has issues with will not play or only plays to a certain point and stops completely. So what I'm finding out is that if I cant make an MKV, then the ISO is bad also. So just because DeUHD can make an ISO, it doesn't always mean the file is good.

It has worked very well for me using the LG BE16NU50, I did 5 movies last night averaging about 45-60min each, and even played it on the Zappiti without issues. It's be great to get more codes

I have played the files and skipped around a bit and seems to be fine but haven't played a video from start to finish.

Cool... Maybe I'll try this method and see how it goes. You're using the Oppo-203 to play these? Are you getting HiRes sound (Atmos, DTS HD, etc...)? Are you able to strip the HDR? I have the Pana900 and was thinking of getting the Oppo203

I've got my "UHD friendly" drive on the way and will be testing these out with MakeMKV. These keys hit the web the day I got my new NAS put together and a couple of weeks after I finally got a 4K tv. Amazing timing.

I use a Shield to play them from a plex server. The Oppo can play them via plx dlna but the interface is terrible and it takes a while to start playing files. Also the oppo can't play Dolby TrueHD/Atmos when network streaming an MKV. Plays as multi-channel PCM. Some licensing limitation. All other audio including DTS-X plays fine. I don't strip HDR. I have an HDR TV which is why I'm ripping these to begin with. If you are not viewing in HDR I would just stick with standard blu ray. HDR to SDR conversion is not great and looks worse than standard blu ray. If you are trying to get the atmos track that's often restricted to the UHD disc may be worthwhile remuxing it with video form standard blu ray as to avoid HDR to SDR conversion.

I have also discovered some discs I can't open the iso or have makemkv rip on the fly with deuhd running. What worked was ripping to hard drive instead of iso and then using mkvtoolnix to remux largest m2ts file to mkv and stripping tracks I didn't want.

What firmware came on the NS50?

DO NOT update it to 1.03! You will lose the ability to read UHD discs!
The firmware notes say:

12/08/2017
◆ Model : WH16NS40
◆ Version : N1.03
◆ Improvement Point : Improved BD UHD disc compatibility

That is a lie. I flashed it today and it no longer reads UHD. Says No Disc. So did another guy. Discussing it here:

thanks for the heads up, not going to touch it. On side note, the supply is pretty recent on amazon, people better get their drives quick before 1.03 becomes the shipping drive.

Why do you want to update the firmware when it rips perfectly? To test if they will fix the "bug" of reading UHD bluray disc and close the loophole?

I was just trying to grab a FW before they closed the hole

Anyone know if the external Asus BW-16D1X-U is an "UHD-Friendly" drive? It probably has a LG internal drive in it, but I found nothing on the internet. It seems to be a North America only model, so DeUHD web site does not list it. They only list BW-16D1H-U, which is $60 more expensive. I want to go with an external drive that is easier to work with on my Intel NUC PC.

do you have a UHD you can try in it? the disk will show up and you can read the directories if the drive is friendly.

I do, but I have to buy the drive to test it out and ship it back if it is not "friendly". I guess that is the only way to find out if no one knows.
