Got it - so it sounds like the oppo can read the same file structure as though it has just opened an ISO image but cannot read an ISO image itself.
Has anyone tried to check whether an LG UPK90 can read the same format?
>>>Yes, I "rented" one a few months ago and like every other consumer level player it blew chunks try to play the bdmv folder. Actually it's whatever the most expensive LG player was a couple months ago, 970? Unless there's been a firmware update recently but I'd think we'd have heard about it. Haven't found a consumer level player yet that can do the folder thing yet, tried Sonys, Samsungs, LGs. You can navigate to and play an .m2ts file itself but that's <<<
And as far as ISO images, has anyone successfully ripped a Dolby Atmos ISO, written it to a triple-layer disk and confirmed that the copy plays correctly? Too expensive an inconvenient to be a practical backup-solution, but I'm just trying to understand where things stand as far as successful techniques to back up a Dolby Vision UHD...
>>>I'm not even sure which of these drives can write a disc. The ASUS bw16 can I'm sure, have to look at the specs for the LGs. Best way I know to backup a UHD with or w/o DV is makemkv > full disc backup decrypt box checked! Currently at 325-350 titles in UHD on the hard drive(s).<<<
