    I have two drives. A Lite-On OEM which I paid $119 for and an LG combo HD DVD and BD burner. I'm building a second quad core system dedicate to encoding so I grabbed a second drive.


    Lite-On has another BD reader that goes for $89 but its BD read speed is only 4X vs the others 6X. That can be a factor in playback of high bitrate backups.

    Edit: Forgot the link.:p

    Question, BDs are encoded in Dolby true HD and DTS HD.
    In the BD RB dvd-9 disc, how does a standard dvd player decode these audio tracts correctly ?

    hello Jo. ;)

    edit: missed the answer on that baby.. ROFL. :p I never would have guessed that a DVD5 or DVD9 would be read as a BD on a BD DVD player.... man this is pretty cool....

    NOW to add... see my next post in this series. :)

    A standard DVD player isn't going to do anything with these discs, they are going to be in BD format.

    You can use ConvertXtoDVD. It converts BR to dvd in about an hour. The quality is great also. Just use TsRemux or TsMuxerGUI first and you are set.

    Greeny thank you for waiting;P


    BD RB converts all of the current surround sound audio tracks to AC3 448Kpbs which should be compatible with any BD playback unit, and PC's with quality BD playback software.

    The idea of doing backups with BD RB is to create a Blu-Ray disc that can be recorded to standard DVD single and dual layer media, but will playback as a Blu-Ray movie in a Blu-Ray player. The type of disc is not as important as the structure on the disc itself.


    Since Loco has stickied this I've borrowed some information from jdobbs on setup

    Sorry, had overlooked stickying this before, nice one Loco.
    Cheers Soph, i was pondering the audio side of things, it's making a lot more sense now.

    /contemplates purchase of AnyDVD and a BD reader drive, but experimenting with BD ripping will have to wait until i find a job. Am looking forward to trying out BD Rebuilder, i don't ever get excited about programs but after running DVD Rebuilder for quite a while (and still being in awe of the output it and HC Encoder produces) it'll be nice to see what BD Rebuilder has to offer.

    Sophocles what determines you using a blank DVD-5 SL compared to using a DVD-9 DL to backup a blu-ray movie?

    Creaky, loco just beat you to it. I wouldn't have thought that this was a sticky since it was last minute post before going to sleep.



    The best gauge for measuring disc size is really the length of a movie which tells you what the total frames are. I've found that movies that fall in the 2 hour range do well on a single layer disc which is always good news since they are about one eighth the cost of a dual layer disc. I've had success with movies backed up to single layer disc that were 2 hours and 10 minutes in length, and not visual artifacts.

    Yes thanks for the sticky. ;)

    @Sophy.... :p I told you I should have waited... :D

    This is interesting stuff... I'll wait for some time as I'm not entering into the BD arena yet... For 2 reasons... 1)Can't afford a stand alone BD player; 2)Can't afford a BD DVD internal reader either.... lol. :D

    GM probably an external blu-ray ODD will be the way to go, I'm going to look into one

    Greeny the wait was over.:D

    All that you need to get started is a cheap reader, you know along the lines of the cheap PC parts you recommend. LMAO

    If you get one of these and a copy of AnyDVD HD then you will have all that you need.


    Note that I was not being mean! Hmm! Mean!! Green!! Greeny!! Meany!! On second thought by that logic it's all your fault.:p

    Yeh I saw that from another post. ;) It seems like a good drive even tho the reviews are crap. ;) I should resend the statement of NOT affording another drive. lol. I'm trying to get some other stuff right now and that's sucking all me cash away from puters for now. :D

    ....gm

    add: Oh I know you "meant" nothing by it but I was wrong and don't mind admitting, fixing, or changing something to make it 'right'. :p

    Yeh I could but I'm afraid that the incoming regime will make it un-affordable for us normal people to buy anything that shoots stuff. :D

    sorry for the OT... ;)

    Sets back and learns more about this BD stuff. :O

    A quick word. If anyone runs into a bug that they feel is a flaw in BD RB please report it. Don't be the kid in the back of a class too afraid to raise their hands. Reported bugs makes it better for us all.

    jdobbs is a longstanding member here soph, perhaps if this thread takes off you could put a bug in his ear.
