The purpose of this thread is to help create a list of movies that have been successfully backed up using BD RB, or inversely to provide a list of those attempts that have failed. The time it takes to reencode a movie can vary greatly depending on the speed of ones system, but regardless it will take more than 4 hours with most Blu-Ray movies even on a fast system. On a fast dual core system a reencode can take 7 or more hours, and if one has but a single system then they will get no more than one or two tries in a 24 hour day. Archiving movie reencodes could save us all time by providing us with information to help us to select only those movies that have a proven track record of success, and to avoid those that fail. Some movies will no doubt work for some but not for others which could help us point to common setup or system issues to get them on track. This will not only save time in the present but it will also provide feedback to jdobbs so that he can find a fix for those that have failed on all systems. To get this right we have to adhere to some standards. I will list some points that I think is important but they need not be the only points so suggestions as to how we can improve the thread are welcomed. For movies that have been successfully reencoded we will need this information: 1. Name of movie, region, and version, e.g. extended cuts. 2. Disc reader such as LG or Lite-On and method used to rip it to ones hard drive, e.g. AnyDVD HD. 3. How it was tested for playback such as PC, or home unit make and model. 4. Type and make of disc it was burned to e.g. BD-5,BD-9, or BD-25. For movies that have failed we will need some of the info above plus some extra depending on whether it failed to reencode or just failed to playback on a particular playback unit. 1. Tell us if it played back on a PC drive but not in a standalone unit 2. Make of unit that it wouldn’t play back on 3. Encoding system specs including if it is overclocked and how it is cooled. 4. Issues during initial setup if any that might lead to a cause. More will be added to the above requests over time either through suggestions or because it came up in discussion. Please, let’s try to keep the thread clean of unnecessary chat discussions although a friendly line or two in a legitimate post is encouraged. I will make a second post below this one that will be used to list our outcomes so that in time one can quickly check back and review it. Summer is coming and I am seasonally employed and off for a couple of months. I also have a very fast dedicated BD encoding system so I will be able to test failures as often as I can Q9550@3.741 GHz, and my main system Q9650@3.94 GHz.
