MakeMKV Update INFO

I also got one HP's LG BU40N with firmware BW40. It can't play 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray even the LG BU40N model is on the 4K UHD BD playback compatible list. I know 4K UHD BD's playback requirement & I have already had several Pioneer and LG drives played 4K UHD BD successfully. The requirements: - Intel 7th+ Gen CPU with HD630/UHD630/Iris 640+ iGPU. 'the proper firmware' meaning for it to work with MakeMKV. The BU40N is an official UHD drive with matching AACS 2.0 host certificate. Those dont work with anydvd, period no matter the firmware on it. Last time I checked at least, i clicked be wrong. But this is not an anydvd problem. That's a drive problem. As such, this it's'use on the wrong section.

MakeMKV now supports official UHD drives such as LG WH16NS60, LG BU40N and clones. but theses drives only work with older firmware such as 1.00 or mk firmware. these drives also have no sleep bug so no need to eject the disk if you pause a movie.

Important information to know

Bu40n Makemkv

1. In MakeMKV 1.12.3+ keys are automatically downloaded
2. to playback 4k disks on a pc you need an intel 6000 series or higher igpu, a nvidia 10xx series or higher for hw decoding or a very powerful cpu i7 4790k or higher for sw decoding.
3. if the disk is in hdr and your tv/monitor is not it may look washed out use MPC-HC with madvr or mpv to tone map so it does not look dull.
4. the firmware flash is not magic making the drive be able to read 4k disks will not make them play it you will still need to use make mkv or something else to decrypt the disk.
