That's hilarious. I've had this switch for many years and have always used the numbers. After seeing your post I tried the up and down arrow -- and it WORKED! I didn't even know you could do that!

Duhhhhhh....

A little RTFM goes a long way.

Is there a time frame as to when we'll be able to build UHD discs, like we can do with BD discs?

If you mean back up a UHD disc -- it already does that. If you mean import a single UHD video file and build a UHD disc. It does that too.

But it doesn't import multiple sources into a UHD format -- or build a UHD disc from a non-UHD source, I'm working on both of those features now.

So, if I were to provide H.264, or H.265, MKV wrapped video files, with chapter marks, you'll re-encode to H.265 and provide I-frames at the chapter mark locations so that the jumping to the chapters during playback will land on the correct frame?

When I've implemented the feature, yes.

Just a note. The BD standard only allow 1080 and 2160 to be encoded in HEVC. But... on my player I've found that I use any format (480p, 720p, etc) and it will play it fine.

So, by default, when you've decided to create a UHD/HEVC disc from a non-UHD source, only 1080 or 2160 will be encoded as HEVC. But I'll also add a hidden option that will enable encoding for other formats as well (with a warning that the output may not work on all players).

Since I'm still working on it and I may find something new that prevents it -- that may change.

For multiple MKVs, yes. For a single MKV, no.

As a side note to this, the artwork for the "Game of Thrones" UHD discs indicate that not all special features may in high definition. To me that implies 480p material may be there and I suspect that it will be in H.264.

You can verify this easily with MediaInfo, no?

Can't tell from just a picture. I'd have to import them and try it myself. Have you tried it on with a Blu-ray player?

No. The background would be in that M2TS and the overlays/menu would be in 99002.m2ts.

Yes. Of the small sample that I did, the files were 1080p. I'm guessing that the art department is using a standard template, without even bothering to find out what is really on the discs.
