ZERO (and it will be ZERO on December 31, 2018).


Why what's so special about it?



LOL! That's ZERO as in the number "0", not the movie "ZERO"!

I don't do retail theaters.

Finally got my new PC all set up.

As I feared, 4K ultra discs will not play on my new setup. Cyberlink tells me that the platform (Intel Xeon processor) does not support SGX runtime when I try to install it. Kobylake is apparently the ONLY processor that can be used.

I can read the disc IDs to populate DVDP, so all is not lost. I really wouldn't be watching them on my PC anyway, other than to collect caat/crew.

There does appear to be a problem here. I located a profile in my collection that "should have" a child profile, but there was nothing in the "boxset contents" field. I tried to do a preview of updates to see if the online had the child profile disc ID in the "boxset contents" field. The preview indicated that no updates to my local were required, which told me the online profile ALSO did not have the "child profile" in the "boxset contents" field.

I then searched the online for the child profile and was surprised to see that it actually existed as a disc ID profile with the correct cover images. So I added it to my local and added it locally to the parent profile.

I then attempted to contribute the parent profile to add the "boxset content" information to the online database, and low and behold, it told me there were no changes to be contributed?

Something is not working correctly here!

You may also need to update the "parent" profile to download the "boxset contents".

Try to "Flag" the profile, not just highlight it! Then go to Collection>Flagged>Check for Child Profiles.

If nothing gets downloaded, that means there are no child profiles associated wtih that profile in the online database.

I'm not aware of any external 4k ultra drives for PC's. The Pioneer BDR-211UBK Internal BD/DVD/CD Writer Supporting Ultra HD Blu-Ray Playback appears to be one of the only internal drives available ($116.95 @ Amazon)

Thanks for those updates. My PC is just about configured. Will get to try it soon myself.

I finally got a chance to install my new PC and 4K UHD drive, along with PowerDVD 16. I am able to load disc ID into DVD Profiler, but my system is still too old to play 4k UHD, but that's OK. I don't want to spend the money. I am happy with my fast, obsolete ThinkPad.

Using the free CyberLink Ultra HD Blu-ray Advisor, I got complete and detailed information about what was missing in my system - basically, inadequate GPU support for the new UHD disc standards. Blu-Rays play fine of course, and I have enough power and screen resolution to play unprotected 4K UHD Youtube content, just not 4k UHD discs.


I have a feeling I'm going to have the same problem. My new PC doesn't arrive until next week and I won't have time to work on it until after the new year, so it will be a while. I read somewhere that the graphics have to be imbedded (not a separate video card) and have to have 8GB of memory plus all the GPU and HDCP stuff. I ordered a separate graphics board, so I'm thinking it's not going to work. I'm not sure my 26" monitor will support the Ultra standards either.

If I can read and populate Ultra disc IDs into DVDP (which it sounds like I will), then I'll be good for now.

Just ordered a new PC with this processor: Intel Xeon W-2123 3.6GHz, 3.9GHz Turbo, 4C, 8.25M Cache, HT, (120W) DDR4-2666 and this video card: NVIDIA Quadro P1000, 4GB (5820T) and have CyberLink PowerDVD 17. Am ordering a Pioneer BDR-211UBK internal drive and hoping this all works together. If I can just read the disc ID's I'd be happy.
