Seriously doubt that, pretty sure they lack the proper authentication hardware.
I'll hope that the firmware for the LG drives can be updated to AACS 2.0 _ it'd be nice to save some money for a change.
Yeah, more then likely, but try not to be such a wet blanket...
I'm a realist, if you don't get your hopes up you can't get disappointed.
Answer from LG Support
"Thank you very much for contacting LG Electronics Deutschland GmbH.
We currently have no PC drive in the portfolio, which is compatible with the new UHD-BR format.
Whether or, if an adaptation in the form of a firmware (if possible), or a compatible model will appear, is currently unknown."
Looks like God answered...
Bout what I expected.
There probably is a drive coming, they just don't want to commit, and/or they're not allowed to make it public.
More likely the support staff don't know as they just reply from a standard script
I guess it would be expecting too much if one of them would actually do their job and go find out, rather then just reading what's in front of them.
They are doing their job. They aren't given the information until they are allowed to release it.
I attach log blu-ray files uhd not decrypt
Anydvd doesn't have uhd support yet. That has been clear since page 1 and uhd discs first came out.
Here we go.
The first UHD and AACS 2.0 - PC-Drive.
May some of use could provide some data as soon as this gets available.
... and less expensive. Nearly 400€ :/
Already reported in this thread a couple of weeks ago
Problem is, this drive will not stream data unless every component of the PC supports AACS 2.0 and Intel's SGX protocol.
Any BDXL drive can read UHD Blu-rays.
I bought my Asus BW-16D1HT BDXL drive last december (12/2016)
Current Any-Dvd HD can rip encrypted copy of UHD Blu-Ray disk.
But there is no software player for UHD Blu-Rays. Cyberlink says its coming but when.. nobody knows.
Wrong. As posted numerous times now. They can SEE the contents and copy it off the disc but the buck stops there. They very likely CANNOT DECRYPT the contents because of the lack of AACS 2.0 support. Any thing can copy encrypted content, even windows explorer, that's not the issue. The issue is to DECRYPT it. Cyberlink has been granted certification for PowerDVD 17 and it'll likely be released in the coming months as they always do with their next version (feb-april)
At least that will be a good reason to upgrade editions.
If the requirements are what they seem to be, nobody will buy PowerDVD to play UHD discs. Most will have to do a 100% hardware upgrade to play stupid discs....
We'll see how far James wants to go with this, if he decides to do all the upgrades and gets around AACS 2.0, then we won't really need to do anything.
With AACS 2.0 circumvented at disc level, it will simply be seen as 2160p recording with HEV.265 coding. No DMR, no Playready 3.0 to worry about.
If your video card isn't up to the task though, you will have to upgrade that, but it won't be because of all the DMR BS.
I believe you're still going to need an UHD Blu-ray reader though.
When my computer got stolen and I had to build a new one, I bought an external Samsung UBD Bluray drive.
Samsung UBD-K8500 3D Wi-Fi 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player (2016 Model) and I have been having issues with it, I am sending it back (RMA)
I moved the thread to High Def Hardware.
