    Default Samsung UExxD7000 sets and RW/FF options

    Hi,
    I've just purchased 2 Samsung sets (UE40D7000 and UE56D7000 in the UK) and embarked on a project to digitise all of my DVD collection (about 400 disks). Seemed the best idea was to digitise to a single VOB using a product called DVDFab - the support department recommended the VOB format as I would just get 1 VOB file out of the ripper. On these latest Samsung sets, there seemed no way of fast forward or rewind, simply a play and pause option. When you click on the centre button of the remote, you get the "Tools" menu displayed on the bottom of the screen (or if you press the Tools button on the remote). You also see an info slider on the top of the screen which you cannot get into. The file in this thread to test for Auto-Chaptering didn't seem to work. The select chapter option on the Tools menu gives you a count of the number of files in the folder you are using.
    I found a solution by ripping the DVD into a MK4 format which produced a single ripped file with a ".idx" and ".sub" file. [I used the "remux" option on the profile setting to get a full quality file in the DVDFab product]. The Samsung firmware seems happier with this and in the Tools menus there is a "Stopwatch" icon that supports a timed search through the movie. Also, pressing the left and right arrows on the centre of the remote jumps the movie forwards and backwards.
    Recently, the latest version of DVDFab now produces the ".idx" and ".sub" files with a VOB compression output. However, the Samsung firmware doesn't seem to recognise this in the same way as it does MKV format (the stopwatch icon is greyed out).
    It would be nice to get a chapter selection as well as the FF/RW which seems to work on these sets with MKV format - hope this helps anyone going through the hoops that I did!

    Please make sure that your device supports chaptering first though, using Gus' .mta file and Mezzmo 2.4.2
    just want to let people know that i found the easiest way to test if your PC supports chaptering is to download Samsung PC share manger 4.1 (4.2 doesn't support chaptering).

    Also i couldn't get mezzmo to update its DB and add the chaptering for existing files, i had to add some new video files and create the mta files before adding them to mezzmo.

    here is a link for 4.1

    credit for the link goes to:

    i would love to beta test your auto chapter gen!!!

    my tv is a PS50C6500

    regards!

    Can you please tell me when you sent the request in, as we don't have any outstanding requests for testing chaptering at the moment.

    The just-released v2.4.3 now has auto-chaptering built-in. You can manually change the chapter duration from the default 15 minutes via a device profile change. It's also possible to change the default icon, if you don't like it.

    If you have existing .mta files, they'll take precedence, but if you don't, then Mezzmo will still tell the device to enable chapters (provided your device supports them in the first place).

    Could you please explain how to do the profile change? This feature is GREAT and works very well on my Samsung C650 television. I've found the directory C:\ProgramData\Conceiva\Mezzmo\DeviceProfiles but it contains 'SamsungB', 'SamsungD', and 'SamsungCaptivate' but no 'Samsung C'. I've checked the Mezzmo application, which is using 'Samsung C' profile, but a search of my computer did not reveal where it's getting it from.

    An obvious enhancement would be for the 'edit profile' GUI to have a box to set the chaptering length; also for 'maintain library' to generate thumbnails for the appropriate points, if that's possible!

    Anyway, it's a huge step forward as it is, and much appreciated.
