Mac Solution: Remux Blu-ray to MKV for viewing on TV via HiMedia 900B

This article introduces how to lossless backup a Blu-ray to MKV format on Mac, so that you can watch the movie on TV via HiMedia 900B.
HiMedia 900B is a conventional specialist Media Player which supports all file formats including 3D movies. With it and a HDMI cable, you can watch most videos on TV without format problems.

HiMedia Supported Formats
Although it supported Blu-rays natively, it's still not a good idea to take out Blu-ray discs frequently due to scratch issues. Also, as I own a large collection of Blu-rays, I also built a home NAS with large storage, so the file size is not the case. Like I said, generally I just want a tool that can backup Blu-rays to MKV without quality loss on Mac.

So I started to search online for an ideal tool. However, it's rather disappointing that most ripping software simply compress my Blu-ray to MKV container format with codec like H.264, AVC, ect., the converted video is downsized which doesn't work for me. At last one of my colleague recommended

Pavtube ByteCopy  (Review) and wow, it works like a charm! It's so easy to use, converts very fast and output lossless videos. Below is my workflow on Mac.

Operation system:
  • Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.7 Lion, Snow Leopard 10.6. 
  • 1G Hz or above Intel processor. 
  • 1GB physical RAM (memory) or above. 
  • 1024*768 or higher resolution display. 
  • Optical Drive: DVD drive (BD drive is required for ripping Blu-ray disc)

1. There's 6 times limitation if you use the trial version to output lossless MKV files;
2. This program also has a Windows version which works for Windows 10/Windows 8.1/Windows 8/Windows 7/Windows Vista/2003/XP find the ByteCopy here.

How to lossless backup Blu-ray to MKV for HiMedia 900B and keep multi-track?

Step 1. Launch Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac and load disc.

Firstly you need an external blu-ray drive; there's no special requirements of the drive model as long as it's supported by your Mac.

Click the top left icon and it will detect the inserted Blu-ray disc, click disc name to load them.

Step 2. Choose lossless format.

Click "Format" list and select "Multi-track Video>Lossless/encoded Multi-track MKV(*.mkv)" as below.

Step 3. Adjust V/A settings.

Click "Settings" to enter Multi-track video profile window; switch to "Video" and find the "Encode" box which is unchecked by default, so if you want a lossless MKV copy, do not touch it. The switch to "Audio", check wanted audio track; so does the "Subtitles".

Step 4. Start backing up Blu-rays to lossless MKV

Click the big "Convert" to start the conversion. It takes about 40 mins for my Macbook to backup a Blu-ray disc, but the conversion speed also depends on your computer configuration. My suggestion is not to play or edit videos when it's converting. After conversion, click "Open" or "Open output folder" to quick locate converted files.

Ok now the lossless MKV files are prepared; transfer them to your hard drive and connect it to HiMedia 900B, now you can enjoy Blu-ray movies on TV without quality loss!

Click "Format" and choose "HD Video>H.264 HD Video(*.mp4)" as below:

Step 3. Adjust output settings (Optional)

Click "Settings" to change video size, bitrate, frame rate and audio specs. I chose "original" size to playback on TV.
