Help getting 1080p versions of 4K77 & 4K83 please

Hi all,
Just registered on the site to see if someone could help me out getting a copy of the 4K77 ad 4K83 DNR in 1080p. I was able to d/l the 2160p versions from a torrent site but I don’t have a myspleen account and I don’t know how to access usenet and so I’m at a loss at how to obtain the 1080p versions.

Why the 1080p versions? Well, primarily because my home theater uses a projector and a non-4K (4th gen) Apple TV and an Oppo UDP 203 UHD blu-ray player. The Oppo won’t play BDXL discs that are needed to fit the movies on a single disc (each). I looked into Plex but I don’t have a 4K Apple TV and even if I did it seems that it won’t direct stream 4k unless it’s 30 fps, which is probably not what these two versions are (I presume they’re theatrical 24 fps). I really do want them on blu-ray and so I figure the 1080p versions are my best bet (and 1080p looks great on my 2.35:1 103" screen.

If anyone could help with advice, suggestions, or any other way I would be super grateful!

You should be able to put the 4K MKV files on a flash drive and plug that into your Oppo and play the files directly. I watch the 4K versions that way (I plug the flash drive directly into my TV, but the principle is the same).

Your Oppo should play 50GB DL bluray discs, and if so, I can point you in the right direction.

Register in the FORUMS section, not just the main page.

At least for me, my forums login doesn’t access the main page.

In their download section there is information on how to download many different versions of our beloved trilogy.

There are 1080p ~40GB bluray ISOs in there for 4K77 and 4K83.

That’s where I got mine.

I even accessed usenet, but all I could get there were mkv files and like you I wanted the ISOs.

For the menus, language options, subtitles…

We’re not allowed to post links outside of their forum, so I can’t give the exact information required on here.

Check them out and see if this helps.

Good luck.

Thank you!! I tried this (for the first time on my Oppo, never used the USB port on it before) and it worked great! I was amazed how easy it was to navigate the USB drive (an external 1 TB drive that powers via just the USB cable which made it super convenient). I was literally stunned at the incredible quality of 4K77 and 4K83 (both with DNR/2160p). I have the Despecialized versions that I haven’t unpacked and plan to compare the quality but I can’t imagine it could be better than the 4K versions. I do appreciate all the work that went into the Despecialized versions also so I do intend to check it out too.

Thank you also! I do want it on a blu-ray just for ease of storage (and I have a rather large blu-ray collection of mostly 3D movies but others as well) so I will try this tomorrow with the hopes of getting the 1080p versions I can burn on a BD-R DL 50GB disc. Really love the 2160p DNR version though but I imagine it will look just as good on my 103" 2.35:1 screen since 1080p movies look super sharp on it.

Glad I could help.

I think I’ll take a look at the grindhouse versions next.

Need a little more grit in my life. 😉
