Help: looking for... getting the 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 and 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!

The Some info & help for TN1’s 4K77, 4K80 & 4K83 projects of the Original Trilogy… thread in the General Assistance section of this site also has some useful links and information to threads on the 4KXX projects that feature here on the OT•com

schnitzeraffe’s post below (in this thread) is also a good source of help, info & advice too.

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. 😉

I can’t seem to d/l the 77 file. Keep getting a download failure error, using newshosting. What am I doing wrong??

Alternatively does anyone know where blu ray copies can be acquired?

Hopefully the moderators or admins from that site will let people on here know how to get invitations soon?

It does look a very good site.

Hey, according to this thread in The Cantina…

Send Nate D or Stotchy a PM and they may be able to hook you up. Good luck 😃

I have similarly been looking for one in order to grab the DNR/Non-DNR versions of 4k77 and 4k83 in 1080p specifically. This is my first post, so sorry if I’m jumping the gun here.

Also, not a related question, but I’m curious if anyone can confirm the following two questions?

  • Are there DNR/Non-DNR versions of 4k83?
  • From what I can tell, 4k80 is still in process. If I’m wrong and a version exists, someone please let me know.

There are DNR and non-DNR versions of 4k83.
And 4k80 is still in process. It’s been about a year or two and they’re almost 50% complete with the movie. A generous release estimate would be another year.

As far as getting an “Invitation code” to register to forums, I have no idea what your talking about. I used alternate methods to get my copy of you catch my drift. So I can’t be any help there, sorry.

I almost forgot, as far as 4k83 goes (and I assume 4k77? I don’t remember) version numbers don’t really matter. All the version numbers mean is what level of DNR the film has, not a particular iteration of the project like the version numbers between the Despecialized Edition.

4k83:
Version 1.2.0 is heavy DNR 1080p
Version 1.2.2 is heavy DNR 4k
Version 1.3 is light DNR but there’s two versions. One in 4k and one in 1080p.
Version 1.1 is medium DNR. One 4k and one 1080p. So two versions of that as well.
I believe version 1.0 is no DNR and one is 1080p the other 4k.

There’s other versions floating around too of various individuals color corrections and levels of degraining but these are the main ones. I don’t remember offhand which versions of 4k77 are what. I’ll be back with an update but for now it’s sleepy time.

TL;DR: Finding the version you actually want is a confusing mess. May the Force be with you.

How do I get the referral code from a current member? It says I need one to register.

I everybody,

4k83:
Version 1.2.0 is heavy DNR 1080p
Version 1.2.2 is heavy DNR 4k
Version 1.3 is light DNR but there’s two versions. One in 4k and one in 1080p.
Version 1.1 is medium DNR. One 4k and one 1080p. So two versions of that as well.
I believe version 1.0 is no DNR and one is 1080p the other 4k.

I need to download the 1.3 version in 4k and I guess I can find it on thestarwarstrilogy.com forum. I just need an invitation code for that. Could you please help me ?

I believe there may be some difference with color grading as well. I know sanjuro had a version and there may even be another grade as well.

Woops I completely forgot about this thread.

Well anyway, the different color grades from different people is a can of worms I don’t even want to open. Star Wars isn’t anywhere near as cancerous as Jedi as far as how many versions there are. But the different color grades are even worse.

As far as getting an invite to thestarwarstrilogy, I can’t help anyone there. I’d just scour the web for an “alternate” place to get it. I’ve seen the 4kxx projects floating around a few different places.
