I am wanting to play some HD files on some PS3's and XBOX 360s. I use my home computer as a server for my fraternity house and want to be able to stream HD video throughout our house.

This is a two part question. I can download the .m2ts files but they do not play on XBOX 360s. I tried converting .mkv files to .ts but (1) the files are huge 8gb for 50min, and (2) the audio isn't 5.1. When I play on my PS3 it says that its 5.1 but my receiver only picks up a 2.1 signal. I use Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate and made sure the settings were 5.1 and AC3 auido codec. Anyone know how I can convert them correctly.

If there is no other way then I just want to convert them to .m2ts with 5.1 so I can play them on my PS3 and others in the house can have them. Anyone know of converters to .m2ts?


I'd like the 1st solution so I can make everyone happy, and would like a way to keep files size to a minimum (4gb for a normal .m2ts 1080p file)
