I ripped Kill Bill Vol 1 &2 using MakeMKV. The audio is PCM 5.1 on both discs. have Window set to Stereo for appropriate playback of Live TV. When playing back KB I get only stereo, of course. I set Windows to 7.1 to get Multi-Channel playback.

Is there a way around this? It happened both in MPC-HC and MC.

Is there a program to create an mkv and convert the audio to TrueHD or dts-HD/MA?

You can't convert the audio to either HD format if it's not on the original disc. Try using XBMC for mkv playback of ripped BD discs. There's a beta version available that bitstreams HD audio.

Yes, you can.
The truehd encoder is for mac, the dts-hd encoder is for windows.

They cost a lot of money though.

You can also use flac or wavpack for free lossless audio compression.
Flac probably shouldn't be used for more than 6 channels.

But these formats can't be bitstreamed over HDMI, so it doesn't really help you I suppose.
