So a while back I ran out of room on my WHS and since it had been in operation for many years I figured it was time for a refresh. I rebuilt a new WHS and used WHS 2011. Long story short now that I have the new server and more room I decided to start ripping the remainder of the movies I have left on the shelf to the server. But now I have a nice audio setup and can fully use DTS-HD and Dolby true HD...so I was going to re-rip my Blu-rays.
I started with the star wars Blu-ray set and loaded up make MKV, looked up the proper track info for the forced subtitles, selected the main movie angle 1, and for audio I selected the DTS-HD track and the DTS track (so If I playback on say my PC upstairs I can use AC3 filter and select the second track of audio to be able to hear it). Two hours later I have my MKV.
The HTPC (win7 x64, AMD CPU, 8GB, 120GB SSD, 1TB HDD, LG Blu-ray) is using a AMD 6950 hooked via HDMI to a Denon AVR 3808CI. I have Arcsoft TMT for blu-ray play back and for mkv playback I have the last available Matroska splitter. I have no other codec installed, not even ffdshow.
When I playback Star Wars (the one I just ripped) from my WHS I get weird audio / video speed ups, sometimes it doesn't happen right away, but I can always make it do it if I skip ahead or back. When playing back the receiver also does not show the HD track is playing, just the DTS. I check the tray icon for Matroska and it shows the HD track is selected.
Most of the other Blu-ray rips I have seem to work fine but they don't have the HD audio. Which as I said I'd like to go back and now re-rip these and have the HD audio.
First... did I rip this right? As I said I used Make MKV, selected just the audio and video I wanted and ripped to a file. Make MKV is pretty straight forward and I didn't mess with any other options. Should I have just ripped the HD track and nothing else?
Or is it just simply a matter of Matroska not working properly and I need another codec installed?
I haven't ripped any blu-rays in years so I'm a bit rusty, and I have about 100 I need to get over to my server
I've read through about a thousand and one posts relating to blu-ray ripping but nothing specifically addresses what I am trying to do and shows up with the same playback issues. I'm trying to keep things as simple as possible but need to use mkv so I do not have to buy a copy of TMT for every damned machine I have to playback and ISO..and I'd rather not have my kids getting in to the closet to pull discs out that they will surely scratch up... hence the whole purpose of having the media server
