Can anyone help plz - AC3Filter correct settings

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys - I'm trying to play a backed-up BluRay movie on my HTPC. Win7 MCE basically can handle every one of my other video files (any I'm talking nearly everything, all codecs, I'm VERY impressed). The only thing it cant process is a DTS audiostream. PowerDVD9 doesnt share codecs, so I'm looking for the best option out there to decode DTS on-the-fly and watch a bluray movie in Windows Media Player.

I tried installing FFDShow and eventually AC3Filter, and I dont know what happened, but at the end of the day everything conflicted rendering the system unusable. I had to reformat my HD just to get the basic vids back. I lost all functionality

I sincerely dont want to install a codec pack. All I need is a DTS on the fly decoder, and the rest WMP can handle.

I had AC3Filter running on my much older system but I'm not sure how I got it working. When I tried it again, I couldnt get it to work at all. I just wanted to know if AC3Filter is the best choice for me and if so, where can I find the optimal settings. Installing AC3Filter and not getting it to work will start a chain event again screwing up my codecs so I dont want to go near it unless I'm 100% sure its going to work. Will AC3Filter allow me to open a vid file in WMP and watch a video with DTS in it?

Notes:
-TV connects to PC, ATI 5770
-using MCE
-running audio over HDMI to TV 2 speaker system so basically stereo.
-right now WMP handles everything, even 5.1 AC3 and outputs it to my 2 speaker stereo TV.

Thanks to anyone who can help!
