Question about converting encoded lossless tracks to something else.
So, I'm using a Mac and MakeMKV to rip my DVD/BDs. But my prepro doesn't understand the newer codecs so I'd like to convert them to 7.1 LPCM. Is that even possible?
I know 7.1 won't play over S/PDIF, only HDMI. So that's OK. And that also means I'd need multiple audio tracks, which mkv is OK with. (BTW, can I rename the tracks to something sensible?)
This is for playback via a LaCie LaCinema.
Assuming I'm successful, what tool can I use to confirm that the mkv audio tracks are the way I need them to be?
