So while we are on the subject of ripping Blu-Ray to MKVs, I have a few questions and concerns that I can use some help with.
HTPC with ATI 6750 video capable of Bitstreaming, all connected with HDMI to my Receiver.
My current HTPC has 16 TB of space, but with about 400+ blu-ray movies ripped with anydvd-hd into ISO format, I have quickly run out of space. I had thought about going the route of building a server, but recently lost my job so money is tight right not. This made me think about going the MKV route.
So I tested two movies to try to figure it out, sex and the city 1 and 2 because part 1 contains Dolby True HD and part contains DTS-HD.
So when I normally play the ISOs, Media Browser, to Totalmedia 5 in Windows Media Center, I get the correct audio, my denon 3311 displays either Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD MA, and total media 5 displays Dolby TrueHD Pass Through or DTS-HD MSTR pass Through. Please refer to PICs 1,2,3,4.
Again this is when I mount ISO and play them in the totalmedia plug in for WMC.
My issues occurs when I try to rip to MKV.
So i choose only the movie, the HD audio file and english subtitles in MKV, Please refer to PIC 7
When I play them in TotalMedia 5 plugin for WMC, my avr shows the correct HD status, again refer to PICS 1 and 2,
However, totalmedia no longers displays either Dolby TrueHD Pass Through or DTS-HD MSTR pass Through, but instead displays Dolby TrueHD or just DTS. Please refer to PICs 5 and 6.
So am I still getting HD audio even though totalmedia no longer says pass through and doesn't state DTS-HD MSTR like it does with ISO files?
Hopefully I was able to convey my issue clearly enough that it can be understood, let me know if i can clear any confusion. Thanks for any help or suggestions.
