I just want to share the experience the problems I am facing with MKV used as a source. Maybe because of this, the software for anthem will be more flexible. If other people are facing this problem too, they know what to do.
Sorry about that guys. Please do the needful.
Please do not be offended by my comments. I did not mean to incur you were doing anything wrong.
Much of the material on torrents is made available contrary to copyright and other laws and may be illegal in some countries and discussion or working on it on AVS may be contrary to AVS rules.
And primarily I was suggesting that persons who allow others to obtain this material may not have taken the time to copy it with the care necessary to obtain good qualities.
The ripping/copy software available may not allow the copier to select the most optimum audio file necessary to ensure good quality and maybe they might or have
selected the lowest quality multi channel that was available on the disc because it was the smallest download size. not because of any good audio qualities.
I have several hundred dvd and Bluray files for my own use.
I always take the time to use the highest quality video and audio codec available on the disc I am copying for my own use. Either a BluRay Folder copy( BDMV). M2TS, or an MKV file.
There is also the person or persons on the internet out to destroy whatever system they can gain access to by downloading their video file so they can do their harm.
In regards to the D2v or other Anthem unit, it is doing exactly what it was designed to do which is playback whatever you feed it to play. And apparently I would surmise
the video file you are attempting to use has only a low bit rate audio file to save downloading time and storage.
Until you can possibly run the file with Media Info you will not know for sure what is available on the file you downloaded.
