Re: Firewall disc - Scsi error - MEDIUM ERROR:L-EC UNCORRECT

Had this same error on Disc 2 of The Fellowship of the Ring extended edition. Unfortunately, all my interweb-scouring led me to the conclusion that the disc was badly manufactured. Just went out and bought a new copy of the movie and the new one works flawlessly. Not exactly great news, but I guess ...

Re: HD Audio 7.1 being backed up as 5.1 only

Thanks for the info. This finally makes logical sense. I think it would best if I alerted the handbrake people to this bug. It is a nightly build after all and nothing is guaranteed to be working 100% correctly.

Re: HD Audio 7.1 being backed up as 5.1 only

Only a parser is needed for passthrough, not a decoder. HandBrake does pass the full DTS-HD track through, but if you re-encode a DTS-HD track to another format, only the core will be decoded. This is the only part that still doesn't make sense to me. I am passing the DTS-HD audio through when I fi...

Re: HD Audio 7.1 being backed up as 5.1 only

It's possible that you're right but I'm still not convinced that this is the problem. XBMC identifies the audio stream as DTS-HD MA but only 5.1 instead of 7.1. If it couldn't decode the HD audio stream why would it tell me that it is "Lossless?" Plus, the handbrake nightly build does have an option...

Re: HD Audio 7.1 being backed up as 5.1 only

Actually, this just got more confusing. MakeMKV sees an 8 channel audio stream on my encoded files but mkvinfo shows only 6. The bitrate is unchanged so it isn't just taking the normal DTS lossy audio instead. I'm rebuilding makemkv and seeing if that affects anything... edit: mkvinfo shows 8 channe...

Re: HD Audio 7.1 being backed up as 5.1 only

I think you are getting bad info from XBMC and VLC - they are just showing you the number of channels in the DTS core. I don't believe it's even possible for MakeMKV to convert DTS-HD MA 7.1 to DTS-HD MA 5.1. I'm not sure it will ease your mind any, but you can open the mkv with MakeMKV and it will...

Re: HD Audio 7.1 being backed up as 5.1 only

I ended up ripping Prometheus. The log file from MakeMKV didn't contain any information about the audio.

Any other ideas?

Re: HD Audio 7.1 being backed up as 5.1 only

HandBrake can't decode DTS-HD. It can only decode the 5.1 DTS core (or the 6.1 DTS-ES core in the case of DTS-HD 6.1). It should be able to decode TrueHD, even 7.1, however. It's not showing up in the MKVs that MakeMKV creates. I'm not running it through handbrake yet. Also, I'm using a Handbrake n...

Re: HD Audio 7.1 being backed up as 5.1 only

I don't think this is a Handbrake problem because multiple players show only 5.1 HD audio tracks in MKV files after extraction with makemkv (before encoding them with handbrake).

I can provide one after I try to rip and encode another movie. It may take some time, but I can get one for you.

HD Audio 7.1 being backed up as 5.1 only

Apologies if this has been answered somewhere here already, but I looked through the forum and couldn't find any similar issues. I'm running MakeMKV v1.7.10 on my 64-bit xubuntu 12.10 htpc. Working to digitize my DVD and blu-ray collections. I had no issues with DVDs whatsoever and started on the bl...
