Re: Keep DTS-HD MA Only?

So, what audio tracks do you save and/or regularly use?

What tracks are really on the Blu Ray? You mentioned that MakeMKV writes out a separate DTS track so I’m getting the idea that it’s more than a straight copy of raw data.

Thanks,

R

Re: Keep DTS-HD MA Only?

I'd like to hear from others... I'd like to know which audio tracks they are keeping... It seems that DTS HD MA is way better then regular DTS or AC3 and that there is no reason to keep the lesser quality tracks. I suppose if I was trying to play this file directly on my iPhone it would be a problem...

Re: Apple TV 4k Not DTS Compatible?

Thanks for the clarification. What client setup do I need to get the full quality DTS audio? I’m currently using Plex Media Server on a Mac Mini serving AppleTv 4K which I’ve recently learned does not deal with DTS at all. Also, I don’t think my pioneer sc55 knows about DTS HD, I need to check. So w...

Re: Keep DTS-HD MA Only?

Thanks for the reply.... Since ATV 4K and iPhone do not decode DTS at all you will always be hearing the results of a transcode, yes? Also, when you get a new receiver will you have a way of globally changing the track that is chosen? I guess you are manually selecting the lesser track now and later...

Renaming Audio & Subtitle Tracks...

I recently learned that I can rename an audio track via MKVToolNix however it takes a while to re-write a 30GB movie for this simple edit. Is there not a way to edit this resource in an easier way? Typically, I just want to name an audio track, changing from "Stereo" to "Commentary". Thoughts? Do yo...

Apple TV 4k Not DTS Compatible?

I noticed on my Plex dashboard that my direct play raw MKV or HB_H.264 or HB H.265 content is being transcoded to another format for my Apple TV 4K. So, what are people doing that allow the full uncompressed audio (DTS-HD MA) to make it to my Pioneer SC-55 AVR?

Thanks,

Robert

Keep DTS-HD MA Only?

On many BD rips I see that the best audio track is "DTS-HD MA" and it seems that this is the only track I need since Plex seems to transcode as needed to my iPhone and Apple TV 4K as well. So Typically I see: Track 1: DTS-HD MA Track 2: DTS Track 3: AC-3 (DD Surround) Track 4: Stereo (Commentary) So...

Getting Faster Blu Ray RIPS

I'm looking for a way to accelerate RIP times. It seems like some discs take twice as long as others. And of course if there are 100 obfuscated main titles you might choose to backup the disc as an interim step. I use a recent iMac and the RIP speed to a network volume (over wifi) seems no slower th...

The Counselor (2013), Which Playlist?

It looks like there are just two possibilities for this disc that contains just the Theatrical release.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
