I guess there are a couple of options for now to “avoid” the broken TrueHD/Atoms track, and all will give “Lossless” sound but not ATMOS:
- Decode instead of Bitstream - This works, and I could make a “Zone Switch” in JRiver with a feild like “Bitstream” = No for these titles and then it would switch to decoding. Benefit is when/if it is fixed I can just remove this value for these titles.
- Mux In DTS-MA Track - Got this idea from @gonca but instead of re-encoding, I’ve muxed in the DTS-MA track (using tsmuxer) the DTS-MA track from the BD disc that came in the same packaging (tsmuxer has not been updated for some time but seems to work fine). I then replaced the M2TS in my older structure and it worked fine though some of the PGS tracks now don’t have a lang tag. These DTS-MA tracks are reported as being slightly different in length but it must be at the end as the lip-sync is spot on for both Pirates and GG2. I guess you could do the same with the MKV muxers.
