Welcome to the forum, Mike. Have you tried the xvid/audiocopy profile in Generic? It shouldn’t downmix the audio to 2 channels the way the others do (but your file sizes may be larger). [quote=5.2LJeep;1998967]Hello everyone,
I have been lurking/reading these forums for a while now and finally got up the guts to sign-up and post. Great site…
I have been using DVDfab to rip my DVD collection into divx/xvid so that they can be easily viewed on a new VMC machine that I just put together…
While the video looks great, I have two issues with the audio output from DVDfab and was hoping that some of the CDfreaks might be able to help out.
When I rip a DVD into divx using the generic profile in DVDfab everything works out fine. When I play the resultant avi in VMC I only get 2 channel audio (over toslink to a 5.1/DTS capable reciever). If I play the Source DVD in VMC, I get the 5.1 signal outputted perfectly. After doing some reading on this forum, I installed AC3filter and recaptured the 5.1 but I am convinced that it is not the same quality as the source DVD (sounds more like Pro Logic II than 5.1). Does anyone know why this might be?
When I rip a DVD with DTS (selecting the DTS audio track) into generic divx, I also get 2 channel if I don’t use the AC3filter. if I do use the filter, I only get 5.1 DD and not DTS.
I’m not sure if I am doing something wrong so I was hoping that one of you guys might be able to help me out. The PC is pretty basic.
Intel Dual-core 1.8GHz
Onboard SoundMAX audio controller
ATI 2600XT HD video
Vista Home Prem.
DVDFab 4.0.3 Platinum
My goal is to have an integrated solution for media (VMC) and to have my movie collection accessible from the HDD rather than from disc. Of course I would like to have the 5.1/DTS! Lovin’ the VMC/MCE thing so far and I’m 90% to where I want it to be…
So, if experts have any suggestions that I can try, it would be greatly appreciated (take it easy on the newb;)!!).
Thanks and all the best,
