[QUOTE=ptdude;1936199]Hi I want to use DVD Fab to BU my dvds and be able to play the files on a Vista Computer that has the Vista Media Center in it. I am using NON HD disks (both the purchased movie dvds and blanks) so I am not doing actual HD formats.
I have tried to use the DVD Fab to back up my DVDS and they played fine when I used a media server from d link. I was able to play the BU movies and have surround sound play on them. However when I use the Vista computer to play them I do not get the surround sound from the files. I am able to get surround sound on the original DVD if I play it in the computer and use media center to play it. But not on the BU files from DVD fab,
Can someone help me? What settings should I use with DVD Fab to back up these files? And are there any settings I need to set up on the Vista media center to assure I get the surround sound on it? Thanks Ray[/QUOTE]
I have Vista Ultimate which is an upgrade from Vista Home Prem(upgrade was done because I was Owner/Adminisrator but could not make changes(Adminisrator account was disabled by HP in Home Prembut that is another story)
Anyway not sure what your sound system contains but on my Vista system I have “Creative Media Source 5”, “Realtek High Definition Audio” and “Sound Blaster X-Fi” with “Logitech X-530 5.1 Speakers”( Outstanding setup by the way )
I have no problem hear the surrond sound on any backups I have done( As long as I choose the 5.1 audio file as the default audio source before doing the backup
Have you gone through the steps to configure your speakers in Windows Media Player and if you do by chance have the “Creative Media Source 5 on your system you will also have to configure your speakers using the [B]THX[/B] contrrl Panel”
