Excellent guys!   The DTS conversion is a hot topic even for most other media players. 

As new tools are being developed I will report them here.
WDTV LIVE with current official FW > HDMI > DVDO > Sony CRT Projector 150" 16/9 screen.  Toslink audio to Yamaha DTS receiver. No Network set up yet.

Hey guys,

This is my first post....I've tried 3 different programs, avidemux, popcorn mkv audio convertor and EZmkvDTStoAC3 and none of them seem to work?? I've made sure that all programs are pointing to the correct location of mkvtoolnix, mkvmerge, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

By the way, WDTV media player is my 2nd best purchase ever! The first being my HD projector :)

I haven't read the replies here but...


It's a command line program, but works PERFECTLY (and only takes about 3-4 minutes on my Athlon 5000+)

1. Demux the container file into it's h264 video and DTS audio.  You'll get a <whatever>.dts file for the audio.
2. I always rename the audio file to audio.dts
3. move the audio.dts file into the same dir as eac3to
4. open command prompt, cd into the eac3to directory
5. type:  eac3to audio.dts audio.ac3

Voila... it creates a nice audio.ac3 file for you (much smaller than dts file too)

6. move audio.* files to the directory with the other files it demux to
7. mux back to TS or M2TS!  I use tsMuxer for demuxing and muxing.

OK, so I downloaded the three tools, installed them, etc.  And the tool is telling me it can't find a .bat file in the mkvtoolsnix folder named "convert."  That's because there isn't one.  What am I doing wrong???
