Hello. I bought the WDTV Live because it supported Dolby Digital (AC3). When I rip my DVDs I use a program called 'Handbrake'. For audio I select AC3 Passthru. This copies the 5.1 ac3 audio track from the DVD to the m4v fille.

Today I tried to play a movie. The video plays fine but I get "audio not supprted 1/1"

Do I have to do something to enable audio....or did I just buy a box that can't play my movies?  :blink:

Here is the gspot read out from a DVD I ripped.

you used an mpeg 4 video container.  The MPEG-4 standard only recently added "legal" support for AC3 and I suspect that the WDTV Live doesn't support it (very few devices do yet).

You can use .mkv as a container.  It will properly pass through the AC3 track.
