The WDTV doesn't play ripped blueray disks with True HD sound. The WDTV will play the movie but there will simply be no sound whatsover. DTS is available only for other foreign language. Is there any conversion software available to convert ripped movie files with True HD sound to something the WDTV will play successfully like being able to convert it to DTS (that would be incredible) or even AC3? ???
