Okay, my English not good, I’m from germany, but I hope your can understand and help me.
I have ATV Flash Pro, when I play a DVD with NitoTV, I have Dolby 5.1, but I will play converted Matroska Files.
Ok, I convert the Video to Apple TV HD with Xilisoft (5000 kbps, 720p, mp4) without Sound.
I extract the AC3 File or the DTS File with MKVextract from MKV, to convert DTS in AC3 / 5.1 I use XMedia Recode.
With “Yam” I can merge the AC3 and the mp4 to a Movie with Audio and Video (I have Windows 7).
Now I copy the File to my external USB Hard Drive in FAT32, is the File larger then 4 GB, I split the File without new converting with “Boilsoft Media Splitter” in two Files.
In NitoTV, Quicktime can’t play it, but the MPlayer, AC3 Paththrough is enabled and I hear “Helicopter sound” with the MPlayer. When I disable AC3 Passthrough, I get Stereo Sound. XBMC doesn’t play the Sound to, when AC3 is enabled / DTS disabled and XBMC can’t play DVDs with Dolby Digital (no Sound).
When I change to analog, I have Stereo. Apple TV is conected with a optical Cable to my Kenwood Receiver and with HDMI to the TV.
Why can NitoTV Play DVDs in Dolby Digital 5.1 but not my MP4 Files with AC3?
Pleas help me
