Yeah PMS can handle remuxing on the fly which is useful (Y)

The reason I still use MKV2VOB though is the DTS - PCM conversion in PMS is still screwed up - Outputs in the wrong channels, plus uses an incorrect method to convert DTS to PCM.

By the way, looks like DTS support is imminent for everyone. Right now you can only get DTS by creating an AVCHD [can't stream] or by transcoding to PCM [need a receiver that does PCM over HDMI]. The PS3 doesn't natively support DTS from the XMB, only from disc - XMB supports AC3 5.1 only.

Test file - http://xnk.nu/dts/Logo-DTS.VOB

Basically tricks the PS3 into thinking it's PCM when it's actually DTS - PS3 info bar will say 2Ch PCM, however your receiver DTS light will be on (Y)

Support could be added to PMS as well - http://ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=603

DTS is now working!

V2.4.4 Beta 2 15/Feb/2009

Added DTS can now be played from file without transcoding to AC3 (Disc/Streaming). *

Fixed DivX not recognized as valid.

Fixed Drag and Drop not recognize ts files.

http://www.3r1c.eu/mkv2vob/beta/244b2/mkv2vob.exe

* Only 1536kbps DTS supported.

768 will not work (maybe in future).

Thankfully 1536 is far more popular and all blu-ray use this.

Do not change any audio settings in the ps3 that effects audio playback.

The PS3 must pass the DTS untouched.

The options when you press triangle must be Audio: Left + Right and Volume: Normal.

Basically it tricks your PS3 into thinking it's 2 Ch PCM present in the file, something [PCM] that the PS3 would pass untouched to the receiver. The PS3 wouldn't try to decode PCM as there's nothing to decode, PCM is uncompressed and ready to play. Luckily your receiver knows better and recognizes that it's not PCM, and is actually DTS, so it decodes it :p

Therefore pay no attention to the info bar when playing the file [select], it will say 2Ch PCM, however your receiver DTS light will be on (Y)

Just tested 4 movies, all working great (Y)

The outputted file won't work on the PC, so you may want to keep your original files if PC playback matters to you.

Figured out 768kbps DTS.

Next version will work with that too

Never seen 768kbps DTS, but what the heck it's getting supported anyway.

Well it is hard to tell with you sometimes, you do kid around an awful lot, then are quite prone to busting balls on occasion as well haha.

Calm down I ain't offended, my bad for jumping the gun. No need to say we never get along, that's not true, unless you want it to be :/

Yes you can split to fat32 and keep dts.

Fixed old ac3 encoder which causes stuttering still used when downsampling/fixing ac3.

Fixed DVD-5 split sometimes a few bytes too large.
