PS3 supports DTS, but not from the XMB bar :(

AC3 5.1 DD is good enough (Y)

The 360 can't even do AC3 5.1 and a non-transcoded MKV at the same time, it's one or the other!

3r1c said it himself,

there is no way to get 5.1 audio and h264 to work on xbox 360, its one or the other.

lol. well at least now i know the problem is not in the free space detection but the required space calculation.

ill have a look at it.

oh wait i think i figured it out myself.

your using foreign windows xp with (,) as a decimal seperator arent you?

mkvinfo returns the length in seconds of the movie like 1234.567 which on normal windows will round to 1234 but if your seperator is comma it will round to 1234567 thus the required space becomes 1000x what it should be.

I will fix this.

Im making option in the next version to add the subtitles even if language the same, and load from a seperate srt file.

Another update incoming.

Great news for those wanting to add external subtitles, that aren't included in the MKV.

latest version is out

V2.0.4 25/Feb/2008

Added Always Encode Subtitles option.

Added Load Subtitles from SRT option (put srt file in same folder as mkv with same name).

Added Overscan Compensation option (if subtitles look cut off on your tv).

Added more detailed descriptions for config options.

Added various other small improvements.

Fixed "Insufficient Disk Space" error where your decimal seperator of your OS is not a dot (some foreign windows versions).

Fixed "Type mismatch" run time error for some people.

Good thread but way too much work to play warezed movies. Xvid rips from torrent sites stream just fine to my 360, as well as the planet earth 720p hd series. shrug.

hmmm hardly too much work , since is fast as hell 2 mins for a 1.07gig file to remux hardly too much work specially when it does it all for you but each to their own :) remuxing even 1080p films now takes no time at all :) besides for me trying to watch a xvid on a 46inch hdtv is just poor quality lol only ever watch hd stuff now :)

Divx movies look decent on my 50 inch but dont compare it to a 720p or a 1080p movie! And the work that is done is nothing to watch HD content!

Maybe so, but if they're MKV, TVersity will be transcoding them on the fly.

I know, it's how I used to get my MKVs playing on my PS3 ;)

Transcoding looses video quality! not worth getting a mkv file and transcoding it on the fly! Right now I see no other way that will let you keep video quality and sound then mkvtovob! best way to watch your HD content on your PS3!! hands down!!

Audioboxer, is it possible that you could ask a feature request for me? :D

It would be nice if once you select input folder - it automatically choose the same folder as output folder

The first mkv2vob without the fancy new interface did this, sorta

      The Sony Xperia 1 III will be up for pre-order in the US from July 1 for $1,300
      by Chandrakant Isi



      Sony's mobile division might be down but is certainly not out, as the company has announced pre-order details for its latest smartphone the Xperia 1 III. If you put aside a weird numbering scheme, the Xperia 1 III has some impressive features to offer.

      For starters, the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 888 chipset which supports 5G NR (mmWave). Based on the 5 nm fabrication process, it packs in eight Kryo cores paired with the Adreno 660 GPU. It comes with 12 GB of RAM with the option to choose from 256 GB and 512 GB internal storage.



      The Xperia 1 III sports a 6.5-inch 4K OLED display. It has a refresh rate of 120 Hz and supports HDR. Sony claims that the display is 10-bit equivalent, which is a fancy way of saying that it is an 8-bit panel with dithering.

      According to Sony, the Xperia 1 III's triple camera setup was developed with the help of its Alpha 9 series camera team. It uses optics from the German company ZEISS. The setup comprises of 12 MP standard, 12 MP wide, and 12 MP telephoto lenses. Plus, there's a 0.3 MP TOF 3D depth sensor. The phone supports 4K HDR video recording with up to 120 fps. For selfies, you get an 8 MP snapper.



      The handset is rated IP65/IP68 for dust and water resistance. Head over to this link to find out more about these IP ratings. The Xperia 1 III has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The phone houses a 4,500 mAh battery with 30 W fast-charging support.

      The Sony Xperia 1 III comes in Frosted Black and Frosted Purple. With a starting price of $1,299.99, you can view the entire specs and sign up to be notified of pre-order in the US, starting from July 1, here. However, the company is tight-lipped about its shipping dates.

      Cyberpunk 2077 is back on the PlayStation Store, but with a warning for PS4 players
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Over six months after being ejected from the PlayStation Store, Cyberpunk 2077 has now returned, finally giving back PlayStation players the choice of purchasing it digitally. Sony pulled out the CD Projekt RED-developed game from its store only a week after the launch as major gameplay and performance issues became apparent, especially on old-gen base consoles.

      The developer has so far released a multitude of updates to the game across all platforms aimed at improving stability, performance, and fixing scores of bugs. The latest major update, Patch 1.23, landed only last week with another serving of fixes.

      While Sony has deemed the game ready to be let back into the PlayStation Store, there is still a warning attached for prospective buyers. Both CD Projekt RED and Sony have stated the base PlayStation 4 will experience performance issues with Cyberpunk 2077, and the PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 5 are the recommended systems for playing. Updates will continue to drop with more optimizations.

      CD Projekt RED is also developing a dedicated next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077, alongside a Witcher 3 upgrade, and that is still slated to land sometime in the second half of 2021. All current owners of the game on Xbox and PlayStation consoles will receive the upgrade for free.

      Cyberpunk 2077 is coming back to Sony's PlayStation Store on June 21
      by Subir Kathuria



      CD Projekt S.A., the parent company of Cyberpunk 2077 developer has announced in a regulatory filing that the game would be re-listed on Sony’s PlayStation Store on June 21. Sony has agreed to reinstate the game more than six months after it was removed on December 17, 2020, due to crippling issues with gameplay, primarily on the old-gen consoles.



      In a statement to Polygon, Sony said the following regarding the game's return:

      Cyberpunk 2077 went to sell over 13.7 million copies before the end of 2020 despite its controversial launch. While Sony removed the game from its store and gave refunds to players, Microsoft instead kept the listing and offered refunds without any questions, and also added a warning label for Xbox One players. Due to the issues, an investor even sued CD Projekt for making false claims and releasing it in an unfinished state

      Some of the launch issues ranged from the game not utilizing all cores of AMD's Ryzen CPUs to 8MB save file limits which corrupted save games files. Later, CD Projekt Red delayed promised DLC's and vowed to fix the issues with the game first, and has since released multiple major bug fixing updates.

      Sony announces Airpeak S1 drone tailored for its Alpha series cameras
      by Chandrakant Isi



      Sony has just introduced its professional drone dubbed the Airpeak S1. As per the Japanese company, the Airpeak S1 is the world's smallest drone that can fly with a full-size mirrorless Alpha camera onboard.

      The drone is equipped with a proprietary motor and a 17" propeller for stable flight even during windy conditions. Sony claims that the drone has a lightweight yet sturdy body. The Airpeak has a maximum speed of 55 miles per hour (90km/h). It can withstand wind speeds of up to 44.7mph.

      It uses image sensors, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), barometric pressure, and infrared ranging to optimize the flight path. There's an Electric Speed Controller (ESC) for high maneuverability and an obstacle detection system to avoid mishaps.

      The Airpeak S1 is compatible with Sony's Alpha 7S series, Alpha 7R series, and the Alpha 9 series. The latest Alpha 1 capable of shooting footage in 8k is also compatible with this drone.



      Sony's Airpeak Base web application enables users to create flight plans and check the vitals of the drone before the next flight. Sony claims that it is possible to make the drone fly along a predetermined route without real-time input. Customers can use the Android and iOS companion app to track the drone, check battery status, and even access gimbal settings. The drone offers a dual operation mode that enables one user to control the drone while the other operates the camera.

      The Airpeak S1 drone is priced at $9,000 and will ship to customers in the fall of 2021. The retail package includes an additional set of propellers. However, users will have to purchase a gimbal separately. As per Sony, the drone is made in Japan and comes with an Airpeak Protect Plan, which covers accidental damage.
