    Converting *.WTV while preserving AC-3 (5.1)

    Normal 0

    Hello, 

    I have x64 Vista Ultimate with TV Pack installed. I would like to convert recorded HD shows to DVR-MS or any other format while preserving AC-3 (5.1). 

    I have tried everything; todvrms, power director 7, super, wtv2mkv, MCEBuddy 2,... Although they all convert video just fine, nothing seems to preserve surround sound. It always turns out to be 2 channels, while the original wtv file is AC3 (5.1).

    Any suggestions? I have installed vista codec (Shark007), ffdshow,…, but it does not help

    Please help

    Thank you for the link. That seems a bit complicated for a simple folk like I.

     I was looking for a simple one-click app :)

     Never the less, I will play around with link above.

     Thx for your time!
