There is a way around dts hd ma - use clown BD - WHICH CONVERTS DTS HDMA TO 5.1 PCM, but I do not know if the hub can play 5.1 PCM but the asus hd2 can do this.
Here are instructions:
This is how you work around DTS HD MA
Download Clown BD:
For Clown BD you will also need
to have Java, EAC3to and TsMuxer downloaded and installed on your
This is how I do it:
Rip bluray main movie with DTS HD MA
audio to harddrive using Tsmuxer (mux as Blu-ray disc)
Start Clown BD.
The first time you will have to point it to tsmuxer and eac3to and setup some
temp locations for muxing and saving. On the first screen check the box that
says “Network Media Tank Audio Options”. When you load your bluray disc rip
choose the playlist option (MPLS) and browse to the playlist file in your bluray
folder (BDMV/PLAYLIST). Using the MPLS will keep original chapter
On the second screen uncheck all the boxes except for LPCM under
“output audio format”. Under “Output video format” select blu-ray.
Click next and let it do it’s thing. In the end you will have a blu-ray file
with WAV multi channel LPCM. The resulting file will be about 2-4 gigs bigger
than the original (because to are uncompressing the audio), but you will have hd
muti-channel sound up to 7.1 sound.
I then use imgburm to create a ISO
file of the converted blu-ray for my internal oplay HDD.
To play this
file select HDMI Multi Channel LPCM instead of RAW in the Oplays audio
Try it! You won’t be disappointed the sound is fantastic, and
with DTS core you will only get 5.1 even if the movie is 7.1. With this method
you will get 7.1 if the movie has it.
Of course you need to have an amp
with HDMI and built in DST HD MA and Dolby True HD capabilities.
