Okay sorry for my ignorance, but Im not totally up to par with audio… Heres what im doing and where I have questions…
have HTPC where I rip my bluray movies and store on hard drives.
currently have 1, but plan to get 2 more WD TV Hubs where I will watch my ripped blurays anywhere in the house
so, with that being said, I was thinking MKV would be the best format to rip them. Plan to use makemkv. So did my first movie and it had HD Audio… so when I ripped it, played on WDTV i could get video, but no sound. So im a little bummed. In my bedroom where I have the only WDTV right now, I dont have a receiver or anything… just WDTV and TV hooked up.
I think in makemkv there was an option to not select HD audio and do DD instead. I tried again choosing BOTH audio options, but still wouldnt work on my tv. so i guess im going to try one more time and choose only DD audio option.
but im concerned that on my other tvs where I do have receivers, the HD audio might work and dont want to be ripping them all in a lesser quality audio.
so what are my options here? what exactly is HD audio anyway? is the DD option still 5.1 surround? is there a way to get this HD audio to work? what if i rip as an ISO instead of a mkv… played around with clownbd to make an ISO and i dont think it even gave me an option to choose another audio, only HDaudio… if i do that, will it play sound on my tv?
