    Have you tried the latest version of MKVExtractGUI, with the proper and latest build of mkvtoolnix installed to the same directory as MKVExtractGUI?

    'file'->'reset'
    half a dozen times

    reload the source,
    half a dozen times.

    until the tracks do show.

    you can also try avimux-gui

    Or you could go and buy the disc instead of downloading it. T2 has been widely available for some time, and comes with both DTS and AC3 EX audio tracks.
    Read my blog here.

    ok..
    after extracting the dts with MKVtools, i used Tranzcode to encode the audio to 6 mono wavs.
    after that i converted the 6 mono wavs to an AC3 file using WAV to AC3 encoder.

    then i usedTMPGenc 3 to merge the AC3 file with the video, but after the output the audio is out of sync.

    suggestions?

    Use popcorn mkv audio converter for DTS to AC3 within an MKV file. Set AC3 to 448kbps for greater DVD player compatibility rather than 640. Output will be a 'new' mkv file with AC3 audio. Popcorn also gives you the option to retain the DTS audio within the file (as an additional audio track) if so desired. Excellent tool in my opinion. Please post back your outcome for other users.

    I had problems streaming MKV files with DTS audio using PS3 Media Server through my PS3. I then came across Popcorn MKV audio converter. I converted a few MKV files with DTS audio. The conversion went fine and I was able to play some and got audio but on some files, i get "data corrupted" status on the PS3. On the PC, i get the following message "TsMuxer.exe has encountered a problem" and sometimes it says "Mencoder.exe has encountered a problem". When that happens, the file that is shown on the PS3 becomes "data corrupted".

    Many thanks if anybody knows a way around this. Best regards,

    Use MkvMerge again loading the video & audio(Ac3) file to make a new Mkv video...

    DaudioK worked for me at first. But just recently, it started getting "runtime error #6 - overflow" errors. So, I tried Xvid4psp5 - but it kept crashing. Popcorn mkv audio converter, however, worked like a Swiss watch. There's some pretty powerful freeware out there, that's for sure.

    Here's a hoot (grin). I recently upgraded my ProCoder version from 2 to 3 ... and now, when I have an MKV file I want to convert to MPEG2, I simply "rename" the MKV extension to AVI. ProCoder 3 recognizes the video AND the DTS audio ... allowing me to convert the DTS audio to AC3 5.1 while the video is converted to MPEG2. And, it all stays in sync.

    Thanks.

    Seems to me that is much easier to open the mkv with
    Pazera Free Audio Extractor and choose whatever conversion
    you need from the output format menu.

  20. The best an better freeware to convert your audio DTS to AC3 is the MKV2AC3. Works totally fine for me. See more here: http://bit.ly/mkv2ac3
