    Hi,

    I'm trying to convert a mkv file to a dvd but I want the audio to stay surround.
    All the converters I tried made it in to 2.1 sound.
    Its a .264 file... I allready demuxed the mkv to 3 files .264 .dts and .sup(subtitles arent needed).

    Can anyone help me?
    I'm trying AVStoDVD atm but not sure it this works..

    Oh now I see similair threads.. http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/286449-DVD-to-MKV-while-keeping-DTS-and-AC3
    Trying http://www.videohelp.com/tools/AutoMKV

    I did use the search but this didnt come up.

    AVStoDVD should work if the box marked Keep DVD compliant Audio is ticked, except if the DTS audio comes from a BluRay DTS HD sound track. This apparently has some issues at the moment, but will be fixed in a future release.

    That said, depending on the film, there may be only 2.1 audio, even in a DTS track. The Criterion release of Sanjuro has DTS audio that is 2.1. MediaInfo can confirm this.

    For DVD I would suggest converting the DTS to AC3 448 kbps if only to get more space for the video, unless you are converting fopr dual layer.

    It could be exactly what guns1inger was saying: a "problematic" DTS track may lead to error like yours (track is demuxed, probably with errors, but MuxMan, the authoring software, does not accept it).

    Two possibilities: download latest AVStoDVD 2.3.0 Alpha (which has a better control on DTS tracks) or force AVStoDVD to re-encode it to AC3 (which is what new Alpha does if it gets errors during DTS demuxing step).

    I would start by simplifying the file name. Get rid of all the spaces, periods etc. Call it movie.mkv, then try again.
    Read my blog here.

    Have you tried to use the 'Preview Clip' feature before start encoding? Any errors messages?

    That's very strange, because Spline64Resize() is a standard AviSynth 2.5.8 function. Try to re-install AviSynth. If it doesn't work, post here the c:\users\laures\appdate\localtem\avisyntp.avs file.
