I am new to this and have a few question I am hoping someone can help me out with. I have a few .mkv files that I want to convert and burn onto bluray (25g) disks to play in my blu ray player. Right now I have used TXmuxer which works well. It creates the BDMV and Certificate folders then I burn them to BD with IMGBurn. My question is from what I have been reading TXmuxer works well but you don't get the full quality. I have used a few other program to create the BDMV and Certificate folders so I can burn them but it seem like it take like about 6 hours for the process to complete. I am trying to get the highest quality though, should I keep using txmuser which only takes a few minutes or is it better to use the other programs? I also have DVDFab which have a bluray ripper but it takes about 6 hours.

Here is some info about one of the mkv's i have
VIDEO CODEC...: x264, 2pass, L4.1
FRAMERATE.....: 23.976 fps
RESOLUTION....: 1920x800 (2.40:1)
AUDIO1........: English AC3 5.1 @ 640 kbps
AUDIO2........: AAC 2.0 q=0.3 @ 75kbps
Probably best to get a standalone that will play MKVs with non-compliant resolutions, or a media player like the WD player. Or just buy the Blu-Rays.
If you insist on going through with your plan (and there will be unavoidable quality loss with each re-encode), use AVCHDCoder. It will accept odd resolutions and output compliant BD structure ready to burn to BD25. Whatever you're using to "burn" these videos (you don't say, is it a secret?) is obviously re-encoding them if it's taking six hours. And DVDFab is a fine decrypter, but its re-encoding is poor quality. Notice that your video was encoded with the x264 encoder, which is what AVCHDCoder uses.
BTW tsMuxer does *not* re-encode, it just muxes (multiplexes) the streams. That would be ideal if your videos were compliant, but they aren't, at least the example you posted.
Good luck.Pull! Bang! Darn!
TsMuxer? TsMuxer doesn't reencode, it just takes the video out of the MKV container and puts it in an M2TS container. Like taking a cake out of one box and putting it in another box, the cake is unchanged. So that is the highest quality you will ever get from that MKV file. Any re-encoding (eg. to make it a Blu-ray compatible frame size) will only decrease the quality.

Standard Definition Video
edit - if you have a large collection of non compliant material I would do what fritzi93 suggested and get a settop media player that can play non standard resolution material. That way you just load the file as it is and play with out any other hassles.
If its only a handful of videos that are non-standard than reencoding those should not be much of a hassle if you take the time to do it and you'll be done.Donatello - The Shredder? Michelangelo - Maybe all that hardware is for making coleslaw?
