First off, thanks, and much appreciation to the community here for helping me with my ongoing HTPC problems. I believe it's the same few people again and again that have provided the solutions I've needed.
So in relation to my previous thread about DTS-MA not bitsreaming properly, I have discovered another problem.
I have a lot of videos with 5.1 AAC, and before I would use FFDShow's encode mode so the AVR picks it up as DD 5.1, all was well.
Now that I have switched to LAV Filters to fix the DTS-MA thing, it appears LAV does not have an encode mode like FFDShow for my AAC tracks.
I was experimenting with MPC-HC and how it prefers or blocks certain filters from being used.
Is there a way to only use FFDShow for a video with an AAC track that needs the "encode mode" feature, AND keep LAV filters active for everything else? Like so it just autoloads what it needs?
I have a feeling it has something to do with merits in the External Filters feature of MPC-HC, but I have no idea what I'm doing with that.
To get AC3 encoding it to work, I need to block LAV filter, and prefer FFDShow. To get DTS-MA working, I need to prefer LAV filter, and block FFDShow. I'd like to not have to do that every time I watch a video.
Any insight on this? Thanks again.

To change the merit use directshow file manager (google it)
prefered = 00800000
unlikely (low merit)= 00400000
never use= 00200000
So let's say you set all your codecs/filters with a "normal" merit and one only as a "prefered" merit, windows will look for this codec/filter first
Then in the ffdshow audio panel in Profiles/Preset you can create conditions (click on "preset autoload conditions") you'll see many options
