Hope someone can shed some light on this problem.
I am ripping Blu-ray tracks with Makemkv, no problem - the resultant mkv file on my HD plays fine in VLC. I then re-encode using Handbrake, (High Profile Preset, DTS pass-through, to make a smaller mkv). This mkv is around 5-6 Gb depending on the running time for the film. I then want to make a M2TS file to play on the PS3. I have tried TSMuxeR and mkv2vob, and TSmuxeR errors, while mkv2vob will produce a file, but it is only 1/2 to 2/3 of the film! (The Prestige is a 2hr film, but I only got 1-20, and The Untouchables is over 2hrs and I get just over 1hr.
I haven't used any setting to split files to FAT32 or USB media, so I don't know why I only get part of the film. The mkv file encoded by Handbrake (5-6GB) plays in its entirety in VLC on my Mac (although it doesn't play properly in VLC on Win 7).
I have tried multiAVCHD too, and that errors just like TSmuxeR. Is it Handbrake making faulty mkv files? Please any suggestions welcomed.
Thanks in advance

I think it may have been a problem with makemkv on the Mac. I re-ripped the movie on Win7 (also with makemkv) and used multiAVCHD, and it seemed to work. It is also faster encoding than Handbrake (similar 7000 bitrate for DVD-DL, 6 hours for multiAVCHD, 14 hours for Handbrake!!!)
I couldn't get ripbot to work. (But that may have been using the faulty Mac mkv file!)
Thanks for your suggestions.
Faster encode = worse quality. Nothing is for free.
