Windows 7: Handbrake, AC3 Passthru vs. AC3 (ffmpeg) 6 channel discrete.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Because its AC3 inside a MP4 container. Since its not officially supported, some players will have issues. Especially the MS default splitters.

If you use something like Haali or Gabest Splitters, it should play without issue.

Looks like I am just going to have to use .vob and bitstream to my receiver since I want my 7.1 to work correctly. I am going to need a biger hard drive than 2tb's though.

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1

I have used a WDTV Live connected through an AV receiver for large large screen TV viewing. I generally use AC3 or DTS passthru in an MKV container. It can be networked for streaming from your PC or simply connected to a portable HDD. Also it's cheap.
