DVD-Audio Question/ Problem...help?! (mac) 2010-09-04 18:54:49 Hello to all that read this, I'm new to the site and I joined because I am having an issue (or at least I think so) when I create DVD-Audio discs from DVD-Video discs with 5.1 mixes of a band's album (in my case Opeth). I will explain my process and then share the problem. Process:1.Rip DVD-video disc (Opeth albums with 5.1 mixes) but 5.1 ac3 only, no video, dts, or stereo. I rip with OSEx and do the necessary things to extract only the 5.1 AC3.2. Convert 5.1 AC3 using a52decx to (Dolby) wav..(the question I have relates to this)3. Author DVD-A and create .iso with the wav files using DVD-Audiofile4. Burn iso5. Play in my DVD-A playerI decided to look at the info on my .wav files and it says it only has 2 channels....which is stereo (obviously). When I play them on my DVD-A player, I feel like it should sound a little better. The output options on a52decx are stereo, dolby, individual, (stereo) wav, and (dolby) wav. I chose dolby wav thinking it would maintain the multiple channels. Did I do something wrong? Should I be using a different conversion or ripping software?I can't author a DVD-A with AC3 files using DVD-Audiofile. Is that how it should be? Can someone show me a process that keeps the 5.1? Again, I'm on a mac. I can run windows 7 on my mac, but that is a last resort. Thank you in advance.
