Hmmm. Perplexing issue here that I thought would be much easier than it is (or at least appears to be).
I have several live music DVDs with HD audio in 5.1 (usually DTS). Is there a way I can keep the higher bit rate but downmix to 2.0 to store as a .flac or apple lossless and play through a normal stereo?
The closest I’ve got so far is getting the DTS track out as a .mka, but I’m having no luck finding software that will downmix this and convert it to .flac (or even .wav).
Actually, scratch that – it doesn’t seem to be quite doing it right. The timing’s all to pot i.e. it thinks a 90 min concert is only 4 minutes, and you can’t skip along i.e. move the progress bar and it just dumps you back to the start. And it crashes in anything other than vlc.
