No plans as of yet. What would that be good for?

eac3to v1.22 released

http://madshi.net/eac3to.zip

Code:
* 6.1 -> 7.1 channel doubling was sometimes incorrectly skipped
* OS speaker settings now don't have to be 7.1, anymore
* added detection of 5.1 output when 6.1 was expected
* DTS and DTS-ES files are now forcefully patched to 24 bit by eac3to (workaround for Sonic decoder)
* Sonic Audio Decoder is now always used by default for DTS decoding

I've noticed some strange things with DTS 6.1 tracks:

The Nero decoder always outputs 5.1, but the back channel seems to be mixed into the surround channels!

The Sonic decoder most of the time gives out proper 6.1. However, with I've one sample where it only outputs 5.1, although the track is definitely 6.1 Discrete. Very strange. With this one special track I can see the Nero has the back channel mixed into the surrounds again. With Sonic I only get 5.1 and the back channel is totally missing. Fortunately for 4 other sample Discrete tracks Sonic gives out proper 6.1.

Do i have to set OS speakers to 5.1 to get a 5.1 output, or stereo is just fine?

Stereo should be fine. The OS speaker settings shouldn't matter at all, anymore.

I'm writing a bridge tool between your tool and an EVOB demuxer. That way I could just invoke your tool with demuxed audio streams without storing them as separate files beforehand.

I see. The problem is that eac3to is using DirectShow filters and they want to load a file. So even if I added STDIN support, I'd have to store the files on harddisk, anyway...

No, but for all compressed audio formats. Basically both decoding and encoding only works with files on harddisk. Things eac3to does itself (channel mapping, raw to wav(s) conversion, dts/ac3 core extraction, dialnorm removal, etc) could theoretically be done without hard disk. But the question is whether this all makes sense if only some parts of eac3to would get along without real files.

Install Nero 7.x.x.x properly & register the HDDVD/Blu-Ray Plugin, or get the Sonic Decoders (beware, DRC applied on eac3 tracks) & ac3dts source (the new one, with eac3 support)

-> http://uploaded.to/?id=y73jnw ('dtsac3eac3' source)

@ALL

I am still working on my WiFi remote control system. But will still try and support EAC3toGUI.

From what I can determine, -down6 and +/-100ms are the only options my GUI does NOT currently support. I will try and update EAC3toGUI with the new parameters this weekend.

Before I can update the program, I need someone to explain to me how to implement the +/-100ms command line parameter, i.e., is it +100 for advance and -100 for delay? and can it be any number from 0 to 100ms or is it fixed at 100ms?

Regards,
The_Keymaker

You need to buy the plugin, too, in case you haven't yet. It's not part of the normal Nero package. Once you bought it you'll get an extra serial number for the plugin which you can then feed to the Nero Product Manager (or whatever it was called).

eac3to doesn't work with Nero 8. You need to install Nero 7 if you want to do TrueHD and E-AC3 decoding with eac3to.

Maybe the 2:47 has some extra seconds of silence at the end or beginning of the movie? Don't know...
I'm using it on the demuxed thd.T he flac has about 10 mins extra runtime. The FLAC does not stay in sync, it will keep droping out and then coming back. Its very difficult to tell how far out of sync it is at the end but about 10 mins seems right. With 1.17 it is fine, albeit with the dial norm and thus 24bit.

Is anyone having success with titles such as Superman Returns and V for Vendetta?
