MKV to MP4 on Mac OS X - Snow Leopard

Hi everyone, there are a number of guides out there for a variety of MKV -> MP4 conversion processes, but none of them seem to work any more.

I'd love to be able to create a workflow to convert h264 + DTS/AC3 mkv to h264 (passthru) + AAC5.1 mp4. Of course you can use mp4box to put AC3s directly into the mp4, but iTunes 9 won't play the sound (even with perian, and a custom-compiled x86_64 a52 plugin). There's also the added problem that you can't have more than one audio track in mp4 (quicktime flavour) unless they're all AAC.

So, if there's a shiny GUI tool for this conversion (no, MKVTools doesn't cope with DTS or transcode to AAC5.1) then please let me know, if not then a suitable workflow for AC3/DTS to AAC5.1?

I've been through the forums and this guide: http://forum.doom9.org/archive/index.php/t-97947.html always gives static-like output and any other guides I've found appear to be out of date.

If anything I learn here leads to a working solution I'll be sure to post it for anyone else to use - I haven't been able to find this info anywhere else!

Thanks in advance!
