Wait that's a good idea though. What about the following workflow:

1) Create MKV from disc with MakeMKV
2) Extract the ATMOS track from resulting MKV with ffmpeg
3) Add MKV to TSMuxer
4) Add extracted ATMOS track from ffmpeg
5) Mux
6) Profit?!
The extracted atmos track from mkv with ffmpeg would be without an ac3 core so tsmuxer still wouldn't recognize it. You can simply use eac3to, though, instead of ffmpeg to extract the atmos track into thd+ac3 format and those steps would then work.

I'll have to try that. This would save the step of having to rip the whole disc. If you can work just from the MKV then it work be much quicker. Thanks for that idea!

Or picking up a 2019 Shield and getting both! :D
you make it sound so easy :lol: I've been waiting 6+ weeks and there are still none available, in Canada at least, unless you want to spend 400+ on eBay..
I see it on the Canadian Best Buy site, the Web code is 14276266 (I'd add the link, but I'm not sure if that's allowed here).

that's the wrong one. 14276267 is the one to get.

I thought eac3to can extract the audio from the MKV? That was the 2nd workflow that was mentioned here:

https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic ... =15#p87830

1. Use MakeMKV
2. Use eac3to to get the audio
3. Remux using tsmuxer

And done.

Yea I just hadn't tried it yet. I'm re-ripping all my DV titles right now and the last two were DTS:X so I was able to directly remux those in tsmuxer. The one I'm ripping right now is another ATMOS track so I'll be trying the extract from eac3to and adding it through tsmuxer.

Correct me if I'm mistaken here, but, that's not the same thing. MakeMKV already puts the THD/ac3 interleaved audio track in the MKV, tsmuxer just doesn't recognize it in the MKV container. So ideally, they'd fix the ability for tsmuxer to use the track already within the MKV container and we'd be good to go.
it's not that easy and cannot be done without breaking tsmuxer the developers said. The solution they are working on will be as good, who cares about the ac3 core

I absolutely couldn't care less about the AC3 core so if what they're working on will work and we can drop an MKV made by MakeMKV into it and remux it into a TS, I'm all good!

For those that are looking to make this work in the easiest way possible:

1) Rip to MKV with MakeMKV
2) eac3to titlename.mkv 2: titlename.thd+ac3
Note: titlename should be replaced with the actual name of the MKV
3) Add the MKV and the thd+ac3 track to TSMuxer
4) Remux to TS

I've done this to a few of them. Currently watching Ready Player One on my SHIELD Pro 2019 in Plex as we speak. This is fantastic.

Thanks for the command line for eac3to. Saves me the trouble of looking it up? Have you tried playing it in Kodi? I'd rather not have to use Plex as well.

Kodi does not play DV right now, need to use Plex on the shield.

I thought Kodi had a beta for DV support on the SHIELD? I haven't tried it, no. Personally I love plex and have it set up really well on my LAN with the NAS.

Thank you! Just to add to this, MakeMKV needs to be 1.15.1, eac3to I believe any of the latest versions will work.. But I think someone here just said that TSMuxer needs to be one of the nightly builds? The latest stable doesn't work?

I’ve been holding off until this was simple and now seems like the right time. Thanks. What is the workflow for DTS:X tracks?

Even simpler! Throw the MKV in TSMuxer and remux it. Done!
