I am attempting to record Blu-Ray quality on a DVD-RW. Now I have done this in the past successfully and it has worked using an m2t to ts file. The high-def video I have been able to get to transfer fine at 720p. However, the audio is indicated by Toast 9 as Dolby Digital 5.1 but when it is actually recorded, on the disc, and played back on my Sony Blu-Ray player it is only in Dolby Digital 2.0. I have successfully done this in the past, however, now it is not working.
The only change is the m2t file source. The oddity is that, in the past, the original m2t file I would edit in MPEG Stream Clip, cutting out the extra content, but MPEG Stream Clip will no longer open the file to edit. So I am now using VLC and using the Export Wizard to stream the video to save it in MPEG TS format and then using Toast Video Player to edit content. The extra content are commercial which are in Dolby 2.0.
Toast 9 recognizes the remaining content as Dolby Digital 5.1 throughout the process so, it would appear anyway that, it should be recording it as such. Like I said, I have done this successfully in the past. Am I overlooking something obvious here or has anyone else had a similar problem?
