Most newer bluray converts are using DTS. I wonder why it took me only 10 minutes to convert standard 1080P DTS to DD5.1? Maybe I'm running QC 9550.

Pit Boss is right; DTS conversion to DD5.1 or AC-3 can be done in a jiffy... i dunno what software the other guy was using or if his configs were wrong.

I am using a Intel C2D 2.2ghz pc but should not be making such a big difference, I guess.  The file that I was converting amounts to 11.5 Gb .  What settings did you use for the conversion ?

To all,

To solve the problem of having no sound on some MKV's, i suggest you update the firmware to 1.01, quick and easy process. Just follow the instruction posted:-

http://www.wdc.com/en/products/wdtv/

File not outputting DTS signal?
This solution is for those who have amps. Get a optical cable, connect it from the WDTV to the amp, switch the audio signal from stereo to digital in SETTINGS, and you will get Dolby, 5.1, DTS or plain PCM signals outputted through your amps.

i am currently loving my WDTV. Just ogling on HD stuffs over and over again.
Rewatching favourites such as Matrix, LoTR is such an experience.

Reubs should get a package going :- BolehVPN + WDTV = HD goodness!

Question. Does unicode and non-english locale subtitles display correctly?

According to the v1.01.01 Release Note, yes it should. I just got my unit and haven't got chance to test it out yet. But looking at the Release Note, an upgrade is a must!  ;)

Version 1.01.02:
Resolved Issues:
• Resolved the issue surrounding updating the firmware from a large (500GB or larger) drive, previously the WDTV™ would not recognize the updated firmware on a large drive
Known Issues:
• When image is rotated 90 degrees there is some elongation in the rotated view
• If the user unsafely removes an HFS+ formatted drive from the media player without using the Eject button, the drive will become read only media

Version 1.01.01:
New Features:
• Added .MKV chapter selection for video playback for MKV with chapter support
• Added .MTS file extension support
• Added .TP file extension support
• Added .TS file extension support
• Added 1080p 24hz support
• Added disk volume name to folder navigation in list mode
• Added EXIF orientation flag functionality for auto picture rotate
• Added file size in filename
• Added jump feature to the remote: While fast forwarding or reversing, if the “Next” or “Prev” buttons are pressed, video will jump 10 minutes in the respective direction
• Added progress indicator for the duration of the FF or REV function
• Added a blinking status LED behavior while drive is mounting; previously the light just stayed on
• Added sequential .M2TS file playback function
• Added additional subtitle support (SMI, SUB, ASS, SSA)
• Added user selectable font size for subtitle support
• Added song title scroll in music playback to prevent truncation
• Added embedded subtitle display in .MKV files
• Added additional subtitle encoding support for the following: Western Europe (ISO), Traditional Chinese (Big5), Simplified Chinese (GB18030), Japanese (Shift-JIS), Korean (EUC-KR), Cyrillic (Windows-1251), Cyrillic (KOI8-R), Greek (ISO); previously only UTF-8 was supported
• Added display sizing menu for photo playback: Fit to Screen, Full Screen, Keep as Original
• Added accelerating scroll speed based on how long the arrow is held down on the remote when navigating folders with a large number of files; previously only one, constant speed was available

Resolved Issues:
• Resolved issue when 2 drives were connected, then one drive was disconnected, the files from the disconnected drive still showed up on the file list but were not playable
• Resolved "repeat one" failure during music playback; previously songs would not repeat
• Resolved artist name truncation issue during music playback
• Resolved issue where WD TV would not turn back on with remote after extended period of inactivity; previously WD TV had to be unplugged and was unrecoverable with the remote
• Resolved image size and position issues during video playback; previously the image displayed did not fill the screen until the picture was zoomed in and then out again

ill answer on behalf of Reubs. :D

You can HDMI and optical Toslink cables in Jalan Pasar (very cheap) if you're in KL. Otherwise, u can get it in any TV and radio shops (electronic shops) like Harvey Norman.
