oh oops, thx for pointing this out, I edited my original post. put this in startmux.cmd instead:

ren *.hevc layer1.hevc
ren 0*.hevc layer2.hevc
ren *.ac3 audio.ac3
mp4muxer_64bits.exe --dv-profile 7 --input-file baselayer.hevc --input-file dvlayer.hevc --input-file audio.eac3 --media-lang eng --output-file movie.mp4
Not working because it's still looking for baselayer.hevc and dvlayer.hevc, also --input-file audio.eac3 should be ac3, not eac3. I don't think the problem is with the name of files. I named them 1, 2 and 3. I used this line and still produce the same output.

mp4muxer_64bits.exe --dv-profile 7 --input-file 1.hevc --input-file 2.hevc --input-file 3.ac3 --media-lang eng --output-file movie.mp4

edit again. tired. anyway, as long as the baselayer (largest hevc) is the first input, the dvlayer (smaller hevc) is the second input, and audio is third, it should work just fine. perhaps try a different movie, or demux your hevc's again? :/

Try this... I set a size of 1.9 GB for the main 4k track and anything less for the Dolby Vision track...

Went ahead and tried remuxing with files from RPO and it started fine, however I kept getting a repeated error of "lost dd sync. resync" Is there any reason that you all can think of as to why or what it even means?

I don't know, but I had some issues like this in the past too

heh alright then. yea for sure I can help, XMedia Recode works well. like I said the eac3 file I create from hd-audio has 1536kbps vs the196kbps ac3 file. that's a huge difference :) demux the hd-audio track, let's use dts-hd for example, in TSMuxer (don't select down-convert) which spits out a .dts file (you've obviously done this part already). then add the dts file into XMedia Recode, and then on the preset pull down choose custom and find e-ac3 from the big list. then on the pulldown that says stereo choose 5.1 (front left, front right, center, side left, side right (cuz rear left and rear right is for 7.1), I believe it's the 2nd from the bottom. then under bitrate pulldown choose the largest one at the end (1536kbps), then click add to queue and hit encode. it'll produce a new dts file but this time it has the original dts track, and the new dd+ eac3 track you created. add this new dts file back into tsmuxer and demux one last time. it will split them apart and you'll get an ac3 file, which when you check the media info will show dd+ eac3 1536kbps that plays great.
I finally got a chance to try this, but it's still not working. It does work for DTS just fine, but both TrueHD files I've tried it outputs a 60kb file with nothing. I tried both Justice League and Spider-Man Homecoming. Maybe I'm not demuxing them correctly, but I've tried from both eac3to and tsmuxer, and I get a 3-5GB file, but I don't have any way to test them.

have you tested the forfiles script?

I actually started with forfiles, it kept failing, then noticed @fsize only works up to 2gb, after that it does nothing :( and both layers are above 2gb so I had to get creative; I made it rename all hevc files to layer1, which then starts at the largest one (seems to so far at least) and renames it, then goes on to do any others but can't cuz layer1 (obviously) already exists now. so then it renames any hevc file starting with 00 (the only other hevc left - they always start with 00something) to layer2. then it renames the ac3 file, then runs mp4muxer off all that. and you can just save it to a .cmd file, doesn't have to be .bat

that is definitely strange. I've done so many, but I'll do a TrueHD track and we can compare mediainfos, I think your demuxing might be buggy..

Mediainfo shows TrueHD AC3 on them, but it shows something like a 19 hour run time, I think because it has a variable bit rate between 448 and 6000-8000, depending on the movie. If you have a tip on demuxing the TrueHD properly I'm all ears. I just run the standard demux and it pops out all the different files.

It was a issue with the audio. I didn't convert it from the Atmos to ac3. Extracted the core and it worked fine.

Well, the file wasn't able to be played on my Vizio TV but I think it might of been user error.

Has anyone had any issues with playing the files through the native video app on a Vizio TV? I have a Vizio e55-f1 from last year and I get a video not supported when trying to play off the HDD. Plex only grabs the HDR10 stream and not the Vision. Apple TV is showing green screen but TV recognizes it as Dolby Vision.

Check the firmware on the TV to make sure it's current: https://support.vizio.com/s/firmware-se ... uage=en_US

It's most likely the TV. Many of the TV's other than LG have had issues regardless of what the manufacturer has claimed. The Xbox One X is another sorrowful example of this.

no worries :) yea, PowerShell is definitely the most accurate way to go. I'd probably rename the hevc's to base-layer and enhancement-layer accordingly and ac3 to audio.ac3 since we're being proper. also, if you use this to code in the .cmd batch file instead, you won't have to enable all powershells on your system:

@ECHO OFF

Has anyone had any issues with playing the files through the native video app on a Vizio TV? I have a Vizio e55-f1 from last year and I get a video not supported when trying to play off the HDD. Plex only grabs the HDR10 stream and not the Vision. Apple TV is showing green screen but TV recognizes it as Dolby Vision.

Here is the MediaInfo of the file:

your dv mp4 looks to have been converted properly. It seems to be a Vizio issue with certain models, particularly the f1's (latest) as the e0's work fine. the pq65-f1 doesn't trigger dv, yet the m65-e0 works perfectly. Vizio tech support is working on it, as they are able to recreate the issue now, so I'll let you know when I get an update. however, for less than $200, we hooked up a Sony x700 uhd bd player to the pq65-f1 and it played both .mp4 in DV as well as the large .m2ts file (from the bdmv/streams folder of your backed up uhd disc) in DV. The .m2ts is better for sound as you get full hd-audio + atmos (with a 2nd hdmi out port for legacy AVRs), where as the .mp4 is lossy eac3 audio at best and requires demuxing / converting / remuxing. 3 confirmed Cinavia affected movies were tested using both formats from usb and dlna, and neither of them had playback stopped either, so hopefully that's not an issue (more testing is still required) :D
