Great - thank you!  :-)

I find this very important. Btw, Does your encoder support
TrueHD encoding, too?

As far as I can see, the most useful purpose of your encoder
will be to create Blu-Ray compatible transport streams with
multichannel TrueHD tracks. Currently PCM (= wasting a lot
of space) is the only solution in this situation for people who
want to avoid using lossy compression.

BTW, compression efficiency should be a lot higher for
multi channel tracks. It should be around 3:1 for 16bit tracks
and about 2:1 for 24bit tracks...

Regards, madshi.
