    This is most probably an issue with the player's firmware not supporting the new "header removal compression" feature introduced in mkvtoolnix 4.1.0. See this thread for more, including the fix.

    thank you WDuser, but there is no such disable 'compression' option at the popcorn converter (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif) . I guess now i have to do that the old mkvmerge way. If its not too much asking, would you please to lead me into tutorial that shows how to convert DTS into AC3 using mkvmerge? thanks in advance. beer and cookies for you (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

    mkvmerge cannot convert DTS to AC3 AFAIK. Continue using PopCorn MKV AudioConverter to do the conversion. However, you'll then need to open the MKV in mkvmerge GUI and remux the file, but this time set the audio compression option to "None". Of course it's a real pain, which is why we should all let the authors of mkvtoolnix know (I already did) that they need to change the default setting in the next release of the package.
