If I try to play the files I capture from TV3 (AC3) using PowerDVD8 (have the right codecs loaded) I get no audio but interestingly if I play the TV1 captures with the AAC-HE audio, it's fine.  I have AC3 filter installed but I would have thought PDVD8 would use an internal AC3 codec.

Anybody with any ideas why I am not getting audio?

Thanks

I have that. In fact PDVD8 plays DVD's fine with AC3 audio or even ripped vob files. It's just the HD AC3 broadcasts it won't play. VLC plays them but since it doesn't have the Cyberlink codec it performs very poorly

So your playing them through PowerDVD its self? You wont be able to select the AC3 filter codec in PowerDVD im assuming. I use Mediaportal and can use PowerDVD8 codec for the video and AC3 filter for the audio. Not sure what other option besides finding a player that will let you choose what codecs you want to use manually.

Not sure if it's a codec issue or an inability to select an alternate track. PDVD8 can play the captures which have AAC-HE audio as the primary track. But the TV3 broadcasts seem to have AC-3 as a secondary track, The PCH can play those, but PDVD8 doesn't seem to be able to pick this track
