I have several MKV files that I am trying to put onto a DVD to play on a player or in an Xbox 360.

However, everytime I convert the MKV files the output file is only encoded in stereo sound. I've tried both MP4 and AVI using Handbrake and buring with Toast Titanium.

Does anyone know where I am going wrong or if I should use another programme. And what's the best format to encode MKV files in?

you want the end file to be encoded with 2ch stereo audio as that is all the xbox can play. As far as I know it will not play ac3, dts etc
