    Okay, I don't know what's happening, but I can't choose my Audio track on my Apple TV 3. I have 4 tracks I should be able to choose from, but when I hold down the Menu button I get the "Subtitle" choice (none available, which is correct) and I'm unable to go to the "Audio" choice.

    When playing in iTunes on my iMac I can select my the audio track, but it's also defaulting to the commentary track rather than the usual.

    I've tried to reformat the M4V file in Subler and nothing works.

    Please help. I'm incredibly frustrated and I can't think straight any longer.

    How does your file look like in Subler?
    Which tracks are there?
    Which ones are selected, which ones unselected?
    A screenshot would help.

    Your wish is my command:

    Originally, the file showed track 2 selected. I changed it to track 4 last time. In both cases, still playing the same audio track.

    I think you can't have 2 AC3 tracks in same language.
    How did that come to be?
    If the AC3 2.0 is the duplicate of AAC commentary track, then just remove it from the file.

    I ended up just stripping out all the non-film-soundtrack tracks (commentary, et al). Thank you, that worked.

    Keeping a stereo AAC commentary track most def works for me.
