    In subler if I have multiple audio tracks added (dts, ac3, and ac3 > aac dolby pro logic II) Do I have to check enabled on all of them before encoding?

    Just check one. Otherwise if you attempt to play the file on your Apple TV it will get confused and not know which one to pick.

    Which of the three should I enable? And will the atv know which track to use automatically even if only one specific one is enabled? Right now I am using the atv hooked up to just the tv but soon plan on using optical out to a receiver so that I can get real 5.1 dts or ac3 output.

    My MP4 files have the first track (AAC Stereo) enabled and the second (AC-3 5.1) disabled. My ATV 2 is connected to a receiver and it switches to the surround sound track automatically.

    In Subler, be sure to select each track and make sure both audio tracks belong to "Alternate Track One."

    I know it's not necessary, but I wonder if it's still a good idea. The Subler FAQ has the following about alternate groups:

    Given the Apple TVs reliance on iTunes and properly configured MP4s, the suggestions from the Subler developer might be worth following.
