Works for me as a service. Possibly something in your settings within Windows ?
As far as lossless. AC3, otherwise known as Dolby Digital, is a lossy codec. DTS is in fact a lossy format as well.
This is the best version of PMS I have used as of yet. I simply updated the MPlayer/Mencoder engines, and this version plays damn near everything. Doesn't have the fancy bells and whistles of some of the other builds, and has a few minor
drawbacks, but this version plays movie after movie, with or without subs, MKV's with or without header compression (with the mplayer/mencoder version in my sig), rarely has sync issues.
In the last two days, since re-installing this version, I have yet to have a 'data corrupt', or a file that won't play. If it doesn't play at first, an option in the #transcode# folder works.
And it works great for both my PS3 and my 360, providing 5.1 to it. I wish this version could be tweaked with a few bells and whistles (iTunes to work, some of the presets), but maintain it's playback capabilities, and it would be the sh*t, plain and simple.
