[mythtv-users] Language on ripped dvd

I am confused I was just doing some reading on transcode to see why the 
developers chose it over mencoder and came across the flag that selects the 
audio track to record. Below is an example of using transcode from the 
command line:

transcode -i /space/tng-biggoodbye/vob/004 -w 4357,250,100 -a 1 -b 128,0,0 
-s 3.311 -V -f 25 -B 12,10,8 -R 1 -x vob,null -o /dev/null -y xvidcvs,null

Next is a copy of the audio track that is being used:

-a 1 selects audio track number 1 (starting with 0).

Is it possible that it is just grabbing the wrong audio track? I am thinking 
no because although Ryan you said that once you rip a movie you are stuck 
with that audio track, when I run the vob file from the command line using 
mplayer I can see where it has 3 audio tracks 0, 129, and 128. I am guessing 
that it is choosing 129 b/c it is in front of the 128 and the -aid 128 flag 
would fix this but it didn't. Any ideas I refuse to give up. I was able to 
rip about 70% of my movie collection and I would love to get the rest 
without having to do it by hand and if other people are having this problem 
maybe we can narrow it down to help the developers on this. Are they doing 
much work on this part of Myth? It seems kinda stable compared to other 
parts. Thanks for all the help so far and anyone else chime in if you have 
any ideas, at this point anything is helpful.
