In the Vegas pro9 timeline the audio is perfect... after I render and import the timeline in DVDA the audio only comes from the right side. Any suggestions?

Hi, I have a similar problem but on the Bluray disc - did you find any solution?

You can't use the STUDIO encoder for Blu Ray. You must use the PRO encoder.

I am running Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10 Production Suite and am experiencing the same problem. Has anyone found a solution for this?

Rob, are you part of Sony Tech Support? I am experiencing the same problem. I'd hate this to be the final answer. I purposely spent hundreds, if not close to a thousand dollars to burn my own Blu Rays with 5.1 audio... The software, burner, camera(s), Blu Ray disks, etc.... It said on the box for Platinum 10.0 that it can Burn Blu Rays and support 5.1 Audio. Now, you are saying it doesn't?

Yup, my background audio is slightly panned to the right after rendering to 5.1 ac3, everything else such as voice comes as normal, what's going on???

Do you listen to a 5.1 output or to the stereo downmix which will be automatically done if no adequate sound card (with 6 discrete output channels) is used?

If you listen to a stereo output you will probably hear the Lt/Rt downmix where a phase shifted signal from the surround channels will be added to left and right (in different ways). Dependend on the signals in your 5.1 signal this can erase portions of a signal of a certain channel.

Your 5.1 signal will be fine then anyway.

To overcome the downmix problem (which actually is not a bug) you should either modify your 5.1 mix with signals in the surrounds which would not affect the front channels in the way it happens. Or you can manually downmix to Lo/Ro instead (deselect the phase shift and set the advanced bit stream to "prefer Lo/Ro mix").
