    CloneDVD2 & Talladega Nights

    Using AnyDVD V. and CloneDVD2 I appear to make successful backups of Talladega Nights, 2006 release, Unrated version, Region 1, U.S.

    However the backups are rendered with the Director's comments activated, and they cannot be switched off in the DVD's customary Special Features menu. The "off" selection appears to be accepted, but the commentary always accompanies playback.

    I have read other posts on SlySoft where users have reported no problems backing up this Talladega DVD, but I cannot figure how to deny the Director's audio.

    There is no separate Director's audio track, or I would deselect it.

    I have rendered the Audio Streams output two ways: with English Dolby AC-3/6, or with English Dolby AC-3/2, but both yield the forced commentary. I have also toggled the Stream preferences from 2 to 6 channels, but neither yields a soundtrack without the Director babbling.

    Suggestions, please.

    1. visit

    2. there's a new version of Anydvd available:

    3. Keep in mind with some movies, you can't default to the proper audio channel without using the remote for your standalone dvd player--unless you include the menus (and I don't know if this is one example)

    Updating to AnyDVD V. solved the problem. This version automatically detected the correct default audio Stream preferences in CloneDVD2, which were not 2 and not 6 channels; in fact neither needed to be selected to eliminate the forced Director's commentary. Deselecting both was one option I had not tried.
    Regardless, with AnyDVD installed, CloneDVD2 then sensed the requisite menu structure and left them both unchecked without my intervention.

    Also, the Director's Commentary link:

    ...which you suggested will be useful in similar situations.
