AC3Fitler does a lot of things, which part of AC3Filter do you want to replace?

Are you talking about just outputting DD (AC3) via SPDIF from MKV files? If so then the any standard DVD codecs will do the job (PowerDVD, Nvidia, MPC, FFDShow...) and Vista does this as standard.

Why do you want an alternative to AC3Filter?

and what OS/software are you using?
I had problems doing passthru with ac3filter on windows 7 (and mediaportal), i'm sure it must be possible but it was much easier just to switch to ffdshow.

i am assuming ac3-filter is the problem.on some h264 movies my amp reports a -27db dialogue normalisation,and so the volume level drops a lot.
this never happens on discs.
the weird thing is that it happens after having the pc for a few weeks.this is my third one.
i am using vista64 this time and was using vista32 on the earlier 2.
i am not really pc savvy but have friends and family who are and cant get round this.
when it started happening on this machine i tried doing a restore to a point a few days earlier but it did not help.
thanks
