Neither TrueHD or DTS-MA are ever included on DVDs, so your ripping example is nonsensical.

Ripping involves re-encoding, so just reencode the TrueHD audio on your BluRay rip as you do the video. If you believe that lossy DTS is "CD-quality" then the re-encoded-from-losseless audio should also be entirely acceptable.

USPS has given all sorts of indication it cannot get along with UPS/FedEx.

UPS and FexEx drop off truckloads of packages at local post offices for final delivery by USPS every single day. The terms used for this service are SurePost and SmartPost, respectively.

Make it right before you make it faster.
