I am new to this forum and relatively new to SACD/DVD-Audio, so please be gentle!
I have a problem with the playback of some DVD-Audio discs.
Neil Young HARVEST: both sound tracks - 1) PPCM 192kHz 24bit 2/0 ch and 2) 96kHz 24bit 3/2.1 ch play perfectly okay on the DVD AUDIO layer
Billy Cobham SPECTRUM: both sound tracks - 1) PPCM PPCM 96kHz 24bit 2/0 ch and 2) 96kHz 24bit 3/2.1 ch play perfectly okay on the DVD AUDIO layer
Talking Heads FEAR OF MUSIC: No sound at all from the DVD-AUDIO layer - even though the sampling rate etc is the same as the Billy Cobham disc above. If I change to the DVD-Video layer (48kHz 24 bit 3/2.1 ch or 2/0 ch), then I can hear the Dolby Digital sound encoded on the video layer, as one would expect. But, why no sound from the DVD-Audio layer?
I also have the same problem with Neil Young's ON THE BEACH and AMERICAN STARS 'N' BARS and even T-Rex's ELECTRIC WARRIOR. All have variations of 192kHz or 98kHz 24 bit 3/2.1 ch or 2/0 ch on the DVD-Audio layer, but I get no sound at all. Only sound from the DVD-Video layer (48kHz 24 bit 3/2.1 ch or 2/0 ch).
Player: PIONEER DV-565A. Decoder: YAMAHA RX-V540RDS
Are the newer DVD-Audio discs pressed in 2004 or later encoded in a different manner than the older ones pressed in 2001?
Many thanks in advance,
