I’m thinking of upgrading my Home Cinema system from a Pioneer to a Denon but heard that it may not play copies of CDs or DVDs (my Pioneer plays everything ok).

Anyone had any probs playing copies?

Any thoughts much appreciated, cheers.

Welcome to the forum :flower:.

The playability of DVD backup copies in standalone players is mostly dependent on the quality of media, the application used for burning the video files, and, for +R or +RW, whether they’re booktyped to DVD-ROM.

You may read about “this player is better than that one”, etc, but unless the above factors have been taken into account there’s only a few brands of player which seem to be picky about the discs they’ll accept (and actually they’re usually recorders being used to play back).
