[QUOTE=SeÃ¡n;2301069]Could you check what sound tracks the DVD contains? For example, some DVDs have Dolby Digital and DTS sound tracks. Most DVD players will only decode Dolby Digital sound track, but when connected to a digital amplifier that supports DTS (Digital Theatre Sound) decoding, it will pass on the DTS bitstream to the amplifier to decode. Another possiblity is that the amplifier output is not set up right.
Assuming your using a digital amplifier (using coaxial or optical output), to start with, try choosing between the different outputs to see if any help, e.g. try choosing between PCM and Bit Stream.
If the audio output mode is fine, try selecting a different soundtrack on the affected player with this DVD. If there are two soundtracks and one soundtrack track plays fine, then it’s possibly a problem with the DVD’s DTS soundtrack. In this case, try another DVD with a DTS soundtrack and see if it gives a problem with its DTS soundtrack. If both DVDs give problems with only the DTS soundtrack, then it may be a problem with the amplifier itself decoding the soundtrack.
If you’re getting crackled sound no matter what DVD and soundtrack you play, try checking the connection between the amplifier and DVD player. If you’re using a digital coaxial connection between the the DVD player and amplifier, try repositioning the cable to make sure it is not picking up interference. For example, a portable phone base next to the cable can cause problems. Finally, try switching around this DVD player with another and connect it to the amplifier. If the sound still crackles, then it’s a problem with the amplifier or cable.[/QUOTE]
I opened the DVD in DVD Shrink so it would tell me the audio track.
It says it is “MPEG-1 2-ch English”.
I have no problems with any other DVD I have…
Does this tell you anything ?
PS - oh yeah I do have a digital cable connecting my DVD player to my surround theatre.
