Recently, my S55 started having problems playing certain dvd’s burned with Nero Vision.
I thought the problem was with Nero, but now I’m not so sure as I never changed any Nero settings.
Basically, on dvd’s made from avi’s, etc, I noticed some of them had no body to the sound. Very tinny, like missing a channel with all the mid-range tones.
After trying to burn new copies of the materials, playing with different audio settings, I decided to go back and try to play older recorded material.
They also had the problem…
So then I started messing with the audio settings in the dvd player. No help.
Finally, just to check, I put a commercial dvd in, and the menu audio was tinny, but when I jumped to the movie, the sound there was fine.
Went back to the old recorded dvd, it sounded good.
put in one of the new recorded dvd’s… sound went tinny again. throw in old recorded, sound stays tinny.
I don’t know what’s wrong with the newer recordings, and how they could be screwing up the player’s audio like this… but it also seems the player should be able to recover from this issue.
Any ideas? I’ve tried searching, but I’m not hitting with the terms I’m trying to use.
