I’ve just built an HTPC and my girlfriend and I are definitely not happy with how loud the DVD player is while playing movies.
It was REALLY loud… like a jet engine before I plunked down the $44 for AnyDVD to quiet it down. Now it is more quiet but still audible… even while playing movies… which suprises me. We never had noise like this with my set top DVD player (which by coincidence is/was a Pioneer).
I am really suprised how loud it is when playing movies… and when I skip chapters it winds up loud again and takes a few minutes to wind down a little.
Is there a firmware change I can make or something? AnyDVD is sort of helping but its still loud. I would appreciate any help. I’ve tried doing some searching and learning… but you guys here speak a whole different language.
