    I've recently added a Pioneer 575 DVD Player to my system and connected it to my Song DBR830 amp via optical and 6 channel analog (phonos), for the first time.

    Ive also got a Panasonic DMR100 DVD recorder connected via optical only.

    I've only got 5 x DVDAs so far but three of them will NOT play on the E100 in standard 5.1, only 2 ch PCM.
    The other two, which coincidentally are both Queen, will play fine in standard 5.1. They are both 96/24 if this has anything to do with it.

    I understand that on the Pioneer that the optical will be disabled (as 6 channel analog is connected) when playing DVDAs, but it also seems to be disabling it on the Panasonic, but not on all discs :confused:

    Any ideas?

    The DMR100 is only 2 channel for DVD Audio.

    But the other DVDAs also have standard DTS (and DD 5.1) mixes (e.g. REM - AFTP and Eagles - HC) like Queen but it won't let me access them, only their 2 channel PCM mixes.
