    I posted this in the Home Cinema Forum but on reflection it might be better off here
    "Just received Rick Wakeman Live 2000 discs (DVD & CD in one package - pretty cool?)
    Only one problem the DD5.1 track is missing or corrupt as it will not play on my Pioneer 626 - There is no DD2.0 track listed and the sound on the menu appears to work as do the extra "studio" tracks on the DVD which are in DD2.0
    When I pop Rick in my PC (with DVD) the concert plays fine in what I presume is "downmixed" sound from the DD5.1 track
    This has totally confused me and I would appreciate feedback on what is wrong?
    I presume I need to send the disc back for a replacement?
    Has anyone had this happen B4?
    Is there a way of checking the DVD data on my PC to see if there is a DD5.1 track there?
    TIA - Paul"

    Paul,

    Which DVD player you are using on your PC?

    If it is PowerDVD, than while the disc is playing open the configuration screen and click on Information tab. You will find the audio encoding method there.

    Other playes may have similar screens.

    Cheers.

    Thanx Branxx (!)
    The DVD setup is a Pioneer using a MPEG Card (all the info is at home - sorry to be a bit vague) I'll have a look when I get home ...
    Presuming I can look at the data how would I recognise the audio files ?
    BTW my query has had a response on the Movies Forum from someone who had an identical problem, took the disc back, and is waiting for his replacement disc - So it looks like all (or a batch) have this problem
