    The CD used to do that for me years ago but over listening killed it.

    jonna - I take it you mean a DVD Music Forum other than the Music Forum here ? Most forums that I visit deal with DVD music in the same way - either in the DVD Forum or the Music Forum (?) which confuses the hell out of me (!)
    Anyway I'm glad you liked F/Mac & Tubby Bells but if your really want the pinnacle of sound (IMO of course) get Hell Freezes Over by The Eagles (you need to be DTS compatible if that's an issue) still the best sound I've heard (apart from DVD-A)
    Without knowing your tastes I would also recommend Yes Symphonic (new one DTS & fabulous) & The Corrs Unplugged DD5.1 with magical sound (& vision - if you like attractive Irish types!)
    Cheers - Paul ;)

    Where did you get your copy of above??

    I recently got a copy from ezydvd, it played for about two mins like the talky bit at the front and then died. I am obviously going to send it back but just in case I have anymore trouble would appreciate a heads up.

    This DVD is DTS & PCM Stereo only (no DD5.1)
    When you insert the DVD you should get a menu asking if you want DTS or PCM Stereo
    If you select DTS and your system is not DTS capable after the initial "talkie bit" (which would only be strereo) you would get no sound - as you describe
    Try again and select stereo to see if you get sound from the concert
    If yes then you are either not DTS capable or you have a duff disc
    HTH - Paul ;)
    BTW There is another good Mike Oldfield Concert DVD "Live in Berlin" or "Millenium Bell" it is refered to I believe ...
