    I think this is amp related rather than DVD player related but apols if I'm wrong.

    My dear old misus wanted Frank Capra's b&w classic "Its a wonderful life" on DVD so I got her a copy. When I played it, the sound was terrible during the opening titles and disappeared completely after that.

    If I turn my TV speakers back on and bypass the amp, I get the sound back. I've got a Tosh SD220E DVD player and a Marantz SR5300 amp and Mission M73 fronts. My amp is connected to my DVD player with a digital co-ax cable. The DVD player is also connected to the TV via a scart. The film is marked Dolby Digital on the case but it won't produce sound using any of the amps sound modes.

    It's only a problem with this particular DVD. Everthing else plays fine. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    set your amp to "auto detect" on the DVD input.

    Thanks but the Marantz does not have an "auto-detect" facility. You have to manually designate an input.
