    more than likely its playing a dvd-v track, but without the picture, as some discs have this.

    The DVPNS300 definitely does not play DVD-A.

    As MJN says, it's more than likely picking up the regular DVD soundtrack and playing that back - AFAIK any DVD-A disc can be played on any DVD player this way.

    To take advantage of DVD-A you need a built in decoder, and a multi channel output on the player to output the signal - neither of which the NS300 has :)

    A full specification/compatability list for the NS300 can be found here by the way.

    Regular VCD appears to be supported but SVCD is a no go :)

    well it plays through my amp and sounds brilliant and i still get a picture and it also shows me the video footage of the dvd

    i know it doesnt do it exactly as it should but still seems fine to me
