    This weekend, something strangehappened with my AV32DP.

    Playing CDs most of the weekend, when the HDCD logo came on in the display.

    I was playing Nancy Griffiths Clock without hands CD when I first noticed it, so there was nothing special about the CD,

    I tried it on several otheres and it was a random occurrence - sometimes the HDCD logo came on and otheres just the CD source logo.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with the sound by the way.

    Any ideas?

    Some tracks are HDCD encoded others are not. Eric Clapton Cronicles is the usual example, first track HDCD encoded, the rest are not.....
    Of course this assumes the HDCD logo light up for the entire track and doesn't blink on and off during the track...... I assume it does it on the same tracks repeatedly. Many CD's don't mention it contains HDCD......

    You are right Graham, the HDCD logo lights up for the whole track but not all the CD appears to be HDCD encoded - just certain tracks.

    If I take the cd out and then replay it - the same tracks light the logo - I didn't know that certain tracks are HDCD - it certainly doesnt mention it in the slevve notes or on the liner.

    Hope the new job is going well!
