dvd sound problem/?

i recently bought the Criterion DVD of M. Hulot's Holiday.
when i played it through my DVD Rom, the sound would drop out......and it seemed in certain places.
to make sure, i tried it in my parent's DVD player and it played fine.
does anyone have any idea why this would happen?

what's odd is that my Criterion Mon Oncle plays fine. i thought at first it might have something to do with my computer's ability to play DVDs in mono, but this refutes that.

Deep DVD Discount already agreed to take it back, but i hate to waste their time if it has something to do with my computer.

any help would be appreciated.

hmmm, that's interesting. i figured that someone here had DVD/computer knowledge enough to at least have some hair brained idea why it might be doing this

the thing that doesn't make sense is that Mon Oncle works fine.......the only difference is that Mon Oncle is from the OOP, original printing.......and M. Hulot's Holiday is from the newer printing......hmmmmmmumumhum

i had a defective copy of Road to Perdition (released by Dreamworks) that messed up a lot worse on my computer.......perhaps my parents' DVD player reads faster, but i don't know if that's a logical explaination.

Well, I don't have some hair brained idea of why it's doing it, but I've recently discovered, working at blockbuster (sigh), that certain DVDs will not play, or play badly, in certain DVD players. I have a bunch of people coming back saying it won't work well in one DVD player, but fine in others, etc. How fast is your computer and DVD rom drive? Maybe too slow to keep up? Is it set to the right region? I'm just thinking out loud.

The gravedigger strikes again...



I bought this blu ray player off my friend for $10, but when I hook it up to my TV with an HDMI there's no sound. The audio only works through the RCA cables. Whatever dillhole was using it before me must've turned off the HDMI audio output, and now I can't go into the settings because I'm using a universal remote. So, is there any hope for me getting an HD image with decent sound, or should I just be satisfied with what these RCA's are doing? ( which is not too shabby, I must say )

Does it have one of those pinhole buttons on the back to reset it back to factory settings? Otherwise, maybe see if you can order a replacement remote from the manufacturer.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

What is your output device for audio? If you're just playing the sound the tv then RCA cables will do the job fine.

If you have a slightly more sophisticated home theatre system you can hook the audio up separately via optical or coaxial cables.

Tv speakers are really the worst option for audio but if that's all you got don't worry about hdmi not carrying sound. Computer speakers through a 3.5mm jack would be an improvement.

Well, the thing is that no sound works at all when connected by HDMI, even through the RCA. I'm not sure if I could get audio through another device because the HDMI seems to cancel out the signal when it's plugged in. So, I'm sacrificing the 720p image for a 480i one. Pretty annoying since I bought a new cord specifically for this, but considering the price I got it for and that I mostly wanted it to check out some of the special features on my blus, it's no skin off my back.

Have you checked that the TV is set to HDMI? Usually you have a HDMI menu to switch to when one of the outputs is plugged in.

built in DVD player makes LOUD HUMMING SOUND like a back massager that is impossible to ignore.


and if I could just step into my time machine while making this into another thread…


My VCR only shows a scrambled, staticky image that tracking does nothing to help.


Neither of them were doing this last night! We did kind of have a storm and they're both out on the porch, but I don't think that had anything to do with it. For now, I'll just take it as a sign from God to stop wasting my time...
