    The Toshiba SD4800 came with a sampler DVD-Audio disc. However, I have been unable to get it to play any of the sample tracks. All I get is a repeat play of a 2-minute video introduction to DVD-Audio.

    Can someone else with this same DVD player comment on whether or not they had the same problem with the sampler disc ??? I am just not sure now if my player is defective or the disc is defective. I am also wondering if I actually need to have the 5.1 cables to get DVD-Audio sound ??? I only have an optical connection, but I thought I read somewhere that the 5.1 cables are required for DVD-Audio playback (but I can't imagine why the sound wouldn't just go through the optical cable).

    DVD-A is only output on the 5.1 analog outputs. You must connect these to your receiver's 5.1 input to hear the DVD-A disc.

    Thanks Andrew,

    Do you think the DVD player is smart enough to know that I don't have the 5.1 analog connections, and this is the reason I can't even get a menu of the audio tracks on the sampler disc ???

    Sean, most Receiver's require you to select the 5.1 inputs manually. Also,not only do you have to hook up the analog cables, you also have to change the Toshiba'a default setting to DVD-Audio, and then when you want to switch to DVD-Video you have to do everything all over again. What a bother!
