Is there a way to extract the audio portion of a DVD-A so I can burn to a CD-R.
Nope. This is one of the main reasons behind DVD-A and SACD: copy protection. Anyway, even if you could extract it you'd have to burn it on a DVD because it would be too much information to hold on a CD.
Actually, the copy protection exists only in the digital domain, which is the reason behind the multichannel (analog) outputs on the player and inputs on the receiver. The recording industry wanted protection from people copying the information 'digitally'. There is no reason why you cannot grab the 2ch stereo mix from the analog output and send it to a recording device, or for that matter all 6 channel audio outs to a mixing board and mix down your own 2 channels should you have the time or equipment.
I was kinda wondering the same thing. I would like to be able to listen to my DVD-A's in the car, but I can't. That is one of the main reasons that I prefer SACD's is that most of the time, they have a cd layer that I can play in my car. Ryan
I've copied the two channel tracks from some of my DVD-A discs to minidisc with no problems.
Thanks Guys. I knew there had to be a way. Funny, I have the Denon 2900 and I did not think to re-record from the analod output. Vic
So have I, and the results are spectacular.
correct me if i'm wrong, but can't the content on dvd-a's ALWAYS be played back NON-hirez via your coax or optical connection?
I can play non-copyprotected 96/24 stereo digitally. Any (most) players will pass 44/16, 48/24, dts and DD digitally.
Maybe, or maybe not. If so, it will surely be flagged DO NOT COPY in SCMS so this would only work with a pro CD recorder or a computer.
like philboy and i said. you can play ANY dvd-a as NON-hirez through your digi connection if you set your player up to do it. the NON-hirez is NOT copyright protected, just the hirez.
