    When I start up this disc...the menu screen comes up and if I try to access the credits on the menu screen the screen turns green and the disc reloads [​IMG]. I have the new Pioneer 563a and no other problems with any other discs.

    I'll try this when I get home.
    I own the disc, but only heard it on my Panny RP82.
    I just got the 563a but didn't put L.A. Woman in yet.

    Are you saying it doesn't play at all or just when you select the credits?

    The DVD-Audio discs I tried (Tigerlily & Pet Sounds) played perfect in the 563a.

    Steve,

    I never encountered the problem you described with the Doors' LA Woman in any of these players:

    Onkyo DV-S939
    Kenwood DV-5700
    Panasonic RP-91
    Meridian 598DP
    Toshiba SD-5700

    There are probably other players I played this disc on that I don't recall at the moment.

    Regards,

    Everything plays fine.....[​IMG] One thing I've noticed is that when the menu screen 1st appears the credit selection is highlighted but you need to use the cursor to try to access it, that's where my problem is.....

    Steve,

    Yes -- I'm aware of what you're talking about, and I always try out the menu navigation (which is what the credits are)....

    No problems on any of the players I listed above.

    Regards,

    Steve, glad to hear all is well. I've played L.A. Woman on a Technics DVD-A10 and Denon DVD-3800 without incident.

    When I try to play the interviews on Harvest or the DVD-A track on Crosby-Nash's Another Stony Evening on my Toshiba SD 5700, it does the same thing (green screen), and it totally crashes the player, which I then have to reboot.[​IMG]

    The Doors, however, plays perfectly.

    Not the same problem, but...

    I have the 563 also. I don't have the Doors, but the Queensryche DVD-A freezes on the track listing menu screen. If I don't make a selection within two seconds the only thing you can do is hit the play button, which takes you to the top level menu. It worked fine on my previous player, which was DVD-Video only.

    I'm guessing the 563 is a little buggy right now.

    I have been having trouble with the Linkin Park dvda, it starts skipping around track 17 and gets worse and worse so all you hear on track 18 is pops of sound against silence, track 19&20 totally unplayable as they cause the disc to stop. On the stereo tracks they also stop the player. The disc looks fine, just wondering if anyone else has this disc (it's great if you like hardcore/rap) that could confirm correct playback.
