    I just picked up this progressive DVD player ($169 Shoppersadventure)and I am in the middle of testing it. Nice unit over all. But Toshiba has a bunch of disclaimers on the box, warning that not every CD-R will be read. Sure enough, it has to be 650 MB disc with ISO formatting and 8 character file names :-( Even then, 3/120 MP3 files I tested come out as garbage sound. Does anyone know what is the issue with decoding here?
    I still have to test VCD playing (i have to burn VCD disks in ISO format).
    Also, being new to home theater, i am not sure on subwoofer frequency cut-off. My Sony SA-WM40 sounds nice with music with cut-of adjusted 50-75 Hz. Above 100 Hz, it produces junky, boomy sound. The manual states that cut-of has to cranked all the way up for Digital Dolby. Why is this? Who knows what bandwidth is in the 0.1 channel?
    Thanks,

    As for the frequency range of the .1 channel:
    DTS: full range (but usually limited by the source material).
    Dolby Digital: 120 Hz and below, I believe. Again, it depends on how the LFE channel is utilized by the sound mixer.
