Question about Toshiba HD-A20

2 Answers

I just purchased a Toshiba HD A20 from Best Buy but the unit didn't have a user manual

I hooked up my new HD DVD and its not sending a Dolby Digital signal to my receiver, like all my other DVD players.  They automatically sent the correct signal then my Onkyo receiver would show Dolby Digital EX but I get nothing but normal stereo.

Go into the menu options for the player, and switch to Bitstream! Not PCM

I went in to the setup and re-"Initialize"-d under the maintenance menu. Fixed everything (not even an unplug fixed it)

Using NAD t743 with Panasonic DMP-BD55


The reciever you have has 5.1 inputs at the backof it.The only way to get Dolby True HD and DTS HD is to run the 7.1 analog out from the bd55 to the nad. You'll have to leave the 2 rear surround open on the bd55 leaving the remaining 6 connected to the nad. The digital coax and the optical will not transmit the hd data, only the analog out will. Run a hdmi right to your HD tv for picture bypassing your amp. this will workfine and you'll have the audio you want. You,ll have to change the input settings for dvd in your amp to 5.1 to recieve the audio.

Toshiba HD-A30 won't play digital sound with HD DVDs


Try checking your audio output in the setup screen of dvd player. Try setting Digital Out HDMI to Auto, if it isn't already. See if that helps.

No sound


try changing the cable, or use a different source.  It may just be the optics aren't functioning correctly.

Problem with Dolby Digital mode


If it is a new DVD that may be a problem, as signal changes may be frustrating this old machine... but it is likely the cabling from the DVD player to the reciever. Are you on the right channels/settings? is the optical cable and digital cable recieving digital output from your DVD player? Try changing those settings and you should be in good shape Thanks! good luck!
