Question about Toshiba HD-A20
I had this problem (no audio on DVDs, audio OK on CDs). Got worse over time. It seems that to fix it you need to reset the player. You can't do this by using the ON/OFF button, because when you turn it off, it just goes into standby. You have to unplug the player and leave it unplugged for a while. I'm not sure of the time--I had mine unplugged for 8 hours today, and when I plugged it back in, it worked find. I just leave it on once it starts working. That way I don't have to fiddle with it until there is a power failure! Toshiba also has a new firmware upgrade (V4), which they told me might help the problem, but I haven't tried it yet.

I am having the same problem as well. Have tried different cables and every conceivable setting on reciever and on HD-DVD. I know my receiver supports DTS and Dolby. 'Planet Earth' played just fine three months ago when I got the player, and with no changes to the settings, the same discs no longer have any sound.
However, standard DVDs play perfectly with the same cables so it is not the receiver or cables or settings. It can only be the player.

Just throw the freeking thing in the garbage. I purchased mine a month before they shot down HD DVD. I purchased a ton of HD movies on Ebay since I paid for the player. No audio....Same issues. I am an electronics technician by trade. I don't know the computer side though. This is a hardware issue and this thing is a piece of ****. I have tried analog outputs, hdmi, optic, and none work. Shame on Toshiba. They knew when they started selling these pieces of **** that Bluray was going to be the format of choice and thats why they wer only $400.....The worst money I ever spent. Now I have a bunch of HDDVD's that I can't play. Double fucked. I would love the thing if I was deaf. Great pic. ******** toshiba!
