    Hiya peeps - I have a Wharfdale DVD player and an excellent bargain it was. Now, my query is this: I have my dvd hooked upto an receiver via optical and my dvds play in glorious DTS/DD5.1 HOWEVER, whenever I burn a CD of MP3s or VCD (using Nero)the audio only plays direct through my television and not through the optical out/digital receiver. I understand that SCART deals with both audio and visual, but y then do my DVDz play through optical out yet these home made CDs dont? I apologise in advance if this is a newbie question, but then, I am a newbie afterall! Thanks in advance for your help guys :)

    It will only play through the tv because its a different audio type. DVD uses ac3 wheras vcd uses Layer-2 44100hz 224kbits/s. DVD's are usually Layer-1 48000hz and up to 448kbits/s. Mp3's use layer 3 44100 or 48000hz up to 320kbit/s.

    Try for mp3, encoding with 48000hz 320 kbits/s I think that could be compatible!
