Sorry, I looked for a better place to put this but didn't see one.

I borrowed a copy of The Witches of Eastwick on DVD from my library.

Now, please tell me if I am an idiot here.

I put the DVD in my player and the only sound that came out was the band playing. I could not hear voices at all, though I could see people talking at a podium. ( I had never seen the movie, so I didn't know what to expect )..... so I took the DVD out and flipped it over and put it back in..... same thing... same video, same sound, no voices. So then I put in a Batman movie, and of course everything was just fine.....

I brought the disc back to the library and told the librarian of my experience. She said "No problem. We will just send it out to be repaired; this happens all the time."

OK, so I have had a DVD player since when DVD players were $250 for a basic one and have never had this issue. Also, I can't imagine how they could possibly "fix" this. As far as I can tell, the DVD just is missing the voice track.

Am I wrong here?

Have no idea if it relates but recently I had a Netflix Bluray that wasn't playing the front three channels but instead mixed the surround into the front three...so no dialog. I looked at the disk and it appeared fine and clean. Played again same thing. Reported it. Just for fun cleaned it. Then it played fine. Never had that happen before...

For that DVD, I think the default track is the isolated score. Go into the audio menu options of the DVD (not the player) and pick the english audio track and enjoy the show smile.gif

That makes sense, but it sure seems like a stupid idea.
