I just bought a regionfree version of the RP82 & it refuses to play my DVD-RAM & DVD-Audio discs. For DVD-RAM, it shows a message saying 'this type of disc cannot be played'. For DVD-Audio, it only plays the Dolby Digital 5.1 portion, not the main DVD-A content. When I tried the Blue Man Group DVD-A, it just played a documentary on the DVD-A side of the disc -- I just couldn't get it to play the actual DVD-A content.


Can someone with the RP82 verify that DVD-RAM & DVD-Audio discs plays properly. Thanks in advance.

DVD-Audio works fine for me. Are you using the analog outputs? I only have a few discs but those work perfectly. I don't have any DVD-RAM so I can't comment on those.

Yes, I'm using analog outputs. Joe, when you pop a DVD-A disc in, does the LED indicator show "DVD A"? Mine still shows DVD-V. The audio that gets played is the DD5.1 content, not the DVD-A content.


On my previous player, the RP91, it defaulted to the DVD-A content when a DVD-A disc was inserted.

I also have a region free RP82. I have had no problems playing DVDRAM. I only use the Panasonic brand. I don't use DVD-A.

Brajesh, as somebody pointed out to me, make sure in the setup menu that you have DVD video set to OFF (first item in last setup menu tab). I always have, but if you turn it ON, it will not recognise a DVD-A as one, but as a DVD-V, and the DVD-A specific (hi-res) tracks will be invisible.


Yes, I and some others have some issues playing the high-res surround mix on some NEW Warner DVD-A's on the RP82. I also cannot get the DD mix to play properly unless I turn DVD video ON. It works more or less fine for older releases, but not for their latest batch (allegedly, I only have 2 new ones, and have only tried one of them, to cut my losses).


Edit: I now have two new release Warners (coincidentally two that CC Rider also has, another thread re Yamaha/RP91 probs) Linkin Park and Yes that don't work properly. I did not keep the Warner discs I had bought in the meantime, sorta gave up on them for a while... So be careful, disc format may be "confusing", and lead to incorrect assumptions (not that I know what the correct one is).
