DVD player sound

Question

I thought that the burned DVD was defective because the sound, when played on a DVD connected to a TV, was distorted and very low in volume. By accident I discovered that it depends on how it is connected to the TV set. If you use the RF modulator on the the DVD player, the result is what I had. If you connect them throught he video and audio cables there is no problem. I could not understand this because CDs do not have this problem. It must be that the sound coding or decoding are different in the two systems. Why is this?

No software will have any effect of the FM intercarrier sound modulation from an RF up-coverter.

 

Check that you don't have the TV set to A/V when you play back using the RF patch cable. The reason is that when you go to A/V you basically bypass the TV tuner and this can cause problems in both audio and video

 

To be honest it seems a shade strange that you actually have an RF output from the DVD player (I haven't seen one here - that all use SCART A/V connections with nary an RF module in sight)

It might give you a partial explanation if you were to check your DVD player set-up menus/options -- AC3 on a DVD is very different from audio CDs, & there are often settings for compression etc. depending on the player. As gi7omy, find the use of an rf modulator *very* unusual, but happens I suppose... Judging from the quality of rf modulators I've seen in most stores (on the rare occasions I've seen them) you *might* have better luck passing the signal thru a VCR if you have one, assuming you had a reason not to use separate cabling to begin with.
