Sherwood Newcastle SD-871
Unsure if this would be the correct place to post this question but here goes:
As someone who was saddened by Oppo’s decision to exit the multi format bluray player market, I decided to awaken my old Sherwood SD-871 multi format DVD player from several years of slumber for DVD viewing to conserve life on my Oppo BPD-103D player. The Sherwood player still works and also does SACD and DVD Audio. It has an HDMI output which I believe is version 1.1. According to the owner’s manual, it should output DVD Audio through the HDMI out as multi channel PCM the same as the Oppo. While it does read the DVD Audio version and outputs the video, my Integra does not get an audio input signal. The HDMI is the only connection I have made to the processor. I don’t wish to connect the 5.1 analog outputs since it defeats Audussey speaker calibration. The Oppo is connected to the Blu-ray/DVD input via split HDMI connection, 1 directly to the TV and 2 to the processor and plays DVD Audio via HDMI as expected. I have tried every setting adjustment on the Sherwood and Integra that I can find but still can’t get DVD Audio output. It does however decode Dolby Digital and DTS through the HDMI and will also play the DVD Video portion of DVD Audio discs. Is there someone out there maybe still rocking one of these old players or possibly remembers how to get DVD Audio via HDMI on the old Sherwood? Any help would be appreciated.
