I noticed this whole section in the forum, but I didn't see the DVD-Audio nor the SACD logos on the home page. Are those formats included in the LaserDisc Database?

It's part of my projects whenever-I-can-spare-a-week-end-to-code-it.
But I'd like to insert my DTS/DVD-A/SACD into there as well some day!

Discogs is just doing it way better than I could ever... so my collection moved there.

However, I added DVD-A as a format for the Hardware Database.

Was there any specificity to the DVD Audio players? Or could they play in DVD Audio without limitations?

I know that you can play most DVD-Audio discs in a regular DVD player (my brother was getting DVD-A discs when I got our first DVD player), but to get the true 24-bit audio from it you need a player with the DVD-Audio specification.

When we played DVD-A discs, we could only access the 5.1 (I believe) Dolby Digital soundtrack on them and nothing else.

I think I have a Widescreen Review magazine with the specs for DVD-A in it (and they were NOT on DVD-A's side--they praised the crap out of SACD back then.) If I can find it I'll scan it and share.

I'm actually not looking for DVD-A discs specs but for possible variations in the capacity of some players with the DVD AUDIO logo not able to access all the features.

I believe DVD AUDIO is essentially a DVD with the AUDIO_TS folder structure and provides up to 192Hz-24bit multi-channel MLP audio, and this depends probably on the DACs used in a specific player.

you're most likely right since DVD-A discs can be read by standard DVD players.

As for players with the DVD-Audio logo not being able to play all the features, I've only ever owned two DVD-Audio capable players so I can only say I've never had any playback issues with either of them with any of the DVD-Audio discs I own. You would think that if Toshiba were to license the tech to any manufacturer that they would ensure full compatibility, but they didn't seem to be so stringent with HD-DVD (with early dual format blu-ray/HD-DVD players not being able to access all HD-DVD features.) So who knows?
