Hello,\n\nMy question is with regard to Media Player's ability to correctly detect\nhigh definition compatible digital (HDCD) CDs. I have seen on occasions\nwhere the player detects a disc and replaces the mini spectral analyzer (the\none that appears at the bottom to the right of the volume control bar and to\nthe left of the artist, song title, album info) with a green on black "HDCD"\nlogo, but it only appears under certain circumstances. The logo does not\nappear when you first start from the beginning or when you skip tracks, but\nit does appear if the title is allowed to naturally progress from one track\nto another. So, if you want to listen to track X, select track X-1, and then\nadvance the the player to just before the end of the track, and you will see\nthe HDCD logo appear for track X. I've seen this behavior for both the B-52s\n"Time Capsule" and Christopher Cross's "Walking In Avalon" [Disc 2].\n\nFirst, is it possible for the player to correctly decode HDCD content and\nnot display that logo? Second, is there any other way to verify, other than\nthat logo, that a title is being played back in 20-bit HDCD mode and not just\n16-bit CD audio. Finally, is this a bug in Media Player or something wrong\nwith my setup?\n\nI'm using Media Player 10 with Windows XP SP2 and a Creative Soundblaster\nAudigy 2 NX sound module. Under Devices tab of the options menu, I have the\nAudio CD properties set to digital playback with error correction. Under the\nspeaker properties (an odd place to put it), under performance, I've checked\nthe box for 24-bit audio for audio CDs.
