Post subject:  Audio is muted for the first several seconds

I tried converting a couple DVDs, and came up with this problem: the audio doesn't start until about 7 seconds in. It's not delayed, meaning it's still synced properly, but it doesn't start until the 7 second mark. They are both Pokemon DVDs manufactured by Pioneer and Viz Video. They were released a few years apart, the release dates being May 14, 1999 and January 29, 2002, if that matters. This problem only affects the opening logos/previews, but those are what I'm trying to convert, so it's a problem.

Also, the subtitles are on by default, can that be changed?

If you play the DVDs in VLC, is the audio muted there, too?

I have ripped a LOT of Viz Media disks, and a few Pioneers, and have not encountered that problem.

On the other hand, BOTH Pioneer and Viz like to do "one subtitle track", so any player that plays subtitles by default is going to play subtitles.

My way of dealing with that is that everything goes through handbrake after ripping. Viz titles (and some others) are processed to generate a NEW subtitle track that is the first listed, that contains "forced only" subtitles. Since there are none in the track, the new track is empty... so subtitles do not appear until the second track is selected.

Yes, it is also muted in VLC.

Is there a chapter numbered 0 (zero) in the MKV files?

While I have not seen (heard?) a dead lead-in on either brand, I have seen short lead-in chapters on some disks. They usually have audio, though. In VLC, you can open the "Playback" menu, and the Chapters item will list the chapters available. A chapter zero is unusual.

I've seen issues when the user is sending digital audio out to a receiver of some sort and the receiver has to latch on and figure out what type of signal it is receiving. Often times about half a second but it could be worse with some types of audio and receivers.

Would it help if I posted screenshots of the details?

I just want to know if your DVD is genuine or a pirated on? Because in pirated DVD it is a commonly encountered.

These are definitely not pirate releases. The only thing is that the second DVD is stored as files, meaning a Video TS folder, on an external hard drive.

That definitely isn't the problem, because the first DVD was converted directly from the disc and it has the same issue.

Are you using an external amplifier for audio, as Krawk asked? I see this with playback to my TV+theater audio setup for some codecs; every time I pause, it takes a moment before the audio comes back.

If you're playing in VLC, what does it show for audio codecs on the Information->Codec screen?

No external amplifier.
