MPC-HC plays this DVD incorrectly. To see how it should be played, use MPC-BE.

I confirm - it does not highlight items in the menu with native hardware acceleration (DXVA2/D3D11).

It's not the biggest trouble here. MPC-HC seems to ignore DVD structure commands at all playing this disc.

Menu clicks work fine here.

Highlights work fine as well with MPCVR and EVR-CP. EVR-Sync has issues, but that renderer is not being developed anymore.

Using hardware decoding for DVD is bad idea. I do not provide support for that.

Well then you need to disable hardware acceleration in LAV for DVD.

clsid, I meant the different issue. I do not have hardware decoding enabled for DVD.
Try playing the disc with [x] Remember DVD position.

Aleksoid1978, MPC-BE plays this DVD with [x] Remember DVD position incorrectly, too.

For me all is good with Remember DVD position - select film, after sometime playback close. Reopen - and playback start from last position.

Close the player after checking [x] Remember DVD position, open it again and start playing the DVD. For me it starts showing the clip with papers - which it should not.

Audio-Downmix 5.1 to stereo; how to change "music" level?

In some of my movies the sound of music, sounds, noises is extremely
loud compared to the talking.
I expected to adjust this by the downmix settings
(Options / Internal Filters / Audio decoder / Mixing / Mixer)
But shifting the sliders (Center or Surround from 0.71 default)
doesn't change anything.
I'm pretty sure I'm doing something wrong, but have no idea what.
Any help appreciated.

Modify at your taste until Center Mix Level 1.0, Surround/LFE to 0.0

And of course in the drop-down make sure "stereo" (or whatever speaker setup you're using is selected). Speaker layout also needs to be set in the Windows sound control panel so it matches.

As I wrote in my first post: There is literally no difference, no matter what level I push the sliders to (Eg. Surround/ LFE = 0; no difference if Center = 0 or 1.0).
The sliders simple don't have any effect with me. There must be some other adjustment...?

To figure this out better, you need more data points..

By any chance are you getting the audio by using an audio output from a monitor connected via hdmi? On mine this would be a disaster, it would be too quiet. Have it output directly from your PC instead so it doesn't go through the monitor.

Compare sound using Windows Film & TV player.. not for sliders (which it doesn't have), but just to get a frame of reference of how it sounds in general compared to the players you're working with.

If you send the audio without decode to PCM Bitstreaming (SPDIF,HDMI) it to your audio player any Mix option is ignored.
The decode, mix, volume, etc. is controlled by your audio player.
Deselect the Bitstreaming options:

Thank you for your hints.
Meanwhile I de-installed the older version of MPC-HC, installed v.2.1.5, reset all settings... and now the "background" sound is kind of acceptable.
The bitstream options are cleared, and the mixing too (???).

However I just tested to activate mixing and shifted Surround and LFE to zero. Effect: No effect.
This audio chain seems to be terribly complex...

Mixing settings only have effect when it is actually doing mixing (like 5.1 input to stereo output).

If your input file already is stereo, then try Volume Normalization:
MPC-HC Options > Internal Audio Switcher

This will reduce loudness difference. Soft sounds will become louder.
