One more question, how do I get true 5.1 output? Do I use a coax or optical cable from my DVD to receiver only?You can use either the digital coax or digital optical cable. A single cable between the DVD player and the receiver is all you need. That cable will carry all of the audio (dolby digital, DTS, dolby pro-logic, etc..). Your receiver should be smart enough to identify what is being received, and will make the switch for you.After you make the connection you can try a DVD or two to make sure everything works. You receiver should have some indicator that lights up when a dolby digital signal is being played.You might also want to find a DVD that has a DTS soundtrack and make sure that works, too. You will probably need to select the DTS soundtrack on that specific DVD's "audio" or "set-up" menu. If everything works out OK, then your receiver should have an indicator that lights up to indicate a "DTS" soundtrack is being played. If the DTS soundtrack is not working, you might need to change a setting in the DVD player. Your DVD player's manual will explain this better than I can.Also, don't freak out if your receiver switches to "Dolby Pro-logic" during a DVD menu, special features, etc. Often times the movie itself is the only thing encoded with Dolby Digital and/or DTS audio.marxtacy
