    If a DVD player has a digital coaxial output does it automatically mean that it outputs 5.1?

    Cheers, James.

    The Digital output will output what you ask it to. For example if you set it to just be PCM (Pulse Coded Modulation then all your get will be Stereo L&R. Or setting it to Dolby Digital / DTS then your get 5.1, or even 7.1 surround depending on the DVD your playing at the time that's if your AV reciever can decode that. Hope this helps, but there's no such thing as "Digital Coax" Coax is just coax lol.
