Digital to 6 channel analogue converter

I have recently put a 37 inch Samsung LCD TV + Samsung 1080i dvd player into my dining room as a back up system to the system in my living room. I have an old Sherwood RV5090 amp that I'd like to use to give me 5.1 sound but the Sherwood only has 6 analogue inputs and no digital or optical inputs. Does anyone out there know of any way of taking a digital audio sigal from the DVD player and converting it to a 6 channel analogue input for the amp?
Thanks in advance. T.

Your easiest option would be to buy an old Dolby Digital pre/processor. Something like a Sony EP-9es would do the job (although only with Dolby Digital). It has a number of digital inputs and a 5.1 channel analog output.

There are similar models available from Pioneer, Denon, Onkyo, Panasonic and Marantz.
