    I have a Yamaha 590 amplifier (you know, just before every amp had a 5.1 ch input!!) which is prologic only, and can only accept 2channel analogue inputs. Do all DVDs (or all players) output a 2channel (ProLogic?) mix, even if the player does not have a Dobly digital decoder built in? Without the decoder, how does it downmix the 5.1 to a 2.0 output?

    The answer is yes.
    There should always be a fixed stereo audio output from players, ie at the phono left/right out sockets.
    It is derived from the audio encoded on the disc. It is extrapalated by the player's audio IC and output from the relevant sockets.
    A Pro Logic amp can provide surround sound from a stereo signal.
    That is put simply it.
