Forgive me if these are stupid questions, but........ I have a Sony 940 a/v amp, Sony 725 DVD player (R2 only) and Sony VCR. The DVD player is connected to the amp and TV via a digital coaxial cable and RGB Scart respectively, the similarly the VCR via analogue phono and Scart. When I set the amp to AFD mode (Auto Format Decode) and use the DVD player, the amp will auto select 5.1 DD or DPL according to how the disc is encoded. The only exception to this is with DTS software (eg Gladiator), where I actually have to manually select DTS from the film menu screen each time, its this normal?? Next question: Are there any TV programs (normal TV, not satellite, digital etc) or videos encoded with anything else but stereo? When I watch either of these sources with my amp set to AFD, I only get stereo - is this normal? I played Star Wars Episode 1 the other night, and was surprised I also still only got stereo, not even DPL?? I can select DPL manually on the amp but is this a 'virtual' DPL or real encoded DPL from the software?? Does DD not mean a full surround sound soundtrack?? Sorry for so many questions!! Thanks Andy P.
