    Hello

    Some advice would be greatly appreciated. I have an amp that handles all my channels and stuff. It is setup to 5.1.

    Now recently I went into my DVD player menu, and saw that it too features 5.1 channels.

    So my question is this: What settings do I use on what component ? Should both DVD and AMP be set to 5.1 ? etc.

    Many thanks

    Renier

    Hi, Check with the manual but the digital output should just send the full 5.1 soundtrack and the amp will then decode / process. You can then provide distances, size, config, etc on the amp. The other settings on the dvd menu should relate to the analogue outputs. If you're just using a coax / optical out to the amp dont worry about them.

    The 5.1 setting in the player is probably related to the 5.1 output (on-board decoder).
    Since you have an AV amp you don't need to bother with that, it's a kind of redundant and only required if you have an old amp that has a 5.1 (analog) input but no DD/DTS decoding.
