    I have a Philips DVD/Home Cinema where I can play DVDs and get Dolby Digital and DTS no problem. I then bought a DVD recorder which I want to play my DVDs on (because it has component out which the other one doesnt for the component in on my projector). I connected the audio out to the audio in with RCA / phono cables but I do not get surround sound i.e. no center speaker sound. My recorder does have coax and optical outputs but the DVD/Home Theatre does not have the inputs.

    Any ideas what I can do to get better sound ?

    Hi johnniekipper,

    I don't think there's anything more you can do with your current setup. To get surround sound you would have to have a digital connection.

    That's the problem with this hobby. You upgrade one bit and then realise that you need to upgrade other bits aswell. I reckon you need to start looking for an AV amplifier and seperate speaker package if you want decent sound to go with the component video from your DVD player.
