    could someone please confirm that at present it is not possible to copy the dolby digital signal or dts signal fron a dvd player or sky +,

    I am a lover of dvd and would like to back up some great films but feel the lack of this sound would greatly spoil the film's for me and i would'nt want to watch them. are there any recorders due? and does this mean that if i was to purchase a player at present then i would only get a two channel recording?


    thanks for any comments lee

    Yes if you brought a player at present you would only record in DD 2.0.
    If you are a lover of DVD then surely you already have the film!!!???
    However you are able to backup DVD's on a PC (with the right software and DVD drives) with the full DD sound.

    I believe there is a Philips recorder due which will recorder the 5.1 sound (when transmitted - so only sky plus)

    Regards

    Assuming there will be 5.1 recorders out soon, would this mean that it would cut down the capacity of the DVD ? My thought is that if more space is taken up by the sound, then you'd be able to fit less on the disc.
