    From reading other threads, I understand that if a TV is connected to the DVD by HDMI, the sound cannot be reproduced by a TV.
    This isn't a problem for me as I'll use my digital amp. But my next door neighbour is slowly upgrading his stuff and only has a pro logic amp.
    So my question is this: is the sound from the stereo output on the DVD player unaffected and thus able to send prologic to his amp?
    The player has not been bought yet, so if anyone knows of any which do (or don't) work in these circumstances, it would same him some money.
    Thanks.

    You will get sound from your dvd player through HDMI connection to your tv but it won't be surround sound.
    You will get prologic by connecting dvd player to amp by stereo output
    I am certain about the HDMI and almost certain about the stereo output.
    Hopefully someone will confirm
