    HELP!

    My old Kenwood music amp recently blew and a friend has very kindly gifted me his old Pioneer VSX 804 RDS Receiver to get me through, but I've decided to hook my dvd player into it as well... because... well I really should.

    The DVD player is a Philips DVP 5100/05 which I purchased from amazon (see link).

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos...rements/ref=ed_tec_dp_2_1/203-0497991-0587942

    But I've no idea what to do to obtain the Dolby Pro-Logic it perturbs to produce.

    I have no instruction manual for the old Pioneer receiver, and - although everything appears pretty straightforward), there are a couple of things I'm unsure about.

    I was just wondering if anyone has previously owned this receiver or knows a little more about it... and what the best way to go about buidling a 5.1 system with it would be.

    Thanks in advance

    At a guess the Pioneer is only a dolby pro logic and so just use a normal analogue cable between them. If the pionner has digital inputs use one of those and see what you get.

    Hope this helps

    In all honest though you would be better off saving up and getting a modern amp with :dd: and :dts: than that old pro logic amp. Your missing out so much with out digital .
