    I have a Yamaha 530RDS powering my eltax monitor III fronts, eltax symphony centre and gale rears......I have my Sky Digibox (went it works) attached to the amp using analogue connections, DVD with coaxial. Due to only having one scart socket on the back of the TV, I have connected my VCR through its scart socket using an adaptor with Composite video and L&R analogue sound to my TV. I am then connecting the TV to the amplifier by L&R leads!!
    If you are still with me so far thankyou for your patience!!
    Everything works well apart from the VCR which refuses to play in Prologic II mode and sound only comes from the centre speaker. I have hooked up the VCR straight into the amplifier but that does not seem to help. It is an Awia VCR. i have found in my manual that it is a monaural sound but what is this!!
    Can you help!!

    Sadly you need a Hifi Stereo VCR to get what you want.
    A mono VCR just gives a single channel of sound (not that high quality either to be honest), there is no stereo matrix to decode, and hence no ProLogic.

    You could try one of Yamaha's DSP modes which may offer some improvements though!

    Adam, monaural sound is single chanel, not stereo, go get yourself a NICAM VCR if you want any sort of suround from VHS.
