    DTS can only be decoded by a DTS processor, usually found in a AV amp, processor or seperates speaker system.

    Plugging the SCART output from a DVD into the TV will only get stereo (can be decoded into Pro-Logic though)

    Does the TV have digital input? (coaxial or optical)

    Send Component or SCART RGB - (component is video only, SCART RGB is for video & audio-stereo or upto Pro-Logic) and a coaxial or optical from the DVD to the TV for Dolby Digital & DTS decoding (5.1 sound)

    Yup. And for Dolby Digital.. if the TV decodes that as well. Try using a normal phono for now... and get a 75ohm phono to phono whenever.
