    I think there are DVD recorders with that ability due soon, however none of the current ones will record DD5.1 audio.
    You'll probably get more upto date info by posting in the DVD recorder forum:)

    Yep this is the case im pretty sure.

    The way to get around this is to use a PC and PC DVD-RW.

    I know its not the answer you wanted but PC DVD combinations are alot better and cheaper than TV ones.

    You get stereo sound, which includes Dolby Surround, which is really only stereo sound with encoded surround information.
