    Hey all,

    I have a sony dav-s550 but am soon going to purchase a DVD recorder. Would it be possible for me to connect the recorder to the sony using the optical output and then just using the sony as an amplifier?

    For example if I stuck in a DVD DTS movie into the recorder would I still get 5.1 sound out of the sony speakers?

    Thanks :thumbsup:

    Yes and Yes - it should work fine. I tried it using the PS2 and DD/DTS came through OK (although the picture was a bit ropey :)
