    Well to add stuff like plII and DTS neo6 the only way I know of is to buy an amp that decodes these formats, in which case you'd throw the sherwood in the bin.

    Sorry as far as I'm aware there's no way of doing what you want, simply buy an amp that has the formats you require.

    I concur. If you want Dolby PL2 processing then buy an amp/receiver/processor that has it. The Sherwood amp you speak of will be totally redundant and almost worthless with pace of the AV market these days, you might as well dump it or use it as a basic stereo amp on another system.
