    :lease: help someone.
    I have just ordered this amp from Germany along with some cantons. I know the amp doesn't have HDMI but does have coax and optical digital inputs. However both my sky+ and panny dvd have optical digital out only... How can I set up both using best audio please? I am hoping for 7.1 from dvd player and wanted similar from sky too. I realise that sky will do "surround sound" but will this be dolby digital or what(depending on the broadcast)? How can I set this lot up with max quality for audio - is there something similar to a scart doubler for optical leads? I dont really want to buy a new dvd player at the mo with hi def on the horizon.
    Please help - this forum is fantastic for newbies like me but I realise a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. Thanks :thumbsup:

    if you open http://www.yamaha-uk.com/pdfs/manuals/RXV2500.pdf and go to page 11 you'll see there enough optical inputs for both your peice's of kit. whats more you'll notice 1 marked dvd and one marled cable/sat, plug sky into cable/sat and away we go :) .

    hope this helps,

    spk.

    Most of sky is not in Dolby Digital, a lot of the pay-per-view movies are in dolby digital as are a some movies on the Movie Channels & Disney
