Default Re: Connecting a HD DVD player to a home theatre system

I like the fact that this systems is wireless.
Yes you can. It has an HDMI input, and you can try that to see if it accepts PCM 5.1. If it does not, simply use the optical input.

As for the OP, you actually could have gotten surround sound with your old system, it would have been the same surround sound you got with regular DVD - Dolby Prologic. This of course is matrixed and not as good as true 5.1 DD/DTS, but you would not have been stuck with 2ch.

In short for anyone asking this question, you can hook up your HD DVD player the same way you did your standard DVD player to your system. It has the provisions to be backwards compatible with any type of receiver.
We're all in it together.
