    Okay, I have the Denon AVR-4802 and the JVC XV-SA75GD DVD player, which is DVD-Audio compatible. I have a few questions. Here is the back of my receiver, in case you need to reference it to answer my questions:
    http://www.globustech.com/chris/avr4801back.jpg
    1. Are there any DVD movies out with DVD-Audio, and if not, will there be?
    2. In addition to my digital optical connection, do I also need to connect the analog cables for DVD-Audio?
    3. Do I connect the DVD-Audio cables to the Pre-Out on my receiver, or the Ext. IN?
    3. How do I know that I am getting DVD-Audio if I also have the digital optical connection hooked up.
    I guess this question applies only if there are DVD-Audio movies:
    4. How would I take advantage of the DVD-Audio when playing a DVD-Audio movie if I have both the digital optical and the DVD-Audio connections hooked up?

    Connect your cables to the EXT-IN area at the rear of the receiver and when you put on a DVDA, make sure you press the EXT-IN switch to utilize the full 6 channels.

    My Denon 3300 has a EXT-IN switch on the front of the receiver for instance.

    Okay, thanks for answering my stupid questions. I was pretty sure of the answers, but I just wanted to be positive.

    Ok, 1 more question:

    My receiver has 2 each inputs under EXT IN for Center and Subwoofer (a Left & a Right), yet my player only has 1 jack each for center and subwoofer. What do I do? Do I need 2 Y-connectors?

    From looking at the image of the back panel you've posted, there's only one center (white) and one subwoofer (SW, red) underneath it, the other two are marked SB and are for the rear most surround channels. You would only use 6 of those 8 inputs since DVD-A only supports up to 5.1 channels of output.

    Shit, you're right. I am breaking my neck (and back, and knees, and...) bending around the back of the cabinet trying to do this without pulling my whole entertainment center away from the wall too much. I just couldn't see very well. Sorry!
