Hi. I'm new to this and thought I'd ask for help. We are putting a media room in our basement. Primary use will be watching DVDs with a front projector (Marantz or Runco DLP). I also have an old Pioneer DVL-700 combo laserdisc player that I would like to make use of for some of my LDs that aren't out on DVD yet. I would use a new DVD player for the DVDs and use this old unit exclusively for LDs. Anyway, I was told today that the new AV receivers do not process the AC-3 sound from LDs anymore, so I would probably have to buy a separate processor for this. Otherwise, I wouldn't get any sound. Does this make sense? I only have a handful of LDs I want to watch, so I don't want to spend a lot just to watch these. I can't believe I can't just plug this unit into today's AV receivers and get sound (maybe not the best surround, not functional at least). Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks.
