What I mean is this... Heres the deal I want to back up a couple of my laserdiscs that have 5.1 audio. Now if the DVD Recorder has a digital in (coax or opt) can I transfer the signal from the LD to the DVD Recorder and capture that 5.1. *Yes it would be running through the necessary RF Demoudulator. I had one of the first DVD Recoders that panny put out a couple years ago and It just recorded in stereo and all in all was a $1000 piece of shit! It rarely worked when it did most of the time the picture was blocky and worthless. I`ve seen a huge improvement with the newer players, but before I put down the money on a new one I woulld just like to know in advance if getting the 5.1 is possible. Thanks in advance!
