Hi, everyone. I'm not completely a newbie here (over 50 posts), but there are still A LOT of things I just don't know. Anyway, my subject line says just about everything. The Yamaha RX-V596 is a year 2000 model which has 6.1 channel inputs according to Yamaha's website, but I'm not sure that's correct (on the back of the receiver there are inputs that look like they would be for another 5.1 device like DVD-A, but not necessarily 6.1). Also, with the DPL II thing, I know I'd have to get some sort of external decoder for it, if such a thing even exists. Any help you can give is appreciated.
