    CNN Article
    I have a few questions, maybe some of you can answer.
    I'll be setting up my Home Theater System this weekend and I have a JVC DVD Player that plays DVD-A. I was under the assumption that if I hook up the digital optical output i'll be getting a digital signal from playing the DVD-A.

    AFAIK, the digital outs on SACD and DVD-A players are for Dolby Digital and DTS ONLY.

    and regular CDs. The optical out on SACD players transmits nothing when the machine is playing a SACD.

    Same for DVDA on my Toshiba 4800. I have to connect up the 5 analog cables between my DVD play and receiver to hear DVDA or high res stereo.
