    Do I just hook up my regular RCA cables for my DVD-Audio? The left and right (red and white) to the appropriate inputs on my receiver? What cable do I use for the center channel preout? Do I need to hook up a subwoofer cable to the subwoofer preout/input even though my sub is already hooked up to its own preout? My receiver has two places for the sub, one by the dvd analogs and one by itself. Will my receiver (Pioneer VSX-D508) display indicate all five channels are in use if I'm hooked up correctly? I have this capability and have not attempted to use it yet. If someone can help me, then I can try it out tomorrow (my girlfriend's asleep now!). Thank You, Mike M.

    First, your DVD player has to be capable of DVD-Audio. Assuming it is, there should be 6 analog outputs grouped together (FL,C,FR,SL,SR,BS,SW) in addition to 2 normal analog outputs (L/R) and the digital outputs (coax or optical(or both).

    These 6 analog outputs should be directly wired to the "EXT. IN" inputs on the reciever (at least that's what they're called on my Denon reciever)which are separate from the DVD L/R input.

    I'm using normal RCA cables for all the analog connections and they work fine.

    Hope this helps!

    I have everything except the back surround. The DVD player is a JVC XV-FA95GD and it is DVD-Audio capable. The center channel preout stands alone so what cable do I use for that? Does it matter if it is a right or left RCA or are there single audio cables for this specifically?

    Yeah, J's right. The color coding on the ends of the cables (red/white) is only just that - color - so you don't get the ends confused at the opposite end.

    Thank's Gentlemen. I'm going to pick up my first DVDA CD's today. I am waiting on a new speaker set up so this should be FUN!
