I am new to the forum, but not really new to the hobby. So here is the story... I am a recent college grad unemployed and living at home I am bored and so I decided that my parents should finally use their reciever and speakers for their intended purposes. I finally got them to buy a DVD player the other day, but here is the dilemma. The reciever (Sony STR-DE525) is so old that it doesnt actually do the decoding, it is "surround ready" it has the RCA 5.1 inputs, that is, on the back of the reciever are rca inputs for front left and right, rear left and right, center and sub, and no digital. Of course the DVD player only has digital, and regular old red white and yeller. So whats the solution? Do even sell the converters any more? I know they used to. I am sure I am not going to get them to drop any money on another reciever, and there is no way I am lending them mine.
