I have a Fosgate Model Three A processor circa 1994 that only decodes Dolby Pro-Logic. I am thinking of taking it out again and setting up a small secondary system.

This may be a ridiculous question, but what would happen if I played a Dolby Digital or DTS encoded DVD through it?

Thanks for any help.

DD and DTS are digital formats requiring a digital connection to the receiver, or analog 5.1 connections with the digital decoding being done in the DVD player. Since Pro-Logic is an analog format, you would connect the DVD using the R/L red and white analog audio. A DVD player downmixes DD to Pro-Logic over the analog connection, so you would get Pro-Logic from DD DVD's. DTS does not downmix, so you'd have to opt for the DD or Pro-Logic track (one or the other is required by spec) on DTS DVD's
