    With the UK release of Resident Evil this friday, I want to set up my GC, so that it can absolutely sound as good as possible!
    I haven't played a Dolby ProLogic 2 capable game yet so I've never bothered hooking it up to my receiver. Is a simple Phono Left/Right cable, the best I can get in terms of sound connection? If I use this, will my receiver (SONY STRDB940) be able to automatically recode PL2?
    Thanks for any help.
    Paul.

    Yes, analog is all you're getting from GameCube. If your reciever is DPL 2 compatible, you will get the effects, otherwise it will work just fine with standard DPL

    What exactly is a "DPL 2" capable game? I have had my AVM-20 upgraded so that all my satelite viewing is now in DPL 2. It does not matter what the original sound format is (I don't think it can be recorded in mono for DPL 2 to work), it depends upon my pre-pro. How or why is this different with the Nintendo GameCube?

    If it had DPLII it would probably be bragging it up either in the manual or on the face of the receiver. Likely both.
