    How can a DVD player improve sound quality beyond what it is recorded at? What is the reason that(at least my receiver) can not play the upgraded audio in PLII? thanks for any help!

    The remaster function on my Panasonic RP91 is probably the same as the RP82. It generates (interpolates) an extra sample between samples on your CD. Instead of 44100 samples per second, you get 88200 samples per second.

    Since there are three remastering 'modes', it might be possible that there are some harmonics added to the signal, like adding seasoning to your music. Maybe. I'm not sure.

    All I really know is that it causes a 44.1kHz recording to come out at 88.2kHz.

    As for Pro Logic II not working on an 88.2kHz signal, it might be that when PLII is used, it requires a digital signal processor (DSP) that might not be designed to process an 88.2kHz signal. I know that on my Yamaha RX-V1200 receiver, DSP functions don't work on 24-bit/96kHz signals, but 88.2kHz signals work. It's just a choice made by the engineers who designed your receiver.
