    Help me understand this please. I was reading the specs for the Panasonic RV-32K DVD player. It has Dolby Digital and optical out but the specs say that it has no 5.1 ch surround sound audio out. Does this mean that a 5.1 HT receiver will not work with this DVD player? I am confused, I thought that the optical out was for 5.1.

    The DVD player's optical output will carry the info for all six 5.1 channels to your receiver. Your receiver may also have 6 RCA jack inputs for 6 channel outputs from a DVD player, but those are needed only for DVD-A or SACD.
