    This may be the stupidest question ever asked but I thought I read otherwise here.

    I just opened and installed my Kenwood HTB 504 (come on guys the manual wasnt THAT bad...but youd think they would recognise the fact that people actually have cable or Dish boxes)and I cannot get DD or DTS without the digital cable...I recall people saying that it does'nt matter. Am I doing something wrong or did I misread other posts?

    SIDEBAR: Installed it overnight and waited until 12noon to play Pearl Harbor DTS...5 minutes into the invasion my 1yr old cousin in the apartment upstairs takes a nap! AARRGGHH

    (I just got the thing...dont want to play it low! Anyone know a good daycare that I can send her to?)

    IM SHAKEING THE GODDAMN HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm not sure exactly what you are asking, but the simplest way to obtain 5.1 is through the use of a digital connection (whether optical or coaxial) from a source to a receiver w/ 5.1 decoder(s). One cannot obtain 5.1 through the use of a single set of analog stereo ins/outs.
