    My receiver doesn't have DD or DTS decoding built in, so right now, I use the DD decoder in my DVD player (A Sony 350 I think). I'm getting a PS2 soon, and was wondering if it will also decode the audio so that I can take advantage of the 5.1 built into games & dvds.

    Couldn't find this info in either the Sony FAQ, or here on the board.

    BTW, does anyone have a PDF of the PS2 manual? Thanks.

    Don,

    You WILL need a DD/DTS receiver or a standalone decoder in order to get DD and/or DTS out of the PS2.

    Smeg. Ah well, guess its time to buy a new receiver. This one's been acting kinda strange lately anyway. Thanks for the info guys.

    Can the PS2 be used with an optical connection?
