    I recently got a Panasonic DVD Recorder(DMR-E100H) but I'm having a problem. I have DirecTV and I've recorded PPV movies that are broadcast in DD 5.1, but they only record in DD 2.0. Am I doing something wrong, or is it not possible to record in 5.1?

    By the way, I picked this unit up when Ultimate Electronics went out of business in Dallas and thought I got a good deal at $279.00, but now now I'm not so sure.

    Thanks

    I believe most, if not all, current DVD recorders will only record 2 channel audio.

    That Ultimate Electronics liquidation rocked. I cleaned up shopping two stores in the area!!!
