    Is the only source that has more then 2 channels DVDs? Tv, including surround broadcast, CD, VCR(even S vhs), Big analog satelite dish, these are all 2 channels incoming?
    I am trying to decipher the dsp programs available dependent on the source. Thanks again Moira

    DTV, HDTV, DVD (Audio and Video), LaserDisc, CD (DTS), DVHS, DTRS, ADAT and SACD are all capable of carrying or transmitting audio with more than two audio channels.

    And dont forget, many Stereo (2 channel) devices are usually ProLogic encoded. This means they have 2 physical channels of sound, but using a ProLogic decoder, a center speaker and rear speaker channels can be separated out making it a 4 channel device with respect to the speakers.

    I hope Bob and Adam both get this.

    Thanks for the info. I didn't even know there was such a thing as DVHS!!!!

    What in the world are CD (DTS), DVHS, DTRS and ADAT ?

    Anyway, I think basically with my setup, when i use my dvd, that will be the only time i need to pay attention to which dsp i use, right? thanks Moira
