    some dvd players have an "onboard" dd decoder. they are useful for older dolby pro-logic only receivers.

    you can still connect the two (via the multi-channel input) and utilize the dvd players decoder. that way you'll still be able to enjoy the benefits of dd without having to upgrade the receiver.

    I don't think there's any surround receivers out there today available (new) for purchase that DON'T have a DD decoder (correct me if I'm wrong plz). Use the optical or coax connection from the DVD player into one of these receivers and you'll be fine.
