Hi everyone! This is my first post here, but I’ve come here in the past for A/V solutions…and the info I’ve found here has been very helpful
So here’s my question. I’ve been backing up my DVD’s (have two 6yo boys ;)) to keep them protected, but a co-worker just mentioned that I may be short changing myself a bit. When I back up my DVD’s, I only record the 5.1 channel track and not the 2 channel track as most times, we watch them at home.
But on trips, when we play them back on our portable DVD player in my car (your basic 2 speaker system), will we hear all the sounds that were recorded? I don’t expect to get surround sound, but will all 5 channels burned on the DVD get “merged” so I can still hear all the sounds thru the basic two speakers? Or will I only hear 2 of the 5 channels?
I’ve been searching the internet for an answer to this, but coming up short.
