I have a DVD, VCR and a SAT reciever. I wan’t to use the standard RCA cable analog audio out from these devices and connect them to a reciever and get the 5.1, ( I realize I would need to be playing/watching something that has the 5.1 encoding (like any DVD)
I purchased an inexpensive RCA 5.1 reciever. I couldn’t get the rear channel to work when using analog audio outputs from my DVD and SAT. After reading the manual, I learned it would only use the 5.1 if I was using the digital outputs from my dvd and sat.
I have another prologic reciever/dvd that can take the analog audio out from my TV and decode the 5.1. I am confused. Do I need a better reciever? or do I need a better DVD and SAT box
