DVD Player with 5.1 Audio Input

Hi All

I used to have a lovely Philips surround sound DVD system, and then, one fateful day, my 2 year old thought she would see what happens when you jam a Sky interactive card into the CD slot. I'll tell you what happens, it f*cks up the player, and it keeps telling you that it cannot load any disks.

Does anyone know if you can buy a DVD player with 5.1 input? She hasn't b*ggered up the speakers (they are out of harms reach...for now).

I am no techno man, so help would be handy.

Cheers guys and gals.

Good question. Basically, I have the DVD player with a slot in the back for 5:1 speakers. My speakers are fine, so I just want a DVD player that has the socket so I can plug my speakers in.

The speakers are really good, so I don't want to buy a whole new setup.

Hope someone can help.

I had exactly the same problem. I ended up going to Aldi and getting some dodgey DVD recorder. I don't use it for recording, but for playback its top notch. Your best bet is to go Tesco/Currys/ASDA and look at the display models. Yank them out, trying carefully not to set off the alarm, ad have a look at the ports on the back.

Your other option which somebody told me is optical output. Look it up I'm not sure what it is but apparently if your surround sound system supports it you can link it through this.
