    Hi everyone!!

    I'm kinda new around the home theater area and new on the forums. Nice to b here!

    I've got a question...
    Some long time ago, I've bought a Sony "Dream" system with built-in receiver, DVD player, etc. so it was a complete HT solution in one box.(link here: http://www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers.php?DVDnameid=1040&Search=Search&#comments)

    But now, a couple of years later, I want to change the DVD player. I mean, for a better one, that can plays SVCDs, mp3 and stuff like that.
    But since the DVD/receiver is build to work on its own, my question is: is there a way to CONNECT other DVD player on my sony dvd/receiver?? So it can send 5.1 audio, etc, over the sony player?

    In resume: do I need to trade all my HT system or can I just connect some kind of cable to a new DVD player, so I have new DVD player with old HT?

    thanx a lot for any help!

    cheers

    Looking at Sony's description of it I'd say you should be able to hook up a DVD player to it, but you won't be able to use an S-Video connection for the video. It has composite video-in and both digital and analog audio inputs.
