The only reason I haven't gotten rid of my DVD player yet is that I'm 
not sure what the best route to get 5.1 digital out sound working.  Any 
suggested setups?  Right now I'm using using standard analog 2ch sound 
from my onboard VT8233...  Works fine for TV and cable recordings, but 
doesn't cut it for DVDs.  Any tips or documentation anyone can point me to?
