Question about Kenwood Audio Players & Recorders
I purchased a KR-V5090 amp in order to listen to dolby surround. Since the only audio inputs are analog RCA stereo inputs, and there is no digital input in the amp/receiver, how on earth is the amp supposed to deliver surround 5.1? How do get into the thing? I want to play it from a macbook pro and I have an a toslink cable with 2 x 3,5mm adapters (one for each end of course) but they're apparently useless. Thanks for your ideas. (Yes, I've been through all the possible settings on the amp with only success in hearing the mid speaker in SRS mode).

Have you configured the digital output settings on the DVD player? You may need to set the digital output format in the DVD player setup menu. If it is set for LPCM then you won't get sound. It has to be set for bitstream and yoou may need to tell the player what output to use.
As you didn't mention the brand of DVD player, I can't really give you any detailed instructions.
Also try using the optical cable that you have connected to the cable box to test it and see if you get any output on that connector. If yyou do then it is a setting in the amp that is not configured properly,
Best of luck

Tips for a great answer:
Have you tried the "Simulated" surround setting?
If you don't get sound in "Simulated" mode then you have probably lost the surround channels.
If you do get sound then your "Media"
is not recorded with a surround "Track". or the surround "Processor" may have issues that need to go to the repair shop.
