Ive got an older Pioneer VSX without HDMI. It is a 6.1 with DTS and DTS EX compatable (whatever that means?). Anyways, i found this wiring diagram on the DTS site and it shows that i can run analog from a BlueRay to my receiver to gain DTS MA. Has anyone ever tried this and am i thinking that i can do this as a stop gap while upgrading to a HDMI receiver? Also, if it does work my sub is hooked up using a preout, how will the sub be effected if at all? Thanks ahead of time....


Heres the diagram i was talking about.

If your receiver has 5.1 or 7.1 analog inputs and your Bluray player or HD-DVD player has 5.1 or 7.1 analog outputs and has internal decoding of DTS-HD-Ma then you will be able to get access to DTS-HD-Ma track of certain movies (from Fox, New Line) by connecting 6 or 8 analog cables between the two and configuring the two devices accordingly. There is a chart out there in the bluray player forum that describes which players have what features. This might help you out.
