many times it will not be possible.

I dont think many of the dvd players downmix DTS . They do downmix dolby however...

and most of the DVDs include other audio formats besides DTS. what DVD are you trying to watch?

heh, not silly. usually the main problem.

Setup dvd player to output DTS (if it does)
Setup receiver to play DTS (if it does)
Select DTS track from DVD.

all set. Most all receivers that I know of will take 5/6/7.1 DTS and play through 2 channels.

Well in all honesty I've seen folks with 10,000 dollar+ home theater systems call me over for a demo...

"Check out this, its incredible!"

While playing their DVD in 2 channel stereo using dolby pro logic hooked up with a single composite cable.

we're gonna need to do just a little work here.
;)

Yep. I'd say most home theaters are setup this way from my experience (done tons of installs/help folks out for a 6 pack)

Heck when I got a new DVD player and threw in a movie I thought "why does this sound so bad?"...forgot to enable the digital output.

Your DVD player should have a menu system, turn it on without a DVD in the drive and access the menu. It will be in one of the options for output or something similar, it will be obvious.
