| The drive motor for the linear optical-head movement in my 5.1 Ch. Home Theatre System has failed. However, the 5.1 ch audio power output and speakers are working fine, so I would like to continue using it. |
Unfortunately, the box does not have a 5.1 auxiliary input. It just has a standard L-R audio input for stereo.
My requirement is, what can I do to play 5.1 ch DVDs through this box. Can you suggest a. Some sources for replacement drives b. Some way I can hack into the audio circuit- meaning, do DVD disk drives follow any 5.1 ch common standards for output signals which I could hack into? c. Use an external drive d. Hook it up to a drive+sound card on a pc
Thank you for your time.
I made a wise decision, got a bargain deal, and the next day found that my model was outdated.
