[RndTbl] Offtopic plea for help

This is not at all a Unix question, but I don't have any better ideas. I 
have a Pioneer DV-343 DVD player, and it works fine with CDs, but when I 
pop in a movie DVD, I get no sound. The picture plays fine. It *used* to 
play the sound, but I want to be really sure this player is defective 
before I buy another one. I have another DVD player which plays just 
fine through the exact same connection to my Yamaha 5.1 Dolby Digital 

So, does anyone have a home theatre system and want to try plugging in 
my DVD player to it and see if they can wrestle some sound out of it? 
The DVD player has stereo, S/PDIF coax and S/PDIF fibre outputs. It 
should be easy to pop it in place of your current player.

I can bring it to the meeting on Tuesday if there are any takers.
