My DVD player has just packed up :(

Has anyone a cheap player they want to part with that I can use with my surround sound speakers?

I have the usual 5 speakers and a passive sub.

Yes but will it connect directly to my speakers? Don't I need an amp?

Aha! You need a replacement processor and amplification and all that.

You could try one of these:

Thanks Mark, yes those Ebay jobs are similar to what I had, the amp, speakers, tuner etc are still fine and Sky comes through the speakers but the Dvd loads the disk gets to the info/languages screen then makes a clicking noise and stops :?

I had hoped to just connect a new Dvd player to the other bits but the wiring looks to be unique to my untrained eye :(

Nah, just specific plugs. With an AV reciever you can lop the plugs of and connect the speaker wires direct. You can also just replace the DVD player if it goes wrong.

Incidently, you should also be able to connect a cheap DVD player to your existing machine.
