Hello all

Would anyone know if you could use a Pioneer VSX-27TX Receiver as an RF Demodulator?

I know you can use it as an RF Decoder with the internal RF Demodulator and 6-channel outputs, but it also has a TOSLink out labeled PCM/DTS OUT which I believe was mainly used for digital recording to MD/DAT/etc.

Would the demodulated AC-3 signal be passed through that?

Unfortunately, I currently do not have an LD player with an RF output with which to test this.

Generally on receivers of this era the digital out is only a direct facsimile of the digital in with no conversion. But what you want might work if the output of the demodulator feeds first into the same digital feed of that input.
Hopefully someone with the same receiver can inform one way or the other.
