hi leeknight67......
the dvd will need to be a recorder not just a player....
if it is a recordable dvd then its just a matter of tuning into the sky channel on the dvd's tuner.....hope this helps.Dave.

"i have heard you can watch sky through dvd and get surround sound"

Unless your DVD player also has a surround sound decoder, and the correct inout sockets (in other words, it's a surround sound system), then you have been misinformed.

If it's a DVD recorder, then you don't "tune it in" - you connect the right type of cables from the sky box. You also need to check if it actually does surround sound decoding from a stereo input.
