Yes, this player will read from a DVD-R and DVD+R with no problems. I will add a disclaimer to this though as not every DVD burner is the same but I have not had an issue with DVD's burned from my PC and an LG burner

Yes it will as long as the format is VOB or standard DVD encryption. But I would not count on that player working very long as a DVD player as it is put together with junk parts and capacitors.

answer 3
If your TV has audio output RCA jacks (the white and red jacks for audio), yes you will. You connect the red and white cables into your TV thru the RCA audio output jacks, into the RCA input jacks (AUX IN) on the back of the player. Or, if your tv doesn't have the RCA Jacks but it does have the optical audio connection, and you have an optical audio cable,then yes it will. The other end of the cable goes into the player. Which ever way you do it, while you are watching your TV, push the source button on the player to the AUX IN channel and you should have surround sound via the player.

Yes. There is a mute button on this. A side note. I have learned with my newer television that if I turn the volume to 'minimum' which basically turns off the volume from the DVD surround system the television speakers will take over. The mute button on the DVD system remote does mute and will override the tv system also.

All necessary cables should come with this. Depending on what all you are going to connect through it you might need one or more HDMI cables. Don't let them sell you an uber expensive one. A cheap, no name HDMI cable works every bit as well as the high dollar cables. I'm a co. IT person. I know this to be true.
