DVD setup


This is the closest forum I could find to post in - Home audio is for HI-FI systems I suppose but my query is pertaining TV / DVD setup that I need some advice on please, it's quite important.

The setup is quite old - say 2010

DVD player is Panasonic SC-PT470 which was a DVD player with 5 speakers like surround sound in a self contained system. Speakers are on the wall with wires through the house which is handy.

Back of DVD player is SCART, HDMI, Optical and 6 x "rectangular" connectors which are colour coded that feed to the speakers - one of the wires is not connected. There are other connectors but SCART is the one I prefer even though it's dated.

The DVD player has packed in but I may be able to fix this with a "lube" of the spindle as I've found an article online.

Trouble is even if this works eventually the DVD player will not work and I'll need something else.

My connectors look like this in the picture and these lead to the four speakers on the wall (small speakers)

I prefer the SCART connector as the DVD's play through all four speakers (speech) where as the HDMI connector on most DVD's only play speech through the centre speaker.

Eventually I may update the whole system but currently I just need it to work as it has been

New DVD players don't have the scart and the pin connectors you see down below.

There may be some hardware I'm not aware of that will keep me going nicely - Thanks - Any good help appreciated
