5.1 vs 7.1


Can anyone tell me if I use 5.1 (4 satallites, center channel and sub) on a 7.1 capable receiver will I still receive 5.1? or will the receiver not supply correct distribution of sound to the speakers??

simple answer yes

Thanks Chris,
How about if I just add 1 additional satellite and get 6.1. Will the receiver send out the correct distribution of sound to make 6.1 or am I better off keeping it at 5.1 or upgrading to 7.1?

yes, so long as you select one of the 6.1 decoders on the receiver menu.
