Was wondering how many movies out there that are currently produced in 7.1surround DTS HD MA? I ask cause if there is not alot produced I won't buy an A35. Currently I have an A3 but can return it and I have a 7.1 Onkyo 705 system.

Title that use DTS-HD MA audio tracks are very rare on HD-DVD less than 1%.

See HD-DVD Statistics track site: http://www.hddvdstats.com/index.php

Also most movies don't have a 7.1 audio master available. But if you already own a Onyko 705 then you can have 7.1 sound with any 5.1 audio track since it will matrix the surround channels into 4 speakers.

Where does it mention 7.1? I see a column listing audio codecs, but it doesn't indicate number of channels.

I don't know of a site that tracks the number of channels in the audio format of title in a nice table like hddvdstats.com. You can find the spec for each title on highdefdigest.com by going to each review.

The one of the few studio's releasing titles with 7.1 audio in Lionsgate:
