I'm in the process of upgrading my media room to blue-ray (HTPC). However, I would like to wait with the receiver a bit.
I have a Yamaha RX-V2400 which is a 7.1. However, it looks like it can only "receive" 6.1 on the digital in's.
I'm concluding there is no way in getting 7.1 over the SPDIF from my HTPC (or any other blue-ray player). Unless, I'm using the analog in's.
However, can a blue ray player encode the two rears into one channel (to arrive at 6.1)?
