I have a VSX 1020 and want to play movies in 7.1. It is setup with 2 back and 2 side speakers, all the Macc test were done and sound comes from all speakers. I also have a new Samsung Bluray but it will not play in 7.1, it automatically defaults to 5.1. I have been trying with the new movie Drive.
Will the receiver play a 5.1 movie in 7.1? I have tried all configurations (I think) of surround/inputs....Does a movie have to be recorded in 7.1 for the VSX to play back in 7.1
Any comments or help would be appreciated
