With the sofa (main seating location) up against the back wall, where do I place the microphone to get the 7th and 8th position measurements?
Use it to 'fill in' around the MLP positions. General info on mic placement here, in the FAQ:

d)3. Where should I position the mic for best results?

I found this in an article which featured an interview with Chris Kyriakakis, Audyssey's CTO and founder:

"The mic should always be placed at a seated listener's ear height and facing the ceiling; it's calibrated to work best that way. The ideal way to position the mic is to place it on a camera tripod. Start in the center position and then move 2 feet to the left of it and then 2 feet to the right. Continuing through the next mic positions move 2 feet forward and take three more measurements in parallel with the first three. If you have Audyssey MultEQ XT, take the seventh and eighth measurements about 1 foot to either side of the center point and slightly forward of it (or behind it, if the couch is not up against the wall)."
