Haven't really seen this discussed anywhere, do any of the new ps4/xboxone games have 7.1 HD audio formats? On the last gen only certain PS3 games had 7.1 support

Also, for the best sound you must use HDMI, and leave it as uncompressed. Once you use DTS our DD you are using a lossy format, the Xbox does the decoding instead of the receiver, so no DTS or DD lights on the receiver. On denon it will say multi in.

Dan Greenwalt the creative director for turn 10 mentioned in an interview that Forza 5 supports 7.1.
Not sure what other games do tho.
