Thanx Jeff. Since I have less than a dozen 7.1 titles, discrete 7.1 input is not as big a deal for me as HDMI connectivity or room correction was.
Still, I'm surprised how much they can squeeze out of the ol' girl. Upon release, it could only input 1080i/60 and 5.1 PCM. Last summer they gave us 1080p/24/50/60 and this year we got 7.1 PCM.
Who knows, if they delay their next platform any longer, we may end up with PLIIz height channels. Heh.
