5.1 source on a 7.1 system

If you're playing a 5.1 source on a 7.1 setup, is the best way to proceed by putting the amp on Dolby Pro Logic IIx?
Do you lose something in terms of quality in the conversion of 5.1 discrete channels into 7.1?

Depending upon your AVR, YES.

NO.

In my case it would be the STR-DH770 which has a "PLIIx Movie" setting.

Yep. I use PL IIx Music because on some AVRs you can vary the width of the center (using left and right to augment center).
