Question Dolby True HD 7.1 Audio on 5.1 Speaker Setup

Hello!

Sorry if i put this thread in a wrong section. But please answer my curiosity.

I've an 5.1 speaker setup and a Dolby True HD supported receiver (Pioneer VSX 323). My question is, If i play Dolby True HD 7.1 audio from a Bluray disc Movie, will it be downgraded to Dolby Digital 5.1 (so it will be lossy)? or it just will be downmixed to 5.1 output (still lossless)?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Lossless 5.1 (the 4 surround channels will be played back by 2 surround speakers).
