Can LPCM/Dolby TrueHD/Dolby Digital Plus/DTS-HD MA 7.1 downconverts to 6.1

or does it have to be 5.1? I can't test it since I have 7.1. Does the stereo from

surround back play as mono for 6.1? Any help will be appreciated

From what I understand, the 2 back surround channels are combined for playback in a 6.1 setup, provided you've correctly set the menu options in your AVR.


For 5.1, I believe that the back surround channels are simply not played back.

Depends entirely on the settings that were made in the 7.1 to 5.1 downmix parameters.

In DTS-HD Master Audio, you have full control when encoding as to how a 7.1 will play back on a 5.1

Often, there will be no Cs channel at all, as in ES/EX modes this is either discrete or derived from summing Ls/Rs and tak9ing the mono, centrally panned component.


In short - it varies.
