If I use an HDMI connection between a DVD player and my Sony KDF-42WE655 and the audio is 5.1, then what do I hear thru the TV speakers? Will it be just L&R channels or will the TV downmix the 5.1 to 2 channels?

Good information - I'll check my TV manual. I assumed that it would downmix the 5.1 - after all, the TV has a DD decoder.
