Dumb Question

I currently am using a PS3, Pioneer Elite VSX-01 and an Emotiva UPA-7 amp for blue ray watching. This system is set up as a 5.1 system. This past week I watched a couple pf movies that were 7.1 soundtracks, "Punisher" and "The Spirit" that did not give me a 5.1 set up option in the movies menu. To me the sound didn't seem right, it could have just been me. The receiver shows the 7.1 signal coming into it. My question is does the receiver convert it to 5.1 or should I be setting up my system in way to allow 5.1. Thanks!

I assume that if your system is set up as 5.1 it will down convert or up convert any signal to play it as 5.1...

Re: Dumb Question

The receiver will realize you have a 5.1 setup and modify the output accordingly. Make sure you have run the initial calibration of your receiver and verify that it is recognizing your setup as 5.1

Re: Dumb Question

The above posts are correct, your receiver will send the audio information that normally goes to the rear channels (the 6th and 7th channels) and will send them to the side channels.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900
