Need more info,

How is your PS4 connected to the receiver? How do you know that you aren't getting 7.1? Do you have the PS4 audio configured for PCM via HDMI?
Ps4 connected to receiver w hdmi. Audio settings on ps4 primary output port= hdmi. Audio format priority= linear pcm. My receiver tells me what format is currently being sent. If it's pcm the speaker icons are lit up for the corresponding channels.

Yeah that sounds correct. Is there a setting in your receiver that isn't selected? I currently don't have a 7.1 setup, but my receiver is receiving 7.1 from the PS4.
Not that I'm aware of I just switched the hdmi cable from my ps3 and put it in my ps4. Without changing any settings I get 7.1 when I switch back to my ps3. What receiver are you using?

I was at Walmart today and while there, I just went to the electronics section and asked the guy there if any Play Station 4's were available. He told me they just got a bunch in last night and they have it.

So, I am now an owner of a PS4. :)

Went and got an extra controller as well. Dual Shock 4..

Does any games come with the unit? I assume no??

I didn't get a bundle pack.

No games are included but if you purchase PlayStation Plus membership they offer some free games with the subscription. Of those free games I highly recommend Resogun. Quite fun and addicting.

Good to know. I will have my new tv and receiver delivered/installed on Friday so will hook up the PS4 to the new reciever which will have an hdmi connected to the tv.

If you hook up the PS4 to the receiver, it can go to any hdmi input, right?

Since unit is not going directly to the tv, don't have to worry about game input or hdmi input, right?

Just connect all components into the receiver such as cable box, PS4, etc…and run one HDMI from the receiver to the tv. Most receivers will allow you to name each HDMI input so it's pretty easy. The receiver will then act as a switcher based upon which HDMI input is selected.

This time went all out and upgraded everything but the kitchen sink.
