Sorry if this was brought up already but the last post regarding the subject is quite old, and maybe a software updated solved this.

Can we get 7.1 discrete channel audio from the HD621 to the 861v4?

I know that MMHR permits this in the v6, but the HD621 has 4 digital output SPDIF's and the 861v4 has 8 digital inputs SPDIFs. So hardware is there, does the latest software utilize it?

If not, may I assume that connecting a 4th SPDIF from the HD621 to the 861 is useless?

Thank you all

Yes the 861v4 architecture is only 6ch. Starting with the 861v6 the architecture is 8ch.
