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


861v4, HD621, power amps, Sonus Faber speakers, Kodi PC (with Libreelec).

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