At this point I don't think so.  We're skipping the 2 extra channels
anyway.  Maybe there is real E-AC-3 7.1 content out there somewhere, but
there are no samples I've seen in the wild other than just an HD-DVD
demo and a Blu-ray demo.  It's really not that important until there is
some real content and we can decode it properly.
