LOL...I've had 5.1 with DVDs for the past 15 years!

You do know this is the year 2010!

5.1 is enough for me - besides I couldn't fit the extra 2 speakers in my current living room layout.

I'm more than happy with the quality increase of the likes of Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio from Blu-Rays over DVDs.

nope, well "Hurt Locker" but no Swedish release date yet.

Popped into the local Hemmakv„ll yesterday and it seems BD rentals are the same cost as DVD, so it seems.

Hurt Locker was by Summit Entertainment and I'm quite confident you won't be able to get this in 7.1. This studio still lives in the dark ages and has yet to release a 7.1 Blu ray on any of there releases.

Its not even available in the US.

I thought it could be something of interest, I haven't seen
the film, so I couldn't recommend it.
Following my series of complaints etc, I'm just happy to see Lionsgate
actually doing something to help us with UK blu-ray users. Hopefully all other blu-ray distributors will
follow suit to ensure we get value for money in the UK.

New-Line dropped the US only 7.1 DTS, in favour for a global 6.1 DTS release. I watched all three, the first was a little disappointing, but 2 and 3 made it up with a really good audio codecs/scores.
