    Was wondering if you playback a movie in 5.1 or 7.1 and it´s downmixed to stereo on 2.1 system, is the LFE channel missing, Playing only 2.0?

    As long as the system setting is for a 2.1 speaker combination the LFE channel will be present and directed to the 0.1(point one) subwoofer. By "down mix" I'm assuming you just have the settings set to *NO* for all speakers except the main L/R?
