5.1 recording is being added to the top-of-the-range Philips model released in the US. Whether we will get it here (along with the HDMI connection) hasn't been announced yet. Hopefully we will - although the general consensus among the industry seems to be that the UK doesn't have sufficient suitable sources to make it worthwhile. I would disagree given the amount of Freeview and Sky+ boxes there are now...

5.1 recording is going to be of most interest to those who record alot of movies from Sky+. Although it will (obviously) offer a sound improvement for standard broadcasts as well I'm not convinced it's something to make one urgently upgrade for. Especially as virtually all such transmitted movies are available on commercial DVD with somewhat better quality soundtracks anyway.
