Can all modern 7.1 receivers work simply in 6.1?
Sapkan - Yes they will only decode 6.1 (DD-EX or DTS ES)as there is not a format that supports 7.1 yet even though amps are quoted to have 7.1 it splits the signal for the 6.1 and feeds it thru the 2 rear speakers in mono.
If you are just wanting to connect a rear centre then you can and usually one of the speaker outputs for the back rears will be labelled up to take priority for the 1 speaker..
makes sense now, thank you John
