I saw a list the other day and there were maybe 30 titles on it. Most of the movies were odd choices for 7.1.

How was Transformers 2 not in 7.1?

I am all set up for 7.1 and the options out there are limited thus far. What gives?

It's the same as the market for LCD vs DLP... DLP is better in so many ways, but because the mainstream was sold on LCD, DLP vanished.

Same with 7.1 audio, nobody is pushing it, so nobody is buying it. And studios aren't going to produce 7.1 audio for the few hundred thousand (possibly millions) that have adopted it.

Does it really make that much difference?  I'm honestly curious.

It's not a whole lot more, but it is catching on.
The last couple of SAW films, the Trek series are among a few of the latest 7.1 releases.
I agree with the DLP vs. LCD comment. Best Buy played a huge part.
The profit % was lower on DLP so they would badly calibrate the sets so they did not look as good next to an LCD.
Don't get me wrong. LCD has come along way and I own one. I would rather have a Samsung DLP.

Yeah, Best Buy had all of TWO DLPs when I went in there TV shopping some months ago. Both looks like total shit. Like...RPTV bad. Couldn't have just been calibration, though...I mean, it looked like there was something WRONG with them.

Both Stargate and Ice Age 3 have 7.1

As for Best Buy, you'd be surprised how crappy you can make a good set look.

That's a shame about BB setting up DLP TV's to lose.

And yes, 7.1 does make a huge difference, especially in a bigger room. My room is kinda small as far as living rooms go, and 5.1 would suffice but 7.1 is like getting punched in the mouth as opposed to slapped  by 5.1.
