Looks good! 6.1 PCM. I'm assuming if I have an HDMI connection from the Samsung to my receiver it will pass all the channels?

Lionsgate Goes BD-50 with 'Descent'
Quote:
"Lionsgate has become the latest studio to jump on the BD-50 bandwagon, announcing their first 50GB dual-layer Blu-ray release with 'The Descent.'

...the cult horror flick will hit Blu-ray on December 26...

Tech specs include the film's 99-minute Unrated Cut presented in 1080p/MPEG-2 video, plus both an uncompressed PCM 6.1 surround and standard Dolby Digital 5.1 surround tracks..... two audio commentaries, deleted and extended scenes, a documentary, multiple still galleries and trailers.

And in a first for the Blu-ray format, 'The Descent' will also boast exclusive HD content in the form of a new picture-in-picture interactive commentary..."
