    My reciever will support the THX seven speaker system ( curently using the conventional 5.1, 5 speaker set-up). Can I add two more speakers and will the two L/R & two R/R's produce sound in the 5.1 mode? If not how can I make this happen with a seven speaker system? Thanks in advance.

    Yes and yes. There is a mode that allows you to activate the rear surrounds with 5.1 material. When I had a Pioneer I used it almost exclusively.

    You can also use the THX Ultra 2 mode to extract rear center channel information from 5.1 soundtracks. I use this mode quite often on my 47TX. Also, Neo:6 will extract rear center information from Dolby Surround (two-channel matrix) encoded material -- sort of a 7.1 version of Dolby Pro Logic II. Dolby now has Pro Logic IIx which does the same thing, but that format is not available on the 47TX.
