Lossless Audio on older Receiver??
I have a 7.1 Surround Sound Setup at home and my receiver is not that old but it does not decode audio via HDMI (even though it does HDMI Switching). It supports all the other codecs and it is even THX certified. I have come to realize I have 2 options, either I get a new receiver (not going to do this) or I use the 7.1 Analog inputs on my receiver and let the standalone player decode the audio. Since I am pretty sure you cannot get lossless audio from Coax or Optical.
My question is this, is this solution any good? Is anyone out there currently using the analog input on their receiver to listen to the new lossless audio formats? I have not bought a standalone yet, I currently just use the 360+Addon+VGA+Optical. But I might consider picking up a Standalone player if it will be a significant boost in sound quality. Also are there currently any movies that have true 7.1 surround tracks?
EDIT: Mods, I made an identical thread to this one in the HD-DVD hardware forum but I thought this would be a better place for it. Please feel free to delete the other thread. Thanks

i agree with the above poster - using a standalone with analog will be a massive improvement.
