7.1 Audio track on a 5.1 channel system?

What happens to the extra two channels if I play a disc with a 7.1 channel surround sound track, but I only have a 5.1 channel receiver/speaker setup?

    Your receiver should mix in the extra to channels into the speakers you do have.  If your receiver can be calibrated, it should sound the best to anyone in the sweet spot.
