They mean that they haven't yet succeeded in getting TrueHD and DTS-HD over HDMI.
Just as a matter of interest, if you fire up something like speaker-test or aplay, can you demand all 8 channels of audio?
And if you do so do you get sound from all 8 attached speakers?
No, because I only have six speakers attached;-)
