6.1 DTS surround on a 5.1 DTS system question

6.1 seemed the only valid search term and I know the engine won't search something that particulate, so please forgive me.

My question is: How does something encoded for 6.1 come through on a 5.1 system. Do you lose a channel? What I mean is: do the side rear speakers transmit what would go into the center rear or is it completely lost?
