Default Help needed with audio settings.

I'm currently using a PS3 and a Panasonic SA-HT900 for audio, using an optical cable. The thing is I can't get the "Master Audio" setting to work, regular dolby digital 5.1 works fine.
The funny thing is Dolby Digital TrueHD, and Dolby Digital Plus works fine with my HD DVD player, but its counterpart won't work on the PS3.
This is extremely annoying, because I just bought the Die Hard Collection, and Die Hard 1-3 only had the Master Audio tracks that won't work, not regular 5.1 audio. Any help would be extremely appreciated, thanks.

Can your receiver decode DTS?

Just saw on another thread about setting the PS3 to bitstream. Is this how yours is setup?

Not at all, thank you very much for helping me, I have all the outputs checked as my system is capable of handling them all.
I have changed it to output in each specific type and still no luck.
Thanks

Digging a little further saw some posts on the PS3 EU site where some individuals are not getting DTS and the fix was to unselect DTS under output and make sure Dolby Digital 5.1 was selected and they were able to get audio out from DTS tracks.

No still doesn't work I have selected all the outputs individually. And nothing changes, still can't output in the master HD mode, it's really annoying because there is a French 5.1 track which works fine, but it's in a difference language!

I had heard there was a problem with some of the Die Hard sets regarding DTS. You might want to do a search. I think there's a thread for it.
