Default Surround issues with my PS3 blu-ray

I just bought the Rock, and ive noticed my rear speakers arent working when the movie is on. I chose the uncompressed track and it just has sound up front. I had that problem with Spidey 3, but it turned out it was on Dolby True HD, I switched it to uncompressed and they kicked in.

I'm really confused, are there settings on the PS3 that I need to change?

I'm hooked up with RCA cables to my surround system, it doesnt have HDMI inputs so I cant go that route.

RCA cables meaning just the 2 stereo red and white colored cables? That only gives you stereo or Dolby Pro Logic which isn't the same as Dolby Digital or DTS.

You canīt get more than 2 channel stereo with an ordinary rca cable. You need at least a digital optical cable to your surround system to get dolby digital 5.1, dts, etc.
