Default PS3 A/V Setup Help

Hey guys, I am hoping you can all shed light on my questions so I can
A) learn and
B) get the most out of my new setup.

I am getting an Onyko 605 today, replacing a 2 year old yamaha receiver.

I hadnt dont much research on audio until i realized i couldnt really use the TRUEHD/DTSHD audio streams to its fullest extent (and i wasnt sure why i was getting no surround sound in the PCM options in bluray also)

So i searched around and got a million different answers on the settings for PCM/BITSTREAM what the ps3 can and cannot do, if it will be unlocked in future firmwares, etc etc.

So, basically, I am redoing my entire setup today, and I was hoping for some settings advice to get the best sound possible.

Samsung 61" DLP (720p/1080i)
Onkyo 605

Am i going to want to set it to bitstream in the ps3 xmb? is there any reason why id want to turn it back? any info will help and i appreciate it ahead of time, Thanks!

Set it to PCM and let the PS3 decode. It can decode everything except DTS-HD which is only on select Fox movies anyway.
