Default Audio coming across optical and HDMI

I don't know which update did this, but I am now able to get audio out via HDMI (which I get through my TV) and through the optical out on the PS3 (which I run through my non-HDMI audio receiver). Before this "update", I had to pick one or the other to get the audio, but never both at the same time.

Now this is really weird. I did absolutely nothing, I did not change any settings, and I am back to getting no audio from my HDMI connection, only through the optical out (which I had indicated in the audion set-up of the PS3). It is back to what it used to do before.

I have my PS3 set to output audio through the optical out, and I get audio via HDMI and through the optical out while playing Motorstorm, but only with Motorstorm. Oblivion is the only other game I have, and I don't get audio through the HDMI connection with it or with any of my Blu-ray movies when it's set to optical out.

My guess would be it's because of copy protection. I remember reading in my TV manual that not all audio will get outputted over the TV's digital optical out. It depends on content.
