Default PS3 passing DSD on SACD via HDMI?

I have read in other forums that firmware 1.6 gave the PS3 the ability to pass the DSD stream from SACD over HDMI to your receiver. Well, I have a PS3 running firmware 1.9 connected to an Onkyo tx-sr805 (which does decode DSD) via an HDMI cable and the PS3 set to pass bitstream over HDMI.

Yet the receiver only shows that it is getting PCM, never DSD, and I have tried changing many settings. There is little or no mention of this in the PS3 manual or website and I was hoping someone here may have had experience with this. Thanks!

Does the audio bitmap setting affect bitstream in any way? It's a new setting and I know relativley little about it.

PlayStation3 firmware v1.90 still does DSD to (hi-res) PCM conversion instead of DSD output but Sony has only just last week announced their first AV Receiver with DSD input via HDMI. Perhaps that was the reason for not supporting DSD output yet.

Anyway, there's a dedicated FAQ about PS3's SACD capabilities at PS3SACD.com.
