Default PS3 Audio questions (bitstream vs Lin. PCM)

Hey,

I have a new receiver that is capable of passing video and audio over HDMI.

In my PS3 BD/DVD settings, should I set it to Linear PCM or bitstream?

If the receiver can take multichannel PCM, definitely set everything on PS3 to output using PCM and in the audio settings enable 5.1 and 7.1 LPCM output.

only reason I ask, is I have the output settings (up to 7.1pcm) enabled under the HDMI audio section. However, under the BD / DVD section, its set to Bitstream over PCM

Now, when I select PCM off a BD disc, my receiver shows PCM on the screen.... so I was wondering if I will even notice a diff if I change it to Linear PCM in the BD / DVD section

If you're selecting PCM as the audio track and setting the AV control panel during playback to PCM then what you're doing is setting the BD audio output temporarily to PCM. I'd just set everything to PCM though.
