Default Ps3 audio question

I have a question regarding which setting I should use on the audio out option on my PS3...Should I use the linear lpcm or the bitstream option.. I have a Onkyo 605 reciever which supports HDMI audio...Im very interested to listening to the Blu Rays in pcm 5.1 but am curious on what my PS3 should be set to..............thanks

Personally I leave mine on LPCM, because my receiver isn't HDMI 1.3 and I want to make sure I get the full audio stream, rather than the dumbed down 2-channels. But since yours is 1.3 compatible, I don't think it really matters much. Probably would be neat to see the Dolby TrueHD or whatever indicator icon come up on the display, so bitstream might be the way to go, lol.

if you want to listen to the PCM soundtrack (or any lossless soundtrack, like TrueHD), my understanding is that you need to have the ps3's audio out set to linear PCM and pass the audio through a HDMI cable (should not be a problem since you have the 605).

yup. Leaner PCM if you want to have true lossless, otherwise, it will downgrade your audio to 2.0 and then your receiver will upconvert it to Dolby and you will be loosing the true audio
