Default PS3 and the Onkyo 605

A friend of mine just got the PS3 and has the Onkyo 605. I borrowed him a few blu-Rays with DTS-HD MA tracks so he could hear what it sounds like. The only problem is, I know nothing about the PS3 and its audio settings or how to get the PS3 to send the audio information to the Onkyo so it can decode DTS-HD MA.

To my knowledge, the PS3 won't decode DTS-HS MA, but the Onkyo will. anyone have a step by step as to how to get the good stuff out of the PS3? He has HDMI, or Optical, or whatever is needed.

He says thanks!!

DTS-HDMA from the PS3 is still a no-go. If you have BD's with 5.1 PCM or Dolby TrueHD, PS3 can output those as multichannel PCM to the 605.

PS3 wonīt decode DTS-HD MA as you said. The thing is it also cannot bitstream it to a receiver capable of decoding it.

Lotīs of threads with this info if you search a bit.

Good concept, but it won't work. That's like saying the PS3 will send a SD signal via hdmi to the 605 and have the 605 upscale it to 1080. I wouldn't worry too much. A firmware upgrade is bound to include DTSHD decoding.
