Default Optical out on a PS3 to my old sony 5.1 reciever help!

Just bought a ps3 for blu-ray and I don't have an hdmi reciever. I do however have an old sony 2002 5.1 digital dts,dd reciever that will accept a pcm signal via toslink optical out. If I set it to lpcm on my ps3 will I recieve DTS-MA, True HD, and DTS-HD via the toslink out or do I have to purchase a new reciever with hdmi 1.3. Any help would be great as I would rather not upgrade my reciever until the price of the DTS-MA decoding ones come down by a few hundred bucks.

You have to buy a new receiver.

You can get 2.0 LPCM through the toslink.

If you want 5.1, you'll have to settle with bitstreaming legacy tracks or getting a new reciever.
