Default a3 audio problems

Hi ..this is my first post on these forums. I Can't seem to get the dolby true hd option to work on the a-3, i have the onkyo 875 reciever,no matter what i try it defaults to pcm..i also own the panasonic bd30 hooked up the same exact way(HDMI) that works flawlessly. Am i doing something wrong i didn't want to invest into a more expensive hd dvd unit until i see how the hd war turns out..thanks in advace for any help

The A3 cannot bitstream the TrueHD track to your receiver for decoding. It can only decode it in the player and send PCM over the HDMI interface.

Only the XA2 and A35 can bitstream the high bit rate audio tracks to your receiver for decoding. Apparently bitstreaming high bit rate audio requires HDMI 1.3 which only the XA2 and A35 have.
