I'll say right out front I'm new to surround sound and the PS3. I've done a lot of googling about this problem, tried various settings, and attempted to fix this myself, but I"m just not having any luck.
I have a PS3 and an Onkyo HT-S3300 connected via an HDMI cable.
I have the PS3 set to Linear/PCM for BD/DVD Audio Output Format (HDMI).
My problem is that I don't know what setting I'm supposed to use on my receiver so that I get full 5.1 out of BD and games on the PS3. I don't see the DTS lights or any other indication that 5.1 is active on the receiver display, and I can't determine whether I'm getting true 5.1 in the various modes or some fake attempt at upsampling 5.1 from 2 channels. No matter the mode, the only thing displayed on the receiver is "PCM".
I have the following options for modes on the Onkyo Receiver:

I know this is probably an idiotic problem, but I'm really at a loss and can't find any guides that specifically deal with this receiver and the input from a PS3.
Thanks in advance for your help.
