The audio is going through the TV before going to the HTiB. The TV doesn't pass DTS via its' optical out is my guess.
Hook the PS3 directly to the HTiB and see what happens.

The TV can't process DTS and will not pass it out the digital port. Very few TVs pass DTS.

Most Panasonic HTIBs process DTS from their own disc players, but not from external sources. If the game can do DD 5.1, try that instead using the direct connection from the PS3 to the sound system.
