Hello all,
First post on the forums. I've searched but didn't find the exact answer I'm looking for. I have a PS3 and a older HTIB Sony receiver. Have always ran audio through optical. Just purchased a Pioneer VSX-1122 receiver and am going to be running 7.1 height. I'm hoping to use the HDMI for audio this go around and was wondering what the best settings would be to use for this setup?

Linear PCM for both games and Bluray. Dolby/dts for games is just compressing the PCM sources to a variant format, introducing loss and delay. Dolby'dts for Bluray removes the ability for source-side mixing.

Linear PCM should be the only HDMI audio format that devices are allowed to spit out, but then marketing got a hold of the standard and made everything confusing and easy to select the wrong option with their silly bitstreaming options.

Thanks. I read that bitstream re-encodes the sound but wasn't sure what feeds the pure signal to the receiver.

Bitstream sends the stream of bits from the disc directly to the receiver. LPCM decodes the signal right on the PS3 then sends the result to the receiver.
