It appears that DTS-MA has a "core" lossy signal that will go through optical. So, if you just want something that's not a 2-ch mixdown and you don't want to connect HDMI straight to the receiver, it still may be worth using optical, but for the full non-lossy signal, you need HDMI.

Last night, I tested and my receiver did say "DTS-MA" when I connected via optical.

Speaking of games, the thing is just barely powerful enough to do 1080p. Plain old 1080P for @#$@ sake. Nobody expected 4k this gen but 1080p was a min. requirement..
Make that 19,999,999 as I am quite happy with mine.
