It does seem like bitstream is supported. Except on Page 66 of the manual under the *1 option where it says
"*1 The secondary and interactive audio may
not be included in the output bitstream if
[Digital Output (SPDIF)] or [HDMI] option
is set to [Primary Pass-Thru]. (Except
LPCM Codec : the output always include
interactive and secondary audio.)"
That is a bit confusing. It seems they are saying on pass through (bitstream) the secondary audio may not be included.
As another side note, based on the manual and the below linked product brochure, the player will internally decode DTS-HD MA but Dolby True HD is output as a 2 channel downmix. That is, if you do not select pass through and then let the player do its own internal decoding (PCM Multi Option).http://www.proaudioinc.com/Dealer_Area/BD530.pdf
From the LG Website, these are the audio options (as it does really seem like bitstream is supported, except for that *1 above)
PCM Stereo can be selected when the Blu-ray player is connected to a device that can only output two-channel digital stereo decoder.
PCM Multi-Ch can be selected when you are connected to a device that has multi-channel digital decoder (HDMI only).
DTS Re-Encode can be selected when you are connected to the unit’s HDMI out or Digital Audio out to a device with the DTS decoder and the audio is transmitted through 5.1channel.
Primary Pass Thru can be selected if the LG Blu-ray is connected using digital audio out and HDMI out jack to a device with LPCM (Linear Pulse Code Modulation), Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True HD, DTS and DTS-HD decoder.
