Anyone know if the LE5400 series will pass full DTS and AC3 through the optical port? Right now I have my HTPC connected to my Pioneer VSX 1020K via HDMI, and then receiver to TV by HDMI, which works fine, but I'm having issues with the AVR passing 24 fps content, plus I have to have the receiver on in order to watch anything on XBMC because the receiver doesn't support standby passthrough (the new model does though....of course).
So my only other option would be HTPC to TV via HDMI, and then passing the audio through to the receiver over the optical out. This is how my XBox 360 and cable box are working, I just don't want to lose any audio abilities or have to transcode and remux the audio on my files to something the television will pass. Most of my HD files are h.264 encoded with DTS 5.1 and 7.1 audio in MKV containers.
