Checked Xbox 360, Cisco 8742, Sony BDP-S570 (all which work perfectly fine) and still just PCM.
I find it curious that your Xbox is outputting DD/AC3 (it doesnt support DTS output) through the TV set to DTS and being received as DD/AC3 at your receiver somehow. Are you sure you are getting DD/AC3 (certainly not DTS) output to your receiver from your Xbox 360+TV and not some simulated surround mode applied by your receiver?
Also, considering you are using Component to connect your Xbox to your TV (due to your game lag issues), how exactly are you then passing through HDMI audio if you arent using HDMI from the Xbox?
So, I did some more testing and I am confused and wonder if LG even knows what this TV is capable of...
Anyway, I have my XBOX 360 plugged into HDMI3(HDMI1 is the ARC)
I have my sound setting to AUTO. Not PCM.
I can turn ARC off or on, with the same results.
I have an optical cable running out from the TV to my audio receiver.
I do not have any audio cables coming out of the xbox, only the HDMI to the TV.
My audio receiver is getting DD 5.1 when I am on input HDMI3(xbox) it is not getting a DTS signal.
I have the DirecTV receiver on HDMI1(the ARC input)
I only get stereo, whether I select PCM or Auto, and whether I turn ARC on or off.
If I run the DirecTV receiver directly to the audio receiver I get DTS just fine....obviously.
My EZ menu on the TV is on DTS.
