Since the 3D signal never saw the AVR it never was a problem. This is the only way it could work, as a 1.3 AVR will not pass a 1.4 3D signal; so just bypass it.
I understand this setup doesn't make sense for normal listening, as you lose all loss-less formats, but Nervebag misunderstood how to set up his sound system, and his mistake is now an interesting work-around.
Correction- I'm going by NerveBag's first statement :"I have a PS3 going into the 100s, then into my 67A670. The audio goes out from my TV and into my Onkyo TX-SR505 via optical cable. All the audio was fine with that setup."
Another later statement contradicts this and, to me, seems implausible: "I have HDMI from PS3 to the Onkyo, then from the Onkyo to the adapter, then from the adapter to the TV. Then I have TOSLINK from the TV's audio out to the AVR's in. Doesn't that show that the 5.1 is getting through the entire chain? No?"
NerveBag, time to clarify.
