Ok, I just went downstairs and 'fiddled' with it a bit. Here is where I'm at right now:
The PS3 settings are correct as far as everything is set to "Auto" (BD/DVD Dynamic Range, Video Output Format (HDMI), etc), and the BD/DVD Audio output Format (HDMI) is set to Linear PCM.
Then on the Onkyo, I went "Setup" ---> 5. Listening Mode Preset ---> "Aux 2" (which is the PS3) ---> all the modes are defaulted to "Last Valid".
Everything from Analog/PCM down thru DSD and everything in between is set to "Last Valid". Talk about a bit overwhelming...umm...
So the Mulichannel PCM is what is output from the PS3 to the Onkyo (which is the TrueHD, right?)...so that's the 'mode' that I need to configure on the Onkyo. Ok, so which of the choices is it that is the TrueHD (or the uncompressed digital PCM)?
Neural THX 5:1
PLII THX Cin
Neo:6 THX Cin

I'm going to go try and read up on all this myself, but if anyone can throw me a bone here, I'd greatly appreciate it.
And hopefully, lastly, is there any way to change the remote so that it doesn't have to be pointed DIRECTLY @ the Onkyo to get it to work? Thanks again.
