That's my point
and why I was asking based off this post:

That is the first time I've heard of that...not questioning it per say but would like a further explanation of why.
I have always set my PS3Fat to LPCM using the auto-select feature, which checks off every option in the list, including of course DTS, DD, 96, etc.
You are saying it is best to not check off DD or DTS?
Edit: for the record I watch blu-ray exclusively over dvd probably 99-1.

Fact of the matter is, for my PS3 FAT, if I enable DD5.1 and DTS, along with
PCM, select DDHD or DTSHD via the BR audio options both
my PS3 (by hitting display) and my 608 (by reading the front display) will read DD5.1 or DTS. No uncompressed signal is being decoded/fed to the 608.
Disabling 5.1/DTS and allowing PCM output only and selecting the uncompressed audio track options via the BR audio menu and using both displays, shows DTSHD/DDHD via the PS3 display and PCM (set to multichannel) via the 608.
I'm bringing this/discussing it to see if anyone else has to disable these to get the PS3 to output properly.
