Stereo or multichannel? If you are getting stereo, it's likely being caused by the HDMI handshake with the TV. TVs are 2 channel devices and may tell the player to decode the track and downmix it to stereo. Most receivers have a setting that disables the HDMI audio output to the TV.
If you are getting multichannel, that would likely mean you hzve set your players to output PCM. Bitstream is the proper setting to feed encoded audio to your receiver. btw, if you have an older "fat" PS3, it cannot bitstream lossless audio. Another btw: the quality of the lossless audio is the same when decoded in the player for PCM output and when decoded in the receiver.
Again, it is not possible for a cable to cause the problem you describe. Not possible.
