When playing a movie with DTS-HD converted to pcm, your receiver's display says 192 khz? I'm not sure how that can be unless you are upsampling the audio since a majority of the tracks are 48/24. I think there are a few concert blu-rays that have 96/24 and 194/24 streams.
PowerDVD states that the track is DTS-HD MA, not what is being output to your receiver. If your receiver doesn't light up with DTS-HD or TrueHD, that would lead me to believe you are unable to bitstream HD audio to your receiver.
Which receiver are you using?
