do you have the audio setting in the ps3 set to hdmi or optical? i had the same prob with mine and when i switched it to optical it fixed the prob. you won't get the lossless sound from the blu rays but you can still get dolby 5.1 & DTS 5.1

Why does 5.1 only work bitstream, and how can you get uncompressed 5.1 ...?

Because Toslink (optical) can only support 2ch of uncompressed audio. To get 5.1 from via toslink your receiver needs to matrix it. 5.1 Uncompressed. only via HDMI thats 6ch of uncompressed audio at 4-6Mbps Toslink just cant support that.
