Does your reciever have a 5.1/7.1 analog input? If so you can get an older DVD player that supports DVD-A (panasonic XP30, XP50 and RP82 are all nice) to get lossless DVD-A. This is what I am currently using until I get around to getting the Oppo BDP-83 blu-ray player.

If you were able to play the DVD-Audio content you would also be able to listen to the PT disc's multichannel lossless content (so the answer to your last question is yes).

to add to that, a lot of times (all the time?), the extra tracks on PT discs are only available on the DVD-A layer in surround (no stereo or DTS). for example if its Deadwing there's 3 extra tracks + an easter egg (shesmovedon)
I know the DTS tracks sound reasonably good, but if you compare the bandwidth - DTS at 1.5Mbps, MLP at ~9Mbps ... you can see how much information is lost

There's complicated ways for transcoding DVD-A to a BD (and then you can play the "lossless" on your PS3), but you're probably not interested in that...
