I haven't noticed this problem in my setup. I also have a 3806. But I run my 1080P output from my PS3 to a Connectgear HDMI splitter and send one output to my 3806 for audio and one to my VP 50 for video.

Don't know if it is related, but once I was watching the beginning of 'Blazing Saddles' and noticed I was only hearing the music - no singing. I then realized my center channel had cut out and I had to adjust the wiring on it. So there are some parts of some discs where voices are only encoded on the center channel.

First thing, if your listening to PCM your gonna have to change your HDMI output to PCM. The one problem I don't like abot the PS3 is when you have HDMI set to PCM and watch a DD/DTS encoded DVD or BD the PS3 does the decoding and sends it to your receiver as PCM. I hope in a future firmware they add HDMI auto like the Toshiba HD DVD players, where it would know when to output PCM and bitstream according to disc.

I looked at the Denon 3806 front panel and it said multi-channel direct and had the little lights for 5.1 channels, so I don't think it was the receiver doing it. The PS3 is outputing 5.1 channels, just null signal for center and surrounds.
I DO have the HDMI audio output set to Bitstream. If I change this to Linear PCM, will I still get the regular DTS-ES 6.1 Discrete from some of the Paramount Blu-ray Discs that are encoded in that? I should get linear 6.1 PCM from these and not drop to 5.1, right?
