I have a Sony STR-dg 820 HDMI reciever. I am using my PS3 for bluray and games etc hooked up via HDMI. Now my question is should my PS3 be set to PCM or bitstream? All I know is this...

Selecting PCM on the PS3 lets the PS3 do the decoding.

Selecting BITSTREAM lets the reciever do the decoding.


What do I choose?

It doesnt matter if you are talking Bluray. The PS3 cant send any of the BD HD audio codecs via bitstream anyway. Pick PCM. Now if you are talkin DVD. Read the thread Confidenceman linked too.
