CanadianEh - I think this was mentioned but make sure you review all the settings in your PS3 audio. You want to disable anything that might cause the PS3 to decide it should remix the audio signal. That means disabling things like menu sounds, secondary audio, dynamic volume range, etc.

The symptoms you report are typical of when a PS3 or other player is modifying the audio bitstream in some way.

I've experienced where an HDMI system decided a cable wasn't sufficient for 3D, but not for audio.

That's why marketing literature now talks about cables that support HDMI 1.4 features rather than calling them 1.4 cables. Of course, the same old cables you've had for years will support any and all audio outputs from any device you buy.

Sorry I was not understanding what you were saying. I do now. So thank you for setting me straight. I bet you were banging your head against the wall.

So back to my issues. I put in Star Trek (Dolby TrueHD) and the receiver displayed Dolby TrueHD. Testing other blu-rays, it plays and displays what it is supposed to. So my only issue is DTS-MA HD. 7.1 plays as DTS-ES Matrix and 5.1 plays as DTS.

I hooked up an old blu-ray player, Samsung BD-P1600, and it did the same thing. My audio output was set to bitstream and the receiver decodes it as DTS-ES Matrix.

So it must be a setting on the receiver.

It cannot be a setting on the receiver. The AVR merely reports the type of audio the player is sending and it has no control over that. However, given that this is happening with two different players and that TrueHD is sent correctly, it is possible that there's a bug in the AVR software and it is showing the wrong information on the display. Does your PS3 say it is sending the lossless track?

A reset of the AVR may be in order. Sometimes that helps with unexplained problems like this one.

Another, more involved troubleshooting step would be to configure your system as 7.1 and attach the surround speakers to the rear speaker terminals. Then, bitstream a dts-MA 7.1 track and see whether you get sound from the rear speakers. Regular DTS does not support 7.1 and the rears would be silent if the player were actually sending regular DTS as the display reports. (If your system is already 7.1, this would be an easy test.)

You are the man! Just did a factory reset and low and behold, there is my DTS-HD MSTR on the display. Thank you so much to everyone that helped out. I do really appreciate it.
