Err, unless i missed somthing, the PS3 doesn't currently output anything other than bog standard Dolby Digital, DTS and uncompressed PCM. No support for DD+, DTS HD, DD HD or DTS MA.
I own a PS3 and Onkyo 875 and still waiting for the firmware update, so as per the OP, any dates yet?
Your amp will happily accept multi-channel PCM over HDMI. Simply set your PS3 to output PCM rather than bitstream in the BD-audio menu and it will decode Dolby TrueHD and dts HD HRA tracks and pass the HD audio to your amp just fine. As mentioned above it won't currently cope with dts Master Audio - but that is pretty rarely used at the moment anyway and generally only found on Fox discs. It is arguable as to whether it should make any difference the PS3 doing the decoding or your amp - so it is only the MA aspect that is of real concern.
Thankyou for the reply, but i know. I have been listening to PCM sound since i bought the items last September. Perhaps i should have said...."The PS3 does not output any HD sound via bitstream"
Anyways, i am still hoping a firmware update will sort this out as it was speculatively mentioned in WhatHiFI.
