Jaxson: Hi all,
Just to report back, I plugged in the Onkyo last night, watched Kungfu Panda with the wife. Has a Dolby True HD soundtrack.
Onkyo 576 works flippen amazingly great.
No other way to say it.
Just set PS3 to decode to PCM and receiver lights up with 7.1 or 5.1 lpcm input lights and shows the sample rate too, awesome.
Interface is on the unit only, no video out but this is fine as it's actually really easy to configure from there.
Remote also works on my Philips HDD recorder and Samsung TV, great...
Cool. And now you make feel guilty for not having installed mine yet :-(
I think my connections might be a bit trickier since I need to wire in 3 HDMI connections and also repropram a Harmony 880 remote which is one of the reasons I have been holding off. But your experiences have got me motivated now!
