Found The problem

PowerDVD10 needs to be playing the movie for about 15secs. Then, whilst still playing, go into the sound options tab. On the drop down list all of a sudden is a 3rd output option - output High Definition audio undecoded to external device".
My receiver now shows " DTS HD-MSTR"

Seems stupid that the option is not there unless it detects an HD source. And you have to do it each time you play a BR disc. Not impressed.
