I assume looking at that that either my Receiver doesn't show an HD logo, OR my GPU isn't bitstreaming properly?

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.
