Just found this in the small print. Essentially no HD audio if you play a 3D disk:
(Wonder if it's related to bandwidth over a standard hdmi cable perhaps?)

In addition, when Dolby TrueHD is selected as the audio format, audio will be output in Dolby Digital during playback of Blu-ray 3D content.
Last but not least, when DTS-HD is selected as the audio format, audio will be output in DTS during playback of Blu-ray 3D content.

Considering there is only like 5? (or less in NZ) 3D Bluray movies out I would have to guess that the one you have is faulty maybe?

Would that be to do with HDMI cables needing to have HDMI1.4a for supporting all the lossless audio like DTS-HD MSTR & DD TrueHD for 3D content etc.

In other words a standard (cheap) HDMI cable won't do the job?

need to make sure you have cat 2 high speed cables.
From wikipedia
" HDMI 1.3 defines two cable categories: Category 1-certified cables, which have been tested at 74.5 MHz (which would include resolutions such as 720p60 and 1080i60), and Category 2-certified cables, which have been tested at 340 MHz (which would include resolutions such as 1080p60 and 2160p30).[54][58][59] Category 1 HDMI cables are to be marketed as "Standard" and Category 2 HDMI cables as "High Speed. Many HDMI cables under 5 meters of length that were made before the HDMI 1.3 specification can work as Category 2 cables, but only Category 2-tested cables are guaranteed to work"

Also, "With version 1.3, HDMI supports lossless compressed audio streams Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. High Speed HDMI 1.3 cables can support all HDMI 1.4 features except for the HDMI Ethernet Channel"

So I would dare suggest you need to get a certified v1.3 high speed cable

But that doesn't fix the problem with the PS3 not being able to read the Bluray disk at all.
