I'm not sure if this solution is still necessary however:
I own a H/K AVR300 and have a PS3 hooked up via HDMI to the TV and Optical TOSLink to the receiver. I have no troubles selecting between DD 5.1 and DTS 5.1. I can even select trueHD whatever format but I can't detect an audible difference, I think that mode might be downgraded back to regular DD5.1...
Hope this helps...

Hello, I didn't end up fixing the Blu-ray issue, but the TV issue was caused by just inverting the positive and negative cable going into my speaker. Odd enough, instead of just not working, it just flipped the entire system off. I can definitely see that that could be the issue, another one I thought of is, at the time I didn't realize that DVI doesn't play audio, only video and I didn't have a optical cable connected. I decided to avoid the hassle, sell the TV and purchased one that has HDMI. Muuuuch better.

It will only display via component. Your HDMI firmware is either 1.1 or 1.2 and has HDCP issues (High Definition Copyright Protection) it's a firmware problem that has been fixed on all new receivers, not just a HK issue, all receivers! the new version 1.3a and 1.3b have fixed the issue. Unfortunately you cannot update the firmware on the receiver. Hope this explains it for you, sorry! Lot's of angry people out there!!! myself included.

Yes, although it (AVR) does not support HDMI only component video.
Connect the audio to the receiver and the video directly to the TV if you have inadequate video inputs, or want to take advantage of the HDMI.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If the AVR's video output resolution
is set higher than the capabilities of the actual connection,
you will not see a picture. If the best available video connection
from the AVR to the TV is composite video, press this button
and change the resolution to 480i.
