confusion about the new HD audio formats

This is still confusing me. I posted a question in a thread farther down about my A2 sending the TrueHD audio to my Onkyo and received the answer I wanted but now I have a brand new Samsung BD P1400 BluRay player and I understand that it does send the TruHD and DTSHD directly over HDMI.
My question is what setting do I use on the Samsung (do I still use bitstream) and Onkyo 805, is it Multichannel or do I use TrueHD and DTS HD? The manual is not very clear on this.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

You will want Bitstream, not Multichannel (linear PCM), over HDMI 1.3 for your new case, in order to get the best performing audio. Sorry don't have either piece of equipment -- so can't help with reading the manuals.

With High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI™ version 1.3), a single cable transfers the full power of the Blu-ray Disc Player’s high-definition video and audio signal to your HDTV and other digital devices. Version 1.3, standard in the BD-P1400, transfers deeper color and higher resolution, and handles the new, compressed audio formats.
