My panny BD player is setup to bitstream to my receiver but it alsosends the menu sounds... swooshes and all. My AVR (Marantz 8002) tells me when the source is sending PCM or it's internally decoding a codec and exactly what it's decoding.

I guess that might be why sometimes I see sound coming as "pcm" instead of bitstream from the BD player. I have a little PCM led on the AVR that tells me and sometimes it's activated while navigating discs... I didn't even realize it was a kind of inconsistency. I must have that setup to dynamically switch in the BD player.

I must admit it was one happy day for me the first time I saw that DTS HD MA led config come up on my AVR. I had waited so long to see it.
