Instead of Dolby TrueHD / DTS-HD the AVR only displays multichannel PCM?

When I play a movie from a Blu-ray disc, the "Dolby TrueHD" does not display on the front panel of the receiver, all that appears on the screen of my Onkyo receiver is "multichannel PCM".

Why does this happen?

For the Onkyo AV receiver to process the lossless HD audio soundtracks it needs to “see” a Bitstream signal from the Blu-ray player.

You will need to make sure that the output settings in the BD player are set for ‘Bitstream’ and not PCM. Only then will the correct signal will be outputted for the Onkyo AV Receiver to process.

Please note that this is not possible for all devices (eg Sony PS-3 older FAT version.
