HT-s3305 hdmi 5.1

Hi there,
I've recently purchased my Onkyo set, and after getting me some (too cheap?) HDMI cables I was ready to try my first movie. My bluray player was connected to my receiver, my receiver to my tv, all by HDMI, but I'm not sure whether I'm getting the most out of my audio.
When playing a movie, I can shuffle trough listening modes Direct, Mono, Stereo, PLII Movie and such, but no Dolby or DTS are available. I'm guessing this means the receiver is not getting any 5.1 input?
But can HDMI transfer this awesome sounds, or do i need something else?
Thanks in advance.

Pressing the display button on the remote (top right) will show you what audio format the Onkyo is receiving.

The Dolby logo should show in red on the Onkyo display and also any variant ie TrueHD

Yes it can, I'd check your Blu-ray Player is outputting 'bitstream'
