All of them will work as far as I know apart from the DTS HD ones.

This is not the case. There have been numerous threads about HDMI 1.3, please read them before giving out the wrong information in future :smashin:

the onkyo decodes the dts master audio.

That statement is correct, however there is currently no-way to get the information to the onkyo for decoding from the ps3..or indeed anything out there at the moment, what you get is 1.5 dts from discs encoded with dts hd (which sounds great though).
:D
