YAMAHA DSPAX761 - Please look in

I am seriously considering a second hand purchase of this baby but admit to not keeping up on HD sound jargon, compatability, etc.

All I want to know is what HD sound formats can I get with my set up which consists of

EP-30 HD DVD Player

if I hook them up to the Yamaha via HDMI?

Any advice/comments greatly appreciated.

From the PS3 - All inc. HD formats
From the EP30 - The usual DD5.1, DTS and Dolby True HD, DD+ and the DTS HD core only

Both can't bitstream HD audio, so the 761 is ideal in that it supports LPCM

There is a handy audio guide here
