Default What audio setting on receiver when watching HD/BD movies?

My setup is a 47 inch 1080p LCD TV. My theater is an Onkyo SR705 and HT-540 7.1 speakers. Everything is run through HDMI.

My main question is when I play a BluRay movie such as Crank, which runs PCM Linear 6.1, which mode should I set my receiver too? Certain modes didn't appear to give me 6.1/7.1 surround sound. I put the settings on THX Select 2 Cinema which sounded awesome but I don't know if that is the best choice.

That sounds like the correct choice.

Isn't that altering the PCM signal from the player? Is there a "best experience" when it comes to audio receivers, or is it user preference? I just want to make sure I'm getting the best I can out of my equipment.

Default Just my opinion

Hi all, well is set to PCM, not unless I notice the NEED to change something, and just crank it to the point that you can feel the "BOOM" in your gut.

So do you recommend to set the receiver to direct or pure audio to allow the PCM stream or TrueHD stream to come through uncompromised?
