When fed uncompressed PCM or LPCM, it simply displays "Multi-channel" (or something like that). The bottom line is that I cannot tell if the receiver is getting fed LPCM or Uncompressed PCM.

Wes, look at page 66 of your manual (at least that is the page online). It has a table of how the different audio is output if the player is decoding it.
Page 66 says it is decoding DTS Master Audio?
