    I get an error message on the xbox dashboard about incompatibility or something to that effect when I try selecting that option.

    I even tried unticking the option for the receiver to decode the audio.

    Because DTS and DD use lossy compression similar to MP3, where parts of the audio that are considered perceptually non-essential are thrown out to save space - it's what DVD's used. Later, with the Blu-ray format, Dolby and DTS introduced higher bitrate lossless encoding in the form of Dolby True HD and DTS Master Audio respectively.

    It can't over optical due to bandwidth limitations, but it can over HDMI no problem. The issue is not the connection but the console. If you select PCM/Uncompressed you're getting the audio as is, direct from the game. If you select the bitstream option you're asking the console to encode all audio into a format your sound system can process. Presumably it's more practical to use the less intensive* DD or DTS for encoding on the fly.

    *DD is 504 kbit/s vs True HD @ 18 Mbit/s
