Reread my post, I was referring to DTS-HDMA (Lossless DTS-HD Master Audio) above, which PS3 cannot do now and no plans to decode it have been announced. Right now PS3 can only do the lossy core of DTS-HD, it can't do DTS-HDMA Lossless decoding and it can't pass it bitstream either.

While they are both lossless codecs, DTS-HDMA is different than TrueHD (which is a Dolby product). DTS-HDMA is used quite a bit by Fox while Warner and Sony use TrueHD.
