Well, any receiver with HDMI *should* do multi channel PCM, as that is a very trivial and royalty free feature to add, but sadly there are HDMI receivers which do not do this.

This is one of those things where if the average consumer doesn't know what it is, then lots of equipment out there simply doesn't have it. It's like 1080p TV's, which do display 1080p, but they only take a 1080i input at most.

Sad, I know.
