I hooked my PS3 up to a brand new AV Receiver with 5.1 surround yesterday and only discovered today that the rear left and rear right speakers aren't being used at all. I know the speakers work through the AV Receiver because they play the test tone perfectly. However, 5.1 video and games don't ever use them. The input info on the AV Receiver also reveals only channels 3, 2, and 0.1 are being used.
PS3 is connected to AV Receiver via HDMI to Port 1 and this is then connected to the TV. I have the Audio output settings to automatic and have tried various audio settings in the Video Settings.
Is there some setting I'm missing on the PS3, or is there anything else I can try to get this working?

I didn't notice any rear channel use in LoTR: Return of the King on DVD or in a test .wmv file that was encoded at 5.1. It went through the whole 'Front Left' 'Front Right' and all that, but when it did the 'Rear Left' and 'Rear Right' they were played via the front speakers, and could be 'visualised' as between centre and front left, and centre and front right.
