Yes, that because TruedHD is already decoded by XBMC to PCM. If it bitstreaming un-molested TrueHD, you will see TrueHD on your AVR display.

This is why I always tell people to clearly make a list of what they want to achieve before they buy it.

If you really want to achieve bitstreaming, GT430 will allow you to achieve it.

I did the auto setup on my VSX 53 and everything sounds good. I am wondering if the speakers are getting overblown and that is why the wireless receiver is cutting them off. Do you have experience in this?
I helped a family friend installed a wireless surround speakers. It works fine. Did you perform the Audyssey calibration with it? Or maybe, your wireless speakers are set to cut off at certain ranges.
