You can't get 5.1 or 7.1 PCM through Optical; when you set it to PCM you'll only get 2.0 (which your receiver may be expanding using Pro Logic). Optical is really only useful for bitstream.

As for HDMI, make sure that you've gone through the HDMI audio detection process on the PS3. There will be a screen that shows all formats that your HDMI receiver claims it is capable of.

Did you manually tick them or were they already ticked by default after the "auto" process? Because you shouldn't have had to do anything manually.

Ensure the HDMI Audio Out feature on your receiver is set to "off".
