Your AVR handles HD audio via HDMI, so you should set the player to Bistream Audiophile and let the AVR decode those HD audio formats. See the following FAQ - HD audio near the end.

Depending on the BD player, there may be other settings which need to be set appropriately, for example on some SAP needs to be turned off, etc. Also, I've found that there can be issues with Pioneer AVRs and HDMI if the AVR is not turned on first. When you have a disc with TrueHD or DTS-MA, that should display on the AVR.

When using HDMI, the TrueHD and DTS-MA are also raw, uncompressed. Regular DD5.1 and DTS are compressed. Regarding multi-channel PCM or TrueHD, the decision then becomes do you wish the BD Player or the AVR to do the decoding. The AVR is usually better at it and also you can then see confirmation of the appropriate stream (TrueHD or DTS-MA) on the AVR display, assuming one of those streams is on the BD.
