I think that you are out of luck as the table shows on page 62 of your manual at http://www.docs.sony.com/release/BDPS350_US.pdf
Note 1 on this table says "When Audio Output Priority is set to stereo analog, LPCM 2ch signals are output from each jack. I would check this setting. I would also check out notes 2 and 4. According to their own table, the player should output bitstream in 5.1 D or DTS.
Out on http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1046952&page=3 it appears that another person is having the same issue and someone recommended this:

Thanks for the suggestions but I am all out of luck hearing any true multi-channel from the new audio formats - I've gotten a plethora of advice and tried virtually all the permutations possible and all of the suggested changes in settings that didn't result in no sound at all, were decoded mostly as PCM (46kHz) on the receiver's screen and played as 2 channel sound (no blue light designating multi-channel decoding). So I guess I'll just have to watch my Dolby Digital 5.1 Blu-ray Dark Knight over and over which works just fine, and reset the Blu-ray player's audio everytime I want to hear any of the newer formats - in 2 channel enhanced by my receiver's fake surround sound modes (or buy a new 7.1 receiver).
The Blu-ray Dark Knight DVD has Dolby TrueHD 5.1 and Dolby Digital 5.1 audio and I guess my receiver is automatically decoding the older Dolby Digital 5.1 multi-channel audio version. The Blu-ray Narnia DVD only has English in DTS-HD 7.1. Why wouldn't this DVD (and all Blu-ray DVDs) also have old Dolby 5.1 English, since they have 5.1 in French, Spanish, Hebrew and Chinese included on the disc!
