DTS won't work. Only AC3 files (Dolby Digital).

You will have to have a receiver for DTS. No TV's (as far as I know) has DTS decoder.

Receiver or only stereo sound (ieks  >:()

you will need to recode your DTS files to Dolby ac3 or add a DTS receiver and speakers. 

The second choice will give you full surround sound.

WDTV LIVE with current official FW > HDMI > DVDO > Sony CRT Projector 150" 16/9 screen.  Toslink audio to Yamaha DTS receiver. No Network set up yet.
