WDTV does not support the DTS 5.1 , you need somthing that can play this format (using a toslink cable)


Convert the audio to ac3 and remux the mkv file. Theres a program that will do this fully automated called  PopCorn Mkv AudioConverter. (just do a google search, its freeware)

It works great for me :)
