is the audio track in dts?

I dont think it plays dts audio.

You can convert the file quickly using mvk2vob and click always transcode dts to ac3.

There might be another way but that method should work

If you are using the dream elite image try installing the beyonce 6 skin. Reportedly fixed the problem for others
