Problems using DTS

I recently bought an Onkyo HTS 770. Whenever I try to play DTS I hear no sound. Why is that? I can use Dolby Digital EX but no DTS. I loaded up Gangs of New York and it does have DTS track but I could hear no sound.

Whenever I try to go to the 'audio adjust' in my receiver, I can only select Dolby, there is no DTS.

With my DVD player I have the option of the following Digital Sound output:

Dolby Digital/PCM
PCM
Stream

Sample frequency:
48 KHz
96 Khz

Which option should I choose? I'm new to this and I don't understand what PCM and those frequencies are for.

Any help?

I'm assuming you've got your DVD player hooked up to your receiver through a digital connection (coax or optical). You want to select the Stream option on your DVD player (the sample frequency shouldn't matter with Stream selected). This outputs the DD or DTS bitstream through the digital connection, to be decoded by your receiver. Workee?

Then you also HAVE to choose the dts track, in the movie's audio setup menu or Language menu. It doesn't automatically go to a dts soundtrack. :-)

Natch! Of course I didn't mention this, but figured Ricardo would figure it out. He responded (to a different DTS related thread (!?)) saying he got it going.
