I have a Yamaha receiver that I used to be able to activate the DTS mode and get sound. The speakers at the time were left and right front/rear speakers with center channel. Connection for audio is toslink optical to. Panasonic blu-Ray player.
Currently I only have the center and front left and right speakers, still using a TOS link connector, but connect to an Xbox 360. When I now activate DTS I do not get any audio. The blu-rays I’m playing have DTS as an option.
Any ideas what I need to change? Is the problem with the Xbox or that fact that I know longer have rear speakers?

Off the top of my head I would say the XBox 360 either doesn't support or isn't properly configured to pass through the DTS stream for your Yamaha to decode. I would comb through the menus and look for relevant settings.

Does the AVR show LPCM instead of DTS? The 360 supports bit streaming of DTS, but it might come through as PCM rather than lighting up the DTS flag. It's been several years since I've had a 360 and I didn't use it for blu-ray playback.

Does your receiver do DTS properly when using your normal blu-ray player?

I'm not sure about DTS needing rear speakers. I don't think that's the case, but?

When I get sound, the AVR shows LPCM. If I select a DTS audio track it goes silent. I will look through settings on the Xbox. I remember seeing related settings on my blu-Ray player, which did allow me to get DTS. I thank you guys for a quick response. I’ll try this after work tonight and report what I find
