If your output is set to bitstream, and it doesn't play the dts track, when you choose that track in the movie's menus, It may not be capable of playing in dts.
But movies that have a dts track, also have a Dolby Digital track. You said that works. Some people prefer DD over dts. I, personally, USUALLY prefer the dts track.
Good luck!

Thank You Ed Moxley for the reply..
But i am very new to thease techniques and would like to learn

In the manual of DV55 i gort following lines if possible can you please explain

DOLBY DIGITAL/PCM: Select “DOLBY DIGITAL/PCM” if
an active digital output is supplied to a Dolby Digital decoder,
(or an amplifier or other equipment with Dolby Digital
decoder).
Stream/PCM: Select “Stream/PCM” if an active
digital output is supplied to an amplifier or other
equipment with Dolby Digital decoder and MPEG decoder.
PCM: Select “PCM” if an active digital output is
supplied to an amplifier or other equipment with linear PCM
only (or MD recorder or DAT deck).

You put setting to Dolby Digital or bitstream, if you want the receiver to do the processing for Dolby Digital.
You put the setting to PCM if your dvd player is gonna do the processing (I think this is right). Usually the receiver's processor does a better job, but some older receivers didn't process the DD signal, so the dvd player had to. Otherwise you just get a stereo signal, which you get simulated surround, if receiver has Pro Logic processing.
This is a little confusing at times. Maybe someone that is better at explaining stuff, will chime in........
