anyway to get Laptop bluray player to play audio to TV when is DTS only?

I don't know if I should post here or home theater etc. What I want to do (really for someone else, I have a receiver etc) is to connect a laptop to a tv (via HDMI?) and be able to get audio that is only coded with DTS like many blus are. Other audio sounds ok but no DTS audio. there is no DTS audio in the laptop is this right? Is a sony VAIO don't know the model.

would an external soundcard do the trick. something like this:

they have other similar ones but I'm not sure what the differences are nor if its even what I need.

From what I can find, the problem may be that the blu-ray software on the laptop isn't decoding DTS. You may need to upgrade to the pro version of the software to get DTS decoding, or use a different software:

Once the software can decode DTS, it can pass it as stereo PCM to the TV over HDMI.

thanks. i've been going back and forth for weeks trying to figure it out. I'll share with my friend and see if a different software will do the trick.

It would help if you tell us what software you're using for playback. It probably has an option to decode the DTS signal and pass it as LPCM.
