The issue is that not all videos use DTS. Look at the videos that you are trying to play do they support DTS if so make sure that you are selecting the DTS track in the audio setup.

In regards to your receiver if it does not support Dolby Digital then you might want to look at upgrading to a receiver that supports Dolby Digital and DTS if you want true surround on all your videos.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

This seems to be a problem with GT6 that many people have experienced. Maybe stick to 5 or find a way to play Forza.

DVDs have reigon codes. A PS3 sold in the US will only play DVDs and Blu-Rays that have a region code of 1. DVDs sold in Brazil have the region code of 4, so they will not work.

It is either firmware or lens problem. In either case the PS will be replaced or repaired for free by Sony, this is considered factory defect.

Contact Sony at the number listed on the PS manual, or see PS3™ | Support online.

About the lens problem, a BRD device with lens issue may be able to read DVD and CD but not BRD.

1. In the PS3's XMB, go to the left and select Settings.
2. In Settings, go into SoundSettings.
3. Select Audio Output Settings, and select the type of cable you use.
4. The next page will give you an option for Automatic or Manual. Select Manual.
5. The next page will give you a list of all the audio settings the PS3 can output. Unselect every option except the ones grayed out, which are required.
6. The next page will ask you to confirm the selections, say yes.
7. (OPTIONAL) For those using HDMI cables, now that we have set them to default settings, we can actually start the process over again, but instead of selecting Manual we will select Automatic. This will force the PS3 to scan the devices again and set up the correct list of output modes.

try with another HDMI cable.
also, is your ps3 connected to the net? some newer bluray support functions that are not available on the player and they need an update.
given how old the ps3 is, it may not fully support playback.

Go over the instructions at this link carefully http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/connectwireless.html
If the connection still fails after following these instructions, follow the on-screen instructions to check your settings. You may have to get some info from your ISP and refer to the instructions supplied with your router.
