I have a panasonic SC-PT850
Not so much an answer more a shared problem with a slight insight.
On the Panasonic manual page 40
It states the following:
This unit can decode the surround signals received through cable TV box, digital broadcasting or satellite broadcasts. Refer to your equipment’s operating instructions for details. Only Dolby Digital and PCM can be played with this connection.
So it sounds like the SA-PT850 unit will decode DTS from an internal source ie DVD but not from an external source ie ps3 or WDTV which is a shame because I own a WDTV. The solution for me is to convert the dts to ac3 (Dolby digital) which works great. But not sure if this is an option for you.

Panasonic BD35 won't play blu ray discs, but will play dvds
You may have come close to what the issue is---Blu Ray for several design reasons is much more critical than DVD---seen a lot with this issue----either a dirty or a failing optical pickup in the unit---I know as when first started seeing it in our shop changed a few and since under warranty found the answer--optical unit was the problem---shortly after that they started just exchanging the cheaper units.
