I have never heard of such thing :) If they do DTS, they do AC3. AC3
is far more common than DTS too

You may want to check http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/5900

This ticket add an AC3 upmixer, which is configured a bit more
logically: e.g. to get 5.1 passthorugh you set the maximum number of
speakers to 5.1
