codec 'dfs'

If I recall correctly, you will need a decoder for dts.  I for instance have a 
dolby suround decoder, which is connected to my soundcard's digital out.  The 
connection is made with a 30€ coaxial cable.  And, in order for this to work, 
you must choose the option "pass thru" in xine's (or mplayer, or ....) audio 
config. Even then, you'll beter of if you choose the THX sound instead of the 
dts version (dvd language menu).

So, unless you have all that equipment, I suggest you configure your player to 
output stereo sound, and to select the normal version of the film.
