You cannot cure it. Simple answer is that the SCPT560 does not handle DTS from an external source. Best you can do is send DTS as simple stereo and use Dolby ProLogic on the 560.

If you are looking to upgrade your sound system then do yourself a huge favour and look at separates that way.

1. You can upgrade the part you want and not the whole system.
2. You get better sound quality.
3. One part fails you do not end up throwing the lot away.
4. Far better and far more connectivity for the future.

But now you need to set a budget.

so what would i need to buy to go with my tv and blu-ray player to get good surround sound,im guessing a amp and some speakers,could i use the speakers i have with the theater system.

Again an all-in-one problem. The speakers will work but be very careful, but the Sub will be useless as it is a passive type (i.e. no built-in amp)
The key thing is budget?
Keep the all-in-one as one and sell it whilst it is still working.
