What is a DTS file?
Multi-channel audio file encoded in the Digital Theater Systems (DTS) format; saves five tracks of audio data used for surround sound; channels include center, left-front, right-front, left-rear, and right-rear.
NOTE: In order to play all channels of a DTS file, the output and speaker setup must support 5 channel audio. For example, this may be accomplished by using an optical out connection with a surround speaker system.

Device Tree Source File

Device trees are files that an operating system's kernel, or core program, uses to manage and communicate with the computer's hardware. Because different computers contain different hardware, they use different device trees.
A DTS file is the source file used to create a computer's device tree. It contains a list of nodes, properties, and child nodes that describes what hardware a computer contains. For example, a DTS file describes the computer's CPU, memory, buses, and peripherals (such as the computer's keyboard).
DTS files are compiled into DTB (Device Tree Blob) files, which are binary files that a computer uses during the booting process. DTS files are compiled using a DTC, or device tree compiler.
How to open a DTS file
How do I compile a DTS file into a DTB file?
To compile a DTS file into a DTB file, you must invoke Linux's device tree compiler. The device tree compiler is stored in linux-xlnx/scripts/dtc and must itself be compiled to be used. After compiling the DTC, you can invoke it using the dtc command. For example, to compile a DTS file into a DTB file, you can enter the command dtc -I dts -O dtb -o filename.dtb filename.dts.
