No DTS Pass through

OK, so I have several plex media players. I have some DTS mkv files and I can't get any of my players to pass through to my Denon x2200w amp. It just comes through as stereo.

My players are:
Fire. TV v1
Xbox One
Samsung J7000 series TV (2015)

Dolby digital works fine on all of these devices. In addition if I play a blu ray on the xbox the denon amp picks it up fine.
What am I doing wrong?

    OK, so the Xbox seems to work better than most, as it shows up as Dolby surround. But the others? Really strange.

    Fire TV does not pass DTS audio thru so it gets converted to stereo. My parents have the 2nd gen Fire TV and that doesnt pass DTS audio either.
