The Playbar doesn't support DTS. You'll probably need to change the output settings on your TV. Read the manual for how to do that.

Have you considered selling the sonos and buying a much cheaper system that supports DTS.

You would probably have at least a grand cash back and be able to watch whatever you wanted in glorious 5.1.

It's important to know if your TV transcodes DTS and outputs 5.1 via optical. My samsung does (settings>advanced) but some don't. What's the model of your TV?
