Per the instruction manual, DTS-HD MA and Dolby TrueHD are not listed as supported audio codecs for file playback on disc, USB or DLNA ( only on Discs authored with Blu-ray disc structure as opposed to data discs with media files written to them will likely work).
I don't think .TS files are natively supported by the player, though I use them all the time over DLNA with AC-3 audio. I don't have any TS files with the HD audio formats to test, but I know that neither my BD670 or BD570 would playback .m2ts files with DTS-HD MA when I tested some time ago over CIFS/SMB and USB, though the BD570 did playback copies of the same files with AC-3 and DTS audio.
I heard that some Sony players can play HD audio in a TS file, but I would be surprised if that is officially sanctioned and supported. If you want to stream full quality Blu-ray rips, you will probably need to look at dedicated streaming devices specializing in playback of Blu-ray rips. In general this type of functionality seems to be considered a threat in the industry due to piracy concerns.
LGs 2010 players at one time supported .vob files ( from DVD rips) and Oppo supported Blu-ray folder structures at one point, but those features were removed in firmware updates. I suspect that industry partners pressured them into removing these features.
