Stereo FLAC files with DTS coding for 5.1 surround

I have some CD rips on my hard drive that I took from DTS CDs.

I'd never heard of this format before so I was surprised to discover that they decoded to 5.1 if played as stereo on my Roon ROCK NUC into a Linn DSM with the Linn Surround Module via HDMI.

Does anybody know if there is a way to convert/decode these files to FLAC 5.1 so they will play as 5.1 on my Roon ROCK into another system without the need for the Linn Surround Module?

I have tried a few programs without success. These best I have got so far is six channels with audio only on the first two, the rest being empty.

Many thanks.
