That is the same as converting mp3 to flac etc. : A cardinal sin. As long as you do this for your own inscrutable purposes, no harm done - but please never ever distribute such files. Btw, foobar2000 can directly tag .dts, .wavdts and .wav.

Indeed, DTS is a lossy format. But, I think, DTS in a .wav file is just as misleading as DTS in .flac or .wv or whatever other supposedly lossless container as .wav, as far as I know, is supposed to be the uncompressed digital file (therefore lossless). A .dts extension would make it clearer that this is supposed to be a DTS audio file.

Do you know if Kodi would recognize the tags maintained with foobar2000 in .dts (or .wav) files and scan them into the library? Only then would it make sense to do it, at least to me...
