in a forthcoming release of dftb+ there will be a phonon tool that I developed.
It can calculate dispersions and coherent phonon transmission starting from the Hessian.
For the moment you can try phonopy to get the dispersion.

Oggetto: Re: [DFTB-Plus-User] Phonon dispersion using single k-point hessian calculations.
the k-points refer to the electronic structure only, not the phonon band structure (often the momenta there is labeled with q).
You can use phonopy to calculate dispersions, see
for a worked example.
