How can I get Dolby Digital / DTS 5.1 / 6.1 audio on my computer?

Question: How can I get Dolby Digital / DTS 5.1 / 6.1 audio on my computer?

I have a 7.1 channel integrated audio card. I was thinking of getting a 7.1 speaker system for my computer. But is there a program that will allow me to get discreet 5.1 / 6.1 channel audio when the media source is encoded in Dolby Digital (EX) / DTS (ES)? Does Windows Media Player have the ability to decode DTS and Dolby Digital?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,I'm now using Ideapad Z510. After upgraded to Windows 8.1. I'd went to the Lenovo website searching for new driver update.But, after i install the "Realtek Audio Driver 6.0.1.7023", the "Dolby Home Theater V4" is not running(audio sound not playing through).And, the "Dolby Digital Plus" is running instead of "Dolby Home Theater V4".Then, when I try to reinstall the older version "Realtek Audio Driver 6.0.1.6954" from Lenovo website, the "Dolby Home Theater V4" is running again.Truly, the "Dolby Digital Plus"'s sound is crisper and louder than "Dolby Home Theater V4". But the sound of "Dolby Home Theater V4" has more bass and more function (like Graphic Equalizer, more Intelligent Equalizer etc.).Is this an update or what?What should I choose?The newer driver (for Windows 8.1) or older driver (for Dolby Home Theater V4)?  Thanks. (confused now) @@

Answer:Dolby Home Theater V4 changed to Dolby Digital Plus after Realtek Audio Driver update Windows 8.1

I only installed audio driver ver. 6.0.1.6798 which includes Dolby Home Theater V4. Since no issues are encountered I have not updated to the latest version for my unit (ver. 6.0.1.7027). Does this Dolby Digital Plus mentioned by you better than V4 in some aspect aside from the ones that you already stated?

Try Dolby Digital Plus off.I do this routinely because I don't like the artificial sound, and it can add noise when boosting levels.

Hello,  My Dolby Advanced Audio program has worked for the past year or so.  But after installing Razer Surround, the Dolby program stopped working. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the newest version of Conexant HD audio, and that worked. However, I noticed that Dolby Advanced Audio V2 was replaced with Dolby Digital Plus. I am not noticing any significant difference in audio quality, but the GUI is completely different and I think there are some features missing.  Would this be considered an upgrade or a downgrade going from advanced audio to digital plus? What are the differences besides the user interface? Thanks in advance!  Note:For people who, like me, have installed third-party sound drivers (like Razer Surround, etc) and experienced issues where Dolby Advanced Audio stopped working, simply go into control panel-->programs and features--> and uninstall Conexant Audio HD. After that, go to your computer's Lenovo drivers page and download the most recent one. Dolby should work again.  For me, there was a check box in the Razer Surround settings that says "enable virtual audio device". When checked, this will enable Razer Surround. Unchecked, it will turn Razer off and turn Dolby back on. When I first had Dolby Advanced Audio v2, this would not happen. When I turned Razer Surround on and then off, Dolby Advanced Audio would just sit there unresponsive. There were no sound/equilizer bars present, and p... Read more

Hello. Here are the specs of the PC:

OS: Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
Sound Card: Sound Blaster Zx - PCI x4 slot
Speaker System: 2 Logitech Z-5500 surround sound systems hooked to an optical splitter
Cabling: THX Certified Fiber Optic Cables going out of the Z5500 Control pods into an optical splitter and then into the Sound Card's SPDIF port.

Here is what I am wondering about:

I would like to get the best possible audio quality sound, so I would like to know what I would need to adjust in the OS settings and if there is anymore hardware that I may need to get such as a receiver that has dolby digital / DTS drivers built in and can output that kind of quality?

I am not sure if I did get a receiver, that perhaps I would be able to make it work with the Z-5500 systems somehow? Thank you for more information on this.

Hi all, I have Acer VN7-591G that runs win 8. I have a problem with audio. Whenever I navigate into some options related to mic, my audio almost mutes. I noticed that Dolby Digital Plus just turns off. If I turn it on manually -- everything becomes fine. So to reproduce this problem I can do several things: go to Skype->Audio settings or open Recording Devices with right click on my mixer, or go to any application's settings with microphone (like in any online game), or start a call via Skype with anyone. Also that happens with multiple applications: I can start Spotify after KMPlayer is already playing something and one of sources will be almost muted. I assume that I don't have Cortana, so that solution doesn't work for me. Did anyone have/fix this problem? Thanks

The only fix I know is to install the windows 8.1 conexant driver, on Win 10., and it should solve the problem. I hope they'll address the problem soon with the latest driver. It's the dolby application that is not working properly on the latest driver, not the conexant audio driver.

Hi All,

I have an older computer that I'd like to give my nephew. However, I noticed there is no audio/sound when playing the newer DVDs (Dolby Digital Plus).

The upgraded sound card was not compatible with Windows 7 so it had to be removed. Currently running on just the on board sound.

Do I need to upgrade the sound card in order for him to play Dolby Digital Plus?

I have a Pioneer 106s DVD ROM which has a digital 2 pin output.

I just bought a Sony STRDE 675 dolby digital amplifier which has a coaxial digital in input.

My sound card, a soundblaster Live CT 4830 does have a digital out connector on the external part (next to the line in input), but does not have a 2 pin connector on the card itself where the DVD could be connected (there is the place with SPDIF marked but for some reason there is no 2 pins connector)

I do not want to buy a 5.1 soundcard if I can connect my DVD ROM to the amplifier without using the soundcard, Is this possible! Is the DVD rom digital out SPDIF recognised by the amplifier?

Should I create on the soundcard (which does have the digital output on the ecternal panel) an internal connection for the 2 pins? will this work?

Does anyone have a clue? HELP!!
many thanks

Hi,    i just bought a laptop Lenovo T530 which came with Dolby Advanced Audio v2 with Realtek audio drivers. When i turned it on, the sound was pretty bad as there were no preset equalizer profiles, I however had the options for Games, Movies, Music but those settings were all kept to normal. I'm no audio expert, so i couldnt create new profiles and set the equalizer settings myself because even when i tried, the sound did'nt help much. So i got to know that Dolby Home Theatre v4 has lot of options and even some preset equalizer settings too. Now my question is how to upgrade from Dolby AA v3 to Dolby HT v4. I downloaded the realtelk audio drivers from lenovo support site, uninstalled my realtek audio driver and dolby AAC, deleted the Dolby folder in the registry. I then installed the downloaded Realtek audio driver for my model and again the Dolby AAC was back , I uninstalled Dolby AAC and tried to install the Dolby HT v4.msi which i found in the PCEE folder of the installation. But i get an error when running the installation that Dolby HT cannot be installed. Any idea on how to solve this?

I purchased a W700 back in November and spent $450 extra for a BluRay drive. You must use the DisplayPort to connect HDMI compliant gear and I have also learned that they have failed to include audio over the DisplayPort which really makes paying for BluRay a waste of money. They fail to mention this on their website so buyer beware! There does not seem to be any way of outputting the multi-channel digital soundtracks of any DVD or BluRay unless I purchase a mini-dock and haul that around with me everywhere I go. Many notebooks use the headphone jack as an optional digital out port, but not on the W series. They have even crippled the internal "record what you hear" digital audio recording feature common in even the cheapest notebooks. This is a problem is you ever plan on editing video, recording audio of any kind, playing back movies, or hooking the notebook up to a home theater or to office presentation gear like projectors. When will Lenovo deal with this problem?

Answer:No digital audio in or out, or the ability to record digital audio in W700 and W500 series notebooks

"When will Lenovo deal with this problem?" Never... I've edit videos with Premiere and After Effects with no problems on the audio side though. Of course, you won't get digital audio out. I've been waiting for an update on the broken wacom drivers to support 2 buttons (indispensable for pro 3D applications) since I purchased my W700 back in October 2008. Wacom developers sent a new driver to Lenovo back in early December but Lenovo seems to keep that driver in the dark for some reason. I guess we just bought the wrong laptop.

Simple question: I have a choice with my new speakers of using either Dolby Digital, or DTS. Which one is better?

BTW- Did not know what catagory to post this question in, so I thought is would be appropriate in the hardware section.
 

Answer:DTS or Dolby Digital

I would recommend you reinstall the Dolby software first, to see if that fixes the issue. There are a number of thuings that could have caused this to start happening, first and foremost, Windows updates.

Hello guys
I did a clean install to Windows 10, because upgrading it break the WiFi connectivity.
Now I got another issue, I noticed that the Audio Driver downloaded from Windows Update is somehow didn't sound good, if I enabled Dolby the bass is drastically reduced like no bass at all. I tried with headset and a small sound system, they both sound like a laptop speaker. The old driver couldn't be installed, the installer always failed.
I tried to use the same driver for windows 10 from another lenovo product with no different. Do you guys have any idea about this? It is not a big deal because I'm using a USB Headset. What matter is when I use a sound system to play music/movie the sound really bad. The solution for now is to disable Dolby but the sound is really low. I would like to know is there is a way to install the old driver to Windows 10 at least?
My sound card is Conexant SmartAudio other spec can be found in Sytem Spec and the installed driver version is 8.66.4.0.
Thanks in advance. I'm looking forward for your respond and sorry for my bad English.

Answer:No bass with Dolby Digital Plus

I had the same problem, I also have Lenovo, my model is G505.

What solved the problem for me was, I opened this

then I changed from ''CLASSIC'' to ''MULTI-STREAM''

and then your sound should be ok,

and then you can adjust your bass in DDP and be happy again!

Please respond if this helps.

Is there such thing as a dolby digital encoder? As now I have to use my surround sound to get sound, I would like it to be decent 5.1.

The surround sound is connected via opticle. I have all the sound settings as 6 channel audio, and I get 5.1 sound in movies, but not in games such as half life 2, so is there anything I can download to encode the sound to dolby digital for my surround sound to decode.

The surround sound reciever supports dolby digital and dts.

Thanks, Trif.

uhmmm............. I don't think there's an encoder needed. Maybe if you have Integretaed audio.

I'm using Acer Aspire R7, and running on Insiders Preview Build (Slow ring) OS Build 16291.0. My problem here is, each time when I get an update for Insiders Preview Build, my Dolby Digital Plus will stop working/gone. I had to reinstall it by going to  Program Files (x86) > Realtek > Audio > DS1 and run the DolbyDigitalPlusHT.msi, and then choose repair to fix missing or corrupted files to bring back the Dolby Digital Plus. And of course my custom equalizer will also gone after an update. And I had to do this step each time I get an update for Insiders Preview Build. So my question, is there any way that I can do so I will not loose my Dolby Digital Plus after getting an update? I dont want to loose my custom equalizer. I hate it, each time I had to set my custom equalizer again. Is there is a file that contains the data of my custom equalizer? I can't find it tho.

I have setup my computer so that it can play DVD's and I started considering Dolby Digital 5.1 (DD 5.1) sound systems that have the DD 5.1 decoders in them but I'm not sure if my sound card supports the capability to send a DD 5.1 signial to the sound system. Now I don't know if a sound card needs anything special or if a coax S/PDIF or optical S/PDIF output jack is all that's necessary to send the DD 5.1 signal. The sound card I have is (I believe) manufactured by A-Trend
and it is a Harmony 3DS724A High Quality Yamaha PCI 3D Sound SONDIUS-XG Wavetable Synthesis with;

Speaker Out/Line Out
Line In
Mic In
MIDI/Joystick
S/PDIF

jacks. And so my question is if I were to get a DD 5.1 sound system which had its own DD 5.1 decoder inside could my sound card send the DD 5.1 signal or would I have to purchase a special sound card for this and why?
 

Answer:Dolby Digital 5.1 capable ?

You are all set.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>S/PDIF port for direct digital audio output to AC-3 decoders and speaker systems <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

AC-3 is an older term for 5.1 - they are the same thing.

That quote came from A-Trend.

G'day all.


I have just bought Unreal2003, and all over the CD's and the box it claims to have Dobly Digital content.
I have my sound card hooked up to a Home Theatre reciever that decodes this stream.

I cannot find it? where would it be? I was looking forward to listening to the game in digital. The reciever (Yamaha TSS-1) has a little light that flicks on when there is a digital stream going through it. It never comes on.

Thanks people.
 

Answer:Dolby Digital in games

There is no Dolby Digital in *any* games. It's only available if you're using the nForce 1/2 motherboards that support Dolby Digital Encoding. It's some odd misleading marketing thing that Dolby have going on.

As from the America's Army FAQ;

Q: What are the system requirements for Dolby Digital audio?
A: NVIDIA nForce or other motherboards/soundcards containing the Dolby Digital Interactive Content Encoder required for Dolby Digital audio.

Hello,

I have a DVD-ROM on my computer, as well as a brand new Sound Blaster Audigy 2 NX which is connectd to a 5.1 dolby digital surround sound creative system.

My problem is that when I play DVD's on the system, they don't play in Dolby Digital Surround. They either only play in Stereo on the front two speakers, or they are replicated over all 5 speakers through the use of the Creative CMSS function.

I have tried playing the DVD in two separate DVD programs (NVDVD and PowerDVD), and I have also checked the settings in both to ensure that they are showing Dolby 5.1 (Power DVD has it in 5.1, the other program does not list 5.1 as an option).

Could anybody give me a lead as to why this is happening? I have all drivers and software installed, up to date, and seem to be correct.

Thanks,
James Crosson

It is probably easier if you just buy an XBOX. XBOX is the forerunner of on-the-fly Dolby Digital Encoding for the NFORCE series from nVIDIA by leveraging HyperTransport AKA - LDT (Lightning Data Transport) from AMD.

Or simply waiting long enough for perfecting of Intel's PCI-e (simultaneous multiple data streams from multiple data sources to multiple destinations) and Intel would be putting out latest souped-up immitation versions of XBOX/NFORCE series.

It is unfortunate that Intel just had to re-invent PCI-Express instead of using HyperTransport from way back in early 2000.

I am currently running Vista, SP1. Sound chip is a RealTek HD output through SPDIF (coax), run to my AV receiver.

How do I get windows to output all audio (including windowd default sounds) to Dolby Digital? Right now it outputs everything to 2.0 PCM. I have enabled digital output (spdif), and DD and DTS in the control panel. I have done the test, and heard the tone on all channels (and when it does the tones, Dolby Digital kicks in of course, but then goes back to PCM after the test).

I know digital out is working because like I said, it does the test in DD, and also, I have installed AC3 Filter, and when I play movies, the audio switches to Dolby.

Any ideas?

Hey everyone, this looks like a good forum and I'm glad to have discovered it.

So on to first post/problem;

I bought a new amplifier, mostly for listening music and for watching movies with (Kenwood RV7000). My laptop is Acer 5755G, and these two are connected with a HDMI-cable. My ampliefier supporst all kinds of Dolby digital sounds, though I cannot use them.

When I listen to FM radio, the amplifier lets me decide between Dolby digital listening modes, or the Pure Audio mode (some sort of pre-equalized thingy). I can also tune the sound with these Dolby modes.

So when I connect my laptop to the amplifier, I only get a PCM and a Stereo mode, with no settings for the sound. Another thing is my computer has a Dolby Advanced Audio v2 equalizer in my laptop, which does nothing when music goes through the HDMI to the amplifier. When I listen with my laptop speakers, it lets me equalize the sounds.

I've updated the Realtek HD Audio drivers, though I'm not sure if they do anything, since it only seems to be controlling the microphone.

Is there something wrong with the signal my laptop sends to the amplifier, or what? Starting to get a bit confused here.

Answer:HDMI / Dolby Digital problem

If the onboard card won't support digital surround then you won't be able to get it no matter what the reciever is capable of...although the reciever depending on its features might be able to code the signal into some sort of psuedo digital surround.

I had an old laptop with that problem and got around it by purchasing an external Audigy extigy sound card. I would think such a device is still made.

I've put windows 8 on 3 of my machines and lost my 7.1 options on Hdmiand is stuck on 2.0. Since they put hdmi on the video cards now, I took all of my expensive sound cards out of my machines and got Nice receivers that take Hdmi for simple clean sound and to get rid of a lot of expensive cable.

My media server card was was old (Radeon 2400), so I didn't expect new support for that. I replace it and took one card that I bought from last year out of another machine to put on my media server. I did a new build 2 weeks ago and SPECIFIED that I need a video card that had 7.1 support for windows 8. they give me one (a Radeon 5450). Well I'm in the same boat with that card. only 2.0 sound

The weird thing is I have 2 IDENTICAL video cards (2 Radeon 6450) that I bought last year for this issue. Now on one machine it only give me the 2.0 option but on the other, it give me Dolby Digital, Dts and some other options. Well at the very least I glad that that is my media server computer. I still wondering why I got that option on one machine and not the other and why the new card isn't giving me the option at all.

I had changed all of my card from Nvidia to radeons over the years because nvidia didn't support 7.1 through Hdmi back then (I'm not sure about now)

Audio System: Windows® compatible sound card (*Sound Blaster® Audigy(tm) series sound card RECOMMENDED) (NVIDIA® nForce or other motherboards/soundcards containing the Dolby® Digital Interactive Content Encoder required for Dolby Digital audio. Also RECOMMENDED)

This was taken form the system requirements. When it says that you need "Interactive content Encoder"

Does that mean you need a external amp/chip. Or just some software codec???
 

Answer:Unreal2 Dolby Digital content

From what i know, cards like SBLIVE 5.1 DE and SB LIVE Audigy have internal encoders for Dolby Digital feature. In other words they are capable of reproducing Dolby Digital audio.

It should not be a problem for your card to do the Dolby Digital thingey if you are playing the game.

Answer:Advice please on speakers Dolby Digital 5.1/6.1 ?

Yeah you get the sound effect of 5.1 and 6.1. You'll be covered in sound and you'll be smiling.It will be a vast improvement over 2.1 that you have now. The subwoofer alone is fantastic.

Answer:Lenovo Z50 uninstall dolby digital pro

hi KILLTROOP,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
I don't have a Z50 here for testing but AFAIK, the audio enhancements are connected to the Conexant Audio driver (no enhancements on generic driver)
 
Things that you can try:
1. Follow this guide on how to disable automatic driver installation (works with Win7/8.1/10)
 
2. Press the Windows key? +X then navigate to  Device Manager > Audio inputs and outputs and uninstall all audio devices there (if prompted, delete the driver software for the device) then navigate to Sound, video, and game controllers and uninstall the Conexant Audio Device there too.
 - Sample image
 - Sample image
 
3. Press the Windows key? +X, choose Programs and Features then uninstall the Conexant Audio Driver and anything that says Dolby then reboot.
 
4. Download and run the Conexant Audio Driver but don't proceed with the installation (our aim is to just extract the files under C:\Drivers\Conexant Audio Driver ).
 
Conexant Audio Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - Notebook
Conexant Audio Driver for Windows 8.1 (64-bit)
 
After extracting the files, open up Device Manager --> Sound, video, and game controllers (right click --> Update driver Software) > Browse my computer for driver software and point it to the audio driver that you extracted on Step 4 (e.g., C:\Drivers\Conexant Audio Driver) then reboot if necessary.

Hi.Recently I had my laptop sent for repair due to multiple BSOD. Since I got it back I noticed my Dolby icon was missing from the system tray. I've searched everywhere but couldn't find it so I decided to reinstall the Realtek driver with the latest provided by Lenovo support. However not only this did not fix my problem it also caused another. The Realtek Audio Manager is no longer in the system tray either. I'm hoping I could receive help for my problem. Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad English.

Hi,

have a Intel D975XBX2 board and Dloby Digital Live works fine in Windows XP. Have gone for an upgrade to Vista x64 to use the 4GB of RAM but the option for Dolby Digital Live is either obscurely hidden or it does not exist.

Does anyone know if Dolby Digital Live is supported by Vista x64 using the Sigmatel 92xx? Anyone actually got it working?

Thanks,
PH

I have an a-bit ip-35 pro with the ACL888 audio onboard. There is an optical spdif output that I have running to my receiver. If I put a dvd in the drive I get the dolby digital plus logo in the lower left corner and great sound using Windows Media player.

When I play an mpeg, the receiver doesn't recognize the dolby digital and just tries to play the left center and right, but I don't get the correct sound. It just sounds like baseball cards in a bicycle spoke. To make sure it was dolby digital I used convertxtodvd to make it into a dvd Windows Media player played it in dolby digital plus and played it excellently. so the mpeg is in Dolby digital.

I haven't been able to get dolby digital to work on VLC media player at all. Although it does do slightly better because it repeats about 1/2 seconds worth of audio for 5 seconds and then repeast a new 1/2 second of audio, but the receiver does recognize the dolby digital 5.1

I have the latest drivers for realtek (2.41) I tried updating my bios to the latest version, but still no luck. I assume this is a problem with Windows media player I'm not sure if I need to get a codec or something. (VLC I have no idea) I am running Windows 7 64-bit. Thanks.

Answer:Dolby Digital works for DVD's but not mpeg.

I found a solution to VLC here is a post in a thread

Realtek Codec: ALC888
Audio Driver Version: 5.10.0.5532 (20/12/2007)
Direct X: 9.0C
VLC: 0.8.6d

Settings Inside VLC:
Enable SPDIF
Preferences / Audio / Output Modules / Audio Output Module = Win32 Waveout extension output (without this setting I got stutter)

the url is : The VideoLAN Forums &bull; View topic - spdif or not?

still no luck with Windows Media player, it would be nice to know if there was a fix, but I prefer VLC anyway. ALso the main thing was for a mythtv frontend, which is also working.

Answer:Uninstalled Dolby digital Plus 7.5.1.1 - Lenovo y50-70

hi sahilnair,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Download this driver
Realtek Audio Driver for 64-bit Windows
 
 
This installer comes in two phases when you run it
 
Phase 1 is the extraction and 2nd is the Actual installation.
 
Run this software and it will say it will install but disregards it it will give you a path box where it will say where it will be extracted Takenote of the path.
Now continue with the installation until you come to a page where you will see a check box that will say install the Realtek driver, Uncheck it and it will not proceed with the actual installation anymore
 
Now Open the Path that it gave you earlier, ex. C:/drivers/Realtek
  Look inside that realtek folder and look for a folder named Dolby or DolbyGUI
  inside that folder you will find installation files
     Dolby Advanced audio
     Dolby Theater
     Dolby digital plus
 
Install the one that came with your system and you should have it back
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

My plan for the AXC-603G-UW15 was to use it as a media box. I am not able to get 5.1 or anything other than 2 channel audio out of the HDMI. If I switch it to 5.1 in sound settings, nothing plays at all... Any ideas?

Answer:No Dolby Digital 5.1 with AXC-603G-UW15

I figured it out! I just wanted to put the solution to my issue up just in case anyone else runs into the same problem. When doing speaker setup, the 5.1 Surround audio test does not work and will not play audio to any of the speakers.The get 5.1 Dolby Digital or DTS passthrough on the HDMI output (With KODI/XBMC or Windows Media Center) you must leave the speaker setup as Stereo.Next, On the Advanced tab of the Sound Device properties, Both Exclusive Modes must be selectedKODI or Windows Media Center MUST be in full screen mode (Not full screen window) Setup with the above and DD5.1 or DTS content will pass through to the AVR Hope this helps someone down the road...

Hello, i have windows 10 64bit and Dolby digital plus sound system. I have two different questions:1) I noticed that Dolby digital plus system can only hold up to two sound sources at a time (it will enchant sound quality of 2 sources only). Is there a way to increase sound sources and make for ex. 3 of them? 2) Sound sometimes just vanishes (music is showing that is playing but no sounds are being heard). I have to mannualy go to playback devices -> speaker properties -> Advanced -> and change default format to any of 24bits and press ok. Is there a way to fix it?

Hello.I bought my Laptop (Lenovo Z50-70 in jan 2015) With Window 8.1 installed on it. One of the applications it came with was Dolby Digital Plus - and it was an amazing product, it made my laptop much louder and the voice, music was very very much cleaner. But soon after the I upgraded to windows 10 . After the upgrade, dolby digital plus still remained and when it's turned on, it does work fine. But the problem is, it keeps turning itself off.When I open a new Video File, when I play new mp3 File ,when I open a new Video - every time, it turns itself off and I have to turn it on again.I follow the stap on this site http://www.dolby.com/us/en/support.html but not working...Could you tell me what I can do about it? I tried searching for a new version of Dolby Digital Plus, but I couldn't find any download links for dolby digital. Then I downloaded newest Sound driver (for Windows 10), but after I installed it, dolby digital was gone completely so I restored the previous version.so I'm pretty sure the problem is not specific to my PC.I'd be grateful for any suggestions. Thank,

Hello,

I am coming here for help as I have tried everything possible to get Dolby Digital sound to play my games in.

My setup:

Custom built desktop with AMD 965 BE Quad Core, Asus M4N98TD EVO motherboard, eVGA GeForce 470 Superclocked graphics card.

The motherboard supports native 7.1 and has it's own Digital Coaxial & Optical outputs.

The graphics card carries up to 7.1 via HDMI. I am running my graphics card HDMI output to my Samsung 40 1080P LCD.

I have tried just running HDMI to my TV, then using the Optical output from the TV to my receive, as well as running the optical output from the motherboard directly to my receiver, to no avail.

In the Windows sound option, I have enabled Digital Audiot S/PDIF. When I click Supported format, I see Dolby Digital and can hit test, at which point I see my receiver switch from ProLogic / Stereo to Digital, however sound only comes out of my front speakers as if it were in Stereo.

Under Advanced Tab, it only shows 2 channel options. If I right click on Digital Audio (S/PDIF) there is no 'configure' option, where I could select the speakers.

This really bothers me, since when trying to play all my games, i.e. Battlefield 2 Bad Company I can only get Pro-Logic.

This should be much more straight-forward, but I can't for the life of my figure it out.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!

Answer:Windows 7 No Dolby Digital Sound - Please HELP!

SOME audio systems only have two channel stereo output on digital. I've seen this on some of the Dell PC's with S/PDIF output. On those systems the only way to get more than two channel is to use the analog outputs on the sound.

This may be the case with yours too.

Well, yeah, I like to know how Dolby Digital in games works. What does it mean?
I know how EAX works- it simply creates different sound effects according to the surrounding.
Okay. But what does Dolby Digital do?
I thought Dolby Digital in games is somewhat impossible, because unlike EAX, it can't be
created dynamically, but must be readily mixed. However, in games where situations are never
the same, you can't mix the sound in advance, it must be created dynamically, according to the
situation and environment. But according to Dolby, they seem to have developed a new
technique to make Dolby Digital possible in games.

Well, what's the story now with Dolby Digital in (newer) games, like Prince of Persia or Army
Ops, what are the advantages?

When I changed my SB Live! 5.1 Platinum against my new nForce 2 onboard sound, I could
only hear that the sound in, for example, Army Ops sounds a bit "smoother" than before. But I
had 5.1 sound with my Live! before as well. And of course the whole sound sounds a lot better
then before (with my Live!), so I can't really tell what's the difference now.

And maybe the answer to my DD question will already answer the following question: when playing games in Dolby Digital (PoP, Army Ops), does it make sense to deactivate EAX?
 

Answer:How does Dolby Digital work in games?

Dolby Digital "in" games is just a marketing ploy. Absolutely no games feature any audio encoded in that format.

If you want Dolby Digital encoded content in games then you need to be using a nForce/nForce 2 motherboard which supports that feature - that can then encode audio into that format in real-time - which basically means that instead of needing to use 3 (analog) line-outs you can instead use 1 S/PDIF cable to connect to a Dolby Digital decoder instead.
The nForce motherboards that include this feature can do this with all audio (though obviously it's not needed if you're playing something thats encoded in that format, i.e. most DVDs).

EAX has nothing to do with this at all & if you want environmental effects in your games then you'll want to enable it (Some games tie 3D audio to this as well, so if you want that as well then be sure its on).

The "advantages" to this encoding are that you'll only need to use 1 cable instead of 3 & your receiver may well feature better DACs than the nForce (likely). On the downside dolby digital is a lossy audio format.

I'd like to use my Astro MixAmp with my PC via the optical audio port on my motherboard, but I'm having trouble getting Windows to use it.

When I go into the sound properties and select SPDIF Interface (TX1) and go to the properties on that item then select the supported formats tab and select the Dolby Digital option in the encoder formats box and press the test sound button I hear everything fine. I deselected the other two options in that category and closed that window then tested the sound from the SPDIF Interface (TX1) and got nothing. Any idea what I should do?
