Hello , first of all congratulations for this great forum.I have a Carbon X1 2012 and recently decided to upgrade to windows 8.1, everything is perfect except one thing, the Dolby equalizer dissapeared.The Dolby works, but now has fewer options than the Dolby in windows 7, not including the equalizer, which I use a lot.I downloaded the last driver for my model from Lenovo website, which clearly states that it is for win 7/8/8.1.In windows 7 the Dolby is called "Dolby Home Theater v4" while in windows 8.1 with the same driver installed it becomes "Dolby Digital Plus" without equalizer.How can I make the normal Dolby Home theater v4 with equilizar work on windows 8.1? thank you very much!regardsBorjaZD

Answer:Dolby Home Theater/Dolby Digital Plus not working

Dolby Digital Plus has miraculously started working, though it looks very different to the last time I used it (it used to be a lot smaller and said Home Theater rather than Digital Plus) but its better than nothing.

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,

I only can get my front 2 speakers to work with Auzentech Prelude.

Previously Auzentech worked successfully on XP with all features working correctly so there is some compatability issue with Windows 7.

I have followed the Install instructions as posted on the Auzentech website. I will copy and paste this for reference.

1.Install the Driver in the CD first.
2.Reboot PC
3.Download and unzip the R4_patch driver
4.Double-click "setup.exe."
5.Check ?Overwrite existing shared Creative audio driver files?
6.Click OK
7.Reboot your PC after completing the installation.

The error message I get when checking the Dolby Digital box is "The Creative Audio Service is not started. Please Reinstall the application".

The 5.1 test sound pattern from the Auzentech volume control does not emit any sound.

The SPDIF properties also has a sound test pattern which displays and plays only 2 channels of sound (Front left and right).

There are no error messages in the Device Manager.

Has anyone here discovered what is preventing the Dolby Digital from working?

Answer:Auzentech Prelude Dolby Digital 5.1 not working

Updating my post from yesterday:

I had an issue after I updated my driver to the Windows 7 beta driver on the Auzentech site. My computer failed to reboot. I can't remember the message I got but it was a boot disk type error. I repaired Windows 7 and I was able to reboot once again.

I have also made the observation that even though I can get "Coaxial" to display on my receiver (that was the setting which XP worked fine on for Dolby Digital) it removes the "Coaxial" and just stereo displays.

I reformatted my computer because I thought the repair that I spoke of above might of tangled up the audio settings. This did not produce better results.

Description of the issue: Dolby digital plus is no longer working as it used to.  Description of actions:I had two chrome windows open, and I was watching a show in one. I paused it to watch something in the other window, and when I went back to the show, the sound was back to the low quality heard when dolby isn't on. I pulled up dolby, and saw it was on. However, the equalizer scales weren't moving to the audio, and the sound quality was still poor. Upon further listening, there is a minute change when dolby is turned on, but it's not the incredible difference I'd been experiencing earlier.   What I've done to muddle through the issue:-Restarted the PC, hoping the switch between browser windows had confused dolby. No luck there.-Checked Windows update to see if a driver or update had gone through recently-nothing.-Looked at the the drivers. Seems there's only one speaker driver, RealTek High Definition Audio, ver. 6.0.1.7300. It dates back to July, which I'm assuming is when the laptop was packaged. Weirdly, that's also the latest update from Acer, though Acer lists it as being updated November. Muh laptop:Aspire V3-572-51TR, purchased a month ago, most non-critical Windows updates ignored, not much else done to it. Edit: Now it's working on some things but not others.

Answer:Aspire V3-572 dolby digital plus stopped working

Hi... It seems to be something with the audio driver. The dolby software is included in the factory shipped audio driver. In order t o fix this issue, you may try reinstalling the audio driver on the laptop. Here are the steps: Press and hold the Windows key and then press the C key to open Charms.Click on Search and type "Recovery".Click on 'Acer Recovery Management'.Select Reinstall Drivers or Applications.Select Content and choose the audio codec and proceed to install it. In case you are unable to install this driver, you may go to Device Manager and open "Audio, video and game controllers" and uninstall the current audio driver. Then follow the above steps to install the audio driver. It will work..

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.

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
 

Answer:connecting a DVD Rom digital signal to a Dolby Digital Amplifier

Modifying it isn't going to work in my mind.
Just adding pin connections don't mean the hardware and software is included with the card.

I'm running vista x86 with version 6213 of the realtek apo driver for the built in realtek sound card on this motherboard (p5n32-sli SE deluxe)..

I had installed the klite mega codec pack at one point.. as well as version 7.3x of PowerDVD.. all was well in the realm of dolby digital (via coax) and Vista.. i could goto the sounds section of control panel and click on the dolby digital check box and do a test.. my receiver showed Dolby Digital.. I also could select spdif in PowerDVD and get dolby digital working fine there as well..

Now suddenly, i cant get it to work.. its gone from powerdvd and if i do the test tones section in control panel i get:

"windows was unable to play the test tone"

The only thought i have, is that coax/dolby digital broke after installing SP1 ? Though i'm not positve.

I'm at a loss.. i've tried removing the 6213 driver completely and reinstalling.. i've tried other versions of the driver.. i've also tried reinstalling the codec pack..

I'm not sure if this error message is related to the driver or a codec issue?

One thing i did notice.. if i switched user accounts.. logged in.. for a split second the test actually worked.. then suddenly it stopped, perhaps after loading things.. I tried killing every task in taskman that i thought could be causing an issue, but nothing fixed it..

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Answer:5.1 dolby digital PC

open your sound manager & set it to 5.1 ch,then
check the "speaker test".

click each speaker image & you should hear the

I am a new owner and haven't used this specific software version but hav on previous machines. The problem is that it makes no difference in audio quality whether the equalizer is on or off. chaning modes does nothing. I should be seeing the EQ bars move to the audio but they don't. Tried Youtube via Chrome, Spotify desktop app, Windows Media Player to no success. What am I doing wrong here? UPDATE: Software works for speakers and headphones but not Bluettoth audio sources. Anyone have any ideas on how to enable that? I am also wondering if the software works with USB amplifiers?

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!

As I'm seeing more and more pc games that are using Dobly Digital, I'm trying to figure out how to enable this on my pc. If I understand right you have to have a nVidia chipset mobo that supports digital encodiing. Is this right? If so, and as I don't have this type of mobo, is there any other solution.

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.

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.

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.

Hey guys,I've had a Lenovo Y50 for a while, now I noticed  it only used 50% of my sound, so i put on Dolby, however, the sound sounds worse than with the 50%, like it added more noise/sounds than I originally heard in songs. I wanted to see if I can adjust this or anything, but I can not find any drivers anywhere for it. Is there somewhere I can download or adjust this? (I do play my music at 100% sometimes, it used to sound fine since the output was always 50% max...) I am quite sure my boxes sound fine, but it does sound like there is a disbalance when listening to music I always listen to, even when i plug in external boxes to improve sound/volume.is there a driver for dolby somewhere or another way to adjust this?Thanks in advance!

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

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.

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)

Guten Abend zusammen.Wenn ic mein Laptop über HDMI am TV anschließe, der wiederum mit HDMI (ARC) mit einem Heimkinosystem verbunden ist, kriege ich gar keinen 5.1 Surround Sound heraus.Selbst in der Treiberkonfiguration steht nur Stereo mit 2 Lautsprechern. Unterstützt das Gerät diese Soundeinstellungen nicht?Oder brauche ich andere Treiber? So ist ein Film leider ungenießbar, weil man sich an die 5.1 Anlage gewöhnt hat.    Gruß,Max

Answer:Dolby Digital / DTS über HDMI (VN7 791G)

Hallo krutojmax,meines Wissens hat das bei HDMI nichts mit der Soundkarte zu tun, sondern mit der Grafikkarte (vorausgesetzt die Grafikkarte ist nicht zu alt und besitzt einen Soundchip).Am HDMI-Audio-Treiber lässt sich dort überlicherweise das Tonformat einstellen. Gruß Balou

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 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...

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.

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?

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.

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.

Okay, I'm using an ASUS motherboard to output the S/PDIF signal to my Onkyo TX-SR607 receiver. When I go to the device in Windows 7 and do a DTS test I get sound from all 5 speakers, works great. The test for Dolby Digital the front 3 and the sub work, but the sounds for the two back speakers are channeled through the front left speaker.

I've gone through nearly all the settings on the Onkyo and updated the drivers, but nothing has helped. As far as I can tell the Dolby Digital works fine coming from my playstation if that helps any.

Answer:5.1: DTS Works, Dolby Digital Doesn'td

What motherboard model is it? With my GB, I had to specify that my Dolby receiver was 5.1 in the software, otherwise it would play in stereo.

Im looking for a new sound card to replace my onboard sound.

I will be hooking up Logitechs Z640 5.1 surround speakers to it.

I would also like to hook up my stereo system to the computer with a optical cable.

Looking around on Newegg. I found cards that i liked. Most way out of my price range. Which is about $50. I found this card.

Can i use 5.1 speakers on a 7.1 card?
Does having Dolby DTS make a difference?

Reason i ask is. I found this , and this Both are cheeper then the one above, but do not have Dolby.

I would like to get away with a cheeper card. I am not looking for something great like a Audgy ZS, but just a replace ment for my 6 channel onboard sound. Which is choosing not to work.

Please. any input is greatly appreciated.

Answer:Dolby Digital Sound Cards

Oh yes.

Will the Dolby, DTS be applied to the optical out too?

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?

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.

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.

I've tried unistalling and reinstalling the driver, or just simply updating the driver but none of it helps with the problem that Dolby Digital Plus kept getting turned off when I shutdown/restart my computer and its troublesome that I have to manually turn it on when I restart/ start up my computer.

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.

any 5.1 EAX and dolby digital cards w/ optical out for under $80??? Sounds like too much to ask for a sound card but thats what i need to run my DD and EAX games. My ext. reciever has only an optical input and what it calls a Coaxial input (however on my Sound max card its has the "SPDIF" output, but works with the Coaxial input) Wierd how some sound cards have 2 different types of SPDIF.....the Microphone jack type and the rca type. Wierd i say.

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.
