Store launches and links to Dolby Atmos app when I change Spatial sound to Dolby Atmos

Question: Store launches and links to Dolby Atmos app when I change Spatial sound to Dolby Atmos

I just received Creators Update, and I installed Dolby Atmos for the demo, everytime I change the spatial sound to Dolby Atmos, it launches store and links to the Dolby App. But I already installed the app, and I have confirmed the demo, still 24 days remaining. I reset the app once, I could only use Dolby once. After a restart, the same problem came back. I Googled but no discussion with same case like me.

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.

Hello,

I was excited for the Creator's Update in large part because of the addition of Dolby Atmos for headphones. However, after installing Dolby Access and the required additional content, I see that I will only have a 30-day trial. I was under the impression this was going to be something free offered to all users. Is the paid feature something extra or will I no longer have access to Dolby Atmos after 30 days?

Answer:Dolby Atmos for Headphones

Dolby atmos proper is free, but Dolby Atmos for Headphone which is a software HRTF is $15. Dolby Atmos Headphone does not require any hardware compatible since its simulated.

In short, if it works and is good then there isn't much issue with plunking down $15 for what should be lifetime use within the windows ecosystem. Unfortunately it does not work as advertised at /all/ which is where any happy tidings with it are cut short. Razer Surround (I would opt for pro to disable bass boost, which cost $20) on the other hand works perfectly in every case other than Dolby Atmos encoded content.

Dolby Atmos Headphone is supposed to bring "5.1 and 7.1 to your dinky pair of headphones" and it sure does with its demos. And despite a bunch of people whining and inflating its issues based on its price point(the only other good option is Razer Surround Pro so I don't see the problem) since your device maintains a 2.0 speaker output many games (including those found on steam) do not detect a surround sound output.

CSgo seemed to work when I forced it into 5.1? Felt as if it did, there was definitely more depth to the surround audio positioning (or possible wishful thinking?) There is no definitive way to know its working. Games like Nier on the other hand which detect surround sound output and are hard encoded to only offer stereo otherwise will fail. Unlike with Razer with its real simulated 7.1 speaker setup in windows.

Hello friends!

I am seeking help in a question regarding Dolby Atmos.

I bought Logitech Z506 5.1 Surround System. I installed it properly and I configure it in Realtek Sound Driver for 5.1.
It happens that everytime I enable Dolby Atmos for headphones (for some reason I cannot enable home theater, since these Logitech are not HDMI), it resets the 5.1 configuration to stereo and I can only have sound on the 2 main speakers plus subwoofer. It is very anoying. I want to have 5.1 config plus Dolby Atmos, but it seems that everytime I enable Atmos, it resets the Speakers config to Stereo.

I hope you can help,

Thank You

Good day my fellow Yoga 720 buddies.... I just bought a Dolby Atmos speaker (was like $1,000!) for my house. I love it BUT I can only use it with XBOX One, which kinda sucks. I wish I had more content to use with it. Playing games and hearing that Atmos sound is incredible though!! Recently Netflix just updated the app for XBOX One and now has 2 or 3 shows (Okja!) that use the Dolby Atmos sound so that was my first experience using it for video entertainment. How do you use the Dolby Atmos with the Yoga 720? I would assume that the default speakers in the laptop does not work with Dolby Atmos.... So it comes down to this, how would I play the audio on my speaker? I am guessing I would have to do it via HDMI. The only way to do it via HDMI is via an USB C adapter. Does that work? What about the Dolby Atmos headphones? Can I use with existing headphones or do I need special ones? I saw a Dolby Access app that was trying to sell me Dolby Atmos for headphones for like $15. Furthermore, what content is available for Dolby Atmos besides games on a PC? Give me all the details you can please!Thanks,David

Yesterday I got the Yoga 720 (13") and I absolutely love it. However I uninstalled the Dolby Atmos drivers because I thought they are useless.

Good morning, afternoon, evening or whatever time it is in your country.  I'm (still) using my x220 as my main computer with series 3 docking-stations.I'd like to use it also as a media player. Unfortunately the dock has no HDMI-Output. So I have to use a DisplayPort to HDMI-Adapter to connect it to my AV-Receiver.Even though I have sources with Dolby atmos or true-hd sound I can't play them directly. My receiver only receives PCM signals, no native digital sound information. Is there any way to play / pass-through digital audio formats directly to the AVR? Best regards

The Dolby atmos Headphone is listed as a feature for Yoga 920 and should be useable with the Fall Creator's update. I updated Fall's Creator Update recently and now has the proper tabs for virtual surround sound with headphones. However, dolby atmos headphone can only be accessable through the Dolby Atmos app which requires payment after 30 days. Should I download it from somewhere else or is any other driver from Lenovo to enable it? Thx!

I'm using an 8-year-old Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop that came with Windows 7; I upgraded it to Windows 10--the Anniversary Update--last year, and installed the Creators' Update recently. Today, I downloaded the app "Dolby Access" from the Windows Store and went through the app's process for setting up Dolby Atmos for headphones. When I watch the demo videos supplied by the app--which at first displayed a message saying that they weren't playing in Atmos, but that message is gone--I don't hear effects above me or far behind me. I know that this surround virtualization using head-related transfer function is processed in software, so it should, in theory, work on all sound cards (integrated and otherwise), but I'm not hearing it, so I want to know what other people's experiences are. Please make sure to state what your sound setup is, starting with your sound card (if you are using a desktop) or what tablet or laptop you are using, and what sound chip is integrated into that tablet or laptop, and what headset or headphones you are using.
As I said, my laptop is an 8-year-old Dell Inspiron 1545, and regarding its audio driver, the driver is called "High Definition Audio Device" and the driver's provider is Microsoft.

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?

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?

Hello All,

I recently bought a cheap Aureal A3D 4 Channel Card and a relatively cheap 5.1 speaker setup. The Speakers are Logitech and have the capability for a 6 channel setup, however there is a matrix button that when you press it, your supposed to get the 6 channel effect on only 4 channel cards.

So I have it all set up like that. But I don't have a DVD Player on my computer. when I try to play games I can only get stereo sound, I was wondering what exactly i need to do in order to get the full Dolby sound. Do I need a DVD Player? Is it only capable with certain games? And How can I just TEST to see if it works properly?

Thanks for helping a newbie out!

And download a dolby digital trailer from

Unzip it once it downloaded and double click the file

Congratulations if it works

I have a Y530 and the Dolby sound was always louder through the right side. Not balanced at all. I made sure all the settings were correct but no matter what, it favors the right side. I went to Lenovo's site and downloaded a new driver that was dated newer than what I had but that not only didn't fix the problem it eliminated the Dolby system altogether. Now the inductive touch panel does nothing when I push the buttons for the sound settings. It's as if that driver removed the Dolby system. I'm still under warranty with this thing but I thought I'd try to get it resolved here before calling. I've yet to hear the "subwoofer" that is built in. What I get now is sound only from the two outer speakers and it's not very loud at all. Any advice would be great. Thanks. R

My PC arrived in March 2001 complete with Creative 4.1 surround sound speakers, a Pioneer DVD player and a copy of PowerDVD 3.0. I never played any DVDs and just used the drive, after installing Nero UDF Reader, as an adjunct to my CDRW drive, with Nero InCD installed.

After reinstalling Windows some time ago after creating a partition I never got round to reinstalling PowerDVD, but today I did so and expected to hear wonderful surround sounds from a DVD of the 1984 film Paris, Texas that was included with my daily newspaper. Whether the DVD boasts a surround sound soundtrack or not I don't know (and is not mentioned on the disk or envelope), but although the rear speakers are outputting sound it appears to be the same as the front ones!

Exploring the PowerDVD config menu for audio I noticed a panel, greyed out and the check box also, which read Use Dolby Pro Logic Decoder for 4/6 speakers. There is a check mark against Stereo output, but of course I cannot access the greyed out box. Does PowerDVD recognise if a disk has a surround sound audio track, and if not automaticallly go to stereo?

So, what am I supposed to do to access a Dolby Decoder? - it didn't come with Windows (ME) and apparently not with PowerDVD or the Creative software.

The DVD plays well in Stereo but it seems a waste having the other two speakers, which according to the Creative software are working normally, as in Left front, Left back etc.

Can anyone guide me on this please?

My win 8 package comes stock with Dolby advanced audio. I uninstalled the IDT driver and its software from device manager to roll back to an earlier version to solve a problem.. that didnt work, so i reinstalled the original drivers and it's software as both downloaded from hHP ( see me specs) and the one I had backed up from the original install. It should not have touched the Dolby application at all but now i cant find it? I used to open it by typing in Dolby in the search but that now has no Dobly results. I tried a regedit search and It didnt even find Dolby. What THE F is going on ?

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.

Just wondering is your comp win 7 sp1 or not

I have had the same prob a while back wmp used to work than it stopped working.

I had to move on to a different program.

I suggest going to a program called "media player classic".

Search on Google for somthing called "k-lite codec pack"

It comes with media player classic.

It is free

It should be able to play Dolby digital, DTS, and many others in up to 7.1 surround sound.

It worked for me until i moved on to blu rays than i had to go to a program called cyberlink 9 and sadly it is not free.

But for you i suggest mpc for your dvd's

Good luck hope this helps

P.s. My wmp is working again dont ask me how it might have been that i went to sp1 but who knows.

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.

Firdtly, I'm very impressed with the sound quality from my little notebook. the audio is further improved by selecting the Dolby encoder which gives a great rich sound from such a small device.

However, when dolby is selected I get a crakle on nearly all audio especialy anything streamed.

Has anyone else had this issue and have managed to fix it

Answer:NB520 Sound crackle with Dolby

>However, when Dolby is selected I get a crakle on nearly all audio especialy anything streamed
Does this happen if Dolby is NOT chosen?

I?ve got another notebook and I have a audio and video lag while streaming.
But I could solve this updating the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver to V10.1.0.1008.
Here is a directly download on the INTEL website: http://downloadmirror.intel.com/19607/a08/iata_cd.exe

I?m not quite sure if this could be helpful in your case but maybe it?s worth a try.

By the way; the sound driver is from Realtek. Maybe you should update this also and should choose the one from Realtek website.

Hello fellow Lenovo users, So I fiddled with the Lenovo settings and checked out the audio/media section. The Dolby Setting is really great for music etc. but when I enter a game, World of Warcraft or Counter Strike for example which are up to date games, the sound changes and it sounds really bad. The sound goes back to normal when I exit the game. It's like the setting is dynamic to what program I'm running or something. I even fiddled with some of the different settings like "Music" and "Dynamic", nothing worked. Hope you guys can help me since I really want that sound setting on since it sounds so great, but I have to turn it off due to low sound quality when opening up a game. - Mads

I am confused by this, but i am not sure that any of you would know, this concerns my cable for my TV. I have some channels that have digital (fiber optic) signal, the picture come in very clear but there is no sound. I got into the menu of the cable box and found that there is one setting that i can change to get sound and that is switching from Dolby Digital to Linear PMC. Can anyone tell me what is the difference between the two, and why only Linear PMC will allow me to hear sound from my cable box? If you can thanks.
 

Answer:Solved: Linear PMC vs. Dolby Digial Sound

I Don't know anything about digital cable or why you would have to switch it, I would think it would play either. Having said that both audio formats are the two main formats for audio on DVD's. PCM is a uncompressed audio format, it takes up a lot of space. Dolby Digital is similar to MP3, it compreses quite a bit and still maintains a very high quality and is the most common audio format on DVD's.

You do not have to switch anything in the DVD player to play either.

Hi All,

I've done a bit of research but can't find a specific fix for this.

I'm running sound from the mobo by spdif to a 2 channel dac, then analogue into my amp (which is 2 channel). I listen to stero mostly, and don't want surround sound. I get the sound issue when i'm unable to select a 2.1 channel option in the individual bluray's audio settings. If the blueray only has dolby, then i get a loud crackling buzz through the speakers.

I've tried adjusting the computer sound settings, but can't seem to find a way to get the computer to convert the Dolby into 2 channel. For Bluray i'm using PowerDVD8, have tried to find a setting in PDVD8, but no dice.

Any suggestions?

Much appreciated any help

Cheers.

Answer:Dolby Bluray sound able to convert to 2 channel

Performance is decreased but I believe Media Player Classic offers on the fly dts conversion to ac3, which will output to your computer's default sound setting. I haven't experimented with this a lot myself, primarily because mpc also likes to default to spanish language tracks for reasons I was never able to to resolve. Powerdvd 8 also has limited blu ray support all around. Powerdvd 10 is much more robust in it's support for blu ray. If upgrading is an option it will more than likely help with your problem as well.

I just got a y550 with windows vista on it and I was wondering does the Realtek HD Audio Manager have to be on in order for the dolby touch button to open up the dolby control center, because i disabled the realtek manager from starting up with the machine and when i press the touch button it doesnt want to open untill i open the realtek manager is open then it will open with no problem, i just dont like having 2 speaker icons open in the taskbar. Also is there a standby mode on this computer all i see is sleep and hibernate, i dont believe i have hibernate active but after awhile the computer will turn off and then when i hit the power it will say resuming windows

Answer:Dolby surround sound and standby/sleep

dolby drivers comes with realtek. it needs to work properly realtek is activated.to disable the icon open realtek audio manager click infoand unchecked the system tray icon. for hibernate, you may need to edit your power management settings.

Hi, my name is Shaun. I am using the E530, I think it's the 2605; I'm not sure. I've just recently did a system update and now, everytime I boot up my computer an error message pops up on my OS (upon boot) and the Dolby sound says since the update the driver requires 7.7. Since the update it's gone to 7.8 and isn't compatible; two questions.
1) Why would it not just do this automatically?
2) How can I fix this problem, as this laptop is brandnew and I have only had it for about 2 months?

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).

Dell 5150, Pentium D820 Dual Core 2.8 GHz, 250GB, SII Hard Drive (7200 rpm), 3 GB Memory, DDR2 SD RM, 533 MHz, nVidia Graphics 6800. I'm currently running Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit on this computer.

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?

Thanks, ms

This issue is driving me nuts. Every 5 seconds or so with Dolby Surround Sound on there's an audible crack or pop kind of in the audio. I've looked for solutions and tried everything I found but to no avail. The only thing that stops it from crackling is turning Dolby Surround Sound off, so I'm pretty sure it's the surround sound that's causing the crackle and not the actual headset. Is anybody else having this problem? Anybody found a solution? I would really like a solution if someone has them, thank you.

Problem:  In Windows 7 x64, sound quality is tinny and sounds very badly DSPed when Dolby Advanced Audio is activated.  Even setting all effects off and EQ off the sound is bad simply because Dolby is/was turned on.  Going to Sound > Playback > Speakers > Properties > Enhancements, checking Disable All Enhancements and clicking Apply clears up the sound, but then the EQ won't have any effect. Solution:  If you have Win 7 x64, uninstall the Win 7 driver (h0a114ww.exe) and instead install the Windows 8 driver (h0ac10ww.exe).  Note that this is NOT the Win 8.1 driver - that won't install under Win 7.  The sound quality will be way better when you use Dobly EQ and effects.  So far I haven't had any stability problems. I thought my E430 had the worst sound card ever until I upgraded to Windows 8 and installed the new driver.  I have Windows 7 dual booted and found the sound quality in Win 7 terrible so I played around with it and found the above solution.

Hi

The Toshiba European driver page provides two Conexant sound drivers for this notebook model.
+Sound Driver 4.36.10.0+
+Sound Driver 4.83.1.0+

I recommend checking the newer version 4.83.1.0
Uninstall the older driver firstly in device manager.

Reboot the unit and install the new downloaded driver.

Hope this helps to get better sound quality :)

I am very disappointed with the sound on my Yoga 2 Pro. ( It is six weeks old. ) It is very quiet and even with the sound on 100%  it is difficult to hear.  I looked on here and found some discussions last year which seemed to suggest it was related to windows 81. and incompatible drivers.  The instructions to fix it seemed a bit technical for lay people like me.  It has a Conexant sound card and latest win 8.1  It was advertised as supplied with Dolby Home Theatre which does not seem to be supplied. Someone here recommended I activate Dolby Digital app to see if that helped. I did that and  it did not.  I searched for Dolby using the Search charm and it reported nothing found under that name. I have noticed on the mixer bar that there is a short horizontal line against each of the bars, to the right, about half way up, and while the bars show green levels rising and falling, the green indicator never rises above the half way bar. Is this relevant?.  Suggestions please

I can't hear a proper dolby surround with my headphones. I think the reason for this is that the dolby settings of my Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card and Windows 7 are not "synchronized". I just watched a Gears Of War 2 walkthrough video, and weapon fire, explosions and talking, that came from the sides, back or far away, were very low or not audible at all.

OS: Windows 7 32-bit

How can I set this correctly?

Answer:Dolby surround of my sound card doesn't work properly

Well; you should be able to hopefully adjust that in the audio properties/settings by right clicking the speaker icon and selecting the sound card and if it is surround like you say; then there should be settings somewhere in there to adjust that. Also, if your sound card came with software like mine did; you might be able to adjust the settings using that as well. I cant say for certain 100% what settings etc. because i dont have the same sound card as you do. Hope this helps ya some. If not, post back and we can go from there.

Hi all, I just received my new X1 Carbon 2015. This is the first time I purchase a Lenovo Device after years with Dell. Unfortunately, the sound quality is horrible, but I am not sure if this is by design of if the laptop is faulty.. The sound is very bad when it is coming from the speakers, especially the left speaker: the sound is cracking and saturating. This is especially true when the Dolby is on, and you clearly hear the problem with standard Windows event sounds (for example the sound you can hear when you adjust the volume with the slide on the sound icon next to the clock), or any warning sound.No problem if I use an headset. Am I alone with that issue? Even if the device looks great, I have to say that I am overall disappointed by the laptop quality, especially regarding the cost of that device (this is the Core i7 with QHD touchscreen and 512GB PciE SSD):- When I received it last week, the left button from the trackpad was stuck (impossible to use). I had to gently scratch the side of the trackpad button to release the button. Probably some remains of the manufacturing blocking the button.- Then I noticed that sound issue.- And finally yesterday, I discovered a spot on the bottom right of the screen. Not a dead pixel, but a clear spot behind the pixels, 1 square millimeter,  reflecting the backlight. Thanks Pierre.  

Answer:X1 Carbon 2015 : Cracking sound speaker, especially with Dolby on (and other issues)

I have the exact same problem with the speakers, particularly the left one. It sounds totally distorted, cracking, and tinny when playing almost anything. As the OP pointed out, it's even worse with Dolby enabled. I will be calling customer support and/or service about this. I don't have any of the other problems the OP is experiencing. Except for the horrible, obviously broken sound quality - my new X1 Carbon 2015 has been a pretty good experience.

I checked out my Dolby Profile and saw that the equalizer wasn't moving at all and that it wasn't detecting any sound at all from any sound producing media I could test (from Youtube to Winamp).  I went to support.lenovo.com and found the latest driver for my Realtek Audio and downloaded it.

I found the Dolby file within an installation file and installed Dolby Home Theatre.msi from a folder called "PCEE". I restarted again. The same problem persisted.  Due to my frustration, I unisntalled OneKey Theatre. That was a mistake haha. I fiddled around the forums a bit and found no solutions whatsoever. Then I decided to dig into the problem myself and I soon found out that there were two Dolby softwares installed in my device. I believe it was called "Dolby Advanced Audio".

Dolby Digital Plus is a recording standard - for example the Lumia 930, 1520 and Icon will be the first phones (using Dolby Digital Plus) to record in 5.1 surround sound. The other two are the same pretty much as the Dolby enhancements don't work on the phone's speakers

Is there a way to completely remove Dobly and Dolby digital theater from my system. I really don't like Dolby and I dont see why I have to be forced to use it. Every time I try to uninstall the realtek driver it just installes again with Dolby. Dolby doesn't show anywhere in the "Uninstall apps and features" and it has no folder for it. Am I just stuck with Dolby forever? Thanks in advance.

Answer:How to get rid of Dolby

You might try changing the driver from RealTek to the built in High Definition Audio Device driver that comes with Windows.    It may lack some features, but it will play sounds just fine. Right-click on StartSelect "Device Manager"Locate "Sound, video and Game Controllers", and then left click to expand that sectionRight-click on your Realtek device and select "Update Driver"Select "Browse my computer for driver software"Select "Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer"Select "High Definition Audio Device" and then click Next Good luck,

What is this? I see it replaced my "enhancements" tab and got rid of my "speaker fill", so now my sound is worse than ever. All it has in the Dolby tab is "On/Off"... that's it.

Help?

Answer:Dolby Digital Plus?

Come on...

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?

For some reason, since today, my Dolby sound periodically turns itself off. I try to turn it back on again from the Lenovo Settings, and it will stay on briefly, and then go off later. I even updated the sound driver in Device Manager, did that and restarted, and its still doing it. What's going on?

Hello,What are the best settings for Dolby digital plus in editor?How should I increase the bass for it?Thanks 

Answer:Best dolby setting for z50-70

hi siddhantloya,
 
If you have a Dolby Advanced Audio manager under Control Panel then you can easily adjust the bass on the Dolby Equalizer.
  - Sample image
  - Sample video
 
You can also use the graphic equalizer and create a custom profile ane save it as Bass Boost for your preference.

Question: B520 SRS vs Dolby

Hey everyone.  So I have a B520 and it came with SRS Surround Sound, but a few months later I did some testing with upgrading to Windows 8 and found that while Lenovo didn't provide sound drivers for my computer and Windows 8, they did provide them for the B540.  That computer comes with Dolby Digital Audio v2 which honestly sounds much better on my B520!  I've since went back to Windows 7 and installed the driver package for the B540 and it seems to work.  Any thoughts?  It seems the B540 has the same audio chipset or that the drivers package just has an updated driver for my Realtek audio chipset, and of course the Dolby software I like.  Anyone think of any problems continuing to run Dolby on my system even though its not a B540?

Hey ive recently been looking into some 5.1 headphones. my on board sound doesnt support it so i need a new sound card. my quesion is there a difference between 5.1 surround cards and regular 5.1 any help would be great thanks.

Answer:5.1 surround vs 5.1 dolby

5.1 means it has two front speakers, a center channel, a sub, and two surround. no matter if it says "5.1 surround" it should be the same as regular 5.1.

Question: Dolby Question

I made a rather long post earlier today and got no response, so let me try something a little simpler.

I do not have a DVD Player in my computer. Just a cd player. I have a 4 channel sound card (Aureal A3D Vortex) And I want to hear Dolby sound on my video games. How can I do this? Is it possible without a DVD Player? Do the games even support it?

I am trying to play
Star Wars: Jedi Academy
Soldier Of Fortune II

Thanks.

Also, If It IS Possible to have full dolby 5.1 for these games, is there a small software app I can d/l that will TEST my dolby for me?

Thanks again
