    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    Just wanted to give people a heads up if anyone here uses Equalizer APO, Realtek drivers 2.79 used with E-APO cause the Enhancements tab to disappear and get rid of Room Correction and Speaker Fill in the Realtek GUI which is extremely important for people using any surround system as it gives...

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    That sounds wrong because HDMI can support uncompressed 8 to 9 channels of audio and doesn't need to use DTS-C or DDL. I love ASUS but that sounds like a down right excuse on their part for lack of an answer. Does the HDMI setting under the Realtek Audio Control Panel give you the option to...

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    Multi Channel on most AV receivers I've used don't say or use a multi channel option on HDMI, it just does it and says if it's 5.1 or 7.1/2, on a console it says whether it uses DTS or Dolby Digital even through HDMI because that's the way their setup on consoles, they still use either of those...

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    Well I know when it comes to consoles they use compressed audio so it gets sent through HDMI as DD or DTS and the receiver will still decode it as such. On PC since HDMI is lossless up to 7.2 it's hard to know for sure if it uses DD or DTS or if it's just like 6CH analog and requires no...

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    Just get a cheap one, most sound cards are kinda gimmicky and just cost more because they use certain features like headphone amplifying which is only good for extremely pricey headphones like Audio Technica's. I would recommend a cheap Sound Blaster although their drivers are pretty crappy...

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    Does your receiver have a DSP (Digital Sound Processing) board or feature? Both of my Yamaha do and it adds features like reverb to digital or analog audio and produces what sounds like a short lived echo, I find it highly annoying and listen to everything STRAIGHT because if something is meant...

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    That means it didn't work. It should be using DDL OR DTS at all times if it's working correctly depending on which one you selected, I personally selected DTS since it's more widely used.

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    Does your Sony come up saying it's decoding Dolby Digital or DTS? Also, you can only choose one or the other, either DDL or DTS since it'll be running 24/7. I'm not sure if the GTX660 support 5.1 over HDMI without being patched into the on board sound which would be the same thing as using...

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    DTS does the same thing which is generally used more than DDL because it supports most games and movies, DDL usually only supports a handful of games but a large selection of movies. When I used DTS or DDL all games and movies were outputted in stereo and mixed with virtual surround upon output...

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    I had that issue too, so I did the DLL swap to enable the options and while it worked the DTS and DDL 5.1 still sounds like stereo surround, not true surround. I'd still like to hear other peoples inputs on that.

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    The MS driver will default upon restart, that's no issue, it's the same as the VGA default driver it uses when there are no drivers installed, just install the new drivers or the ones from this thread. The Microsoft drivers cannot be deleted and they cannot cause problems with the actual drivers...

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    I was having that issue when I first installed these drivers, I think it's using part of the old installed drivers that were not deleted, at least that was my problem. Once I did a clean install of the drivers everything worked perfectly. You should try Driver Sweeper and use it to clean the...

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    Like many others I signed up just to add my two cents, although I've been lurking around TPU for quite some time. I think these modded drivers are fantastic, a little bit of a pain to install but when I did successfully install them it does show up as I'm using DTS 5.1 ALL the time, but it isn't...
