Did you try the alternative extension? At which point do you get the BSOD after the driver or the extension? and are you using HDMI?

I don't know which file is the alternative. BSOD always happening in the middle of driver installation ( disable driver signing ).
I didn't use hdmi for sound, just for graphic only. because my display ( Led ) only output dts 2 channel, through my Z906, Although i'm using spdif.

HDXRT4.inf and RTEXT2.inf. Else edit with notepad, search for (edit > find): HKR,InterfaceSetting\SysCustomizedFx\FX\0,%PKEY_FX_StreamEffectClsid%,,%DTS_SFX_CLSID%
Delete it, and save it, obviously you will need to disable driver signing, if not again but remove:

HKR,InterfaceSetting\OEMHDMISettingsOverride\EP\0,%PKEY_AudioEndpoint_FullRangeSpeakers%,%REG_DWORD%,0x0000003F
HKR,InterfaceSetting\OEMHDMISettingsOverride\EP\0,%PKEY_AudioEndpoint_PhysicalSpeakers%,%REG_DWORD%,0x0000003F

Tell me the result, and thankyou for your time.

Still No Luck. BSOD keep happening.
I'd already remove the registry just like you told me.

DTS DCH 6.0.9129.2 (Signed) - Fixed an issue that would cause BSOD on some devices.

See post 1 for the guide and download. Main and ALT2 are effected.

To improve analogue response with E-APO, untick use existing APO, always use SFX/MFX.

I'm back with the original alan finotty's driver. The newest one doesn't give me BSOD.
DDL & DTS is more easily activated now.

Ok, starting the process again.

This is what I get in Device Manager after restarting (about 3 times now)...

Realtek Audio remains after uninstalling it. & there are a heap of DTS Software Components (are these from my first fail attempt at installing your driver & if so, should I uninstall them all? They may belong to my motherboard?).

@seiya1

So its the extension? I tried to find out but got no as the result. I dont have 12XX, and are not getting the required feedback to fix it.
I sent Lai_yunie_yanto 6.0.9116.1 and he said BSOD, so I got nothing to work with.....

You guys are correctly uninstalling the previous driver and extension via Pnputil?
This will cause a problem if you do not.

I deleted “Realtek Audio” but didn’t restart to prevent it from re-installing.

I then proceeded to the next stage...

Now I can’t delete the file packages in Command Prompt (tried “oem87.inf”) - message says “Deleting The driver package filed; one or more devices are presently installed using the specified INF”

But I don’t have ‘Microsoft Audio Device’ listed in Device Manager.

I have “AMD High Definition Audio Device” however.

@Ralfi

I will do Teamviewer session soon, if you want, it's quicker than explaining
Remote access? I'm not sure.

Anyway, I need to make dinner. Chat later.

Yes, but I can just watch, and use chat. Else it will take some time to diagnose the Windows issue you have there.

----

@seiya1 @Lai_yunie_yanto

Instructions: Right click "DTS DCH" in device manager, and uninstall, tick delete driver. DO NOT restart, now open 'command prompt' as admin, and type: pnptuil -e
Search through the screen for 'DTS', and even 'Realtek' and 'AFF', any you see take note of the omeX.inf, and then type: pnputil -d oemX.inf.

See post 1 for full details, if you have multiple extensions they may be the issue. DO NOT use third party apps to remove drivers.

Now I need to know if the BSOD happens with the driver (first question using 'Install'), or the extension, the second question.

If you cant use 'Install' via double click, you already have an issue with Windows.

----

Additional notes:

Both of you have had issues with Alans driver, and then switched to mine (first time on your machine), most likely following the guide to remove Alans.
When I had Alans driver and switched, without the guide, his extension remained installed and caused problem with my new driver.

Now you have switched to Alans driver, its similar in the way its now the first time on your machine (was fully removed).
My extension probably will do nothing with Alans driver installed, if you did not remove it.

Try uninstall everything DTS related, and all Realtek or AAF audio drivers as in the guide, if not, use DDU, Display Driver Uninstaller, as suggested by another member, in the "uninstall audio" option, i know that the guide mentions to not use third party apps for uninstalling drivers, but in my case it was the only way to uninstall drivers to stock, only then i could delete drivers and extensions using pnputil, hope it helps and lets wait for ferather for more advice.

I have not tried DDU, I am not sure if its ok, the driver store explorer app breaks things I know that for sure, it doesn't remove registry entries and caused a major problem with updates.

I do use 'Device Remover' Device Remover 0.9.5212.27342 for Windows - Download (uptodown.com), but usually I just use Windows pnputil.

You may also need to unplug your PC's network cable or turn off WiFi, so Windows doesn't download drivers, or interrupt installs.

@seiya1, If its the extension and not the driver, there is one line of code I can remove, but I don't see a problem with it.
The same code is also in the driver, so if it is an issue it's very bespoke, but I can ofc change it.

If you really have to use manual install due to broken Windows, you want HDXRT4 and RTEXT2, starting with HDXRT4.
Wait for the red cross to turn into a speaker before you install the extension.

Also: Delete - C:\Windows\System32\DTS After uninstalling all drivers and extensions.

Yes, i'm sure i have uninstalled all DTS or AAF audio related drivers or extensions with pnputil (admin privileges) several times trying with diferent new versions of your drivers, to avoid conflicted drivers and do a clean install with no luck, resulting in BSOD after installing the driver (first question).
Now, editing the driver HDXRT4.inf as you mentioned in a previous post, and saving changes, only then it let me install the driver with no BSOD (disable driver signing), after that in second question (install extension) now it gives me the BSOD :( i have wifi or cable disconnected to avoid interrupts, I tried again all the process clean installation with Alan's recent driver, and the same old problem only activates dolby not DTS, so i had to rollback to driver -AAF 6.0.9107.1 DTS- that's the only one i have left that functions for me with DTS interactive (gives me better sound than dolby, it installs correctly, but no dts x for me), i know it's recommended to not use any third party app to uninstall drivers, but DDU does the trick in my case, and i don't think DDU is the problem because i can install your modded AAF 6.0.9107.1 DTS without problem, maybe i'm wrong, i'll use that in the meantime 'til the next updated DTS driver and use your suggestion to download 'device remover', in the case of a 'manual install' i've tried with HDXRT4.inf or RTEXT2, windows says it can't install because "The specified location does not contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the location contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with the Windows x64 Edition operating system." so my guess is that something happens with the driver or extension that does'nt recognize or conflicts with S1200A, sorry if it's a long post, hope this info helps.

"Also: Delete - C:\Windows\System32\DTS After uninstalling all drivers and extensions."

Got it, thank's

I think I know what do do, very valuable information thankyou very much.

----

Me taking notes:

"Now, editing the driver HDXRT4.inf as you mentioned in a previous post, and saving changes, only then it let me install the driver with no BSOD"
Already removed the HDMI bit so thats: HKR,InterfaceSetting\SysCustomizedFx\FX\0,%PKEY_FX_StreamEffectClsid%,,%DTS_SFX_CLSID%

"After that in second question (install extension) now it gives me the BSOD :(" Is this the main extension or alt?

I will fix it very shortly based on your results.

====

DTS DCH 6.0.9129.4 (Signed) - Removed some code based on results, moved some codes from the extension to main drivers.

Please make a restore point -- Feedback is required. See post 1 for the download and guide.
Please also remove the Ultra and Sound Unbound apps, before removal.

----

If this version still does not work, your device does not operate in the required manor to support ultra.
You will either have to use Alans driver, or this more dated DTS version.

Front panel? Or the specific headphones mode? To do the specific mode, you use the Realtek Audio Console to disable detection, then near the bottom enable separate stream mode, then restart your PC.

If I plug in headphones, with the normal settings I do get detection. Out of curiosity what ALC do you have?

----

Briefly looking at Google, the only 12XX chip I see that officially supports DTS:X is 1220-VB?

It´s the alt extension, also i tried again now in the second question with the main, resulting it installed correctly without BSDO, but as i mentioned earlier, in my case even installed doesn´t detect any audio device, because of S1200A i suppose...

i ´ll try with these DTS DCH 6.0.9129.4, and share results.

That would be ALC285, you will probably need ALT1, that series uses different codes for speakers-headphones.

@seiya1
Ok good no BSOD, I will a device with S1200A to write the correct codes for it, as like above. Thanks for tests.
All errors are related to codes inside the .inf files, the drivers are no different to others.

Its possible to try the main .inf, if that was what you where using in DTS DCH 6.0.9129.4, cannot confirm it.

I apologize to anyone getting difficulties, I am unable to write for all ALC's, only the one I have.
My ALC889 accepts every code change I make, so hmmm, universal it seems.

If you think 2013 is old, ALC889 was released in 2008.

====

Done, make sure you uninstall all DTS apps after you uninstall the driver and extension, try the main driver first.
See post one for the download link and uninstall-install guide.
