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

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.
Tried the DTS DCH 6.0.9129.4, clean install, alt2 driver (first question), resulting in BSOD, by the way, after that to clean the residual dts driver and extension, this time using pnputil cannot uninstall driver or extension no matter what, even using 'device remover' and restarting doesn't let me uninstall, so i searched the pnputil command, i found that you can force the uninstall of the drivers or extension adding '-f' to the pnputil command, for example ' pnputil -d oemX.inf - f, this worked for me, as to not use another third party app, hope this can help others with this problem uninstalling drivers, i'm using now the dated DTS driver you suggested, they install and work fine, only the DTS effects app does'nt work.

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.
Link to my driver-- HP Pavilion Gaming - 15-ec0101ax Software and Driver Downloads | HP® Customer Support
Hope it helps you to make changes in the driver so it can work on my laptop too.
@Ferather by the way where can i learn to make my own code for my laptop.

I may have to borrow your PC if you are willing, the latest edition (which I know has the original name: DTS DCH 6.0.9129.1), should be working if the dated version does.
I checked it over yesterday, this being said, it appears you may be having trouble with Windows based on the issue you had removing the driver.

The main driver should now support all chips, where the alt drivers are secondary support, due to some changes.

Edit: According to the generic driver (link below in reply), installing in safe mode can fix BSOD.

Edit 2: There might be two lines of code I can remove from DTS APO4x that is not present in another DTS S1200A driver.
I will try it on my machine to see if all still works, but I don't guarantee it will work for you.

You can just about see the codes are for speaker and headphone configuration, and they are for different chips.

--

Download the latest driver for your motherboard, or another generic package such as this one. Then my drivers to obtain information and files for DTS APO1 and DTS Connect.
I made an extension that is meant to bolt onto a pre-existing driver, although I have not updated it, you will want the codes from it, and the APO4x folder.

You add all this to your functioning driver, you may need to find and tweak some lines of code, but it will mostly work strait away.

https://www.mediafire.com/file/p3wp00zban63gfi/DTS-X_6.0.9126.1.7z < Extension, not updated.

Good luck, many questions I can answer, but maybe not all.

:)

====

DTS DCH 6.0.9129.2 (Signed) - See post one for the download and uninstall-install guide, and other info.

Removed various APO4x codes, increased compatibility, increased response rate.
E-APO is now completely optional, although suggested.

Optional: Add DTS SFX to analogue if needed, however it can cause lag and instability on some systems.

Bro i just installed the files u gave and it worked without doing any kind of change. I used the driver given my HP.

Hehe. When you have time try the latest full package, or not its up to you. Don't forget to install the Ultra app .inf.
You might also need to setup the SFX, MFX and EFX manually using the APO Tool, see post 1.

Did you also want DTS Interactive? I can add it to the extension.

Yes we do!

Btw, @alanfox2000 and his APO DRIVER & FX CONFIGURATOR (and prolly custom nVidia driver, and what else¿) contains trojans and cryptominers. I made sure his GitHub went down when I found out.

@Alan Finotty 's shit is difficult to uninstall and pings his GitHub every hour..

They are using built-in Windows Remote "Business" Services to Trojan your PC the fuq up, so stay away from them.

The mission with unleashing the DTS X Ultra monstrum is the beginning of the everlasting (maybe?) eon of Aquarius. We need to be pure in our intentions, for they will colour each and every sound profile there is out there (your souls). I speak to Ferather every day, and he is a really nice bloke. I vouch for him, but I am limited in IT knowledge. Always shitcheck what you download with data and connection sniffers. PM me if you need awesome security tools. (Like the best there is/was available)

All love from $weeden! :love:

::Your full driver gave me error::
This device cannot start. (Code 10)

The policy object does not exist when it should


maybe i was unable to uninstall the driver properly.

@bryan---

Windows is really annoying, no idea why you got code 10, that's new. Even the generic driver and others have this issue, some have guides for BSOD, such as using driver removers and safe mode.

Always run pnputil or similar after removing drivers, they nearly always leave additional .inf files that can cause problem with other drivers, or in the future.
When you uninstall my driver via right click > uninstall > tick delete driver, the driver is removed, only the extension remains (pnputil time).

This is the reason I wrote the guide in post 1, and why I say DONT skip steps, failing to restart your PC at the right time also causes problems (some people think they can skip it).

99.9% of the time I do a remote view with driver customer, they have residual files and extensions from other drivers, and past installs.

----

When I fresh install Windows, then do drivers, setup and essential software, I make a full partition backup, using Paragon. I can break Windows as much as I like.
All my main files and games are on another partition, and Windows before backup was already setup, I format the drive and restore in 6 minutes.

https://easyupload.io/jj7w0c < Paragon Backup and Recovery, USB or DVD.

====

I updated the DTS:X extension, at this time I did not add DTS Interactive, as I need to override OEM settings, and my first attempt did not work.
The extension requires a DTS (Xperi) supporting driver, it will have an extension .inf with the name Xperi (DTS).

I have setup the extension with composite SFX, MFX and EFX, you may need to adjust them.

No problem, enjoy, you will need to use separate headphones mode, which is disable front panel detection, and enable separate stream, then you get headphone config :)

Forgot to say restart PC after enabling headphones mode.

Does anyone have DTS Sound Unbound 1.3.3 APPX - or any version from 2018 / 2019?



I've searched for it all over the web, @alanfox2000 had a MEGA.nz link that's down :/

Here are some additional steps in you getting problems with Windows and BSOD. If this if your first time installing follow the guide in post 1, and add below as additional steps.

First disable Windows audio service (see screenshot), then continue to right click uninstall the driver via device manager (tick delete driver).
Then you need to remove the extension via pnputil (see post 1), and run a registry cleaner 2-3 times, then restart.

After the restart disable audio again, double click 'Install' in the DTS DCH driver package, then restart.

====

I also suggest replacing Neo effects (stereo expand nearly always sounds terrible), with E-APO and my stereo upmixer configuration (see my signature below), you can also add more enchanments.
Optional: add the DTS SFX key to stream effects for analogue before you setup E-APO. This way it will make a composite with it (use existing APO), with high response rate.

1.png 2.png

Yes it works with SPDIF, but dont apply the SFX key to digital, its not intended for it, and you will get no audio.

====

I forgot to mention in post 1, that if you want the digital decoder to stay always on, enable stereo mix. Set it to play to digital, and then mute the stream, this will make your receiver stay on.

1.png 2.png

You will need to show disabled devices to see it, by right clicking in the white space.

No I was going to clean his PC and install it for him, everytime I do I find Alan Finotty, AlanFox and sometimes Realtek files. I remove them, and install without issues.
I will also show you and remove a certificate from unmentioned name that gives their codes root permission on your device.

----

Code signing only, no other purposes, you can also see your other certificates, and their purpose.

If you follow the guide and fully remove Realtek-Alan Finotty-Alan Fox- Unsigned drivers, (pnputil) then it suddenly works, please direct all complaints to that person.

No problem, (obviously no BSOD), Did you download the provided app from the link? If you did you will need to read the readme and disable store auto updates.
The Ultra app can be updated without issues, Sound Unbound cannot be updated as it has license built in, and the update will remove it.

If the update installs, remove it, and install provided SU. Let me know if you still have an issue, enjoy!

DTS DCH 6.0.9129.4 (signed) - see post 1 for the download and guide.

Added a fix for non Realtek devices that have been programmed manually to work with Ultra (see a video here).
> After a fresh restart, you will need to change to Realtek then back, or start with Realtek.

Updated APO4x dlls, added codes to support more systems.

You may also do the trick with Realtek headphones, for HDMI-DP to headphones, see here. Might work.

----

Notes:

Some DTS Custom systems may not accept APO1 and APO4, and only work with APO3, the reason for this is unknown to me at this time.
I don't have BSOD issues, so no direct attempts have been made with this update. Try the below if you have issues.

----

@oytun

Ok, remove all drivers, clean. Disable driver signing, then in my drivers replace 'rtkvhd64.sys' with one from a functioning driver, try then.
BSOD doesnt tell me what the issues is, files, codes, combinations, Windows faults, so on. All missing.
