You should disable Windows driver auto updates, then remove all drivers, till there no sound drivers-extensions-software components, then install.

A general rule with any modded driver, although personally I don't disable, some of will HAVE to (no choice).
Manual control is the best control, updates you download manually too.

I have been running AAFOptimusDCHAudioPack-HDA9517 on my strix z590 for a couple months, I tried the updated pack and when the SB thing opened it said no compatible audio devices (I never even opened or used it until now), have I been using them on the wrong chipset? is there a way to know if they're 'working' with the AAFOptimusDCHAudioPack-HDA9517 version? thanks

creative mb5 still not work on ALC4090 - The current selected audio device is disabled, not present, not supported by the application, or has unplugged jack connections.

Latest driver didnt support ALC4090

device id USB\VID_0DB0&PID_36E7&REV_0001&MI_00

Not true, many top boards still use HDA, I am not sure why you would bother with USB if you are using stereo only. Multichannel takes up more bandwidth than stereo ever will.
AFAIK those USB models are still an ALC 1220 (or similar such as 1200), but modified to suit a USB, anyhow these APO's are for HDA, not USB.

An APO is essentially a software DSP (digital signal processor), such as Creative MB5. Name a top of the line Creative discrete using USB.

Also to clarify, USB Realtek wont output a better quality than HDA, given the same DAC and so on, in fact potentially worse, due to the lack of supporting APO's.


If anything needs more bandwidth its SPDIF and HDMI, in addition GPUs which output on HDMI, use HDA.

Also as a side note (USB) and not to sound rude, but in order to use more than a 44-48k sample rate, the hardware must be able to work at the given frequency.
Amplifiers and speakers all have frequency response ranges, so for 384k samples, the hardware must respond up to 192khz.

Sample rate /2 = frequency range.

How can I remap one of my extra back ports to be a headphone jack so I can keep my speakers and my headphones plugged in ?

Last post I see from AAF related to an update is the 25th May. 31st seems correct (probably a quick edit).

In terms of Realtek, there should be nothing to fix unless there is a specific Realtek issue. I don't myself receive, nor likely does AAF, issues related directly to official Realtek files.
I would guess AAF is now more like myself, and focuses on third party APO's (DTS, Dolby, Other), Realtek file updates wont do much if already working.

Any changes between Realtek APO versions should be subtle, if any, unless there is a bug.

----

It's probably easier if @AAF Optimus released [test] extension packs, that can be installed on his current AAF, that allows users to [test] updates-changes.

Example: Dolby [test] extension update, that installs over the current one, or what not.

====

Windows can also be a bee-itch, in many ways, example: how many of you have residual endpoints?

Render Endpoints.png

That's Realtek and AMD GPU only, 6 total render endpoints.

As we can see APO's can-do-will read these entries.

Hmm yes you do, probably needs a clean, plus it looks like the Interactive key is misspelled, typo. See below.

DTSEnableInteractive | DTSProductType

====

@AAF Optimus, If a driver is uninstalled (and all residual) and disappears from 'device manager', then the audio service and endpoint stopped, Windows should remove residual endpoints.

Device + drivers removed (no device in device manager) >> services stopped >> ** new driver +other added >> services started.

This however does not fix an issue when the previous driver was Windows, it can still keep residual endpoints in the registry, but not after an actual driver uninstall.

** Add other cleanups such as DTS registry data.

----

You can manually stop all audio services, then delete the id's in [Render] and [Capture] and DTS APO [ID] (registry) - Although sometimes you need [Trusted Installer].
Once deleted, restart your computer, the audio services will start as normal and rebuild all the existing endpoints. < Also resets configuration.

ExecTI (winaero.com) < Run apps-other as Trusted Installer.

If you want DTS Interactive on USB Realtek, then you can use this pack. Just make sure you follow the instructions for USB, and USB reg.
You can use the HDA setup on Realtek HDA, and other HDA devices such as a GPU (HDMI). USB is different.

My S1220A displays channel numbers in the balance option, USB shows channel id's.

Disable Windows store updates https://ibb.co/kX3TFC0, uninstall Sound Unbound. Make sure DTS APO Service is running (might be renamed to AAF).

You can use 7-Zip * as admin (right click), and delete leftovers before re-installing.

Sometimes I do, sometimes I am lazy. I also reuse screenshots, again being lazy, plus I answer quite a few questions per day.
