OK I admit I am stupid in audio modifications. Here is my progress:

1. Audio codec, ALC1150 on ASUS MoBo Sabertooth X99. What other information would you need to make it work?
2. I uninstalled the old Realtek driver through deleting the device along with software from device manager.
3. I tried to install the modified driver using the setup executable. It gives me error during installation and the process was aborted automatically.

My question for you is would you mind posting a walkthrough either in text or pictures? From the sounds of it I would need to turn off SecureBoot in UEFI to get this to work.

My wife's old HP laptop had SRS Premium sound and it was pretty awesome outputing to a pair of BOSE speakers. Way better than my ASUS built in software.
yes you need to enable test mode secure boot must be disabled and for alc 1150 you can find this in your sound propereties just right button playback devices speakers propereties and you will see encore propereties when you click there it will comme another menu with driver and details you select details tab and you select hardware ids and you copy this what you see and paste me here I will create an inf with your machine

So I get it how to disable Secure Boot. But regarding Windows 10 Test mode. How do you enable it? From my understanding this is to help install driver not digitally signed, correct?

Also, how big of a difference does it make in terms of sound quality? I am using Bose companion20.

Now SRS is a DTS Company that's my second project to push and this effect only diferece is that the dts studio sound is for 5.1 speaker configuration also I think just is new version of srs in the moment I can open only settings panel its to complicated and so much things to deal with. This is called also SRSAPO3GUI For dolby atmos is possible via SPDIF but we need to find an file called dax3_api_release_x64.msi that's the dolby atmos api sdk required to install the app look in my archive folder dax3 and try to install it to see what message will come

I have only dax3_app_release_x64 this is not api sdk. api sdk for dolby atmos is different program

So I upload An archive with the driver that the setup launch error is maybe fixed

So Finally We have Dolby digital ouput fixed via SPDIF and HDMI

can you send me other features also please thank you I hope that soon micorsoft will add the hotfixes for that happen please read this https://blogs.windows.com/windowsex...84-pc-build-15208-mobile/#1uQlgCAFCCGvK8L4.97 you must update windows to this version and it will work
Changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
  • We fixed an issue where night light could get stuck in a disabled state.
  • We’ve updated Start to use the improved XAML scrollbar style announced during Creators Update development.
  • We fixed an issue from recent flights where dragging an app from Start’s All apps list into the tile grid would result in Start crashing.
  • We fixed an issue for those using Windows in Japanese, where on first login after an upgrade certain apps would unexpectedly appear at the bottom of the Start’s All apps list for an hour or until being launched, instead of the normal sorted position.
  • Since the preview picture in Start Settings only previewed background and theming changes, which are already available to be previewed on their corresponding Settings pages, we’ve made the decision to remove it.
  • We’ve improved the loading performance of the Notification Settings page.
  • Some audio drivers have an “encoding Audio Processing Object” feature; this is commonly known as “Dolby Digital Live” or “DTS Connect”. This takes the output of the Windows audio engine mix, encodes it (as Dolby Digital, DTS, or some other format) and sends it out over a S/PDIF optical link for decoding by an external audio receiver. An issue was introduced which resulted in this feature no longer working, which is now fixed.
  • We fixed an issue from recent flights resulting in Photos crashing if you opened a picture from the Collection page and then pressed the back button in the title back.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in Counter Strike Global Offensive hanging or freezing during game play on the latest builds (16176+).
  • We fixed the issue where pressing F12 to open the Developer Tools in Microsoft Edge while F12 is open and focused may not return focus to the tab F12 is opened against, and vice-versa.

As has been stated many many many times before in the other thread, Optical Dolby and DTS are broken in the current public Creator's Update. It has been fixed in the current Insider Build (Fast Ring) and will hopefully be fixed soon for the public/Creator's Update build.

So That's the Final Guide for installation of Driver.
1. go into Extras folder and do it all things write in Disabling.docx then do not restart.
2. go to settings - update - recovery then advanced startup and restart to enable the blue menu and press F7 to disable driver signature enforcement inside test mode.
3. install dolby tuning and profile creator first with the driver test mode debug ot dht release and chose install content assets. Do not restart
4. just install realtek driver via Setup.exe after installing select do not restart computer.
5. go to ds1 folder and install dolby digital plus HT
6. go to folder dax2 and instal first dax2_api_release_x64 then dax2updatedb and then dax2_app_release_x64.exe
7. go to folder extras and install audio by Harman and srsuiapo.
8 Finally run A2-V4.reg to get dolby home theatre v4 in place of dolby advanced audio v2
9. restart the computer and all done
