whoa Dolby digital plus :D thanks!

Alan, I was wondering, is there any way of forcing the drivers to install DTS instead of Dolby Digital Live (5.1 Surround) for the default format in Windows 10 under Realtek Digital Output ?
Good. At the moment I still do not know any way to do this. But I'll search.

Alan, the DRIVERPACK #2 - WITH DOLBY DS1 - DOLBY DIGITAL PLUS HOME THEATER *has* DTS Interactive (5.1 Surround), as well as Dolby Digital Live (5.1 Surround) as choices for the default format in Windows 10!

First time ever I've seen both! Thanks!

Thank for the driver Alan, for sure you are doing a great work!
So i installed the driver, it installed fine. But though i select to install dolby i do not get that software shown in the images.. The Audio manager sure has the options to enable Dolby and Dolby Theater but that's it, only turn it on/off, i can not open any dolby window. Sound Blaster seems to install though and i can access the UI, though i do not have previous experience with it and do not know if it is worth using or not.. Definitely turning dolby on makes a difference in sound, i can hear it, but i cannot configure anything.
Is it something i am missing or doing wrong?

PS. I am not in my PC right now I am using the option names as i can remember them, so forgive me if they are not accurate enough.. :)

The "Dolby" folder is located on your Desktop.

In this case, we need to modify the driver for this built-in sound card.

@ScrooW @Aleksandar012 @tonnydonovan
Please use the file below to correct the problem.

1 - Open the RAR file and extract the file "rtkhdaud.dat" to "%systemroot%\System32\drivers" and replace. After that just restart the PC.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
In the next packages this will already be fixed.

How do I revert back to the default realtek drivers? I already did DDU to completely remove the realtek mod and it seems there are still remnants persisting after installing the official drivers.

I downloaded and installed the official one from my motherboard's site and I remember precisely how the gui look. This look totally different

Go to the list of installed applications in settings, and search for "Realtek Advanced HD Audio". Then just uninstall.

Go to "%systemroot%\System32\drivers" and delete the file "rtkhdaud.dat". If necessary, restart your computer.
But before that, note that there is an icon that looks like a folder in the upper right corner of your realtek panel. Go there and turn off the second option.

Usually after I plugged my headphones in the front audio, my speakers plugged at the rear automatically gets disabled. With the modded drivers both my headphone and speaker works simultaneously. Also the sound coming out of my right speakers seems to be louder than on the left. I tested it on my headphones and it sound normal as it should be. I dunno could be my set-up? My board is using ALC 1220.

FIXED THE PROBLEM REPORTED BY SOME MEMBERS OF THE FORUM, WHEREEVER, EVEN CONNECTING A HEADSET TO THE FONTAL PANEL ON THE PC OR TO THE PORT P2 OF THE NOTEBOOK, THE REAR PANEL CONTINUED SOON.

Well, my friend, I've just posted new driver package links in the post above where this problem has been fixed. Install it and once installed, restart your pc. Once this is done, go to the folder icon in the upper right corner of your realtek panel, and if the third option is unchecked, check it and you're done.
