What do you mean by all options? the 16/24bit stereo in the list, or using the Dolby enhancements?
16/24bit stereo. When Dolby enhancements (dolby home theater) are on, it is still stereo, not 5.1. Actually, digital output does not detect 5.1 somehow according to this.

No option to redirect headphones and speakers.Also if i turn dolby digital plus or home theater 4,it sounds like laptop speakers.:confused:

Run the application below. It will look for these files that are conflicting with your current version of Dolby PCEE4 and delete them automatically. Then restart your computer and see if it has normalized.
Sadly this not works. :(
After that the Dolby application error had appeared on the screen.
I had deleted the Dolby driver, but not a reaction. :(
I had installed your Speakers/Headphones driver, is this the problem?

Open RAR and extract rtkhdaud.dat to "%systemroot%\System32\drivers"

I am uploading the new installer already fixed on this back panel issue addressed in the forum. In a few minutes I'll be posting the link.
After that, restart your PC.

FIXED DRIVER LINK (PCEEv4)

Hello again. Thank you very much for your effort but still i hear hissing sound by using 5.1 format options. Even though in a new version "Dolby/DTS" is unlocked when i use 5.1, there is no use of it, since it doesn't change anything except of letting to push music/movie buttons and get nothing else but hissing while playing audio.

Once again i'll try to clear out the situation:
  1. I'm trying to play audio via optical cable a 5.1 audio system using MSI motherboard and Realtec audio card. Speakers work fine using TV as audio source via optical cable.
  2. Thanks to Alan Finote, I've downloaded drivers which let me play at least stereo by using formats 16 and 24 bits (just noticed that 192000hz make blerbing sounds while others quite low quality but still a bearable sound).
  3. Only "digital output" in audio manager works for me playing via SPDIF .
  4. I get no 5.1 experience since drivers don't work for this situation. Using 5.1 default format options hear only hissing sounds (kind of different hissing in DTS interactive and Dolby digital live. No normal sounds. When i play no music, no hissing. When i play, it hisses all the time monotonously).

By using this default format option, I still hear hissing sound, no audio.
1548517599700.png

Thank you for unlocking this, but it didn't change the situation.

Please help me, it's really unbearable to buy such audio system and have nothing but poor quality stereo sound or hissing by using 5.1 options. Maybe there is something I could send you to clear out a problem more deeply? I'm not a programmer but I will try to get a code or such if you explain how. Thank you very much!

If your goal is 5.1 Surround, the way will be to unlock the Dolby Digital encoder through PCEEv4, as in the image below by @alanfox2000 :

Unfortunately, i have nothing like that. Even upper tabs are in two rows and the name includes no S/PDIF like in your sample picture. Attaching what do I see.

Any solutions? Dolby digital live and dts interactive make different hissing sounds, that's it. No audio whatever i try using 5.1 settings.

You can through device manager force another version of the Realtek drivers onto your system, so long as the win64 directory from the install directory is there. You will retain the sound blaster components. It might just be this version of the driver that is problematic for you.

How come this is happening, i installed everything correctly and this happens in soundblaster uwp connect. i know that i got it working because it doesn't come up with the sound device not detected message. I have soundblaster cinema 5's kga file in the creative folder directory.

I found the perfect setting for classical music, and share it here.
feel that this setting is the most similar to lossless compression music with losslessness
also music quality of the creative CiNEMA 3 and Dolby ATMOS For Gaming combo is probably fantastic !

i using the Realtek ALC 1150 + Creative CiNEMA 3 + Dolby Digital Plus APO

edit: I just found that the dialog enhancer made a fast beat and responded to the treble in a friendly manner

Creative CiNEMA 3
SURROUND 40% / 67 % / 80 %
CRYSTALIZER 100%
BASS 2%
SMART VOLUME _ LOUD
DIALOG PLUS 1%

Dolby Digital PLUS
Voice + Rich
Sound Virtualizer ON ( 2.1 Channel only )
Dialogue Enhancer OFF
Volume leveler ON or OFF

I did the installation as recommended, but I'm still getting these messages. My notbook is an Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G. Something that tells me to do it. Thank you.

Hi @all
Who can deliver me a specially for Asus MB's build Realtek ALC892 (https://www.asus.com/de/Motherboards/SABERTOOTH_990FX_R20/specifications/) modded Driver for using the full Audio-featured Experience?

In Audio-Hardware, I've an AVR347 from H/K in use per 7.1-Ch-surround, connected both with SPD/IF & HDMI

At last I found here the "Realtek Mod Suite for Win10", was tryin' to Install, with no success. Actually I'm using the "Realtek_hda_8059_dolbyHPhonesDTSrdy"-Driver, but I'm even not fully satisfied. :-(
So please, who can help me?

sorry leanmattos. your Acer A515-51G computer uses a Realtek SST (Smart Sound Technology) audio device [as indicated in the screenshot saying "Realtek High Definition Audio(SST)"] and the SBConnect and Dolby enhancements do not work with SST based Realtek devices (therefore Alan's modded driver will not support the Realtek SST audio device). Realtek HD Audio [SST] have HWIDs beginning with INTELAUDIO instead of HDAUDIO. use another computer that does not use Realtek SST audio and uses the "regular" Realtek HDA audio device (w/out SST).

Now, I've found & installed this Package, my rear Jack-Connectors Area will do crazy:
Anmerkung 2019-01-30 183514.jpg

I've put all 4 Jacks in, but if I do the green Front-Jack out, the Center/Subwoofer & Side-Surround will be active (like above)

Now I put him in, it will deactivate the named Connectors :-( Full Crazy :-(

Sorry, but how should I exactly do? My hdxrt.inf-File got totally other Informations as shown in the Att. 110058, which is unrecognizable to do so, & what about Genkga? The Att. 110059 is just only written in Chinese :-(
So you can please help me? Eventually in German?

1. Open device manager, Software Components -> Sound Blaster Connect -> Creative Audio Effects Component.
2. Check if the signer is WHQL (not PureSoftApps CA).
3. If so, remove Creative Audio Effects Component (tick checkbox [remove driver software] ).
4. Remove "Realtek(R) Audio " but don't tick checkbox [remove driver software]
5. Disconnect to internet (disable network adapter)
6. Press "Scan hardware changes" icon (menu button)
7. You should find "Generic Software " under Software Components (if you find Creative Audio Effects Component go to step 3)
8. Run install.cmd (SBC UWP mod driver installation folder)
9. You will find "Creative Audio Effects Component" and the signer is "PureSoftApps CA"

Note: MBAPO264.dll & MBAPO232.dll should be 2.0.0.14

About the Link for (Gen)KGA: I can't do with, and the Application can't found in my all folders/drives

But the other Setups, incl. the Digital Signing on/off was done properly
Only the Jack-Detection for Center/LFE is blinking on/off :-( So now I think, this is a Bug to fix...
