Hello, I take the initiative and create this thread since the old one is getting too big and people mix windows 7 and windows 10 methods.

The purpose of this thread is to help people, who are using windows 10 and Realtek R2.80 or newer driver version, unlock DTS and Dolby Digital playback sound.

Please DO NOT post here on how it worked for you on windows 7 or with older versions of Realtek driver etc...

Thanks.

Wait. what?

Iv'e just installed the R2.79 driver with windows 10 and Logitech Z5500 speakers - the DTS/DDL works flawlessly.
motherboard is Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 5 (ALC1150) , which does not come with DTS support naturally.

if R2.80 does not work, why not install R2.79?

I already did install R2.79 and it works fine, but this is for newer driver since the old one was not optimized for windows 10. Thats the point of the thread here.

I can confirm that the R2.80 driver works (at least for my motherboard) with the patcher from page 47 of the other thread (this one) using a guide from page 62 (this one). My motherboard, a Gigabyte GA-H170M-D3H, has ALC892. Both DTS and Dolby Digital Live work properly.

It worked for me (Dolby & DTS are options for me now). However whenever I open my audio panel is says there is a problem and my Realtek HD audio manager pops up for no apparent reason. Uninstalling.

I've red the other win 7 8 8.1 topic with all the mods and versions, tried a lot of them and nothing worked. Don't know what to do anymore :(((
I have z97 extreme 4 with Realtek ALC1150 and use it with optical out port that connect the 5.1 receiver. Recently reinstalled windows and the new win10 does't have dts interactive support:( If i set it to that option no sound goes to the receiver.
Right now i use 6.0.1.7541 realtek manager with 2.79 drivers i think, 2.80 didn't work. Used that modified ones...no result also. The thing is that with the previous windows i managed to get that sound working but with this one not a chance so far.
Windows is win10 Enterprise LTSB version.- 10240 version

People I just made a MOD Driver on Realtek by enabling SRS Premium Sound. This is valid for Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 (in my case). Follow the link below.

https://1drv.ms/u/s!Avmj2CMC-f2boHnScN-5QGt52_w9

TIP: Working on all Windows 10 versions.
Driver Version: 6.0.1.8035

Since a TV cannot provide a genuine surround sound experience, technologies like SRS TheaterSound, SRS TruSurround HD and SRS Wow HD are used to "trick" the mind into thinking that the sound is "bigger" than a 2.1 or stereo speaker system can produce.

First of all, thank you for the idea and work, however I get a weird error on any windows 10 computer I am trying to install your package. Right after unpacking, when it begins the instalation, I get a cabinet error or something, no matter what I do. My pc is bulletproof so it can't be from my side, also tried on several other windows 10 systems and happened same thing. Can you please look into it ?

Friend, to install this driver package in Windows 10, first uninstall the package you are currently using, go to Settings> Update and Security> Recovery and in ADVANCED INITIALIZATION click Restart Now.

From there you go to Advanced Options> Startup Settings and click Restart Now.

You will notice that before loading the system will appear boot options (Security Mode, etc.) press the number key 7 (DISABLE DRIVER SIGNATURE ENFORCEMENT) and wait for the system boot.

After that, just install the driver package. But ATTENTION: you will see a digital driver signature warning box; Click INSTALL THIS DRIVER SOFTWARE and continue the installation normally.

After the installation is complete, restart your computer again.

Then just enjoy the features of the SRS.

Does your version support DTS and Dolby Live 5.1 as well?
