This is a basic guide and it will only serve to unlock the Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive nothing else using their own official drivers Realtek Audio

Guide to enable Dolby Digital Live and/or DTS Interactive:

1. Uninstall your existing Realtek drivers with Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) and reboot. You will have to disable the use of signed drivers (How To Disable Driver Signature Enforcement, How to disable mandatory use of signed drivers)
2. Download and extract zip file containing original Realtek HD audio drivers R2.80 (In my case I use the version R2.80).
3. Use Pihto's patch to patch the DLL files (the password is ''realtek''). The target filenames are listed on the patcher window. They begin with "rltkAPO64.dll, rltkAPO.dll" and may be in "win32" and "win64" subfolders of the Realtek package. You will have to manually select each file to patch and run the patcher multiple times to patch all matching files.
4. Now run the Realtek setup program. You may be asked to install unsigned drivers. Choose yes.
5. Do not immediately reboot. Instead, open regedit and ensure the "DisableProtectedAudioDG" registry fix is still present. If not, add it again. You need to create it for that, select right click on the blank => New => DWORD (32 bit) value and then name it ''DisableProtectedAudioDG'' with hex value ''1''
REGEDIT4
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Audio]
"DisableProtectedAudioDG"=dword:00000001
6. Reboot, and Dolby Digital Live/DTS Interactive should be available.
7. Working properly on Windows 11 with Realtek version R2.80

This guide only works for the S/PDIF interface and will unlock Dolby Digital Live and DTS Connect

Out of curiosity, why don't you just compile the driver with all the changes and patched files? I can show you at some time if you like, and how to sign files and the driver.
You should also be able to use the current driver set (DCH), rather than the HDA legacy ones, however that's really down to you.

This is interesting because the truth is that I don't know anything about compilation, I don't know how to sign and I always had problems with the DCH, currently I use my Sony BDV-N9200W/N9200WL Home Theatre System AV Receiver since it is compatible with DTS and Dolby Digital in the interface SPDIF, instead my 4K Q7FN 55'' TV only supports Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital+ (ARC) it does not support DTS, DTS HD or DTS X and the HDMI input only supports 2 PCM channels so I connect directly from my PC to the Receiver AV BDV-N9200W / N9200WL via SPDIF interface

Indeed ARC is just the older SPDIF standard, eARC is still behind current SPDIF, in terms of the driver don't worry, I was just curious.

I don't think there is a connector or device with such availability because it's a very extensive modding process that bypasses the manufacturer's device allocation for audio formats
I'm working on a method to unlock the following spatial sound formats for everyone, regardless of device and licenses.
"Dolby Atmos for built-in speakers"
"Dolby Atmos for Home Theater"
& "DTS:X for Home Theater"

but first i will finish a browser extension and merge my project with @emanresu 's and release it here in this forum.
other formats can already be unlocked with the help of modding knowledge and appropriate driver modifications, which can be downloaded here in the forum
for example, of course, your featured mod! and the mods by Ferather Alan Fox and Alan Finotty!

Very nice to know, looks like Win11 has better sample detection on SPDIF, I wonder if they bugged the test files like in Win10, 192k never plays a tone, but I can set the device to 192k and get audio.

is it possible to play 96khz and 192khz?

Set the device on output, that's PCM, so if you are bitstreaming Interactive, it does not apply. First disable bistreaming, and set the device to 96k and play audio.

Im impressed to see how quickly Microsoft are reacting to TOSLink 2.0, even though its over a decade in age, rofl.

according to the specifications of my receiver it only supports 96khz at 2 stereo channels in PCM

That's why then :)
my other question is are these audio formats: DTS HD Master, Dolby True HD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTSX E1 and E2, Dolby Digital Plus(Dolby Atmos) real formats? because I find it very strange that my home theater can play them through SPDIF knowing that in its manual specifications it says very clearly that it only supports 2-channel PCM at 48khz, Dolby Digital (Core) and DTS (Core) via SPDIF Digital Audio TV

Windows does not have play samples for anything other than AC3 and DTS Surround, even if it did, it will still use DirectSound, and play-do the same.

To elaborate, DirectSound will only ever send AC3 (Dolby Digital Live!), and DTS Surround (aka DTS Core).
So, EAC3 (DD+) becomes AC3, DTS-HD MA, DTS-HD HRA, core only, no TrueHD.

But I mean, these formats are false, so they are only DTS and Dolby digital, only with other names?

They are true formats (by ID), else you would not get Atmos and DTS:X HT as formats, Windows simply has no test samples.
When I wrote the files, the test sample was required to show the format in the box, that may have changed.

Note: There are no encoded test samples on HDMI either, only SPDIF works this way on Windows.

I tried to do what you told me but nothing just 88.2khz, 96.0khz and 192.0khz can not be played and nothing is heard by spdif

That's because of the unit, but that's how you test, by setting the device to said sample rate, and playing audio.
You unit will not go further than 48k on SPDIF, as it states in the screenshots you posted.

On HDMI you can go up to 96k 2 channels, slightly odd setup to be honest.

I gave up, I see a lot of programming in each post and I don't fully understand, I just wanted to have DDL and DTSi unlocked along with DPLII and DTS Neo in the latest version DCH Realtek console. I think i will stick with my old patched realtek drivers R2.80 Legacy

And you will have it :p People just need to clarify their English sometimes, so there are no confusions.

plugging my headphones into the speaker plug interface brought up other options that I didn't realize


If I set my speakers to 7.1 channel i get these effects

Dolby Pro Logic IIx converts any audio signal to 6.1 or 7.1 channels

DTS Neo PC for 7.1 speakers

If I set my speakers to 2.1 channel i get these effects

Dolby Virtual Speaker get 5.1 channel sound effect with just two speakers
