Hello.

could you guys help a fellow gamer?

I have onboard sound S1220A and Windows 10 x64 1703. Could some good mate point me to the correct driver and procedure to enable DDL ?


The OP is not updated since 2014 and 108 pages is a lot.

1.you can download sound blaster x720+modded realtek driver v.6.0.1.8366 (incl dolby HT4,DTS,DOLBY AUDIO ) by alanfox2000. go here
https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/...driver-mod-for-windows-10.232921/post-3802789
USE UNLOCKED rltkapo64.dll,rltkapo.dll (6.0.1.8004) or earlier to get dts ,ddl on realtek control panel .u can unlock by using the patch(run as admin) on page 37 or 47 which works upto realtek v 6.0.1.8059 or so ,not later ones.

instruc:
1.disable driver signature on win 10.
2.install dts studio sound before realtek.incl your hardware id in realtek hdxrt4.inf or hdxrt.inf & after putting patched rltkapo64.dll (replacing)in realtek installation folder,click install anyway when asked during install of realtek.
3.install sbx 720 and run kgn files to activate it.
4.install dht software.

Hi Pete12, does this Realtek WQHL + Dolby Drivers enables 5.1 surround sound? do i need to install them and what else? i need to modify Registry to DisableProtectedAudioDG=1 for it to enable 5.1 channels or no need?

I needed the unlocked rltkapo-files in sys32 and SYSWOW64 for having the dolby-tab displayed.
And , indeed , 5.1 and 7.1 working .............
I like this driver its pure latest and first one of the 84-serie. :roll:

Pete12, where can i get this unlocked files?, i mean the latest ones. I have tried some rltkapo and rltk64apo files and indeed they enable Dolby in sound properties therefore 5.1 surround, but the Dolby Home Theater tab won't work, sound stays the same with this enabled or disabled, also this files aren't official so i must disable driver signature force in windows 10, are there any official ones?

I thought this WHQL + Dolby drivers enables 5.1 surround by default, because there are WHQL and WHQL + Dolby (both enables surround with movies that support 5.1 channels but games with 5.1 wont work)

What's the difference betweeen Realtek WHQL drivers only and Realtek WHQL + Dolby drivers?

2 http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=75081949036771767035

Now you have two working files , replace the originals by these ones , safe these files , you may need them again by next updates !!! :toast:

Hi
I think ive read the whole thread the last few days now and tried a few things and got DDL working, - it was popping and clicking a lot so I thought i would try another driver which didnt work and ive now forgottown how i got the original to work.
So i have ALC 1220 Windows 10 as of Today (1709) 16299.15

I reinstalled windows just now and installed Realtek_HDA_6.0.1.8308_DTSi_DDL_WHQL (25/11/17) from http://dvojinov.simplesite.com/436463907
Driver signature disabled and Reg Key Protected audio done
Good things are Realtek Control panel is there
DTS can be enabled on Analog Jack/Headphones if i set speaker to 7.2 and Surround Mode

I use other 7.1 Headphones throgh SPDIF/Optical.
DTS\DDL is available, but when i select either of them I hear 2 different buzzing noises for DTS and DDL.

Any Solution here?

Also AlanFox post Mar 18, 2018
I cant select DDL\DTS in sound control panel, i click OK, close the panel and when i go back in its back to 2 channel.

So i need DDL for games to recognise this and apply the sound profiling (Lucid Sound LS40 Headset with optical bridge)
I've tried about 20 different mods and am exhausted with Realtek now, if i cant get it to work today, ill probably just by a Creative 7.1 or something and forego anymore hours wasted\ headache.
Or i might even just stick with stereo {haha)

any help appreciated i

@HiHawk @Alan Finote

i try to download the driver from #1,991 and #2,684 ,then overwrite the RltkAPO64.dll, DDL can be work on optical,
but when i restart the computer, the volume will auto increase to 100%,
although i change the volume already.
Normally, the setting can be save after restart,
Does anyone know what is the problem here?

Hi! I also have the Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 - I have 6.0.1.8295 installed (from Gigabyte) - I ran the patcher on the the drivers in the installation folder as outlined (here) . [I'm running Windows 10 Home with latest updates]

As far as I can tell DTS is working (my amp picks it up) over SPDIF - and the Soundblaster Connect 2 software is working correctly.

The one 'bug' is that I must select Dolby or DTS form the windows default format for "Realtek Digital Output Properties" - it doesn't show up in the RealTeak control panel.

Thank you to everyone who has made this possible, very easy to follow!
Hi! I have what I think might be a similar situation, I'm so happy I found this thread with all of this great info and fantastic contributors! I am not an expert AT_ALL with PC audio stuff. But I find myself hoping to get some help with a similar setup :

I have a Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 5, with what seems to be the same audio stuff as the Gaming 7, and I'm having trouble with Optical audio out to my receiver. HDMI isn't an option for me, and using Optical only seems to result in stereo (to an Onkyo TX-NR1008 surround receiver). I wanted to use HDMI, but the HDMI controller on this receiver is a bit flaky, so I don't always get audio from it.

What should I do to get this going?

FIXED!! the Headset comes with a Dongle. I installed the Realtek r.280 Driver ( x64 Only - https://www.techspot.com/drivers/driver/file/information/18007/ )
Patched with phyto patcher available on here, installed and restarted.
It was still buzzing. So i was about to rageQuit - but decided to un-plug the headset dongle and re=insert in same slot after 30 seconds. Now it works fine. Headset can pickup the dolby stuf as it says (gaming Surround when switching through the EQ mondes on it, LucisSound LS40 ) Hoooray

Now im a stop fucking around with drivers and thank my lucky stars i got it working again. Also no crackling or popping audio as yet. Fingers Crossed
Thanks to all in the thread for making this possible. :nutkick: <- Me vs Realtek.

pihto's patcher still work on 8432 generic HDA Driver under Win10 version 1803 build 17134.48
8432 generic HDA Driver

http://www.station-drivers.com/index.php?option=com_remository&Itemid=352&func=fileinfo&id=3438&lang=fr
Patched RltkAPO.dll/RltkAPO64.dll 11.0.6000.618 for 8432
http://www.mediafire.com/file/z7cxfprp1vdvx0d/Patched RltkAPO 11.0.6000.618 for 8432.rar

Copy and replace the C:\Windows\System32 after driver installed
[Rename original RltkAPO.dll/RltkAPO64.dll to RltkAPO.dll.bak and copy the patched file, reboot]

There are a tool which can edit RTKHDAUD.DAT (AudioDevice_sky.rar), which can edit driver policy (DTS, SRS, Dolby etc stuff)

ok..i try here..hope for a reply....so..hi to all, excuse for my bad english...I'm Italian...so...a few days ago I bought the turtle beach 800 7.1 headphones, which are also compatible with the PC. My specs are: win7 64, mobo asus p6t deluxe v2. I connected the headphones to the Pc via usb cable and optical cable for DTS audio. So...the problem is that I can not activate 7.1 surround and I can only use headphones in stereo mode. I have read some pages of your topic concerning the 5.1 and 7.1 surround and for what I know, my motherboard supports the soundmax drivers, not the realtek .... there is a solution? please help me ...

I had problems with the audio when I installed the update of April of Windows 10 (I did not have audio), I did everything, until I installed the latest audio drivers that are available for my ASUS motherboard (Version 6.01.7848 2016/08/04) and now without patching anything I have the DTS Interactive by spdif.

Motherboard m5a97 evo r2.0
Audio Realtek® ALC892

Excuse me if it is not well understood, I had to use Google translator
