ok, here's a screenshot of my Asus Audio Manager, Default Format tab... with the DTS:Interactive option - I select this, then 5.1 works perfect through my speakers (I don't need to physically click the configure button and tell windows it's 5.1 tho, I have tested with games, and 5.1 demo files etc..)

When I install the driver you linked, I do not have this interface.
I have the Sonic interface, not this one. The Sonic interface only allows me to set the bitrate, not the channels and there's no option for Dolby.

You seem to have a magic driver package and I want it :)

Have you installed any other drivers/modified versions?

You may need to delete rtkhdaud.dat from Windows\System32\Drivers folder..

Uninstall old driver, delete rtkhdaud.dat, reboot, install new driver..... reboot, done :)

... I don't have Dolby tab with the Asus drivers I linked you, as I said already.... but it should have 5.1 :O

The Asus Audio Manager also doesn't show in start, it's in the tray (down near the clock, the little arrow)

You don't even have the DTS:NeoPC stuff installed that these drivers install... :O

Maybe your sub-version of hardware has been disallowed for digital.... :O

I nuked Windows and installed the Alan Finote driver.

It's cool, I needed to anyway. I think something was inherently broke with my audio stack in Windows. I've had issues with it for a while and it's time to rebuild this image anyway.

Yours is the same chip as mine....

try these drivers (from my board) - Should still work fine... (don't patch them)

https://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards/PRIME-Z270-A/HelpDesk_Download/

Once installed, open up the Asus Audio Manager, go to "Default Format" tab, and select the very bottom option from in there.... it should be Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS Interactive or something....

Also, Right click your windows speaker, go to "open sound settings" - and then "Sound Control panel" from the list on the right (2nd option down), from there double click your sound card, click "Enhancements" and scroll to the bottom, make sure the DTS or Dolby Digital option is ticked, click ok, and you should be good to go.... That is all I do with mine, with the same chip, and it works fine...


(Note: Mine works fine, except for the issue I posted above, however this could be something else on my system, hence me being here trying additional drivers, my 'popping' issue is still present with these latest drivers, so i'm continuing my search for a solution, getting 5.1 over Optical has never been an issue for me....)
Wow these drivers are utter crap! Some crap called Asus Radar and Asus Sound Studio 3. What crap that was. I had to uninstall it.

So can someone tell me what drivers I actually need to install for my Asus ROG Strix x470 Gaming-F mobo? I have Soundblaster Z and have given up on this piece of crap! It stops working within minutes in Windows 10 and Creative Labs won't fix the broken driver.
