Ok now Right-click on Sony AVAMP and Configure Speakers. Then test your Dolby/DTS source program/file or surround sound media / game. (The playback program / media / game may need to be configured properly.)

If it works you can then try increasing Advanced and see if it still works.

But really, if your sound system is HDMI, you shouldn't need Dolby/DTS to actually get surround. Just Configure Speakers to the correct number of speakers/setup. It'll be PCM surround - if the source is surround.

I understand you, this time I took a screenshot using the receiver.

So, what Im trying to explain is that my receiver just accept in HDMI this formats below:

PCM 2.0 or Dolby/DTS, like this images below.

So, Im trying to use DTS Interactive or Dolby Digital Live over HDMI

You think its possible?

Lets see this connection:
(Nvidia GPU > Hdmi > Sony receiver > Hdmi out form receiver to my TV.

(could be any monitor, whatever, the PC is sending the sound and image over HDMI, direct to Sony Receiver over HDMI).

View attachment 243541
Either that amp, or your GPU (it'd have to be really really old) is not supporting PCM audio.


You're stuck with stereo, without changing hardware

Oh woops, so his Sound System isn't even surround?

Then just stick with Stereo. If you want Dolby or DTS the source program and/or file has to be in Dolby or DTS. At least over HDMI.

It's 5.1, but not PCM surround by the looks of things. One of the early models, with limited support.

no. IDT is a different chip than Realtek (different animal altogether) and IDT never gives out driver downloads to pc users and only to pc manufacturers & motherboard makers (aka. more restrictive than realtek). IDT only make chipset specific drivers based on what manufacturers tell them - much harder to "mod" or "unlock" than realtek

no
because that is NOT the point!
IDT audio drivers work differently than Realtek's and IDT's are not necessarily better nor worse (structure is different)

and you did not specify what kind or model of HP laptop you are using. ask HP for any IDT audio drivers for your specific HP notebook pc or check the HP support site

plus, there is really NO BENEFIT whatsoever in using "unlocked" drivers (if there were such things for IDT) on an HP laptop since laptops only have 2-channel or stereo audio and such drivers would be worthless or useless. if you had an HP desktop computer with at least 5.1 sound or 6-channel audio, on the other hand like with this guy several years ago [who also asked if there were any unlocked IDT drivers for his hp desktop pc but there weren't any], then that would be a different story.

disclaimer from Tempo Semiconductor Inc (who acquired Sigmatel/IDT HD audio products in late 2013):



Where can I get an audio driver?
Our OEM partners provides us with detailed feature-sets and behavioral specifications for every model. If a feature is not available, this is likely because they chose not to enable it in either software or hardware. TEMPO SEMI must comply with our customer’s specifications for their systems.
We are not allowed to distribute OEM drivers to end-users, nor can we make modifications to the drivers outside of these manufacturer’s specifications.


TEMPO SEMI continually updates our OEM customers with new drivers that include bug fixes and new feature requests.
We recommend that you:
Use the driver supplied with your computer or obtain a driver update from the OEM manufacturer .


End-User Technical Support/Questions/Feature Requests


Currently Integrated Device Technology does not provide any end-user support or drivers for PC Audio products. This includes the PC and Notebook audio product lines acquired from Sigmatel.

TEMPO SEMI’s Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) partners have requested that all technical support for their models be handled by the OEM directly. OEM refers to the Brand Name of the Personal Computer or Notebook that uses a TEMPO SEMI PC Audio product or solution. Please contact the manufacturer of your computer (OEM) with your question.

IDT HD audio hardware is good but IDT audio driver support is bad; can only obtain IDT drivers from the PC manufacturer or motherboard maker. Realtek, on the other hand, not only makes manufacturer specific audio drivers but also general purpose or "generic" audio drivers for many Realtek ALCxxx audio chipsets and the generic drivers are available on the Realtek web site but are for Realtek HD audio hardware only
