Thanks! I'm able to confirm that I HAD to disable Secureboot in the BIOS in order for the bcdedit modified values to work. Now, I'm using M1 method successfully.

if u turn on secure boot u wouldn't be able to use bcdedit to modify values. likewise it would probably reset the values if u turned it back on

also bcdedit the disable integrity check entry

What exactly?
Thx
obviously you didn't read instructions closely and it is useless to write them all over again or COPY/PASTE for that matter of fact if you can ask question like this ?
choose your method ---> follow instructions step by step respective to the method you want and it will work , if not then you are awarded by an REALTEK chip not able to do DTS/DDL

Does it work on the new Windows 10 patch released today? I'm installing now and I'll give method A1 a try!

If you follow instructions properly (not hard to do...) and your card supports it, it works great.

Update failed during installation, I have no idea why. I did the audio unlock method A1, but no audio comes out of my speakers... . Windows Update does not show me the November Update anymore and it's not in the installation-history. Should I just wait a couple more days to get the November update to show up again?

After I Update to TH2 (Build 10586.3).
I can say it's working 100% using this method (I used A1)
IT ONLY WORKS WITH Windows 10 TH2 10565

I followed this steps exactly point to point :

Method A1: <--- use only files corresponding to A1 method

1. Download 2.79 drivers from Realtek website. <----- iv got it elsewhere (GURU3D)

2. Replace file in the official driver with the one here. ( http://rghost.net/6RfCvqBY9 )<----- replace both files 64 and 32 bit (A1 method files)

3. Disable driver signature enforcement from advanced startup when installing. To get into advanced startup for Win7/8/8.1/10, hold shift and press restart. For previous Windows versions, press F8 on startup. <-----!!!! VERY IMPORTANT TO DO or it wont work!!!!

2. After installation, open Run, type in "regedit" without quotes. Go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Audio". Add "DisableProtectedAudioDG" of DWORD (32bit value) type and set it to 1. <--- be sure the DWORD is where it has to be or it wont work

3. Restart normally.

Well by this rate of success I thought it would be good to try the trick with the latest Realtek drivers available ,so far it seems to be this one 6.0.1.7661 but as Realtek releases drivers updates very frequent this may not be the latest in a few days or week however ..good news IT WORKS :)

However there is something that you have to pay ATTENTION TO ! (DWORD)

Ill explain what I did and how A1 method ONLY:

1. I downloaded the latest drivers that I could find from here :

ftp://spcust:hwwk758z@ftp3.realtek.com.tw/Realtek/GeneralRelease/7661_PG436_Win10_Win8.1_Win8_Win7_WHQL.zip

2. I extracted the installer and replaced the respective dll's with the modified one 2.79 I did both of them just in case (I know its not necessary)

>>>2. Replace file in the official driver with the one here. ( http://rghost.net/6RfCvqBY9 )<----- replace both files 64 and 32 bit (A1 method files) <<<

3. now with the installation prepared I manually removed existing Realtek drives using Control Panel > Program & Features > selected \realtek > Uninstall

4. Reboot > I let the system reboot once as I have a scanner that scans for leftovers and If necessary additional removes leftover files and reg entries , with this done fun started.

5 Now I was ready to install the new prepared Realtek drivers but FIRST AND IMPORTANT one more REBOOT to desable DRIVER SIGN.

>>>3. Disable driver signature enforcement from advanced startup when installing. To get into advanced startup for Win7/8/8.1/10, hold shift and press restart. For previous Windows versions, press F8 on startup. <-----!!!! VERY IMPORTANT TO DO or it wont work!!!! <<<

6.Back again with driver signature disabled I installed the drivers once they finished BEFORE REBOOTING ,don't let AUTOMATICALLY REBOOT after installation and check your DWORD entry you have put before...in my case it was gone ! so if its not there follow this steps :

>>>2. After installation, open Run, type in "regedit" without quotes. Go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Audio". Add "DisableProtectedAudioDG" of DWORD (32bit value) type and set it to 1. <--- be sure the DWORD is where it has to be or it wont work

3. Restart normally. <<<

Once back in Windows :) it was there nice and shiny DTSI / DDL working as before only with the latest Realtek drivers :
I checked all formats available ..working as usual..when you TEST tone DTSI it will play only TWO ch but this behavior is well known and doesn't effect real reproduction of audio.

Hope it works for you too who ever wants to give it a try.

No need for so strict instruction for A1.

I've done it in other order (After updating to TH2 I've added DWORD, rebooted, replaced RltkAPO64.dll, rebooted), I was not disabling driver signature enforcement.
And all is working like a charm. :)

Good to know I might try this easy way next time I go for a new Realtek driver and report my findings .

How do you connecting your S730 with your audio output SPDIF using TOS ( OPTICAL) or COAXIAL cable ? and as I can see by the spec your speaker system is 2.1 and not 5.1 so Im not sure what do you gain using DTSI or DDL ???

Just to get you an Idea I use DIGITAL OUT using TOS Link form my laptop to my Logitec Z 906 and works perfectly fine .

I'm using TOS ( OPTICAL).

This is not going to work , as you need something to DECODE the compressed signal send over the TOS ..on Z 906 as soon as it received such a signal a notification light up saying DECODE , I believe your speaker system is not build in a way it can DECODE DTS/i or DDL .

I saw Logitech Z 906 for sale at the moment. And I thought to buy them or S730. But I did not like what they are made of plastic, while the S730 from MDF.

The world is free of choices buy whatever you like and find good enough for you just be sure it can decode DTS and DDL you are set to go ! I have to say I got really interested in this S760D maybe for my living room multimedia , would fit nicely . However I love my Z906 .

Ok, I got everything working, including the test tones. ALC888S connected via SPDIF coax out into Pioneer VSX-815 Coax in.
I set DTS as default in Realtek HD Audio Manager.
Now it gets weird: Any MP4 video with just Stereo audio I play and the Pioneer switches to DTS. I have DTS/mkv test files and no audio at all, only video.
I also have Dolby Digital 5.1/mkv file and it plays correctly as such on the Pioneer.

The Pioneer is a 7.1 capable receiver.

Why do the DTS files have no audio at all, but stereo files play DTS!

For starter try real DTS From BRay or some DTS DVD but real source and see if it works correctly . If it does it means everything is packed as it should be by standard your ALC is encoding and your Pionir is decoding DTS correctly . Maybe it is something just related to that specific DTS test file . If it decodes Stereo but fails to decode DTS on that file it could be that either ALC8888S is encoding in a way your Pionir is not compatible with , failed to encode in first place , that's a little bit of playing around and investigating

It also seems that Windows 10 isn't particularly keen about mkv files.
I also have some wav 6 channel DTS audio music I'm gonna have to try. I just don't remember if they had to be as wav extension or as dts extension for in order to play.

Can´t get Dolby Digital on my Sharkoon x-tatic headset using optical cable. Tried the A1 method, but still when installing, it asks about non signed drivers, even though I chose secure startup with permission for non signed drivers.
I am running W10 64-bit, Gigabyte z97x gaming 3, here is the realtek HD audio hardware ID.
