Thread Starter 
I don't know if this is a wierd bug but right now I have my headphones connected out of the RCA ports using a female to female 3.5mm coupler and for some wierd reason, I can't enable DTS encoder or dolby? It tells me the service cannot start

***? anybody have this happened to them before?

I'm fairly certain that those two settings are for use with optical output. The onboard drivers and applications take care of the encoders when you're using a 3.5mm jacks.

O'rlly I thought it worked with analog output. I know Dobly only works for spdif and that DTS interactive works for spdif as well but i thought DTS Neo PC could work for analog

Not sure about that one. I don't think my card has it :x Did you check Creative's forums?

Dolby Digital and DTS work on analog RCA cables.

Well I'm talking about the encoder on the Titanium HD. I believe DTS and DD work on RCA cables but I am refering to the encoder on the TiHD

Dolby and DTS encoders do not work at all with the rear analog outputs. They take the audio signal and encode it to either Dolby or DTS digital and output it through your SPDIF out, which is your optical cable. If you look in the Dolby or DTS encoder applets, you will see they have "SPDIF OUT" chosen as their output.

How are those two encoders going to output digital data through the analog outputs? If I am understanding the question and answers that follow, it does not. They only output through the digital outs. If you turn those off and choose SPDIF as your primary output over speakers, you will only output stereo PCM audio.

From Creative's website: "Experience high-quality surround sound from your PC through your home theater with Dolby Digital Live and DTS Connect. It encodes your PC's multi-channel audio into a Dolby Digital or DTS bitstream and outputs it from your soundcard's digital out (S/PDIF), via a single digital cable into your home theater system.

Uses a single digital cable connection - This ensures the integrity of the audio signal and eliminates the confusion, hassle and clutter of multiple analog and digital connections.
Transforms all PC audio signals into a Dolby Digital or DTS signal - This enables playback of PC audio over millions of home theater systems equipped with Dolby Digital or DTS decoding.
Optimized for low-latency interactive applications - No perceptible delay between video and audio in game play.
Provide realistic 5.1-channel surround sound effects during interactive video gameplay - Immerses PC and game console players in a highly realistic game experience"
