I want to use dolby digital, whenever i can in as many games as i can, and i know my computer is capable, but its not active when i play dolby digital certified games, what should i do?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My receiver is made to work well with dolby digital, and when it receives it, it can give any headphones amazing surround sound. It uses a virtualization technique that i promise works really well. It has a little blue led that lights up when it's receiving dolby digital (through digital optical fiber). In my xbox this works fine, but on my pc when i plug it into my asus p8p67 deluxe's optical out, and play a supposedly dobly digital game it doesn't light up. At first i thought my pc might not be capable of it, until i get a sound card, however when i go into control panel, sound, Realtek Digital Output (Optical) properties, click the supported formats tab, and test the dolby digital encoded format it works, and the blue led lights up, and i hear the sound as I'm mean to. Is there a way i could use dolby digital in all my games, with my setup? (asus p8p67 deluxe -- (optical fiber cable) receiver)
Thank You in advance smile.gif

Also Note:
In the properties, under advanced the only formats i can choose from are 2 channel.
I am using the latest Realtek HD driver
There are no surround options in the driver when using the optical cable, only when using analog. (Im using optical)

did you tell the realtek suite it to use the dolby digital live setting or u just click on a test? I'd check in game options, you may needa tell the game to use dolby digital live 5.1
