Getting 7.1 Surround Sound for PC With Turtle Beach Dx11s

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I have a pair of Turtle Beach Dx11's that I purchase a while back for Xbox 360 so I could have the 7.1 Surround sound while playing Battlefield 3. That being cool and all, once I had my new PC set up and I had the Limited Edition BF3 for PC installed. I thought back to reading the box before opening my new headset and it said that the Dx11s would also work for PC! So I hooked all the right cords to the right places and gave it a try. I'm not getting the same 7.1 surround sound of Dolby Digital. I'm only getting Play Logic II (or PLIIX), and my DSS for the headset isn't enabling DD even when I have the optical cord plugged in which should automatically make it 7.1 I thought. So I need some help. am I missing some drivers? do I need to get something to make the DD 7.1 SS work or do I just need a 7.1 DDSS PC gaming headset?

You need a sound card that supports Dolby Digital Live!, which converts your Windows sound channels (in your case, 8 channels) to the Dolby Digital format.

I bought my Xonar D2X specifically for this purpose.
