Grey area question about Driver updates and Windows Audio Properties

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This could belong in two different areas but I feel like they each equally could answer my question. I use a Denon audio receiver for gaming and though many people probably don't notice or think to check, but Windows default settings for speaker locations is bad. My receiver sets up the distances itself with a mic but Windows itself has its own settings as well which need to be fixed from within the audio output sources properties. Problem is, every time Nvidia released a driver update, the settings are reset. And I don't want to calibrate room correction every single time. Sure, I could just not update the drivers or more specifically possibly the Nvidia HDMI audio driver, but there shouldn't be a reason to. Is there a way to keep the room correction settings saved and just replace a file to get them back? In Realtek audio manager, there is no room correction settings over HDMI out and in the Windows room correction, it doesn't give values or a way to edit values lol... Any help is appreciated. Using onboard sound too btw

have to ask why are you not using the optical audio plug? then your receiver is doing all the calibration needed.

Toslink is very limited. And that's not true, I first noticed it with NFS Rivals and then with Dying Light, something isn't right about the default windows audio settings when it comes to 5.1 ch +. My speakers are very heavy, they never move. However its very easy to notice when sounds don't align correctly (center channel is usually nearly non-existent with default Windows room settings)
