Dolby Home Theater V4 changed to Dolby Digital Plus after Realtek Audio Driver update Windows 8.1

Q: Dolby Home Theater V4 changed to Dolby Digital Plus after Realtek Audio Driver update Windows 8.1

Hi,I'm now using Ideapad Z510. After upgraded to Windows 8.1. I'd went to the Lenovo website searching for new driver update.But, after i install the "Realtek Audio Driver 6.0.1.7023", the "Dolby Home Theater V4" is not running(audio sound not playing through).And, the "Dolby Digital Plus" is running instead of "Dolby Home Theater V4".Then, when I try to reinstall the older version "Realtek Audio Driver 6.0.1.6954" from Lenovo website, the "Dolby Home Theater V4" is running again.Truly, the "Dolby Digital Plus"'s sound is crisper and louder than "Dolby Home Theater V4". But the sound of "Dolby Home Theater V4" has more bass and more function (like Graphic Equalizer, more Intelligent Equalizer etc.).Is this an update or what?What should I choose?The newer driver (for Windows 8.1) or older driver (for Dolby Home Theater V4)? Thanks. (confused now) @@

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I only installed audio driver ver. 6.0.1.6798 which includes Dolby Home Theater V4. Since no issues are encountered I have not updated to the latest version for my unit (ver. 6.0.1.7027). Does this Dolby Digital Plus mentioned by you better than V4 in some aspect aside from the ones that you already stated?

G'day From Australia I'm basically trying to help people with Dolby Home Theater 4 if they have Realtek Audio Software installed.

Okay so if you're getting an error message saying the driver is wrong when you install Dolby - you'll have to go to Control Panel then Programs then uninstall programs and uninstall Dolby.

Once it's uninstalled use you're file browser (the yellow folder near the start Button) and click on C drive. Click on Programs and Find the "Realtek" folder. Click on "Realtek" then click on "Audio" click on the file "PCEE4" then click on "Dolby Home Theater" this will install the right version for Windows 7 - simply follow the promps, and you good to go - remembering you need to click on the short cut of Dolby on your desktop and click the on button to activate Dolby.

Hi Guys,
 
I recently upgraded a W520 to Windows 10 with the Dolby HT installed. Of course it no longer works and the audio is horrible again, especially from the internal microphones.
 
Has anyone come up with a way to install the Dolby Digital Plus on the Conexant based systems? I really need the improved audio for my softphone ASAP.
 
Thanks.

Hey guys! I'm new here as a user, but I've been here several times before.


Alright, I have some questions and maybe some (problems) if possible, would be very glad to solve.
So here goes...

Okay, so I purchased this Acer Aspire V3-571G Laptop not too long ago. The laptop works great.

But there are some things. First of, the laptop came with Dolby Home Theater V4, it's great, I like it. But I
also noticed that there is the Realtek HD Audio Manager. But when I open it up, the tabs like Sound
Effect, Room Correction are missing. And in the Speaker tab the stereo option is greyed out. I know this is because that I'm using the original drivers from Acer and (maybe) the options are used by Dolby Home Theater, right? But the thing is, that I'd like to have the tabs in Realtek HD Audio Manager.
Another thing is, beside the laptop's speakers, it's written ''Dolby Home Theater V4'', and far to the right, it's written Professionally Tuned. This is normal, they put in Dolby Home Theater inside the hardware, right? But do I also have Realtek inside it?
But anyways the drivers im using are the original ones. And btw, if I use older drivers like R2.41, they install succesfully and all, and I have the Sound Effect Tab, though not Room Correction. I also have a another option in the Speakers Tab called Headphone Virtualization or something like that. But the weird problem is that with the older drivers, in Realtek HD Manager it says, Analog and beneath that, it says ''Mic in''. And ... Read more

A:Realtek HD Audio Manager and Dolby Home Theater V4

The Dolby home theatre is a software enhancement to the RealTek. Many times in systems with software enhancements (there are several such as SoundBlaster MB, Beats Audio, etc) those programs provide any audio "enhancements".

RealTek drivers are customised by the PC vendor for their application. Generic sound chip drivers (e.g. RealTek) or RealTek drivers from another vendor may or may not work (install) and may or may not work properly after installation.

This is the notice that is posted on the RealTek site about their drivers:






Quote:
Audio drivers available for download from the Realtek website are general drivers for our audio ICs, and may not offer the customizations made by your system/motherboard manufacturer. To be sure you obtain the full features/customizations provided in your original audio product, please download the latest drivers from your system/motherboard manufacturer's website


If you want a PC with all the RealTek bells and whistles I suggest you return this PC and buy one that has what you want.

I had upgraded my Y500 from Windows 8.1 to 10. Before, I had One Key Theater installed and it worked perfectly fine. I didn't have the Dobly Home Theater app. The Windows 10 Creator's Update came to my laptop and I upgraded last week Wednesday. On Friday, my laptop wouldn't boot up, not sure if this is related to the Creators update. I couldn't perform Start-up Repair, System Recovery nor a PC Refresh. I ended up having to reinstall Windows 10 from a recovery drive I created a while back. My laptop is now recovered except for the tedious part of reinstalling all my apps. I've been trying to reinstall One Key Theater and I keep getting an error message saying that this application does not work for this version of Windows. Furthermore, I noticed the Dolby Home Theater application but it does not work. The icon appears in the notification area of the task bar but whenever I try to open the application fully, it crashes.I've seen posts about these very same problem for Dolby Home Theater and they all recommend uninstalling and reinstalling the audio driver and also reinstalling Dolby Home Theater which I've done a couple times now but this still does not work.Will Lenovo be releasing a version of One Key Theater that works for Windows 10 Creators Update?Will a fix come out for this problem with Dolby Home Theater?Has anyone found a solution?

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers and software and still cannot get the program to work. The program will open and shows the different options available, but the equalizer does not move (like it used to on Windows 8.1) and it does not make a difference in the audio output.  This all worked before my Windows 10 transition.

Hi there,
 
I just upgraded to Wndows 10 Home from Windows 8.1; everything went smoothly except for the fact that Dolby Home Theater v4 does not work. I had to reinstall it using the .msi file found in the Realtek Audi folders. I chose v4 over any of the other versions because I like how I can tune the equalizer to my liking and different uses. Anyways, the regular audio works and Dolby is turned on but there is no activity appearing on the equalizer and my music does not change once adjusted. Had this problem when doing an optional audio driver update in the past when I was running 8.1. I do not have the option to rollback the driver after upgrading to Windows 10. Does anyone have a solution to this issue or know what the correct Realtek driver is to make Dolby work? This is one of my favorite features of my laptop and I really want it up and running again!
 
Thank you in advance!

A:Z580 - Dolby Home Theater v4 not working after upgrading to Windows 10

For those of you still struggling to find the solution to get your Dolby Home Theater v4 equalizer back on Windows 10, you are in luck. Warning: I highly reccomend cresting a backup before starting this process in case anything goes wrong. There are multiple ways to do that and I usually create a restore point and a system image.Step 1: Install Dolby Home TheaterIf you know that it is installed already skip to Step 2. Look under the control panel to see if it is listed there, if it is go to Step 2, if not go to C>Drivers>Realtek Audio Driver>PCEE4>DolbyHomeTheater.msi and double click and install the software. Restart your computer!Step 2: Uninstall Realtek High Definition Audio speaker driverGo to the device manager and expand Audio inputs and outputs. Right click and hit uninstall where it says: Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio). Hit scan for hardware changes. If it still shows the speakers listed, right click and uninstall again. Hit scan for hardware changes and it should be gone. Do not restart your computer!Step 3: Install the Realtek High Definition Audio Driver that is compatible with Dolby Home Theater v4Go to D>Drivers>Audio>Setup.exe and double click and follow the process. If it asks for a restart after uninstalling the driver go ahead and do so. Then it will install the compatible driver and ask for a restart again to finish, do it.Step 4: Install DolbyGo to this website:http://www.thewindowsplanet.com/3765/dolby-home-theater-missing-a...

I recently received the new Alienware 18 with Windows 8.1. Not liking that OS I installed Windows 7 Professional. I downloaded all the appropriate drivers from Dell's website for my specific computer. For sound I was given Realtek HD audio with Dolby Home Theater v4. I like the program well enough, but I'm having some issues. As the title says, Dolby only works for 1 program at a time. Say I'm listening to iTunes, Dolby will work with it, but if I open up Teamspeak, it continues to work for iTunes but not Teamspeak. If I was to pause iTunes and my friend started talking in Teamspeak, Dolby will switch to Teamspeak and everything else (iTunes, games, YouTube) will go on using default audio. With my Alienware m18x I had previous to this, I had IDT Audio. I miss that software, it would work with everything at the same time.

Things I've tried:
1. Going into sound options/speaker properties/advanced/ and disabling "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device."
2. Updated LAN driver (someone in another forum said it fixed it for them)
3. I have a Realtek driver downloaded from their website, I haven't installed it yet because after reading their disclaimer, I am under the impression that Dolby is not included.

So if y'all have any ideas, please let me know. Thank you.

Hi, so today i opened my laptop and it did a disk check after it was done i noticed that my Dolby home theater was uninstalled, so I went and downloaded it but whenever it tries to install it gives me a message saying that I need to install PCEE, I have no idea where I can install it from.

A:Dolby home theater uninstalled after disk check

According to what I see on another post about the PCEE, you must first reinstall your sound drivers.

Dolby Home Theater and Windows 10 Hi other Acer PC users, like others, I upgraded to Windows 10 from 7 and found that Dolby Home Theater wasn't working.I found the answer to the problem was simple but not advised anwhere.I simply brought up the install/uninstall programs, then right-clicked on Dolby Home Theatre and then clicked on the 'Repair' option. Windows just updated Windows 10 again today and notified me that Dolby HT not recognised, so I did the same again and Dolby HT is now working once more. Hope this is of help.I would think that this repair should work on all PCs.     Thomas.

A couple of days ago I decided to factory reset my Acer Aspire v3-772g laptop by using windows built in function in windows 10. The only problem i got after the reinstallation of windows 10, was that Dolby home theater hadn't been installed, and that the files for the installation of the program was in a new folder (Location for the folder: C:\DRIVERS\WIN\Dolby). When i tried to install them manually I got an error message called "DHT cannot be installed" after I closed that one i got another error from the setup wizard "Dolby Home Theater v4 setup wizard ended prematurely". In the description of the error it says something about my system hasn't been modified. I don't know how I can get Dolby to work again, or where I can download it from, I have tried installing the Realtek cardreader pack under the drivers section for my laptop, but nothing happened. Kind Regards Malte

After updating system to Fall Creators Update of W10 (1709) Dolby Digital Plus App  is reported to be deactivated /deinstalled due to driver incompatibility.
(It appears that driver/ app came with PowerDVD 12 preinstalled.)
 
Manual start of Dolby App shows that driver version installed is higher than expected by app (see screenshot).
Can some resolve driver/app problem, so I can use app again.

I updated to 8.1 because supposedly, it was to offer features similar to win 7. Instead, it's even worse than win 8. Now, the sound quality on my laptop is lousy because the Dolby Audio driver receives an error message and isn't working. I went to Lenovo (I have a Ideapad N Series 580) and followed these instructions from Lenovo and microsoft, which unfortunately didn't help. I'm still getting the same error message. I wish I had never heard of windows 8.1! Many have had this same problem after installing 8.1. HELP!

This instructions are from Answers.Microsoft, but didn't work.

Open Device Manager. (Right-click on the Start button and choose Device Manager).
Expand the Sound, Video and Games Controllers section.
Right Click on the Conexant Smart Audio HD item and choose Uninstall.
Still in Device Manager, click on Action>Scan for new Hardware.
The Conexant Smart Audio item will re-appear.
Right-Click on it and choose update driver.
Navigate to d:\drivers\audio.
When that's done, close Device Manager.
Open File Manager and navigate to D:\drivers\Audio\DolbyGUI and install Dolby Home Theater.

A:help! Dolby Audio Driver not working after 8.1 update

I would try installing it in a compatibility mode and see if that helps.

I have a recording studio, and I'm seeing reports that many audio devices will not work with 8.1. I have a Roland Octa-Capture which is a USB connected recording interface unit and fortunately Roland had an 8.1 driver update. I've also seen some registry tweaks to make devices work in 8.1.

You may have to wait for Lenovo to issue an new 8.1 version.
