Yoga 900 - Dolby Audio X2 - Uninstall it?

Q: Yoga 900 - Dolby Audio X2 - Uninstall it?

Hi, I was troubleshooting an issue with my laptop and Microsoft suggested turning off unnecessary startup items. So I turned off the bundled Dolby X2 stuff. It doesn't appear to be vital to the system, but it does use system resources. Is this bloatware? Does it do anything useful? Is it a candidate for removal? Thanks. Edit: It also appears to be a security issue. https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/product_security/len_4884 Heh.

Hey guys, So I recently bought a Y710 IdeaCube and it came with Dolby Audio pre-installed. I thought it to be pretty lackluster so I decided to uninstall it and go for Realtek Audio instead. Turns out, the Dolby Audio tab is still showing in Speaker Properties, stopping Realtek HD Audio from showing a lot of its features (I believe. This may not be the issue but some people have suggested it). How on earth do I go about removing Dolby?

Hello, recently, I have installed a clean Windows 10 installation (I formatted the entire drive) and I ran into a problem: I can not find the Dolby driver anywhere on the internet, Lenovo support included.Dolby did miracles on Windows 8.1, so I find this as an important issue, because it improved my audio in different positions of the Yoga. Without it, it just simply sounds crap. So, where can I download it?

Microsoft store only show some trial version of Dolby Atom for headphone and another app for Dolby Access, i assume neither are what the usually Dolby profile/EQ app is any suggestion, am i missing something?

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) @@

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

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?

So the Yoga 920 has Dolby Atmos integrated, but I've read everywhere that is meant to be used with headphones and my laptop uses the Dolby Atmos with its own JBL speakers, it makes a big difference but I don't know if this is normal and I've noticed a tiny clicking noise when adjusting the volume on youtube and also in some other videos when a certain frequency is reproduced.I don't know if its normal for the Yoga 920 to use Dolby Atmos for the speakers or something went wrong and it damaged the computer, the clicking noise comes from the earphones too so the JBL speakers can't be the problem. In fact, I just noticed that there no difference in sound when Dolby Atmos is activated or deactivated when using the headphones, maybe the software got "confused" and think the speakers use Dolby and not the headphones. I need a Yoga 920 owner to please listen to the intro of this youtube video and tell me if there's a clicking noise in those first 3 seconds to see if its normal or my audio is distorted.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVbH8tsxxyM&t=54s Thanks.

Good day my fellow Yoga 720 buddies.... I just bought a Dolby Atmos speaker (was like $1,000!) for my house. I love it BUT I can only use it with XBOX One, which kinda sucks. I wish I had more content to use with it. Playing games and hearing that Atmos sound is incredible though!! Recently Netflix just updated the app for XBOX One and now has 2 or 3 shows (Okja!) that use the Dolby Atmos sound so that was my first experience using it for video entertainment. How do you use the Dolby Atmos with the Yoga 720? I would assume that the default speakers in the laptop does not work with Dolby Atmos.... So it comes down to this, how would I play the audio on my speaker? I am guessing I would have to do it via HDMI. The only way to do it via HDMI is via an USB C adapter. Does that work? What about the Dolby Atmos headphones? Can I use with existing headphones or do I need special ones? I saw a Dolby Access app that was trying to sell me Dolby Atmos for headphones for like $15. Furthermore, what content is available for Dolby Atmos besides games on a PC? Give me all the details you can please!Thanks,David

The Dolby atmos Headphone is listed as a feature for Yoga 920 and should be useable with the Fall Creator's update. I updated Fall's Creator Update recently and now has the proper tabs for virtual surround sound with headphones. However, dolby atmos headphone can only be accessable through the Dolby Atmos app which requires payment after 30 days. Should I download it from somewhere else or is any other driver from Lenovo to enable it? Thx!

I have the new DolbyVision screen on my X1 Yoga (3rd gen), and I'm noticing some strange behavior.   Specifically, when I pull up a window that is bright (ie mostly white) it looks dim at first, but then slowly brightens up.  If I then switch to a window that is mostly black, if I pay close attention to the parts that are not black, they slowly dim down in brightness.   I have all of the adaptive brightness features turned off (as far as I can find - maybe there are more?).  It seems to be more about what is on the screen, and have nothing to do with ambient light conditions.   Is this normal?  I'm guessing it's some kind of power-saving "feature" that dims the backlight when less overall brightness is needed, but I can't find any setting that makes any difference to it.  It's a bit annoying.

Hello guys, I have been searching around about this but they always end up with a headphones that has built-in Dolby Audio. I just bought a USB Headphones and when I use it, the Dolby software always disabled. If I plug in a headset/earphone base on 3.5mm jack the software work again. Does Dolby Audio software only run on a specific hardware? anyway my laptop has built-in Dolby Advanced Audio v2 and the sound card was Conexant SmartAudio.

Along with this, there is a little more question. The headphones I bought (Dragon War Beast) is a 5.1 channel sound (said on the box & the website). But I honestly confused if it was real or not cuz in Windows Audio it only show stereo channel on Speaker Setup as well as the manual said USB 2.1 Stereo Vibrating Headset (different from the box). Is there a way I can test if its a stereo or 5.1 sound?
Thanks in advance. Any help is always apreciated, and of course sorry for my bad english

A:How can I use Dolby Audio with USB Headphones

When you use USB headsets, you bypass the PC's sound card (and add on's such as the Dolby). The USB headset has the "sound card" (conversion from digital to analog) built in.

The 5.1 is a function of the USB headset and again does use the PC sound. If the source, such as a game, is 5.1 then you will get the 5.1 (simulated) sound. Unless there are multiple speakers in the headset I don't see how it can get "real" 5.1 sound. Its like my LCD HD TV, it has two stereo speakers but simulates surround sound.

 UPDATE: SOLUTION::   I determined that the DOLBY modules never got installed. They are sitting in C:\DRIVERS\WIN\Audio\DAX2\x64. Running the installer using the REPAIR option restored the DOLBY support. I don't know why the installation was faulty from the preload.
