connecting a DVD Rom digital signal to a Dolby Digital Amplifier

Q: connecting a DVD Rom digital signal to a Dolby Digital Amplifier

I have a Pioneer 106s DVD ROM which has a digital 2 pin output.

I just bought a Sony STRDE 675 dolby digital amplifier which has a coaxial digital in input.

My sound card, a soundblaster Live CT 4830 does have a digital out connector on the external part (next to the line in input), but does not have a 2 pin connector on the card itself where the DVD could be connected (there is the place with SPDIF marked but for some reason there is no 2 pins connector)

I do not want to buy a 5.1 soundcard if I can connect my DVD ROM to the amplifier without using the soundcard, Is this possible! Is the DVD rom digital out SPDIF recognised by the amplifier?

Should I create on the soundcard (which does have the digital output on the ecternal panel) an internal connection for the 2 pins? will this work?

Does anyone have a clue? HELP!!
many thanks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: connecting a DVD Rom digital signal to a Dolby Digital Amplifier

Modifying it isn't going to work in my mind.
Just adding pin connections don't mean the hardware and software is included with the card.

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?

Hello guys
I did a clean install to Windows 10, because upgrading it break the WiFi connectivity.
Now I got another issue, I noticed that the Audio Driver downloaded from Windows Update is somehow didn't sound good, if I enabled Dolby the bass is drastically reduced like no bass at all. I tried with headset and a small sound system, they both sound like a laptop speaker. The old driver couldn't be installed, the installer always failed.
I tried to use the same driver for windows 10 from another lenovo product with no different. Do you guys have any idea about this? It is not a big deal because I'm using a USB Headset. What matter is when I use a sound system to play music/movie the sound really bad. The solution for now is to disable Dolby but the sound is really low. I would like to know is there is a way to install the old driver to Windows 10 at least?
My sound card is Conexant SmartAudio other spec can be found in Sytem Spec and the installed driver version is 8.66.4.0.
Thanks in advance. I'm looking forward for your respond and sorry for my bad English.

A:No bass with Dolby Digital Plus

I had the same problem, I also have Lenovo, my model is G505.

What solved the problem for me was, I opened this

then I changed from ''CLASSIC'' to ''MULTI-STREAM''

and then your sound should be ok,

and then you can adjust your bass in DDP and be happy again!

Please respond if this helps.

Hello people, I have this problem since I bought my VN7-791G, and I am asking now. When I stop a music and play it after a while, Dolby Digital equalizer bar seems freezing. I am not talking about the application. When I open the Home Theater from task bar it opens correctly and that circle Dolby button is enabled too, so Dolby is active. But equalizer bar doesn't move, beacuse of that music sounds like Dolby is disabled. Few seconds after the music is played, eq bar starts moving and Dolby works properly. I am using Windows 10 but it was same with 8, 8.1. I tried using Advanced Audio but it was same. Driver's are up to date. There is no virus. PC works correctly.

I have setup my computer so that it can play DVD's and I started considering Dolby Digital 5.1 (DD 5.1) sound systems that have the DD 5.1 decoders in them but I'm not sure if my sound card supports the capability to send a DD 5.1 signial to the sound system. Now I don't know if a sound card needs anything special or if a coax S/PDIF or optical S/PDIF output jack is all that's necessary to send the DD 5.1 signal. The sound card I have is (I believe) manufactured by A-Trend
and it is a Harmony 3DS724A High Quality Yamaha PCI 3D Sound SONDIUS-XG Wavetable Synthesis with;

Speaker Out/Line Out
Line In
Mic In
MIDI/Joystick
S/PDIF

jacks. And so my question is if I were to get a DD 5.1 sound system which had its own DD 5.1 decoder inside could my sound card send the DD 5.1 signal or would I have to purchase a special sound card for this and why?

If I understand right you have to have a nVidia chipset mobo that supports digital encodiing. Is this right? If so, and as I don't have this type of mobo, is there any other solution.

It is probably easier if you just buy an XBOX. XBOX is the forerunner of on-the-fly Dolby Digital Encoding for the NFORCE series from nVIDIA by leveraging HyperTransport AKA - LDT (Lightning Data Transport) from AMD.

Or simply waiting long enough for perfecting of Intel's PCI-e (simultaneous multiple data streams from multiple data sources to multiple destinations) and Intel would be putting out latest souped-up immitation versions of XBOX/NFORCE series.

It is unfortunate that Intel just had to re-invent PCI-Express instead of using HyperTransport from way back in early 2000.

Hello,

I have a DVD-ROM on my computer, as well as a brand new Sound Blaster Audigy 2 NX which is connectd to a 5.1 dolby digital surround sound creative system.

My problem is that when I play DVD's on the system, they don't play in Dolby Digital Surround. They either only play in Stereo on the front two speakers, or they are replicated over all 5 speakers through the use of the Creative CMSS function.

I have tried playing the DVD in two separate DVD programs (NVDVD and PowerDVD), and I have also checked the settings in both to ensure that they are showing Dolby 5.1 (Power DVD has it in 5.1, the other program does not list 5.1 as an option).

Could anybody give me a lead as to why this is happening? I have all drivers and software installed, up to date, and seem to be correct.

Thanks,

Hey guys,I've had a Lenovo Y50 for a while, now I noticed  it only used 50% of my sound, so i put on Dolby, however, the sound sounds worse than with the 50%, like it added more noise/sounds than I originally heard in songs.

(I do play my music at 100% sometimes, it used to sound fine since the output was always 50% max...) I am quite sure my boxes sound fine, but it does sound like there is a disbalance when listening to music I always listen to, even when i plug in external boxes to improve sound/volume.is there a driver for dolby somewhere or another way to adjust this?Thanks in advance!

A:Dolby Digital in games

There is no Dolby Digital in *any* games. It's only available if you're using the nForce 1/2 motherboards that support Dolby Digital Encoding. It's some odd misleading marketing thing that Dolby have going on.

As from the America's Army FAQ;

Q: What are the system requirements for Dolby Digital audio?
A: NVIDIA nForce or other motherboards/soundcards containing the Dolby Digital Interactive Content Encoder required for Dolby Digital audio.

I have a Winfast XP TV tuner card and I'm using the onboard nVidia sound. I just purchased some 5.1 speakers.

I am currently running Vista, SP1. Sound chip is a RealTek HD output through SPDIF (coax), run to my AV receiver.

How do I get windows to output all audio (including windowd default sounds) to Dolby Digital? Right now it outputs everything to 2.0 PCM. I have enabled digital output (spdif), and DD and DTS in the control panel. I have done the test, and heard the tone on all channels (and when it does the tones, Dolby Digital kicks in of course, but then goes back to PCM after the test).

I know digital out is working because like I said, it does the test in DD, and also, I have installed AC3 Filter, and when I play movies, the audio switches to Dolby.

Any ideas?

Hello,

I am coming here for help as I have tried everything possible to get Dolby Digital sound to play my games in.

My setup:

Custom built desktop with AMD 965 BE Quad Core, Asus M4N98TD EVO motherboard, eVGA GeForce 470 Superclocked graphics card.

The motherboard supports native 7.1 and has it's own Digital Coaxial & Optical outputs.

The graphics card carries up to 7.1 via HDMI. I am running my graphics card HDMI output to my Samsung 40 1080P LCD.

I have tried just running HDMI to my TV, then using the Optical output from the TV to my receive, as well as running the optical output from the motherboard directly to my receiver, to no avail.

In the Windows sound option, I have enabled Digital Audiot S/PDIF. When I click Supported format, I see Dolby Digital and can hit test, at which point I see my receiver switch from ProLogic / Stereo to Digital, however sound only comes out of my front speakers as if it were in Stereo.

Under Advanced Tab, it only shows 2 channel options. If I right click on Digital Audio (S/PDIF) there is no 'configure' option, where I could select the speakers.

This really bothers me, since when trying to play all my games, i.e. Battlefield 2 Bad Company I can only get Pro-Logic.

This should be much more straight-forward, but I can't for the life of my figure it out.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!

A:Windows 7 No Dolby Digital Sound - Please HELP!

SOME audio systems only have two channel stereo output on digital. I've seen this on some of the Dell PC's with S/PDIF output. On those systems the only way to get more than two channel is to use the analog outputs on the sound.

This may be the case with yours too.

Hello, i have windows 10 64bit and Dolby digital plus sound system. I have two different questions:1) I noticed that Dolby digital plus system can only hold up to two sound sources at a time (it will enchant sound quality of 2 sources only). Is there a way to increase sound sources and make for ex. 3 of them? 2) Sound sometimes just vanishes (music is showing that is playing but no sounds are being heard). I have to mannualy go to playback devices -> speaker properties -> Advanced -> and change default format to any of 24bits and press ok. Is there a way to fix it?

My Lenovo B50-30 Touch notebook came preinstalled with win 8.1 Core OS.
 
Support page for this model is here:
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Lenovo-B-Series-laptops/Lenovo-B50-30-...
 
Due to an irrecoverable boot failure, I was forced to reinstall the OS & drivers.
 
The Realtek Audio Driver version 6.0.1.7245 used by me for reinstallation was present in partition D at the time of purchase.
 
For some reason, the equaliser for Dolby Digital Plus Advanced Audio is not working like before (screenshot at the bottom).
 
The controls are not staying at the positions set by me & keep resetting to the minimum always.
 
I have carefully followed the instructions posted in some forum threads regarding this issue, but none of them helped me in solving this problem.
 
I bought this notebook expressly for the powerful top-firing speakers along with the Dolby Digital Plus Advanced Audio equaliser.
 
Please help me restore the functionality of the equaliser for Dolby Digital Plus Advanced Audio.
 
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanking you in advance.

Hi.Recently I had my laptop sent for repair due to multiple BSOD. Since I got it back I noticed my Dolby icon was missing from the system tray. I've searched everywhere but couldn't find it so I decided to reinstall the Realtek driver with the latest provided by Lenovo support. However not only this did not fix my problem it also caused another. The Realtek Audio Manager is no longer in the system tray either. I'm hoping I could receive help for my problem. Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad English.

Hey everyone, this looks like a good forum and I'm glad to have discovered it.

So on to first post/problem;

I bought a new amplifier, mostly for listening music and for watching movies with (Kenwood RV7000). My laptop is Acer 5755G, and these two are connected with a HDMI-cable. My ampliefier supporst all kinds of Dolby digital sounds, though I cannot use them.

When I listen to FM radio, the amplifier lets me decide between Dolby digital listening modes, or the Pure Audio mode (some sort of pre-equalized thingy). I can also tune the sound with these Dolby modes.

So when I connect my laptop to the amplifier, I only get a PCM and a Stereo mode, with no settings for the sound. Another thing is my computer has a Dolby Advanced Audio v2 equalizer in my laptop, which does nothing when music goes through the HDMI to the amplifier. When I listen with my laptop speakers, it lets me equalize the sounds.

I've updated the Realtek HD Audio drivers, though I'm not sure if they do anything, since it only seems to be controlling the microphone.

Is there something wrong with the signal my laptop sends to the amplifier, or what? Starting to get a bit confused here.

A:HDMI / Dolby Digital problem

If the onboard card won't support digital surround then you won't be able to get it no matter what the reciever is capable of...although the reciever depending on its features might be able to code the signal into some sort of psuedo digital surround.

I had an old laptop with that problem and got around it by purchasing an external Audigy extigy sound card. I would think such a device is still made.

Audio System: Windows® compatible sound card (*Sound Blaster® Audigy(tm) series sound card RECOMMENDED) (NVIDIA® nForce or other motherboards/soundcards containing the Dolby® Digital Interactive Content Encoder required for Dolby Digital audio. Also RECOMMENDED)

This was taken form the system requirements. When it says that you need "Interactive content Encoder"

Does that mean you need a external amp/chip. Or just some software codec???
 

A:Unreal2 Dolby Digital content

From what i know, cards like SBLIVE 5.1 DE and SB LIVE Audigy have internal encoders for Dolby Digital feature. In other words they are capable of reproducing Dolby Digital audio.

It should not be a problem for your card to do the Dolby Digital thingey if you are playing the game.
