I have been working on this for days and I'm about to give up! I had this working before with Windows 7 (32-bit), but something changed and now I can't get any Dolby digital or DTS detected on my receiver. I'm running SPDIF from my Chaintech AV-710. I have tried multiple drivers (5.40a, 5.40f), and currently have 4.73b installed. I also have installed AC3filter, WM Classic, and have tried Zoomplayer, VLC Player, PowerDVD, and still no surround. I do have sound from my receiver, but it just isn't detecting the Dolby or DTS like it should be. I have read threads for hours and have tried just about everything. I know there is a trick to setting up the VIA "Audio Deck" control panel in order to get it to work, so maybe that's my only problem. If anyone could give me any help I would greatly appreciate it. Or, if anyone has a suggestion for a cheap, Win 7 compatible sound card with Toslink, that would probably be helpful too! Thanks again for everyone's help...

Unfortunately that guide is for using the surround outs in high quality mode to use a secondary wolfson dac on the card for very good bit-perfect 2 channel audio.


I can't actually help you set it up, just didn't want to get confused looking at the guide.

I don't know if this helps(I use WinXP) but using the guide above I can only get DD/DTS using Reclock. I use headphones on the Alt out port and have toslink connected to a receiver for movies. Here's how I have it set it up



Using this setup my receiver lights up with Dolby Digital and DTS.

I also have an old AV-710 sound card I wanted to use. I found your other post and tried the guys reply link and the driver seems to work in Win7 64bit. I don't know about the optical out but the other drivers wouldn't even install on Win7 and these sail right through.


See post 445 in the link below.
