    Dolby Digital Plus?


    What is this? I see it replaced my "enhancements" tab and got rid of my "speaker fill", so now my sound is worse than ever. All it has in the Dolby tab is "On/Off"... that's it.

    Help?

    Dolby Digital is a speaker and sound enhancement software directly related to the onboard soundcard, it provides audio fine tuning similar to EQ settings.

    Alright... But, how do I use it?

    I can't use 5.1 Surround sound anymore since the Win 10 upgrade, and everything is up to date. The Dolby option just has "On/Off", nothing to enable 5.1 sound.

    Do you have a 5.1 speaker setup?

    Usually Dolby enhancement software just has an on/off button and a settings buttons in the taskbar's icon when double clicked to fine tune other audio settings.

    I use a headset, like a gaming headset. I'm pretty sure I used 5.1 sound back in Win 7. But, I had "speaker fill" and "enhancements" in Realtek. That's what I used to make my audio not sound like it's coming out of a tiny box. The Dolby is set to "On"... but I can't find any options to tweak anything whatsoever.

    You can't use 5.1 sound as the decoder would require hardware in the form of 5.1 speakers in order for the it to work properly.

    I think you're getting confused with Virtual Surround which is what the Dolby Digital software can emulate to make it seem like you're getting a 5.1 sound stage out of 2 speakers.

    But... How do I use my speaker fill/Dolby?

    I'm forever listening to a muffled box now.
