    What are you updating in the XMB5 package for the creative to make it function after you have it installed? The XMB5 installs without an issue but when it trys to run, just like Creative Connect 2 - It says "The current selected audio device is disabled, not present, not supported by the application, or has unplugged jack connections."

    What do you change to make it work?

    I don't have Realtek, I have Intel NIC, "i211 Gigabit Network Connection".

    I have reverted a while ago to original Asus driver for Realtek sound (from January) and now I have this.

    First -in realtek package files HDXMB3HD.INF add string with Your realteck ID chips on motherboard.Find id on this

    Open HDXMB3HD.INF and add string
    [AzaliaManufacturerID.NTamd64.6.0]
    "Realtek Audio" = IntcAzAudModel, HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0892&SUBSYS_1458A182 (its my audio id ! Your id another)
    Disable signature druver verification and installed HDXMB3HD.INF driver.reboot
    Download my archives Creative.rar - Google Drive with creative aktivator.Install xi-fi mb5 from archive.Reads Instruction in Aktivador folders and step by step aktivation Xi-Fi mb5.reboot.Enjoy

    I am assuming you are using a Realtek ALC889A or similar that has/had Dolby Digital Live (real time 5.1 encoding) support? I had that codec in my last board and was able to set it to do DDL encoding/output. I don't know now because that main board is now in my Linux machine, but I have read that they simply stopped including it in the drivers, so you may want to just use older ones if you can. I think I was on Windows 7 and R271 (whatever version that was) at the time.

    Now I have an inferior ALC892 that I do not believe ever supported DDL (but apparently can still be modded to work?).

    Here's some modded drivers to fix it? I have never tried these so...no idea how they work. I would just use the older driver if they still work though.
    Hi Quexos, actually I have ALC892 8-channel Audio Codec onboard as well, which supports DTS Ultra-PC2 and DTS Connect.
    Why would we need new drivers all the time for Realtek if they just take-out the best features, namely 5.1 support on Optical Out.
    Anyone that has 5.1 over Optical with ALC892 working in combination with the latest drivers on MUC?

    Thanks,
    OtKr

    5.1 over optical works for me, but only if it is already encoded in 5.1, like a DVD movie or something. Games and the like only output 2 channel over optical unless you can get the sound card to encode it "on the fly" into 5.1 DDL (dolby digital live). I thought that was what you meant. That is what they, apparently, removed a while back. I just gave up messing with 5.1 audio quite a while ago because I got tired of all the extra wires required to do it reliably via analog output, and fiddling to get it working right. I just opted for really good 2.1 sound instead.

    Interesting. I never use on-board audio as I would usually get something high-end instead.

    Realtek 2.81 driver has 5.1 DDL available as output, actually working quite well for me with optical out. But, as I like to move along with latest technologies, I'm disappointed that it's not there anymore. I guess all other users will be as well. So, despite all regular updates of Realtek drivers on MUC, they are in fact all inferior to me, since no point installing them. Real(tek) crazy I call that.

    So this uses that creative activator (if its the same one as I see on other websites) that virus total and windows defender want none of. lol
    Ive been trying to find a way to do it without the activator since the software installs fine. Maybe the activator that you are using is different? I mean, it could just be an obfuscation which it doesnt like, but a lot of the things on virus total report it as a trojan.

    Again, not specifically the one you linked. I have not downloaded it. I just know from when I was trying to do this before that even the one linked on techreport's forum (which is the one that I tested) by one of the people that post there all the time for driver stuff, is the one with trojans in it. (according to virus total scan)

    Do you know if there is a way to activate it, so to speak, without using an application? Ive even gone as far as taking the old MBAPO232 and MBAPO264 files from a pre 16.x.x.100 build of the files (which doesnt lock out hardware) and still couldn't get it to work.

    If anyone feels comfortable with messing with it, the link to the techreport thread on it is here Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers for Windows 10 (Dolby Digital Live/DTS Interactive) | Page 4 | TechPowerUp Forums

    I really would like to figure out the proper (even if not fully legit) method of getting either X MB 5 or Creative Connect 2 to run with Realtek drivers (as they do for other motherboards).

    I have an on going dialog with ASUS currently, they are speaking with their software engineer and seeing if they can release a newer version of the realtek sonic studio combo for the Maximus VII. They are very slow going and I am thinking I would get better audio from using the creative application anyway.

    Anyone already using it, does it use a lot of system resources? Sonic studio with realtek drivers appears to take about 3.8% of my overclocked 4790k during video games.

    Sorry if this was a lot for one post.

    Do you know which of the three activators to use? Is this the one that makes multiple folders when you run it?

    I have not downloaded your archive yet to scan it on virustotal. I was not saying it was a trojan, just that the other activators ive seen like the one on techreport show up as a trojan when scanned.

    I wonder why we need to use an activator if our realtek driver doesnt have the MBAPO that has the lock? I thought that the creative X MB 5 looked at that to see if it was supposed to run or not. So if someone had a legit gigabyte motherboard for that driver, what does it do differently when installed that it doesnt do for my asus?

    Thanks for your help :)
