Windows 7: Win7 + X-Fi: Can't decode DD/DTS (Isn't this built into

Win7 + X-Fi: Can't decode DD/DTS (Isn't this built into

I'm getting a little frustrated because the latest Creative X-Fi drivers say this:

Quote:
Added Features or Enhancements:
For systems using Windows 7 or Windows Vista

* What U Hear feature is enabled.

To find out the Product ID of your audio device and if it supports the following feature in Windows XP, click here.

* Dolby® Digital and DTS® decode re-established for sound cards that included decoding in their Windows XP drivers (Not applicable for products that included a 3rd party software DVD player license in the package).
I've checked the compatibility, and my Xtreme Music supports this DD/DTS decoding.

However, in the audio console I do not have a decoder tab and my SPDIF I/O tab has the SPDIF drop-down grayed out and set to "Default".

How do I get my X-Fi Xtreme Music to hardware decode DD/DTS? (under Windows 7)

Please help!

I think you would have to take this up with Creative.
It's their driver.

Good luck

I think you need to pick this up for DD/DTS over SPDIF.
