Windows 7: Digital Sound

14 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Digital Sound


I am using the X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty sound card.

My headphones are the Tritton AXPro headphones. The "Dolby Decoder Box" that comes with the headphones shows the sound as "PL" instead of "Digital".

I have installed Windows 7 RC 64 bit and the latest Beta drivers from Creative's website. My problem is that I can't get digital to work. Anyone know how?

Hey there,

You need to make sure you are setting this stream in the Creative interface panel and not just in the Windows control panel...or the setting will not take hold.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll give it a try.

Update: OK, I started up Creative Software Autoupdate and downloaded a bunch of software, but the last option for "dolby digital live" wouldn't install on Windows 7 RC so I installed it using "Vista SP2" compatibility mode and it worked. Now I have digital sound!
