  1. If your laptop is Lenovo on Windows 10 i strongly recommend You to update your audio drivers. The last update Will get You dolby.
  2. Your default audio device is nvidia HD audio. I assume You connected your graphics card to the tv or the receiver via hdmi. Change it on sound properties, and make your sound bar the default sound device.
  3. If You have a nvidia graphics card is whorth to check if wake on lan is active in your nvidia control panel
  4. Optical is limited by the standard to 48 khz, anything above that Frequency Will cause distortion
  5. Optical is a standart with bandwith limitations. 5.1 is possible only via compressed signal and is up to the receiver if can decode the signal or not . Based on your description, the reason why your audio receiver is only playing stereo is becouse: - not all smart tvs output 5.1 compressed audio via optical. many just send stereo signal. - meanly becouse if you hook up your nvidia card to your tv, the EDID code from the tv will tell the card to send only R L sound signal (stereo). EDID codes act like an id between devices over hdmi and stablishe how the sound is delivered, 2.0
  6. Uninstalling the realtek drivers will do the trick. Windows 10 drivers are good enough
  7. I agree, maybe use this with the bt adapter https://www.amazon.com/Musou-Digital-Optical-Converter-Adapter/dp/B01AWBA8U8/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1550498983&sr=8-3&keywords=fiber+to+rca
  8. You don't need a bt sounbar. Just buy a bt adapter to hook up your 3.5 mm output from your tv ro the RCA input ports to a bt transmiter like this one https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Bluetooth-Audio-Adapter-Streaming/dp/B00IQBSW28/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?crid=1UQ1IM6O268C4&keywords=logitech+bt+adapter&qid=1550493916&s=gateway&sprefix=Logitech+bt+&sr=8-1 Aditionally you Will need a 3.5 mm to RCA cable to make it works
  9. https://www.amazon.com/Splitter-Amplifier-Composite-QiCheng-LYS/dp/B07BK55NVX/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1549832527&sr=8-3&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=multi+splitter+rca&dpPl=1&dpID=41mMO7NIF9L&ref=plSrch. Not balanced
  10. Start by unistalling rog HD audio drivers. The Windows default audio drivers are good enough, more compatible and more stable
  11. The answer for your question is here http://www.tomsguide.com/answers/id-3145031/ps4-home-theatre.html
  12. It's possible and I did it. I have the same setup that you describe, except for the LG tv (I own a Samsung tv). I run windows 7 Ultimate. So bear in mind when you follow this steps. - Setup your tv to playback sound over external speakers (Check the user manual) - Connect one extreme of your optical cable to the optical output from your tv - Connect the other extreme to the S/pdif optical in of the sound card - Connect the green, orange and black 3.5 mm cables to the front panel of the sound card - To make windows playback from the optical cable over
  13. The optical port on your tv it is in fact an out put. In your DAC => Inputs: Modi 2 Uber: USB, Toslink SPDIF, Coaxial SPDIF if you connect your optical output (toslink cable) from your Tv to the optical input into your DAC, it will work. In this case you will be using your tv as the receiver for the ps4 or any other hdmi device. I assume you have hooked up your speakers to your pc using the usb port in your DAC.as the source. In this case, only one aditional cable is require to acomplish your wish. To change between sources, toslink (optical) and usb, go to propert
  14. This will do the trick You just need a headphone jack splitter, 5 dollars or less.

    Youtube will playback stereo by deffault. I assume you have Logitech speakers. Those have a button (dot matrix I think..) that let you activate something similar to dolby prologic, wich let you run an emulated 5.1 signal from a stereo one. It is not real 5.1, but it will fill the space of your sepakers if that is you want to do.

    Lucidsound LS40

    PC/Mac Compatibility Follow LucidSound Updated : December 19, 2016 18:20 Created : December 19, 2016 18:20 USB and Optical (preferred method) If the computer has optical out and supports Dolby Live, the ideal setup will involve routing the game audio via Dolby Digital to the optical output on the computer. Then, route the chat application audio to the USB audio on the LS40. This setup will allow the left volume wheel to control game volume and mic monitor level while the right volume wheel will control the chat volume level, just as it does on a
  19. Try this pinned guide from @SSL, it is quite informative.
  20. With your actual headphones, You won't notice any significant improvement, even with a dedicated DAC/ headphone amp. Your on board sound is just right. To use the Supreme fx hi-fi in with your setup, you will need a jumped pc power supply and an extended usb header (most not came longer than a few inches), with all the cables hanging around. It is, in my opinion a hassle.

  22. Add surround effects to stereo sound. On your remote: Press [S.SRND]. Each time you press the button: MUSIC>MOVIE>PARTY>(off) MUSIC: Adds surround effects to stereo sources. MOVIE: Use this mode when playing movie software. PARTY: Sound is in stereo regardless of the direction you are facing.
