U310 - Dolby Home Theater: how do I activate it?

2013-11-08, 15:39 PM

 

Hi y'all at Lenovo community.

 

Lenovo U310 - i5 - 8GB - 32 GB SSD - 500GB HD - upgraded van W7 home premium naar W8 pro naar W8.1 pro

 

Due to Windows 8.1 growing pains I disabled and uninstalled Dolby Home theater and I was waiting for a new update of the Conexant driver.

 

The other day Lenovo presented te new driver so I downloaded and installed it.

And I noticed Dolby Digital Plus Home theater (DDPHT) was active in the program overview.

 

However, I'm asking myself what DDPHT does to the sound.
All I see is the submap DolbyGUI in Program Files/Conexant containing a setup64.exe but no program that does any job, nor do I see any Dolby-related items in Windows Start.

And I see no Dolby items in taskmanager.

 

So how's that?

 

Sincerely,

Jim

hi papadiva

 

Open Control Panel and set the View by: Option on the top right of the screen to small icons And it should have an Icon for Dolby Home Theater

 

Refer to this thread on how it should look like,

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-Z-and-P-series/Dolby-Home-Theater-v4-lower-sound-quality/m-p/1199414

 

The Windows 8.1 upgrade issue about Dolby has been resolved,

      -You will have to uninstall the Audio Driver from device Manager and Uninstall Dolby under Control Panel

      - Install the *.1 Audio driver from Lenovo support site

      - Open Drive C:driver/Conexant/ DolbyGUI folder and it should have a Dolby HT Installer to install back Dolby Home              theater app

 

Hope this helps

Cheers!

As a matter of fact, please look at the screenprint: I don't see any possibility to change the frequency curves.

Is there any explanation?
