Dolby Home Theater v4

2013-08-06, 20:01 PM

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS029566

 

I ran across the above link in my "travels".   It is a Lenovo download link for 

Dolby Home Theater v4 for Win. 7 x32 and x64 for ThinkPad S430 and

Twist S230u.

 

My question is can I use this link to upgrade from my currently installed

Dolby Home Theater v2 to Dolby Home Theater v4?  If so, any caveats?

 

Thanks,

Altoid666

I've wondered the same thing. It seems the v2 software can take a long time to open, when you want to switch profiles, and the X1 Carbon ships with the v4 software.

Hi Altoid666

You can't upgrade your Dolby Home Theater v2 to v4 with the factory audio driver. However, there is an option for you to upgrade to Dolby Home Theater v4 with custom audio driver. See my Dolby link below.

Hi PETER TWJ,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

I looked at the three links in yiour reply and was confused.

There seems to be many links(solutions) to consider.

 

Could you please provide one specific link to use to upgrade to 

Dolby Home Theater v4.  I also am not clear on how the "work around"

would get me to DHT v4 since you "can't directly upgrade from v2 to v4"

 

What is the end result of the workaround?  Will I have v4 installed vs v2?

Will I lose any capabilities etc.?

 

Thanks,

Altoid666

Hi Altoid666

Just click on the 1st link - Dolby and download the pdf guide.

Dolby Home Theater v4 provided is a sound driver itself. Dolby Home Theater v2 is just an add-on for manufacturer driver. It is not an upgrade, but a different set of solution.
