I too had the same issue after updating to Windows 1709. As far as I know windows has removed Dolby Digital Plus from the system as it no longer supports the current version of Windows 10 version. Instead Microsoft has added their own version of Sound as you can see in the picture.

Finally I got it fixed by reinstalling the driver. Now everything works fine. Thanks for the reply and your time.
