    Xonar Phoebus - Dolby Digital Live not working Windows 10

    Once again after a major windows update Dolby is broken. You guys claim it's microsoft and it's not. Is dolby ever going to work again? or should I sell this card on ebay? because it's just collecting dust. The driver updates for the phoebus has been nothing but a huge joke for the past year+. This card has a dolby badge on it yet no support for it.

    I have an old Creative Sound Blaster x-fi Titanium released in september 2008''. This card is 8 years old and dolby works on it. Throughout all windows 10 insider preview versions with drivers from December 2015. Have a look for yourself.

    Ok, so I just installed Windows Insider Preview Build: 16199 that just released 12hrs ago. I reinstalled the phoebus into my machine for one last try. I can confirm DDL is working again at last. How long until it mysteriously breaks again is the question..... This has to do with a licensing issue with ASUS and dolby or something. It ain't microsoft. Because How is a card that's 8 and half years old from creative have DDL working this whole time while asus has problems?

    yes I'm participating in the windows insider program. (Fast Ring) I knew the Phoebus was broken before the creators update even happened. Because I had previews of the Creators update.

    The funny thing is that it really was Microsoft's fault this time.

    The fix (from Microsoft) is out to the "User" version (not insider) of the Creator's Update
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...date-kb4020102

    I do not have it installed (rolled back to Anniversary Update because of this issue), so if anyone tries it, let us know!

    The new update made DDL work for me on my Asus ROG Xonar Phoebus! Didnt even have to reinstall the drivers.
