    I can confirm that DDL works but it is useless as the sample frequency used is 48 KHz, which causes drops in audio games.

    DDL was a Microsoft issue and OK, but audio drops are an Asus issue, so come on ASUS fix this damned issue please!!!!!

    was hoping to come in and see an update and it's a sad update.

    i'm having the same issue as you, audio drops in games only, watching video has no issue.

    c'mon Asus!

    looks like no more further updates for the phoebus. a big "shove it up your ass" by the Asus team.

    well, it's the end for me with the phoebus, no DDL, this card can shove it.

    just got the creative Omni 5.1 external instead, 1/3 the price and gets the job done.

    was fun while it lasted but no more soundcard from Asus anymore for me. good riddance.

    Driver Fix for Phoebus

    Yes Windows 10 update borked my Dolby Home Theater as it does on every update. This time Microsoft is not letting me roll back to the previous build. I keep deleting the download files and within minutes the Update is downloading again.

    However i searched the old forum posts and found a solution for my system. There is a beta driver unavailable on the Asus site. Go to the following link.

    http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/SOU...ndows-10.shtml

    4_2_6 beta works where 4_2_9 does not. Why I have no idea but my Asus Phoebus and Dolby Sound is working properly as it did yesterday.

    I hope this works for you, it's still flat out the best sound I've ever had from a sound card. Without the Dolby Home Theater it is not much better than my on board sound.

    Hey, thanks! This one worked better and THX worked, but now I'm not able to enable DDL? I am able to rollback to where everything is working, but it would be nice to have everything working with the new update without having to buy a new sound card..

    I'm a big Asus fan and have always purchased their motherboards. Why Asus would build a great sound card like the Phoebus and then bail on driver updates has been a disappointing experience. I'll struggle on with the card for a while longer but it is not an experience that I want to repeat. I have a Sound Blaster that is years older than the Phoebus but still has driver support. Keep at it with the driver you should be able to get everything up and running.
