Microsoft Windows Updates would have also removed Media Player Codecs During Late Sept Early Oct 2015 on windows Auto Updates so you will need to do this anyway Windows 10 users especially.

Firstly  Get yourself the New dts Source Filter Codec here >

DownloadDTS/AC3 Source Filter – Black Edition (x86) 32 bit

Download DTS/AC3 Source Filter – Black Edition (x64) 64 bit

the Dts Source filter  is A Simple small install that will tell your System your Sound card has AC3 Dolby and Dts Capabilities and selects the proper sound configeration is all.

If your one of the many users who upgraded to Windows 10 so eagerly your probably pulling your hair out right about now wondering why Since Upgrading to Windows 10 that your windows Media Players can no longer play audio.

Reason For this is because Microsoft only update their software with general PCM Codecs,  meaning you have lost your old AC3 and Dts Source Filters now and have to get new ones to work with Windows 10.

Never Fear…Joe is here.

For HD Blu Ray And MKV movies on your PC in 5.1 Dolby or Dts 7.1- Ex you will also need to choose the New Direct show Filters now available from Shark007, which features support for H.264, Winx, Xvid,Divx, Mpeg2, Mkv, Mov, MXF, and Web Streaming  Available here Advanced Codecs-557

During the Setups on all these installs Select your Preferred Media Player, Like Windows Media Centre, Quicktime, Divx player or Windows media Player,

and take your time to select options and read through them Especially the  SPDIF /Toslink  options, otherwise your sound card will send all audio to your SPDIF / Toslink Coax connection looking for an external Surround amp should you wish to hear audio through your onboard Speakers.  don’t select this unless you have a surround sound amp connected to a SPDIF on your PC.
