Hi Everyone, here's the latest driver for the NU Audio Card. 
Release Notes (v0.1.3.0):
  • Adds support for Dolby Digital/DTS encoded 5.1 format pass-through via S/PDIF
  • Update driver version to v4.66.0
  • Update F/W version to 0x2B
 
Note - When Dolby Digital/DTS pass through is active, volume control for S/PDIF is disabled in the NU Audio Software
 
Note #2 - Please note that the new firmware version is incompatible with older driver versions.  If you have an issue after updating the driver/firmware, reinstalling an older driver version may cause problems.

Let us know what you think, or if you run into any issues.

    It’s good to see the great support of driver updates this card is getting.

    Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

    Try uninstalling first, go into App Data > Local > EVGA and remove a folder called Nua.exe_Url_[random characters].
     
    Restart, then try reinstalling 0.1.3.0.  It should also popup a menu to update your firmware when you open it.
     
    I have installed this on my test bench (worked the first time), so I know it should work.  Let me know if you still have trouble.

    On my test bench, I closed the software, then installed the new version over the last one.  Next time I opened it, it asked me to update the firmware.  Afterwards, I opened it up normally. 


    In other words, shouldn't need to uninstall/reinstall.  It's only if you run into issues that you might need to.  On a side note, because of the checks the driver installer does normally, you might need to reboot once or twice.  It wasn't necessary during my install, however.

    Closed mine as well. Downloaded the software, Avast interrupted 4 times saying "Hey, lemme look, this might be bad!" Restarted and up popped the downloader and everything downloaded just fine. All running good.

    I used to run Avast.  I remember how annoying that was, especially when you would get ready to launch something for the first time, and then you go through a few cycles of that, lol.  Glad to hear everything is working.

    Hah, Windows Defender since my last install of Windows.  Just too lazy to reinstall anything else, and I haven't run into a virus or other issue since.  Avast was my primary A/V before that.  I'll probably use it again in the future, despite many instances of it causing more headaches than it seems to prevent at times.  Then again, free is free.

    hi got the new dolby working along with the new driver update had no issues installing apart from panda saying "this is bad, let me quarantine it". I have noticed though the volume on the Dolby is quite low? i dont know if this is intended or i just haven't tried other audio sample rates.
     
    Thanks for the hard work guys keep going! :D

    The volume is locked when you use something that passes through Dolby or DTS.  Presumably, your speakers or receiver might need to adjust the volume at that place in the chain.

    Hi Lee, from what i see in windows i only have the option to select it on or off or test, there is no volume control for the dolby on my receiver or in windows. Receiver decodes it just fine though but its really quiet. I'm guessing since this is pre dolby release there is more to come and i look forward to it. All the bugs i mentioned i was experiencing with the equalizer have gone. Fully tested and woke up my neighbors lol.
     
    I'm thinking of buying the Dolby Home theater software to try that but if there will be more dolby updates i can hold off on that for now.
    Thanks
    Stevie

    I need help, I just installed the new drivers, updating the firmware and I can not activate the digital dolby or dts, what's more, I do not see them anywhere, I still receive the stereo sound.
    Of course I connected the sound card via a spdif cable to my digital receiver Denon AVR-1601
    As active then the digital dolby or the dts? .Thanks

    The Dolby Digital/DTS on the NU Audio Card is passthrough support only; not upsampling a stereo source through encoding.  The material you wish to use with Dolby/DTS needs to already be encoded in Dolby or DTS in order to send that to your receiver.

    If it's passing through Dolby/DTS, then the S/PDIF volume control (through the NU Audio SW) is disabled.  Otherwise, the S/PDIF volume control matches what you have for Windows.

    hmmm, im finding the s/pdif is not disabled in the NU audio SW and is controlling the sound. I guess it's not supposed to be selected in NU Audio?

    I think I might need a bit more information.  What program/game/etc. are you using, and what do have the S/PDIF connected to (speakers, receiver, etc.)?

    ok i have logitech 906 surround system 5.1 connected through s/pdif to evga nu audio card. I do not have any Audio programs (though i hear FuBar is good) apart from the Nu Audio SW. the Surround come as is with no install disk or software. Im using the Sound speaker controller icon through windows taskbar to configure dolby and the khz as it doesn't register in the nu audio when its changed unless i use the taskbar speaker icon properties. I tried dolby home theater v4 software but it only detects HD audio not the EVGA card. The S/PDIF is connected to the main sound controller on my surround subwoofer then the receiver is plugged into the controller along with the rest of the speakers. It's a built-in controller with a plug in addon receiver that come with the system.
     
    I tried to do a fresh install of the program and drivers and was met with blue screen on windows loading "asmtxhci.sys caused an error" which is my asmedia usb controller/s. I fixed it with a roll back got the fresh install done and s/pdif was disabled and hd audio was enabled and there was no sound unless i connected to onboard s/pdif. Win10 detects the card as a usb device. not sure if thats normal.
    I did notice, evga s/pdif sound was disabled upon fresh install of Nu Audio SW and the device was available in sound controller manager (right click on taskbar speaker) it is not selected as default device tho. When i use EVGA S/PDIF as default device the volume becomes enabled.
     
    Don't get me wrong, the dolby works though i have to turn the system sound down to 20 and the receiver sound up to 50 to balance it. It works in games that support surround like Diablo 3 and World of Warcraft. Win10 detects it as a 2 channel sound option only but in games its fine.

    I haven't had too much time to test some of this myself, but I will try to do so over the weekend and get back to you.

    How exactly do I enable DTS?  with my older Soundblaster ZXR all I had to do what tick the box for DTS in the soundblaster software and 5.1 channels will show up on my hometheater receiver screen.  With this NU audio card I select S/PDIF but the i'm still only seeing 2 channels on my receiver.  My rear channel test sound comes out of the front speakers and not the rear.
