  2. Lumia 930 . Sound recorded is louder on the right ear plug

    Well it plays through my video player. Whether it is full 5.1 channel or just Lumia rich recording its fine. I can not expect stereo earphones the phone came with to play surround sound. But it does a good job making it seem to be surround sound. Hopefully
    in the future when I get the Lumia 930 to play a video through a 5.1 channel surround system I wont be disappointed. I truly believe it will work with a 5.1 channel surround system. If u have access to software that can take ur 5.1 channel surround sound video
    and put it on a disc. Try it on a surround sound home theatre system. Let me know how it sounds.

    Windows 10 not passing Dolby surround.

    Hello,

    Since you mentioned that you are able to hear the 5.1 surround sound from applications but not from web browsers or websites, it could be that those browsers or websites does not support 5.1 surround sound. You may have to download the application versions
    of those websites and see if they are capable to support 5.1 surround sound.

    If you have further questions, feel free to ask us.

    You have to have a 5.1 surround sound speaker set connected to your system.

    The only way you're going to get 5.1 from the laptop listed in your specs is by HDMI to a 5.1 receiver.

    and for me the only way I have found to do that is to set the software playing the DVD (I use Kodi) to use passthrough audio to HDMI. In the Sound control panel in Windows my HDMI connection still only shows as capable of stereo, but passthrough bypass that.

    Settings/System - Kodi

  8. 5.1 surround sound

    What player do you use? I find, that VLC gives me 5.1 sound unlike MPC-HC for example, which gives me only stereo.

  9. Hello, thanks, I was using Media Player also tried VLC but VLC from ms store doesn't see the files on the disc and won't open. VLC from web site plays dvd as stereo not 5.1. Just tried another dvd and works ok now
