TOSHiBA Virtual Sound M | Sound output enhancement

Recommended Posts

Jeroen

Installed it. everything went OK till that point...

If i open the Control Utility, and change stuff, nothing seems to happen with my sound... it stays like it always has been...

Maybe my soundcard isnt supported ?

I have a Sony VAIO FE21M with a Sigmatel soundcard, don't know which one for sure...

EDIT: SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC

Jeroen, post the logfile output of NERD or TVSASI , then we know if your card/service is missing.

Hi, I just installed the application seeing that my soundcard and service are already supported (IntcAzAudAddService - RealTek HD) but when i restarted all the sounds were all weird, like distorted, the only sound that worked was the sound from the WMP, in which i didn't notice any difference. So i uninstalled the program, and ran the application to confirm that my soundcard is compatible, and it gave me this results:

I checked the name of the service manually in the driver properties, and its the IntcAzAudAddService, which is supported, what can i do?

Hi,

My Tosh has SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio - the TVS M is fabulous in its extra facilities, but on my laptop it inserts quite a lot of background noise into the original signal. this is audible on all the audio sources I have tried (DVD, streamed radio etc.) and vanishes when TVS is turned "off". Anybody else have this problem?

I wonder if any current sound effect applications running at background are cousing problems. As far as I know, SoundMAX and Sound Blaster cards have both their own sound effect applications.

I've had a look - the only available audio controls I can find relating to SoundMAX are the basic volume controls. If anyone can point me to where maybe some hidden controls might be?

Tried moving away from automatic XT/WOW choice, and it seems that it is WOW causing the noise; if I set it to XT only, the noise is almost gone (On the basis that there will always be a slight background noise increase as you add processing units)

Also, with WOW enabled, any increase of the SRS level produces A LOT of hiss!

The same happens on my Desktop System (ABIT KT7A) with a SoundBlaster Live (already made a note in the first post weeks ago). Looks like some devices are not compatible with TVS or need special settings.

There are lots of flags for bits, speaker configuration and stuff. Maybe they must be changed?

Hm... I took a look at NERD, and adapted it in a way that it basically generates an .inf file on-the-fly using DEVCON. I'm going to post it here for people to test if it generates a valid .inf file (basically, one with the correct audio service). If everything looks okay, I'm going to use this cmd file instead of adding manually :)

Run Tvs.cmd. You'll find the relevant information in the [Tvs_Parameters_AddReg] section -- compare the ServiceName1 with your actual audio service name. Please reply telling me if it worked or not. Thanks.

Edit: Whoops, I just realized I called it an "ini" generator, instead of "inf" generator... oh well :)

Er, there was no reason to post the entire thing, note that I only asked for the [Tvs_Parameters_AddReg] section... Anyway, did you extract DEVCON.exe along with and into the same directory as Tvs.cmd before running Tvs.cmd?

@Guest:

Run Tvs.cmd. You'll find the relevant information in the [Tvs_Parameters_AddReg] section -- compare the ServiceName1 with your actual audio service name. Please reply telling me if it worked or not. Thanks.

The script as used by Ultima cannot determine HDAUDIO as devcon only looks for MEDIA PCI devices. It (also for NERD) needs to be adjusted in a later release.

Oh... I just created one that uses WMIC if it found it... Would it be safe to assume that I'd have to use DEVCON as such:

DEVCON hwids =MEDIA HDAUDIO*

?

I just assumed that the SRS utility wouldn't work with external soundcards, but since the guy above me just posted that, could you try adding support for generic USB devices?

I'm using the Zalman ZM-RSSC 5.1 Soundcard, but I doubt that matters because it's running the generic service "usbaudio".

TV Tuner is a sound device as well, that's the reason. Try the manual way explained in the first post to find your actual sound card service.

I have recently purchased a new Toshiba Satelite Pro I have followed your instructions for finding out the service name and sound card details which I post bellow

Card Name = Conextant AC-Link Audio

Service Name = CAMCAUD

I hope you can use these details to add this soundcard to be one of the supported models

Cheers and keep up the good work
