Everyone that keeps an eye on Microsoft’s moves knows the company has been planning the release of an update that will completely change the face of its latest operating system, Windows 10. And because of this, the Creators Update has quickly become one of the most anticipated pieces of software ever put out by Microsoft.

That happened some time ago, however. Since then, Microsoft has spent time developing the Creators Update, with numerous Windows Insider builds hitting the Fast and Slow Rings for eager consumers who couldn’t wait until the full release.

Now that the testing is finally over, users are excited to welcome the Creators Update onto their systems. However, as was expected, not everything is pink clouds and rainbows when dealing with software and software releases. Some problems have already emerged regarding the Creators Update:

Hi.

I recently updated to version 1703. DTS Connect not working anymore. Realtek HD Audio (ALC1150). I already tried to reinstall the realtek driver.

Please fix it ASAP

User lash78 on Microsoft’s answers.microsoft.com platform made an inquiry about an already discovered problem with the new Creators Update. According to them, the update caused DTS Connect to stop functioning, which led to a problem which was hard to ignore. They also mention their driver specifications, hoping that it might be of some help.

Home Theater setup

There were multiple suggestions in the chat as a reply to this user’s inquiry, but none seemed to work. The user returned to state that the problem had been finally solved by getting a new receiver for their Home Theater setup. The new receiver allows them to send PCM audio through HDMI over 8 channels, uncompressed.

Fixed… I bought a new 7.1 Home Theater Receiver 😀 Now, i can send 8 channel uncompressed PCM audio over HDMI.

It would seem that the first hiccup of the Creators Update has been somewhat managed, although an official response or solution hasn’t been provided yet.
