    Well, not entirely. You can get 2.0 from either analog or USB on PS4. All the other console options are analog only.

    Turning 3D On on the Mobius will enable both the Mobius' VSS (Waves NX) and head tracking; you can't have head tracking by itself. So, if you're running SBX on the G6 and then applying Mobius' 3D On, you're doubling the VSS processing. @Hansotek, is that how you're doing it, or did you turn 3D Off on the Mobius so that you're just using a stereo planar with the G6's SBX?

    You would have to turn off the Mobius processing in this instance. And it doesn't work on the PS4 in any case. So he's fine.

    The Mobius's processing is on the whole time. When I run through the PS4 only, I'm getting 2.0 with head tracking - it seems like the sound is coming from mostly in front of me. Rear cues aren't very strong. When I ran it through the G6, it seems like they are coming from all around me. I guess I'm doubling the VSS processing? It doesn't seem incompatible in any way so far, but I only played for a couple minutes, as I said before. Sounded cool though.

    Can somebody explain what the SBX button does? I'm confused.

    Thank you for the quick answer... Which cable for the aux to the audio gd? The audio gd had no aux in .. Maybe with this


    Do you think this can work?

    Sounds like you are only using the VSS of the G6. SBX is Creative's VSS.
  6. Vader2k
    Yeah sounds like you're doubling VSS processing, but if it sounds good, nothing wrong with that! I think on early Mobius impressions, someone (@AxelCloris maybe? or @Mad Lust Envy?) mentioned using the Mobius doubled off the Mixamp and found it to still be decent too.

    The manual states the SBX button lets you enable/disable a profile. I haven't used my G6 yet, but I'm guessing it's either a preset or custom profile you make in the software and then save it to the G6 to be enabled when not on PC.

    Does anyone know if the sound settings of a TV effect the X7? Had the X7 connected to my PS4 via optical and was using the PS4 on a monitor. Everything worked fine. Now I hooked the PS4 up to a tv (Sony x900f) and the X7 isn't giving me sound to the PS4 anymore. Dolby decoder light not turning on anymore.

    I toggled it on and off variously and tried the scout mode. You can't turn off the processing for Mobius unless you turn 3d mode off. Believe me, it's super obvious if it's on or off.

    Are you running the optical from the TV to the X7? If so you need to tell your TV to pass through dolby digital, or AC-3, via the optical out. I would assume there is a setting to toggle that somewhere on your TV. (Have to do that on my LG).

    If you're running the optical from the PS4 to the X7, I don't own a PS4 so I can't tell you if there is a setting somewhere to tell your PS4 to do optical out rather than HDMI out for audio. (If you were doing it that way with your monitor before and did not change anything I don't know why it would revert back but maybe check).
  10. Hansotek
    Yeah, so it seems that button is just a custom setting for your VSS preferences. I think it does Dolby headphone mode regardless of whether or not it's engaged. Scout mode was definitely Dolby.

    I definitely do NOT like having the Mobius 3D on WITH some external surround processing like SBX. On PS4 I would advise to turn OFF Mobius 3D and use the G6's SBX on. Also make sure yoyr PS4 sound settings are set to Dolby Digital through the optical out. In PC that's the best place to use the Mobius 3D button when connected by USB on its 8ch mode.
  12. Vader2k
    Wait... a Creative device, but implementing Dolby VSS?!? But I'm trying to move on from DH!!! Haha, sorry, just being unnecessarily melodramatic.

    Seriously, though, is it really Dolby's VSS tech? Sure, it's decoding DDL, but wouldn't it's still be Creative's VSS, even if it may not be called SBX this time around?
  13. Hansotek
    You lost me. I'm still learning my way around this device, so let's ease up on the trivia for now. I probably said something wrong in there somewhere. I'm sure I can rely on this thread to jump all over my nuts about it.

    No, the SBX button will activate the current profile stored in the memory, connect to a pc to change it. There is no Dolby headphone in either G6 or X7, it's Creatives own proprietary VSS. The level of SBX surround is set in the profile, and can be changed when hooked up to a PC.

    If surround (SBX surround) is not activated you will get a stereo downmix of the DD 5.1 source.

    So on consoles you will get SBX 5.1 connect to a PC (windows drivers) you can get an SBX upmix to 7.1

    No I'm running optical to PS4. All settings are correct.
