Catalyst Control Center Showing Incorrect Driver Version

Help! I'm trying to get my new R9 390 to work!!! I'm on Windows 10 64-bit.


This problem is in relation to an issue I am experiencing where HDMI audio will not play on the 15.7.1 drivers. I realize a beta driver (15.8) corrects this problem, but I've tried multiple things, recommended on these boards, to get this to work to no avail.


  • I've tried installing the beta drivers, but HDMI sound still isn't available
  • I've tried rolling back the HD Audio driver from the 15.7.1 drivers, but that didn't work either
  • I've even let Windows Update install the most recent drivers - which it installed the display drivers and HD Audio drivers separate - and that doesn't work.


But interestingly, that last issue has me scratching my head. Catalyst Control Center shows a different HD Audio driver than Windows 10 Device Manager does.


Windows Device Properties shows the most recent HD Audio driver from the Beta drivers:

Catalyst Control Center shows a different version:


See the attached screenshot.


I can't help but feel this might be the culprit? Catalyst Software Update also says I'm up to date with drivers.


EDIT: On a related note, this is happening on my second display - I have the PC hooked up to my HDTV via my receiver, and I'll play games in Big Picture in 1080p on that. When I'm just using my monitor, I use the Realtek speakers hooked up to my monitor, and I'll manually switch between the two. Never had a problem doing this with my Nvidia cards. When I test the HDMI sound through the Sound->Playback Devices->Configure Speakers option, my receiver goes from PCM showing all seven speakers to Decoder Off with no speakers available. So I think this definitely is a driver-related issue. I have no problems getting the extended desktop to display.


Please help!
