Install this, should fix the issue. (extract to a temp folder and run the "DXSETUP" file)

Hey Ryan,

Three years and this bug popped up for me. Spent three hours before finding this thread. You should pin it. Thanks

If you still can't get your cabin sounds going after updating DirectX, particularly if you have a special sound card or special speakers (eg. subwoofers etc.), here's another thing to check:

 

Go into your soundcard device settings, and make sure you've selected the right speaker configuration for your actual speakers.

 

The soundcard setting application (usually available through control panel) is the place where you tell your soundcard all about your speakers, so it can send the right kinds of sounds, on the right channels, to the right speakers. For my Realtek soundcard (as an example: other soundcard setting apps are similar I believe), and a L/R and Subwoofer speaker set up, I needed to choose '5.1' for speaker configuration. 'Stereo' or 'Quadrophonic' or any other setting (except 'Headphones' - see below) wouldn't cut it.

 

The goal is for your soundcard channels to match your speaker setup.

 

An easy way to test to see if this might be the problem is to set your speaker configuration to 'Headphones' then check whether your FSX cabin sounds come out with this setting (through your headphones). The reason this is worth a go is because you're guaranteed to be able to match your soundcard output to headphone speakers: there are only 2 of them, left and right, no funny business with subwoofers, center speakers or rear speakers etc.!  The Speaker Configuration setting often also has a test file to play which runs through sending sound out to each speaker it thinks is there. Play this file, and make sure it repeats the sound on each speaker. Again, if the sound file plays with a 'gap' it's likely your either missing a speaker (so the channel output goes nowhere), or your speaker configuration is wrong. An additional thing to check: make sure you only have 'Optional Speakers' checked for speakers you actually have (and plugged in!).

 

The goal of all this is to make sure your soundcard recognises your speakers (number and type) and can send the sounds from the right channel in your soundcard to the right speaker plugged in to your computer.

 

Like a few other people, I've been sitting on this problem (no cabin sounds in PMDG 737-800 NGX) for a couple of years until today I finally decided to sort it out. I knew it was a setting problem somewhere, because I know they used to work, but re-installing PMDG 737 didn't fix things. Interestingly, I had no problems with my PMDG 747.

 

And yes....this thread is definitely worth a pin!!!
