Is there any chance that you can help with my setup?
OS: Windows 7
Graphics: XFX Core Edition FX-785A-ZNL4 Radeon HD 7850
Receiver: PIONEER VSX-1121-K
TV: Panasonic VIERA TC-P60ST30
Everything works fine and the audio formats seem ok (see list below), but when I switch the input on the receiver from the HTPC to the cablebox and back to HTPC, I lose audio on XBMC. If I close XBMC and restart, the audio will work again, but it is becoming more and more painful since XBMC hangs up. Kids don't know how to use teamviewer to kill it and restart it. I tried following the guide to merge the ini file using moninfo and it appears to be in override, but it always seems to break when I switch inputs.
Dolby Digital Plus
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Argh... I took another look around the PC and noticed that I had power saving enabled to shutoff the display and put the PC to sleep. I went ahead and set them to "never" for now to see if this is a contributor to the audio loss issue. I'll post back later to tell if it worked or not. Thanks!
I confirmed today that the year old problem was a result of power saving settings on the HTPC ... All is good now. Thanks!
