What are the settings on the yammy for the computer input? What is your tv? How is your tv connected to the yammy?
I have a sneaky suspicion that it is your HDMI TV that is giving the drop outs on the sound. When i am listening to music on my blu ray and turn off or on the TV I get a momentary drop of sound while the yammy acknowledges the presence or lack of signal from the TV.
Try an audio only signal from the yammy to rule out the TV. If the audio still drops when there is no TV on then it is the receiver and the setting need to be tweaked. If there is no audio issue, then look to how you have the TV configure with 1: the yammy and 2: the TV itself.
From Post 1991 - "You didn't mention what brand display/TV you are using, but I have had issues in the past with my Samsung... make sure HDMI Control/CEC/Anynet+/VieraLink is off on you display and see if that helps (and also turn it off on the A1000 (HDMI Control.)"
Best of luck in this.
I'm using a 52" Sharp Aquos LE800 and I'm currently running Windows 7. I'm using an NVidio 9800GT and I've gone through three sound cards: SoundBlaster X-Fi, SoundBlater X-Fi Titanium HD, and now a cheaper Auzentech X-Raider 7.1 just to try a different manufacturer.
I've basically got the PC hooked up via DVI->HDMI to AV1 on the receiver. I then had the sound card connected to the coax input on AV1, and later switched to optical by assigning the TOSLink from Audio 5 to AV1. Both inputs caused the same sort of dropout.
From there I'm running a single HDMI (Monster) out to my TV.
When the audio drops I either see that the speaker indicators go out on the receiver if it's PCM audio, or I'll see DECODER OFF if it's Dolby Digital audio.
What settings can I tweak? I've looked at the settings related to that input and there isn't much. I think they are all set to defaults right now. HDMI control is currently turned off on the receiver... not sure I ever saw that setting on my TV. I will check though!
Last night I turned off the PC entirely so I can test if it's a heat issue this morning. I find it odd that when I first test my "fixes" that everything seems fine initially.
I'm in a tough spot now. I think it's either my PC or my receiver... but everything WAS working fine connected to my RX-V2400.
