New AV Receiver (Yamaha RX-V471), PC audio intermittently cuts out for a split second.

Hey guys, I'm new here, figured this would be the best place to post my question/problem based on your guy's reputation and general knowledge of this field.

Anyways, I just recently purchased a Yamaha RX-V471 AV Receiver, and I'm having issues with it while connected to my PC while playing music, watching videos, podcasts, etc (doesn't seem to do it while gaming on my PC).

The audio intermittently drops out for a split second and it's kind of frustrating. Like probably once every 2-8 minutes. Doesn't matter if the receiver is warm or not. Doesn't seem to matter which HDMI port it's plugged into or what HDMI cable I'm using. It doesn't do this on my Xbox 360 AT ALL. Also, my 360 is outputting Dolby Digital Plus while my PC is outputting PCM audio (not sure if that's a big deal).

The video does not drop out or anything, although I had an RX-V373 before this that had the EXACT same symptom on my PC only (but I had to return that because of image flickering issues).

I am outputting through a Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 via HDMI.

I have tried tinkering with the playback options, using the catalyst control center, etc...But nothing seems to fix the issue.

Thanks for any help!!! biggrin.gif

Hi , Are you playing back video that has been ripped and compressed to your hard drive? What happens when playing just a music file and what program are you using to stream ? XBMC Have you tried updating the drivers for the video card.

Thanks for the quick reply Socketman!

Well, it does it with all of my videos, music, etc. I am unsure what you're asking by "Are you playing back video that has been ripped and compressed to your hard drive?". It does it on Netflix, videos and music on hard drive, and almost all of my programs on my computer that output sound...It does it on Itunes, Spotify, Windows Media Player, and even FL Studio...As for the VGA drivers..I have the latest 13.2 Catalyst Beta drivers..

You indirectly gave me an idea though (unsure if it could cause problems or not). Could it be because I have an SSD, because I know for certain that I have serious issues while using FRAPS with my SSD (It's an extremely old SSD, the ones that had extremely high write speeds but very weak write speeds)...I mean, it would make sense too seeing that all of my video games are on my Seagate HDD and this issue doesn't pertain to them.

EDIT: I understand what you're asking now..Yes, it does do it to media written to my hard drive.
