I have a desktop with ASUS P9X79 Deluxe motherboard and ATI Radeon HD 7950 video from Sapphire. The machine is pretty new and I am just now starting to use it more. It is connected to a TV over HDMI and has speakers connected on the front panel (going to the motherboard).
I have a strange problem:
- When there are sounds e.g. from a game everything works fine on the TV over the HDMI cable. The sounds are perfect, no problem at all.
- When I play a sound file or a movie or a youtube video and use the speakers (motherboard audio) it works fine.
- However when I play a sound file or a movie or a youtube video and use the TV as audio output, the sound stops every 2-5 seconds, just like it does when the PC is not powerful enough and blocks one application until it does something else (as was the case with older machines).
I have Radeon Catalyst 12.6 with AMD Audio Driver 188.8.131.5206 which I use to control the output device.
