Missing Click sounds with Digital output (1 Viewer)

Does anyone know how to overcome the annoying issue with digital output? It seems recievers takes (around 1 second) to determine the details of the source signal. What this means is that the (first) click within media portal cannot be heard.

Is there a fix for this in media portal? Or does every digital audio users just deal with it?

Thanks

    Some receivers are faster than others, some soundcards / drivers do "fallback" fro, DD/DTS, etc. This is really an "issue" were MediaPortal isn't involved at all...

    Sorry, it can't just fix your coffee machine to run out of water ;)

    I was thinking along the lines of always turning the receiver on by sending a noiseless sound (stereo sound). So when a click comes thru, the click is played?

    I know it isn't a media portal specific problem just thinking if it could be solved by a workaround :D

    e.g. make the coffe machine be connected to the water supply so that it can refill itself with water :D

    It is the on board sound (thru coaxial digital) on the Asus M2a-vm HDMI.

    2 things you can try:
    1. check if your soundcard can work with AC3 (permanent stream>)
    2. consider that sounds like clicks are in mono. So if you have no center speaker in some cases you will hear stereo but not the center where the click comes.
    3. try to config hdmi sound to test it working in stereo.

    ok for 2.
    1. you have to check Audio chip driver and first look if it can. its a question of what manufacturer. in most cases its not AC3 just PCM: check the manual of sound.
    Sorry more I cant help.
