I am having an issue where if I set the General setting of "Turn off monitor when screen blanks". Essentially I have music playing and then after 60 seconds when the screen blanks and the monitor shuts off it also shuts down the sound output to the TV via HDMI.

If on the other hand I set the MP cofig to blank the screen but not turn off monitor in the General settings, all is fine. Can someone else confirm this. Is this a bug? Is there a way around this?

Your help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
