    The problem is that MP tries to use an audio device that is not present as it is an external audio renderer. This is a general design issue of selecting stuff in Configuration.exe that is later never checked again if it is really available.

    Applies to everything that is not always inside the PC - e.g. USB headphones for example of WiFi audio devices. Not really related to HDMI. HDMI is just a promiment thing here.

    I have got this problem.
    I had disabled in the bios my onboard audio chipset too.
    Since I reenable it, it's ok.

    We're in MP 1.6.0 currently, and still nothing about this...

    Any ETA?

    Yes I saw JIRA, that's why I ask... It's been to mayor versions with no news about it.

    @Owlsroost, as I said some posts back:

    Believe me or not, enabling onboard audio makes my MP react with some delay to any key I press. It's weird, and it stays the same way even if I disable this audio device in windows. Only after disabling it in BIOS the delay disappears.

    Really strange all in all, but I prefer to deal with this bug till it's fixed than keeping my onboard audio enabled.
    That's why I don't want to enable onboard audio... :(
