HOW TO - Fix Loss of HDMI Audio After Resume from Sleep Using EDID Override

This tutorial is to address the loss of sound caused by the disconnection of an audio device after Windows resumes from Sleep. This commonly occurs when display and audio devices are connected via HDMI to a PC. Although the device is connected, Windows believes it has been turned off and sound is cut-off. A reboot of Windows will fix this issue in most cases, but this is not a permanent solution. This happens most often when Windows is put to Sleep rather than powered off completely.
