Okay im using HDMI audio and everything works fine on streaming, movies and music.

However there is a annoying "click" noise sound each time the audiodevice starts playing or stops playing sounds. (prolly initialize audio device)

Is this common when using hdmi or am i the only one ? Think it's not good for my speakers in the long run...

Im on svn:21833 rest is in my sig.
I am testing this setup to get ride of spikes/statics on SPDIF when switching track.
Seem to be working. Do not have that problem on HDMI though.

(I haven't used this one for HDMI)
@ theboxhead,

I also had this problem with HDMI from my P5N7A-VM motherboard to my Sharp Aquos hdtv, which then output audio via optical to my logitech surround sound speakers. Turned out that the TV's passthrough was unable to handle the surround-sound and would cause a horrible 'crackling' noise whenever a movie would start or get unpaused. I ended up just running optical from my motherboard to my logitech speakers directly.
