[AE] XBMC constantly hogging audio device
Fair suggestions. Trying to get each platform to follow expected behaviour has been the issue, especially for Linux and Android, and the work really needs to be done in the sinks to keep the engine as generic as possible. That said, devs for those platforms have been working hard on this as it's been identified as a blocker.

There's a catch-22 on Linux especially: many users need audio to suspend to release it for external players or to reduce CPU usage when idle, some need it to "stream silence" so their receivers don't drop the input, and in many ALSA/hardware configs ALSA does not seem to play nicely in it's own pause routines, nor being stopped and restarted. It caused audio to crap out on some systems. Turning that feature off lead to this issue of hogging the device.
System: XBMC HTPC with HDMI WASAPI & AudioEngine - Denon  AVR-3808CI  - Denon DVD-5900 Universal Player  - Denon DCM-27 CD-Changer
- Sony BDP-S580 Blu-Ray  - X-Box 360  - Android tablet wireless remote - 7.1 Streem/Axiom/Velodyne Surround System
If I have been able to help feel free to add to my reputation +/- below - thanks!
