Re: 5700 XT hdmi sound drops cuts

I'll repost here too: There are 3 pseudo-solution for this appart from going team green.

- Download and activate the dolby (the free version) : downsides sound still drop but muting, unmute kinda work.
- Put load on the card, like light benchmark as an old furmark : downsides > fan noise, power consumption.

- Try to go DP to HDMI, either directly with a cable or with an active adaptor : downsides > sometimes sound get distorted with noise, Often after a wake up from sleep. Just press mute and unmute. Also you may have good sound only in 1920x1080, 720 will be distorted, under 800x600 : no sound over 1080p can get some cut, over 1440 no sound again

THANK AMD FOR THIS! I wonder how you can still have the HDMI compliance... 

This is not really a software bug, it's a driver/hardware bug, ' seems like AMD cannot find out how to cope with their DPC latency and ISR execution time.

Re: 5700 XT hdmi sound drops cuts

I have found a very strange (and sub-optimal for most) solution to this audio dropping issue that has so far worked flawlessly for 2 days:

- Turn of HDR and Wide Color Gamut in windows 10

- Attached a second display via displayport and duplicate the display and your TV/projector (which is connected via HDMI)


I have no idea why this works but I've gone from skips/drops every 30 seconds for dolby digital plus content to none since doing the above. I searched so hard for "onkyo skips/drops audio" only to find out it's my GPU! I almost returned my receiver because of this!!

What a mess... At least I got the 5700xt on a really hot deal. 

Hope this helps some folks. I know losing HDR is a big bummer for those with nice TVs. I happen to be on a projector for which HDR looks worse, or at least no better than SDR.
