Ok, having some sound dropout issues, seems to be with Dolby Digital (not sure about DTS). Not sure about music playback , will check that later too. Anyway during the course of a film I get 3 or 4 very brief sound dropouts, enough to be irritating! This is using the spdif output on my Asus A8V deluxe motherboard. Any ideas how to cure this or will it be a case of getting a soundcard and hoping that does the job? Cheers, Andy.
