I have come across a weird problem with the sound on my computer.
When I play sound using the HDMI-output on my video card, through my home cinema receiver, it stutters. For a long time the audio have stuttered every 2 second, but after a check today, it only appears about every 10 second.
Here are the components I use:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit OS
ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE motherboard
Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 3GB video card
Denon AVR-1611 receiver
I have tried:
Using other sound outputs like headset and speakers– did work
Switching to another HDMI – did not work
Using another computer with the same HDMI – did work
Switching channel on the receiver – did not work
Going around the receiver, plugging the HDMI directly from my video card to my screen, using the speakers on the screen – did work
Using other sound sources like my Xbox, through the receiver – did work
Making sure the HDMI was plugged in correctly – did not work
Uninstalling and re-installing the sound driver on my computer – did not work
Clean-uninstall video card driver, and re-install it - did not work
Changing from 16-bit/48kHz to 24-bit/96kHz - did not work
That means that the problem lies in the computer, but it is weird that it only appears when the sound goes through my receiver
The last option I haven’t tried is to re-install windows, but I hope there are better solutions that I can try before I do that.
What I am asking is: Is this a software or hardware problem? If software, what can I do to fix it? If hardware, is it the motherboard, the video card or just the receiver (or something else) that I have to switch out (I have warranty on everything)?
Make sure to ask if there is something else that you need to know
PS: Sorry for any mistakes on my english
