    Audio Issues Switching Between HDMI Inputs


    Having problems with audio when switching between HDMI Inputs. Have tried updating drivers, changing output devices, windows audio restart, switching which HDMI they are on, changed HDMI cords etc. NOTHING works. We have a PC in HDMI 3 and a PS4 in HDMI 2. HDMI 2 always works fine. However, when switching back to the PC, we MUST restart the PC when we switch inputs back to it in order to receive audio.

    We also have the issue if we turn off the display and leave the pc running. We must restart the entire computer before we receive audio in the PC input. We are assuming this is a windows issue of some sort because we don't have the issue with the PS4 input. Only when we are on the PC.

    We have never had these issues before under the same setup for a few years now. Issues arose on their own in the past few months,

    Any suggestions?

    That is because the Switcher that you are using does not keep that port alive to keep the HDCp handshake alive. Try a different powered HDMI switcher.

    Sorry I guess I do not understand entirely. We do not have an HDMI switcher set up. Our HDMI ports are all built into the TV itself. Is the switcher built into the television?

    If so, we have 3 HDMI ports on our TV. We have tried moving cords to different inputs.

    Thanks for the advice from an obvious newbie
