You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
I recently rebuilt my HTPC using this board running Windows 10 Pro and have it connected to my sound bar using an optical cable. In the past couple of months the sound has been fading in and out quite badly, but quite inconsistently. It's best with Plex and worst with Netflix, Spotify, and HBOGo.
There's nothing installed on the box except for Chrome, VLC, Spotify, some NZB downloading and cataloging programs, and Plex. I've tried installing updated sound drivers but the latest seems to be from 10/2015.
