This device does not support PCM audio required to play this channel/recording

Postby mr@hoeve.us » Tue Mar 13, 2018 5:09 am

On windows 10, the HDHomerun app gives me this message...
"This device does not support PCM audio required to play this channel/recording"
...Every time I power off the TV and HDMI switching audio receiver and power them back on.

Setup: Windows 10 HDMI --> Yamaha 5.1 HDMI switching receiver --> Visio TV

Is there any way to fake out the Windows box and/or HDHomeRun app to ignore the HDMI disconnect?

Thanks!

I have an annoying issue where when I turn off my monitor and then turn it back on Windows has resized any open windows I had. Apparently, this is a quirk of the Dell U2415, and I'm hoping this device will fix that.
