I remember reading a post about fixing audio dropouts and maybe with asound.conf file or the like. I have searched and searched the wiki and the forums with no luck. If someone can remember where that post is at, I could really use the link to it.
This was only happening at the very beginning of a movie initially now it seems to have increased by two to three times per movie with DD, DTS, Stereo. All on the SPDIF input though. Has anyone played with the Asus 7.1 Cards at all. I may just get another X-plosion 7.1 and use it they work perfectly all the time with the C-media chipset and no varying volume problems etc..
